Print publication inform
The following copyright information applies to the printed volume this site accompanies, P. M. Allison, The Insula of the Menander in Pompeii vol iii: The Finds, a Contextual Study (Oxford University Press 2006), and from which the data has been compiled.
The bespoke database engine behind this site was developed by the Web Team and Dr Richard Mobbs, Head of Web Design and eLearning, University of Leicester.
This on-line companion comprises a digital database that was compiled by Penelope Allison from the excavation notebooks and artefacts held in the collections of the Soprintendenza archeologica di Pompei. It includes photographs taken by Joyce Agee and Penelope Allison and digitised by the Photography Department, Australian National University, and drawings by Michele Varchetta, Sally Cann (British School at Rome), and Penelope Allison. The drawings were inked by Sue Bird, with some assistance from Mandy Mottram (Australian National University), and digitised by Oxford University Press. The Insula plan was drawn by S. Gregory, J. S. Gregory and D. Murdoch and digitised from Ling 1997: figure 24.
Further to the support acknowledged in the companion printed volume I am especially grateful to the late Professor Ross Scaife for including this database on the Stoa Consortium website and for his commitment to the development of both this database and the Pompeian Households site as open access publications. His death in March this year is a great tragedy and I deeply regret that he was unable to see this project to completion. I am grateful to Dr Richard Mobbs (University of Leicester) for taking over this project and for designing and building the site at my home university, so that it could be linked to that of the Stoa Consortium. And I would like to thank Ms Dot Porter (University of Kentucky) for ensuring that this site is operational, despite these sad circumstances. Finally I would like to thank Professor Pietro Giovanni Guzzo (Soprintendente archeologica di Pompei) for permission to include photographs of artefacts in the Pompeii collection in this on-line database.
