The Chiron is published by the Munich- based Commission for Ancient History and Epigraphy of the German Archaeological Institute . Epigraphic topics traditionally occupy a larger space in the journal than in other ancient historical journals, but articles on other fields of ancient history also appear.
The magazine, next to Klio and Historia, the third "large" German specialist organ for ancient history, was founded in 1971. In addition to German ancient historians, Anglo-Saxon, French, Italian and Spanish scholars regularly publish here, which gives the magazine an international audience and a great reputation. It appears once a year, usually in November. No reviews appear in the Chiron; for this purpose, each volume contains a list of the ancient history dissertations completed in Germany in the reporting year .
The magazine was published by CH Beck until 2005, and in 2006 the company switched to Walter de Gruyter . Since this year, the advisory board of the Commission for Ancient History and Epigraphy, made up of well-known German ancient historians, has been acting as an expert body.
