Varia Februaria

David Meadows alerts us that MEFRA (Mélanges de l'Ecole française de Rome. Antiquité) is available online via -- just select it from the drop-down menu. Unfortunately, many or most images are locked out in the free version.

Over at Current Epigraphy, Gabriel Bodard gives us the run-down on a lecture by Michael Crawford on
"Language, geography, and economy in early Italy."

For those lucky enough to reside in the greater Philadelphia metro area, there are a couple of events this week pertaining to early Italy:

Not sure what your experience with MEFRA was ... I've had no problem accessing it. Perhaps one has to enter via the 'home page' of persee and choose mefra from the drop down.
