Message from Antony Augoustakis, CAMWS President

Dear Colleagues, 

What a successful meeting we had in Williamsburg last March! It was the biggest CAMWS meeting in our history, and I am confident that there will be many more of this size or even bigger. An amazing team of people were crucial to the success of the 112th Annual Meeting: the local committee, the College of William & Mary, the hotel staff, the musicians, Tom and Jevanie. I wish I could have attended all papers and sessions! I tried to be at most of the sessions, and I was very much pleased by the quality of the presentations and the attendance. The screening of Antony and Cleopatra on Wednesday night and the presentation on Roman hairstyling by Janet Stephens were a big success, as was also the Campaign for CAMWS Gala dinner on Saturday night. But above all, since CAMWS is all of us, it was a common effort that made this meeting a huge success, and therefore gratias vobis omnibus ago.

As I have already mentioned in previous newsletters, there is a number of initiatives on which we have been working all semester long. As you saw in Tom's email earlier this month, we are conducting a survey to assess how access to the Loeb Classical Library has been of use to you as members of CAMWS and what other resources would benefit your teaching and research. Many of you have already replied to the survey, and I urge the rest of you to do so by June 15 ( Q9RGC8X). We have also been working with Oxford University Press to provide a discount of 25% to members of our organization, and once we finalize the details, we will let you know how to use the discount. Finally, the Executive Committee has just approved a new award for collaborative projects between faculty and undergraduate students (, and I hope that this initiative will be of much value as well.

I would like to take this opportunity and thank the many contributors to the Campaign for CAMWS. During the Campaign we raised about $30,000 to support our Excavation and Field School Awards. In addition, we were able to raise a net profit of $2,500 from the very successful Gala on the 18th of March, featuring Jodi Magness' talk on the Huqoq Synagogue mosaics; the Gala was attended by members of the Williamsburg Greek community as well as CAMWS members. Many thanks are owed to Peter Knox who led the Campaign, Lily Panoussi and Tyler Jo Smith, as well as the Development Committee of CAMWS. It is our hope and goal in the future to build on this success of giving to our association.

As my presidency comes to an end next month, I would like to thank all CAMWS members for making this such a great organization! I had the chance to work with many of you on various and different matters and initiatives: this past year has been challenging at times but always very rewarding. I would also like to thank my predecessor in the position of editor for The Classical Journal, Laurel Fulkerson, as I look forward to serving our vibrant organization and our field as incoming editor.

Antony Augoustakis,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,
President, CAMWS

Report from Secretary-Treasurer, Tom Sienkewicz

Dear fellow members of CAMWS:


The spring issue of the CAMWS Newsletter is a good opportunity for Janus-like reflections as we look back on one academic year and look forward to a new one. I have very much enjoyed working with Antony Augoustakis, under whose presidency CAMWS had its largest meeting on record in Williamburg, Virginia. Our hosts at the College of William and Mary provided us with incredible colonial hospitality, great weather, and good fellowship. Together with Campaign chair Peter Knox, Antony spearheaded a very successful fund-raising campaign for the CAMWS excavation/ fieldwork scholarship, an effort with culminated in a memorable Gala Banquet at the end of the annual meeting. Optime factum, Peter and Antony!


I would also like to recognize Laurel Fulkerson who completes her term as editor of The Classical Journal. You should all have received by now the final issue of Vol. 111 and I am sure you will agree with me that Laurel well deserved the ovatio she received in Williamsburg for her outstanding work as editor. She leaves the journal in the good hands of her successor, Antony Augoustakis.


Another important feature of the out-going academic year was a new membership benefit, namely access to the Loeb Classical Library On-Line. Judging from the feedback we have received in the CAMWS office, this benefit is highly appreciated by many members, but President Augoustakis and the members of the CAMWS Executive Committee would like to hear your opinion about this benefit as well as other possible ones. If you have not done so already, please go to this link in Survey Monkey to answer two short questions by Wednesday, June 15, 2016.


I am also looking forward to working with Alden Smith of Baylor University, who succeeds Antony Augoustakis as president on July 1, 2016. Alden will preside at the 113th Meeting of CAMWS to be held in Kitchener, Ontario, at the invitation of the University of Waterloo. A call for papers has already been posted on the meeting website. If you are planning to go to Kitchener for CAMWS 2017 and do not have a valid passport, you might want to consider applying for one now. Another option for U.S, citizens would be a passport card.


