The festive cover for this volume of Akroterion celebrates half a century of the existence of the journal, originally known as “Newsletter / Nuusbrief”. Over the past five decades a great number of classicists – many of them already deceased - have contributed articles, book reviews and didactic material for publication. Without their input it would not have been possible to publish the journal; we therefore dedicate this volume to all these colleagues who, as lovers of the classical world and its heritage, have shared their inexhaustible enthusiasm with our readers over the past fifty years. The hard work of all who have refereed articles with care and helped to ensure the high quality of the journal is also acknowledged with appreciation, as is the work done by previous editors.
