Akroterion is published annually by the Department of Ancient Studies,
University of Stellenbosch, with the financial support of the Classical
Association of South Africa. The journal publishes articles in English
or Afrikaans aimed at the non-specialist, covering all aspects of ancient
Greek and Roman civilization, but focusing especially on the influence and
reception of the Classics.
Akroterion had its humble beginning in April 1956 under the name
Newsletter/Nuusbrief. It was started by Prof. Frans Smuts, who was head of
the Latin Department, and was primarily planned as a means of contact
between the Department of Latin of the University of Stellenbosch and its
old students. The name Newsletter was replaced with Akroterion in 1970.
For more information about the history of the journal and the origin of its
name, follow the link to the history of Akroterion. The present logo is based
on the pedimental ornamentation of the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens.
