"The handbook illustrates 94 Greek literary papyrus texts from Egypt and Herculaneum and documents the different types of scripts used in copying works of Greek literature, from the earliest surviving bookrolls written in the 4th century BC up to the first century AD. The aim is twofold: (1) to establish their relative (and, wherever possible, absolute) chronological sequence, and (2) to distinguish and characterize their stylistic features. Specimens of different types of scripts ("hands") that appear stylistically related have been grouped together. In their joint introduction, the authors summarize the main results of their investigation and attempt to identify the social and cultural factors that have determined the development of different types of Greek literary scripts during the Hellenistic and Augustan era. The book also contains a comprehensive bibliography and indices." "Hellenistic Bookhands is a tool for scholars and students of Classics, Greek papyrology, palaeography, and the transmission of Classical Greek literature."--Jacket

Main description: The volume, published to mark Herwig Maehler's 70th birthday, contains 19 of his articles and papers, offering a selection from the research contribution of a Classicist who has explored very diverse areas of the Ancient World, combining them in productive and imaginative ways. The papers reprinted here (some in slightly revised and updated form) concern Homer, Greek, lyric poetry, Attic tragedy, the ancient novel, Hellenistic poetry, Greek palaeography, art and sculpture under the Ptolemies and various other aspects of daily life in Graeco-Roman Egypt. This selection will be of interest not only to Classical scholars but to anyone interested in the culture of Graeco-Roman-Antiquity

The Vienna epigrams papyrus (G 40611)( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This papyrus (3rd century BC) contains c. 200 incipits (first lines) of Greek epigrams with a numeral at the end of each line that gives the number of lines of the complete epigram; most of them had 4 lines. Of these, only one has been ascribed to a known poet (Asklepiades), but it is by no means clear that all of them were his. Their publication, greatly aided by multispectral photography, is a very welcome addition to Hellenistic poetry