I recently made a very successful visit to Cleveland, Ohio, which will be the site of CAMWS 2021, at the invitation of Case Western University. Paul Iverson, Peter Knox, Tim Wutrich and their colleagues promise to be excellent hosts and Cleveland will offer us many amenities, including many excellent restaurants as well as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


By the time you read this newsletter, I will have departed for a five-week pilgrimage walk on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain. In my absence my loyal administrative assistant, Jevanie Gillen, will be on call in the CAMWS office if you have any questions or concerns.


In late June or early July you will receive via email or groundmail a reminder about renewing your CAMWS membership for 2016-2017, but, f you want to beat the rush, you can renew now by submitting this membership form.


Let me close by thanking all of you for making 2015-2016 such a good year for CAMWS.


Tom Sienkewicz,

Monmouth College,

CAMWS Secretary-Treasurer

Campaign for CAMWS 2016

At the 2015 CAMWS meeting in Boulder, President Ruth Scodel announced the beginning of a campaign to raise funds to support CAMWS' recently established excavation/fieldwork scholarships.

Thanks to their hard work, $30,088.00 have been raised for these scholarships. CAMWS acknowledges the generosity of the following individuals who supported this campaign. The Campaign for CAMWS is closing on June 30th. It is not too late to make a contribution. Please see  this letter from Campaign Chair Peter Knox.

WHEREAS we members and friends of CAMWS have sailed up the James to the Revolutionary City, only to discover that while we have a first-rate Journal, we have no Μagazine; we have frequented its taverns, with no member placed in the stocks for cause yet; we have powdered our perukes and lengthened our skirts; we have discreetly taken up pipe or snuff;

WHEREAS we, royalists and revolutionaries alike, have availed ourselves of the freedom granted by their gracious Majesties in MDCLXXXXIII to pursue the artes liberales at the second-oldest college in America, and the first to become a university; we have earnestly sought to make φιλοσοφία the κυβερνήτης of our collective βίου; we have with dismay looked upon the displacement of the orderly system of cardo and decumanus by the Angulus Confusionis, and nonetheless returned successfully on foot to our tents at day's end; and we have trod in the vestigia left by Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, and Tyler too, to say nothing of the truly great, like Glenn Close and that recent magister of the spectaculum quotidianum;

WHEREAS the faculty, staff, and students of the College of William and Mary, and the local organizing committee, ably led by Georgia Irby and Lily Panoussi, have seen to our every need with such forethought and charm that even Antony and Cleopatra fell silent;

WHEREAS hours so happy and numerous have ne'er been held, with banquets and galas galore; we have had a chance to let our hair down, and then sew it back up in Roman fashion, in keeping with CAMWS' long-standing commitment to alleviate professional δυσ-tress;

WHEREAS we have no complaint to lodge against the Lodge, save that its attentive ianitores will soon make the παρακλαυσίθυρον a thing of the past; nor animus against the Inn, whose hospitality is inn-ate; and those who would fault the Woodlands are barking up the wrong tree;

WHEREAS the exhibitors in the Book Display have offered pleasing amenities in a locus amoenus;

WHEREAS the generosity of the Muscarelle Museum, like the Roman empire, knows no bounds;

WHEREAS many local merchants have exhibitied ξενία, preferring amicitia to avaritia;

BE IT RESOLVED that we doff our tricornered hats, straighten our caps and bonnets, and bow or curtsey to our magnanimous hosts, in accordance with the mos maiorum and socially constructed gender norms.


WHEREAS we 709 record-setting registrants have, in twelve paper sessions, and as many panels as there are canes Dalmaticae, and numerous roundtables and fora, renewed and deepened our acquaintance with the ancient world;

WHEREAS we have reaffirmed the centrality of teaching, the importance of research, and the fundamental sodality of students and teachers at all levels;

WHEREAS we have, as inhabitants of Urbs et Orbis, "visualized epic," and will soon be floored by Mosaic mosaics;

BE IT RESOLVED that we thank all the speakers, presenters, presiders, and discussion participants who have made this 112th Annual Meeting of CAMWS a resounding success, and depart from this Commonwealth to recolonize our 32 states and three provinces in the name of classical learning.


