In Memoriam Alexandru Avram
With heavy heart, we inform you of the unexpected and sudden death of our colleague and friend, Alexandru Avram, on the 4th of August at Histria during the excavation season. He died before the age of 65.
As you know, he is one of the most famous scholars in the field of amphorae and Greek epigraphy, we shall remember him for his brilliant mind, but also his kindness and generosity. His work will stay a model and a reference for future generations.
He was a member of the Scientific Committee of our recent Round Table PATABS IV and he participated in a presentation dedicated to the Rhodian stamps in Istros, the city which has received his last breath. We wish to dedicate the publication of the Proceedings to his memory.
We would like kindly to ask our colleagues participants who knew him to send a text with a memory, an anecdote, and anything they wish and we shall collect them in the first pages of the volume.
