Module overview

An introduction to the study of Greek papyri, documentary as well as literary. Each class will focus on a small number of texts, one or two of which will be studied in detail on a photograph. The texts are chosen to illustrate the development of Greek bookhands and cursive scripts; to examine formal aspects of the transmission of Greek literature on papyrus; and to give an idea of the range of documentary types available as sources for the history of Graeco-Roman Egypt.