WHEREAS Monica Cyrino's accomplishments as banquet MC may lead future generations to call this chapter of our organization's history the Cyrinäika;

WHEREAS Michael Halleran, Provost of the College of William and Mary, welcomed us most warmly;

WHEREAS Edward Cook, Ann Corcoran, and said Michael Halleran were duly honored with CAMWS Special Service awards;

WHEREAS Katherine de Boer Simons was recognized for her authorship of the outstanding graduate student paper;

WHEREAS Herb Benario, our orator emeritus, consularis, and perpetual censor, has now lent the Plautine speech of James May his Tacit(ean) approval;

WHEREAS the same James May, now our orator of longest (and shortest) standing, delivered dandy ovationes celebrating Laurel Fulkerson, Mark Keith, and Timothy Winters;

WHEREAS Antony Augoustakis' performance of his imperial duties has caused his priestly cult, the Augoustakes Illinorum, to tie one on;

WHEREAS the incoming President Prof. Smith promises a return to the Alden days;

WHEREAS the unsinkable Secretary-Treasurer Tom Sienkewicz , the indefatigable Jevanie Gillin, Emma Vanderpool, and their other able assistants have once again accomplished the impossible on a daily basis;

BE IT RESOLVED εὐχαριστοûμε πάρα πολύ.


WHEREAS we have gaped at flowering trees, marveled at birdsong and honk of geese, and reveled in one of the sunniest Zeuses ever to grace a CAMWS meeting;

WHEREAS our academic encounters have prompted collaboration, evolution, and revolution on a continental scale;


1. that we complete our νόστοι safely, finding our οἶκοι in order upon our return;
2. that we reconvene next year, following the pole star to "the true north strong and free."


WHEREAS our northernmost colleagues once provided a place of refuge for unrepentant loyalists, we clutch our worry beads and sally forth, unafraid to meet our Waterloo.

And WHEREAS Canada perennially beckons to those who fear the post-election dominance of populares or opti-mates,

BE IT THEN FINALLY RESOLVED, eh, that we, alongside Trudeau pere, say what the puck, turn over new leafs, and save up our loonies and toonies to travel to that place where there is no darkness, at least in summer.

CJ 111.4:
  • Abstract: In fourth-century Athens jurors were assigned to ten sections in the tribe (A-K), then selected for duty (or excluded from it) in a multi-stage lottery. Scholars have assumed that jurors were assigned to their sections randomly, by lottery among the whole tribe. This paper argues that the letter-sections originally represented a framework for regional balance. The procedure described in Ath. Pol. and illustrated by surviving artifacts evolved from later developments, but early adaptations are reflected in scenes from comedy, and these together with other testimonies suggest that the letters were initially assigned by deme or trittys, to assure equal opportunities for jury service. .
  • Abstract: Cicero's appeals to antiquity with the term mos maiorum, or simply maiores, in his orations enable the orator to appeal to his audience's emotions, and to highlight their collective identity and cultural heritage as the proper basis for the decision he advocates. His usage is not strongly correlated with any chronological or generic subset of the orations, as is shown by a simple statistical analysis of their distribution. It is better understood as a strategic response to the circumstances particular to each oration, in a less formal sense.
  • Abstract: This paper supplements my Funny Words in Plautine Comedy (2010) by reinterpreting two famous "Plautine elements in Plautus." Part one (on Amphitryo 302-7) argues that the pun on Quintus (the name) and quattuor, "four," translates a pun in the Greek model on Pentheus and tettaras, "four." Part two (on Captivi 84) argues that rurant, "they are in the countryside," should be rorant, "they are glistening," sc. unguento, "with after-bath oil." The examples suggest Plautus' genius lay as much or more in inspired translation as it does in his "originality".
  • Abstract: In this paper I read the closing scene of the Aeneid through Aeneas' final speech, asking: What does it mean for Aeneas to say "Pallas te hoc vulnere, Pallas / immolat" at Aeneid 12.948-9? Drawing on intertexts from Iliad 22 and 24, I trace a sequence of thoughts suggested by the movement of Aeneas' eyes over Turnus' body. Quasi-cinematic features of 12.939-52 place the visible splendor of Pallas' balteus in tension with its horrifying past. Killing Turnus heals the resulting split between Aeneas' vision and his memory by reinstating the baldric's previous owner, binding Aeneas' and Pallas' lives together inexorably against Turnus' survival.
  • Abstract: As Seneca's Jocasta pleads with Polynices to cease his assault on his homeland and return into exile, she borrows language from Cicero's In Catilinam 1 and Sallust's Bellum Catilinae. As a result, Seneca brings the mythological world of the Phoenissae into dialogue with a moment of strife from Rome's past at a crucial moment in the unfinished tragedy's action. In doing so, the playwright uses the memory of Catiline to foreground Jocasta's fraught relationship with the citizen enemy to whom she gave birth.
  • Abstract: Ampelius 2.7 explains that Libra honors the inventor of the balance, the puzzling and much-emended personal name MOCHOS. Emendation is unnecessary: "Mōchos" is attested as an early Phoenician sage of Sidon, by Poseidonios, and in a translation by the Platonist Ofellius Laetus (ca. 75 CE). Ampelius may have drawn Mōchos and Libra from Ofellius, or like much of his lore on zodiacal constellations, from Nigidius, or from another unknown source. Ampelius explains two other zodiacal constellations similarly: Capricorn (2.10) honors Pan's defeat of Typhon in Egypt, and Pisces (2.12) honors Venus' birth from an egg found in the Euphrates.
  • Abstract: This paper describes a course entitled "Leadership and the Ancient World" and explains the challenges and trends in higher education which make a course focused on the Classics about leadership desirable. The paper summarizes conventional approaches to leadership and emphasizes the advantages of a liberal-arts based approach starting with the Classics. We explain our basic course design; offer a summary of how the course was run; and present sample activities. In closing, we present assessment and evaluation data for the course and remark on ways in which the syllabus and design could be improved in future iterations.

