SUBMISSION GUIDELINES AHB adheres to the usual North American editorial policies in the submission and acceptance of articles but imposes no House Style. Authors are, however, asked to use the abbreviations of L’Année philologique (APh) for journals, and of the Thesaurus linguae latinae (TLL) for Latin authors. Please direct submissions to Timothy Howe ( Submission of articles must be sent as .doc (or .docx) files in the form of email attachments (or in some other acceptable electronic form; e.g. Drop Box, Google Drive). PDF files should be submitted in addition to the .doc file when the article contains Greek or other fonts; Greek text should be entered using Unicode.  Authors will receive PDF offprints of their contributions.  Copyright is retained by the author. Book reviews are now (beginning with the 2011 publication year) published online (AHB Online Reviews). Books for review and enquiries concerning reviews should be directed to Joseph Roisman (

AHB promotes scholarly discussion in Ancient History and ancillary fields (such as epigraphy, papyrology, and numismatics) by publishing articles and notes on any aspect of the ancient world from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity. Although contributors are encouraged to submit articles in English, submissions in French, German, Italian, and Spanish are welcome. AHB appears twice per year in double-issues (1-2 and 3-4).
