Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica

THE AWOL BLOG: Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica 2020. Roman Cyrenaica (in North Africa) was one of the sites of the "Kitos War," the Jewish revolt of 115-117 CE. The revolt is poorly documented and we know little about it. Some of the inscriptions in this corpus pertain to the Jewish community of Cyrenaica both before and after the revolt. Background here and here.
