Empire in crisis: Gothic invasions and Roman historiography


3.-6. Mai 2017

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.
