Written sources from the ancient Near East and eastern Mediterranean, from the third to the first millennia BC, provide a wealth of terms for textiles. The twenty-two chapters in the present volume offer the first comprehensive survey of this important material, with special attention to evidence for significant interconnections in textile terminology among languages and cultures, across space and time. For example, the Greek word for a long shirt, khiton , ki-to in Linear B, derives from a Semitic root, ktn . But the same root in Akkadian means linen, in Old Assyrian a garment made of wool, and perhaps cotton, in many modern languages. These and numerous other instances underscore the need for detailed studies of both individual cases and the common threads that link them. This example illustrates on the one hand how connected some textiles terms are across time and space, but it also shows how very carefully we must conduct the etymological and terminological enquiry with constantly changing semantics as the common thread. The survey of textile terminologies in 22 chapters presented in this volume demonstrates the interconnections between languages and cultures via textiles.

Review:

'this is an impressively edited and beautifully finished volume which will be an obligatory reference work for future authors studying textiles in Ancient Near East and the eastern Mediterranean area.'--Jaume Llop-Radua "Aula Orientalis, 2013 "

...bildet dieser Band einen zentralen Beitrag fur die Erforschung der antiken Textilwirtschaft abseits der Archaologie, bietet er doch eine profunde Zusammenschau des Kenntnisstandes zu einzelnen Regionen bzw. Sprachraumen wahrend der Bronze- und Eisenzeit, die wertvolle Anregungen auch fur Historiker und Philologen spaterer Epochen geben kann, Stoffe und Gewander in ihre For-schungen einzubeziehen.--Kerstin Dro-Krupe "Marburger Beitrage Zur Antiken Handels-, Wirtschafts- Und Sozialgeschichte, Vol. 30, 2012 "

I found the book incredibly stimulating, and a worthy addition to the terminologist's bookshelf.--Melanie Maradan "LSP Journal of Copenhagen Business School, Vol. 5, No. 1 (2014) "

This volume will be a valuable resource for specialists working in the field, and will also be useful for non-specialist readers with an interest in textile studies or in ancient eastern Mediterranean and Near Eastern economy and society.--Joanne Cutler "Ancient West & East, Volume 13 (2014) "
