TAKTIKON: Studies on the Prosopography and Administration of the Byzantine themata,
eds. Olga Karagiorgou, Pantelis Charalampakis, Christos Malatras, Academy of Athens:
Research Centre for Byzantine and Post-byzantine Art 2021 (900 p., ISBN: 978-960-404-392-7)

This volume presents the first results of the TAKTIKON Research Project on the administration and prosopography of the
Byzantine themata, which is being realised at the Academy of Athens by Olga Karagiorgou (Principal Investigator), Christos
Malatras and Pantelis Charalampakis, as well as the communications delivered during a One-day International Workshop
organised in the framework of the same project

The introductory chapter (Part I) describes the aims and the methodological principles of the TAKTIKON Research Project,
addresses some key questions concerning the institution of the Byzantine themata in relation to the results presented in
the volume, and offers a description of the TAKTIKON online database (O. Karagiorgou). Part II includes a paper on the use
of the terms “Eoa, Anatole, Anatolikoi” in the Byzantine literary tradition (A. Kontogiannopoulou), as well as detailed
studies on the strategoi of Hellas (O. Karagiorgou), and the prosopography and administrative structure of Opsikion (C.
Malatras), the Anatolikoi (C. Malatras), and the Kibyrraiotai (P. Charalampakis), based on the evidence provided by
sigillographic and non-sigillographic sources. The studies on Hellas and the three Asia Minor themata are accompanied by
appendices presenting for the first time detailed chronological lists of thematic officials, as well as complete records of a
total of 1110 relevant thematic molybdoboulla. These were put together by the research team during the personal
inspection of sigillographic collections and/or the meticulous study of relevant publications. More than 80 (published and
unpublished) state and private sigillographic collections in 17 countries, as well as the (printed and online) sale catalogues
of more than 40 auction houses have been studied, so far, for the purposes of the TAKTIKON Research Project.

Parts III and IV of the volume present papers by the participants of the One-day International Workshop at the Academy of Athens: N. Alekseienko (Correspondents of Byzantine
Cherson), O. Alf?orov (Seals of Eustratios Chrysoberges), V. Bulgurlu (Seals from the Museum of Miletos), J.-C. Cheynet (Sceaux parisiens; Sceaux dans la collection Savvas
Kofopoulos, Lesbos), N. Elam (Seals from eleven museums in Turkey), E. Güzel Erdoğan and V. Prigent (Sceaux au musée d?Adana), E. Stepanova (Seals from the Hermitage), I.
Jordanov (Byzantine Eastern armies in the Balkans), T. Kourempanas (Σφραγίδες με απεικονίσεις αετών), V. Stepanenko (The family of Artzruni) and Z. Zhekova (Thematic seals
from Bulgaria). The authors discuss more than 230 Byzantine lead seals (in their overwhelming majority previously unpublished), kept in private and state collections in
Bulgaria, France, Greece, Russia, and the Ukraine, which are relevant to the administration and the prosopography of Byzantine Asia Minor.

The publication of the TAKTIKON volume was kindly supported by the Foundation Janet Zacos for the Study of Byzantium (Geneva), the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, the Capuano Insurance Brokers S.A., Eurolife FFH and Generali Hellas.
