Abstract

A Polish translation, by Michał Wojciechowski, of the proverbs attributed to Aesop (based on Perry’s edition), with introduction and notes. These aphorisms exhibit a number of analogies to the Aesopic fables. Some may stem from Aesop, although it is impossible to say with certainty how many and which ones.

Abstract

The article presents an analysis of the Armenian translation of Plato’s Laws dating back to the so-called Hellenizing school (sixth–eighth century AD). The analysis is predominantly a linguistic one, although issues such as stylistics are touched upon as well. Thorough examination of the manifold ways of translating various Greek grammatical structures present in the text contributes to the wider discussion surrounding its dating.

Abstract

The aim of the article is to further narrow down the accepted date of the redaction and publication of Varro’s De lingua Latina. It is argued that Varro published De lingua Latina in late 45 BC / early 44 BC, when various changes affecting the Roman calendar were in progress. In addition, the author posits that a passage in Censorinus ( De die nat. 22, 9–13) attests to Varro’s altering his views on the etymologies of month names in a subsequent work.

Publication Ethics Policy

Publishing Ethics


“Meander” follows the guidelines of publishing ethics as laid out in the COPE Code of Conduct (https://publicationethics.org/core-practices). We accept only original articles which have not been published elsewhere; if the author is submitting a paper based on their previous work, they must diligently acknowledge this fact in the appropriate footnote. We are deeply committed to ensuring scholarly conscientiousness of the papers published in our journal and respect for the scholarly norms elaborated throughout the centuries of studies on Antiquity. We strongly encourage authors to heed carefully the guidelines for quoting or otherwise referencing the works and ideas of others; the scope both of verbatim quotes (placed in brackets) and of referencing the work of other scholars (introduced in a clear manner by statements such as “According to X…”, “As noted by Y…”) must be distinctly designated and an appropriate footnote containing a precise bibliographical entry of the work referenced must be supplied. Apart from exceptional, appropriately annotated cases, it is not allowed to use second-hand quotations; it is assumed as a general rule that the author has direct knowledge of all the works referenced in their paper. The editorial board is committed to the upkeep of ethical standards and will not allow any papers written with the use of unethical practices to be published. If such practices are detected – in particular the use of plagiarism – the article will be disqualified from being published in “Meander” and the author will be asked for an explanation.
The editorial board makes every effort to ensure that no conflict of interest arises during the review process. The reviewer is chosen from a research institution different from the author’s and the review process is double blind (the reviewer does not know the identity of the author and vice versa).

We treat seriously any allegations of misconduct or malpractice.

The editorial board is represented by the editor-in-chief, appointed by the Committee on Ancient Culture of the Polish Academy of Sciences and accountable before the Committee in accordance with the Committee’s regulations.

Peer-review Procedure

Peer Review Process

All research papers submitted to “Meander” undergo a review process as follows:

1. The editorial board approves the article for external review. If the article is not deemed to be of enough merit, the editorial board can reject it without the external review process taking place (desk rejection). Articles should be prepared according to the guidelines for authors available online or on the third page of the cover of every issue of “Meander”. Failure to comply with the guidelines may result in returning the article to the author for corrections at an earlier stage.

2. Every paper approved for review is sent to an independent reviewer who is not associated with the author’s research institution. The reviewers are experts in their respective fields, chosen according to the subject matter of the submitted article. The editorial board informs the author about submitting their article for review.

3. The review process is anonymous, the identity of both the reviewer and the author is concealed (double blind review).

4. The reviewer recommends the article for publication, correction, or rejection.

5. Basing on the review, the editorial board decides to accept the article, return it to the author for correction, or reject the article. The editorial board discloses the content of the review to the author and informs them of the outcome regarding their text, suggesting necessary corrections if need be. In some cases, especially if there arises the need for far-reaching corrections, the editorial board can have the article reviewed again, by a second reviewer, after its resubmission.

6. If the review process is taking more than three months and the author has not heard about its outcome, they should contact the editorial board. Please do not enquire about your article before that time.

7. Accepting the article for publication does not mean it will be published exactly in the form it was submitted as all papers undergo a thorough editing process (with the author’s permission).

8. Materials which are not of a strictly scholarly nature – such as reviews, obituaries, interviews, reports, literary works – are not in general submitted to external review, but they may be if the need arises.
