organized by

Institut für Alte Geschichte und Altertumskunde, Papyrologie und Epigraphik der Universität Wien

Abteilung Byzanzforschung (Institut für Mittelalterforschung) der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften

Institut für Klassische Philologie, Mittel- und Neulatein der Universität Wien

within the framework of the project FWF P 28112-G25 "Scythica Vindobonensia" of the Austrian Science Fund


Venue: Universität Wien, Sky Lounge, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, A-1010 Vienna


The conference undertakes to deal with the Scythica Vindobonensia — the new fragments on Gothic incursions into Roman provinces in the Balkans in the middle of the 3rd cent. AD, coming most probably from the Scythica by Dexippus — in their historical and historiographical contexts, from the Roman to the Byzantine Era, and will be open to contributions from Ancient History, Classical Literature and Byzantine Studies.
