Published on behalf of the University of Warsaw by Lockwood Press, Palamedes is a journal devoted to ancient history. The fora where, within the frames of cultural history broadly defined, ancient historians, classical philologists, archaeologists, jurists, and epigraphists can meet with their Orientalist and Egyptological counterparts are still extremely rate. Palamedes seeks to provide such a forum.
