Item description for Iranica in the Achaemenid Period, Ca. 550-330 Bc: Lexicon of Old Iranian Proper Names and Loanwords, Attested in Non-iranian Texts (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta) by J. Tavernier...

This book collects and discusses the Old Iranian divine names, personal names, geographical names (toponyms, hydronyms and oronyms) and loanwords, which are attested in texts written in Aramaic, Babylonian, Egyptian, Elamite, Lycian, Lydian and Phrygian. The texts, both royal inscriptions and documentary texts, are discovered in the entire territory of the Achaemenid Empire (from Egypt to Bactria), which controlled the Ancient Near East from ca. 550 to 331 B.C. The Iranica discussed in this book are divided into four categories: (1) directly transmitted Iranica, (2) semi-directly transmitted Iranica, (3) foreign Iranica and (4) indirectly transmitted Iranica (the so-called "Altiranische Nebenberlieferung"). All expressions, which do not belong to one of these categories, are brought together in a section called "Incerta". The etymology and linguistic setting of each Iranian expression is studied and a list of occurrences is added to this analysis.

A master piece etymological dictionary on "Old Iranian" Proper Names.  Dec 23, 2009
Dr. Jan Tavernier's book titled "Iranica in the Achaemenid Period (ca. 550-330 B.C.) may mislead some readers into believing, the book may contain articles and essays on various topics pertaining to the Achaemenid Dynasty, would be surprised to find it a masterpiece etymological dictionary on "Old Iranian" proper names. The book is the first part of the revised version of his doctoral dissertation, funded by the Fonds voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek and was carried out within the Department of Oriental and Slavonic Studies at the Katholiek Universiteit Leuven, under the supervision of Professors K. Van Lerberghe and Pierre Swiggers. The tome of about 914 pages is veritably a "labour of love" and is a lexcion of "Old Iranian" proper names and loanwords culled from non-Iranian texts. The book notes and compares etymological definitions of words and phrases propounded by scholars like Friedrich von Spiegel, Christian Bartholomae, Wilhelm Eilers, Humbach Helmut, Mayrhofer Manfred, Rudiger Schmitt, Harold W. Bailey, Muhammad A. Dandamaev, Emil Benveniste, Ilya Gershevitch, Matthew W. Stolper, W. Skalmowski, and Ran Zadok to name a few. The Achaemenid Period is loosly defined as the time period in history between 550 to 330 B.C., during which the Achaemenid Dynasty of Persia flourished. The lexcion is divided into five catagories : [1] directly attested Iranica, [2] semi-directly attested Iranica, [3] non-Iranian proper names and loanwords, [4] indirectly attested Iranica, and [5] incerta. Every catagory is further divided into four parts : (a) names of deities, (b) personal names, (c), geographical names, and (d) loanwords. Each word is given a running index number and underneath it a copious list of references to various scholars offering their meanings of that word. One can open the book on any page to appreciate the immense labour gone into such a compilation.
The books is also annotated with an excellent bibliography of 38 pages which would serve a valuable reference source to budding scholars in "Old Iranian" onomastics. The book also has an excellent glossary and several tables and indices.
We are very grateful to Peeters Publishers for publishing it as Tome 158 in the "Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta" series, a work that should bring great glory to the author and the publisher for many years down the road of time.
