The Prosopography was very much A. H. M Jones's project. He raised and managed the finances; he organized accommodation and generally exercised control, though with a loose rein. Already in 1966 he was planning to bring one of his former pupils, Dr Mustapha Abbadi, over to Cambridge to work for the Prosopography. However, the death of Jones came as a devastating blow. That it was all sorted out so quickly and efficiently was due in very large part to Moses Finley and the British Academy, which adopted the Prosopography as one of its major research projects, as well as to the goodwill towards Jones and the project among many leading scholars.