2016 CPL Outstanding State and Regional
CAMWS Vice-President Awards

Dr. Marcie Handler (Covington Latin School) earned this year's Outstanding State Vice-President Award for taking the initiative to contact the Kentucky Board of Education and to bring the lack of alternative certification paths for Latin teachers in the state to the board's attention. The State's Board of Education currently recognizes only one institution to certify new high school Latin teachers. This circumstance may be regarded as a possible hindrance and obstacle to the future of Classics in Kentucky. Thank you for your leadership and initiative, Marcie!


Dr. Stacie Raucci (Union College) earned this year's Outstanding Regional Vice-President Award for reaching out to each member of her constituency (At-Large Region) in the attempt to strengthen the ties between CAMWS and classicists outside CAMWS territory. According to her own report, she sent out over 350 emails. Thank you for taking the time to do this, Stacie!

Sherri Madden: Master's Academy, Matthews NC
Spring Trip to Washington D.C.

The Power and Pathos Exhibit at the National Gallery of Art was amazing! It was such a privilege to get to see firsthand the exquisite bronze sculptures of antiquity included in this exhibit. Some comments from the kids:
Jenna (13 years old): "I think it's interesting that I'm studying ancient history right now and I actually got to see works of art from that period of time."
Henry (11 years old): "I can't believe I got to see something that was so old but so well made that it still exists today!"
Molly (8 years old): "I was glad that I could see such amazing portraits and statues from people who have experienced making such masterpieces."
Mia (5 years old): "I liked the horse that Alexander rode on. It was so cool that he rode the horse!"
Everywhere we went, we noticed the Roman influences on the architecture, especially the arches, columns and domes with oculi on so many buildings. The children enjoyed identifying the various types of columns. The Jefferson Building, of the Library of Congress, was an especially impressive structure, both inside and out.  
Jenna: "I thought it was amazing to see such detail and beauty in something as simple as a building. It is incredible that Roman culture still has a big impact on American architecture."
Henry: "I recognized 3 different types of columns, that I learned about from my Latin teacher: corinthian, ionic, and doric."
Molly: "I loved the way that the columns curved at the top, and how beautiful the buildings were."
Mia: "I liked drawing the columns."
Jenna and Henry found the Giant Mainz Bible, on display at the Library of Congress, a wonderful opportunity to practice translating Latin. It was a special treat for them to be able to examine it with their Latin teacher, Sherri Madden!
Jenna: "It was exciting to use my knowledge of Latin to translate and understand a piece of history."
Henry: "It was so cool because we were able to translate the first few sentences in Genesis from Latin into English, in the Giant Mainz Bible."
While Jenna and Henry attended a congressional session with Mrs. Madden, I took Molly and Mia to a few sites. At the U.S. Botanic Gardens we got to see a beautiful orchid exhibition, and particularly noticed the Latin names of all the plants, posted throughout the atriums. We also saw lots of Latin names posted at the Museum of Natural History, next to specimens in the Insect Zoo.
Molly: "It was amazing how big and beautiful all the plants were at the botanic gardens. We read lots of Latin names next to them."
Mia: "The pretty plants were great."
Molly: "The rhinoceros beetle at the Insect Zoo was really cool. All the bugs had Latin names next to them."
Molly: "My favorite exhibit at the zoo was the bird house. My favorite animal is the avis. I liked seeing the panda bear. Its genus and species name is ailuropoda melanoleuca. I like to call it an ursa."
Mia: " My favorite was the ostrich, but I also liked the casa avis."

