Τhe journal Tekmeria, Contributions to the History of the Greek and Roman World, began publication in 1995 in Thessaloniki, at the initiative of Ioannis Touloumakos, then Professor of Ancient History at the University of Thessaloniki, Angelos Chaniotis, then Professor of Ancient Greek History at Heidelberg University and now Professor of Ancient History and Classics at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. At this first phase, eight volumes were issued (volumes 1-8). The Centre for Greek and Roman Antiquity (KERA) –Department of Greek and Roman Antiquity of the Institute for Historical Research since 2012 - has undertaken since 2008 to continue publication of the journal. In this new phase of its existence as a peer reviewed open access journal, the editorial board consisted of Dimitrios Pantermalis, Angelos Chaniotis, Charalampos Kritzas, Pantelis Nigdelis and Miltiades B. Hatzopoulos, while Angelos P. Matthaiou served as editor. At this second phase, two additional volumes were issued (volumes 9 and 10). Since 2012, the editorial board of Tekmeria consists of KERA serving four-year terms (for the period 2012-2015, Kalliope Kritikakou-Nikolaropoulou, Evangeline Markou, Maria-Gabriella Parissaki and Paschalis Paschidis) while the International Advisory Board, from volume 12 onwards, will consist of Alexandru Avram, Kostas Buraselis, Angelos Chaniotis, Denis Feissel, Miltiades B. Hatzopoulos, Charalampos Kritzas, John Ma, Patrick Marchetti, Pantelis Nigdelis and Christof Schuler.
The journal Tekmeria continues to publish scholarly articles pertaining to the study of the ancient world, with particular emphasis on Ancient Greek history, epigraphy, numismatics, topography and historical geography, and especially on the publication, republication or exploitation of epigraphic and numismatic materials. Tekmeria accepts submissions in Greek, English, French, German and Italian.
