Author Guidelines

  1. “Eos” welcomes articles (up to 40 pp.), notes (up to 4 pp.) and reviews (up to 10 pp.) written in Latin, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

  2. Contributions submitted to “Eos” must not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publishing elsewhere (either in whole or in part, in any language).

  3. All papers should be typed in one-and-a-half spacing (footnotes included) on A4 paper with ample margins. All Greek must be typewritten using Unicode fonts (preferably New Athena).

  4. Please submit an electronic version in Word for Windows format or in RTF if you use another system.

  5. Use italics for emphasis and in very short quotations from Latin authors. Put longer quotations in “inverted double commas”. Avoid, unless necessary, very long quotations from Greek. Greek quotations should be accompanied by translation.

  6. Please avoid very long and very short footnotes. Simple references to ancient authors may be placed in parentheses in the text.

  7. In referring to ancient authorities please conform to the following principles:

  • for abbreviating Greek and Latin authors and their works follow, in general, OCD3 (but add, when appropriate, a consonant at the end: Plut., not Plu.);

  • use Roman numerals for books in ancient authors (Hom. Od. VII 36 but not Catull. LI 8); also, separate the number of a chapter from that of a paragraph with comma and spacing (Thuc. I 22, 4);

  • for inscriptions follow SEG and L’Année épigraphique.

  1. Please refer to modern authorities as follows:

  • E. Norden, Aus altrömischen Priesterbüchern, Lund–Leipzig 1939, pp. 144 f. / Norden, op. cit. (n. 7), pp. 144 f. (not 144–145).

  • H. Erbse, Beiträge zum Pindartext, Hermes LXXXVIII 1960, pp. 23–33 (not, if possible, 23 ff.).

  • E. Badian, The Early Historians, in: T.A. Dorey (ed.), Latin Historians, London 1966, pp. 1–38 (rather than Latin Historians, ed. by T.A. Dorey).

  • C. Koch, Vesta, RE VIII A, 2 (1958), col. 1732, 25–28 (not 25–8).

Alternatively, add a bibliographical appendix listing all works cited in your paper and refer to them in footnotes in a simplified form: Norden 1939: 144 f. Please note that this system is to be preferred for longer papers and those with many bibliographical references. Do not use it for reviews.

Use Roman numerals for volumes of books and periodicals. Put family names of modern authorities (also editors, translators, etc.), in both text and notes, in Small Capitals (not in CAPITAL LETTERS). Abbreviate journal titles in accordance with L’Année philologique (exceptions possible, if justified). Please adjust bibliographical references to the language of your contribution (in a paper written in German, use “hrsg.” and not “ed.” or “a cura di”, regardless of the language of a reference cited). However, state places of publication as they appear in a cited book (München, not Munich).

  1. All articles should be accompanied by an abstract, of about 100-200 words, preferably in English.

  2. Authors of articles published in “Eos” will receive 20 offprints and a copy of the appropriate issue of the journal. Authors of notes and reviews will receive a copy of the appropriate issue of the journal.