Philip Cortese: John Paul the Great Academy,  Lafayette, LA
Rome Trip

Because of the generosity of the CAMWS Group Travel Award, high school juniors from John Paul the Great Academy in Lafayette, La. were able to explore classical sites in and around Rome firsthand in October 2015. The academy had established an annual pilgrimage to visit spiritual sites in Assisi and Rome, but students had not been able to explore classical archaeological sites until this year. The award covered admission to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and Colosseum in Rome and transportation and admission to Ostia Antica, where students were particularly impressed with the mosaic pavements and multi-level insulae. Because of the success of this year's visit, the sites are established as part of the annual itinerary, and next year's pilgrims are already looking forward to visiting the newly opened imperial ramp and Santa Maria Antica in the fall.

UA Museum of Art and Classics Exhibit:
Rome: The Legacy of the Eternal City
and Satellite Events

Together with Olivia Miller, Curator of Exhibitions and Education at the University of Arizona Museum of Art, I developed the UA Art Museum exhibit entitled, "Rome: The Legacy of the Eternal City." In conjunction with the show, Olivia and I also collaborated on several satellite events connected to the exhibit for which we gratefully received CPL funds: 
  1. Teachers Workshop (K-12), September 25, 2015
  2. Symposium, October 6, 2015, entitled "Rome and Its Receptions" with plenary guest speaker Dr. Catherine Fruhan of DePauw University
  3. Evening of Poetry about Rome, UA Poetry Center, October 17, 2015
  4. Public Lecture, January 21, 2016, in the "Grand Tour Gallery" of the Art Museum by noted classicist Andrew Laird of the Warwick University and this year appointed Humanities Initiative Visiting Professor at Brown University (
All events were well-attended: there were ca. 150 for the Symposium plenary talk in an auditorium that holds 117 comfortably and the museum exhibit attracted over 2,000 K-12 viewers from the Tucson-Phoenix communities. The exhibit and related events were very successful in involving the wider Tucson and Phoenix (K-12 and ASU) communities, and also a broad swath of interrelated disciplines across campus.
Professor Laird's public lecture on January 21, 2016 marked the closing of the museum exhibit. His seminar for graduate students (January 22) and Honors undergraduates (January 21) revolved around his important recent work highlighting connections between Greece & Rome, Mexico, and the American Southwest. In a collaborative exchange with ASU, Professor Laird also delivered a lecture in Phoenix on Monday, January 25, 2016. Thank you for the CPL funding which contributed to all of these events, including airfare for our two guest speakers, lodging, meals, and the small reception at the Art Museum on the evening of Professor Laird's public lecture.


Rome's Birthday Celebrations

CFP: Symposium Campanum 2017
Recent Work in Vesuvian Lands: New Projects, Practices, and Approaches
October 5-8, 2017
Director: Steven L. Tuck, Miami University

The Vergilian Society invites proposals for papers for the 2017 Symposium Campanum at the Villa Vergiliana in Cuma, Italy.

This symposium is an opportunity for scholars to present papers on recent scholarship on Pompeii and Vesuvian lands. Our notion for the symposium is informed by three major premises, which we expect to be the major themes for the three days for the conference:
  • The uniqueness of the evidence that Pompeii provides about the ancient world. In addition to addressing this at Pompeii itself we hope some papers will extrapolate outward from that evidence to explore what the Pompeian evidence reveals about the larger ancient, especially Roman, world with a conscious awareness of the extrapolation that takes place.
  • An emphasis on contextualizing evidence both within Pompeii and without rather than presenting material in a vacuum or in isolation. We encourage scholars to submit proposals for synthetic papers that explore more than one type of evidence or explore under-considered implications for Vesuvian material.
  • We particularly wish to encourage abstracts from under-covered areas that can provide a holistic view of Vesuvian material: comparatively more on areas outside Pompeii such as extramural villas, industrial complexes, and rural life.

Papers will be 20 minutes long with ample time for discussion. Ideally we would like to circulate drafts prior to the symposium to facilitate dialogue. The symposium will include three days of papers, discussion, and visits to Vesuvian sites.


Interested scholars should send inquiries or an abstract of no more than 300 words to by October 1, 2016.

Classics in the News

Amy Ratto Parks' poem, "Verb of Being," a reverie on Latin class, was the winner of this year's Phi Beta Kappa Poetry Contest.
In April, The Guardian covered Euripides' power to speak to the human tragedies taking place in Syria: "Adaptation of Trojan Women starring Syrian refugees set for UK tour".

March brought us a carefully-crafted Latin cover of Adele's "Hello".

In February, BBC News explored the world of Pontic Greek: "Turkish mountains where they still speak Ancient Greek".

For many more Classics-related stories, like our Facebook page:

Obitus Recentes
