Edited by: N Gonis, W B Henry, F Maltomini, S Slattery

  • Hardback | In Stock | £85.00

  • Hardback | Not Available | $170.00


The core of this volume is the biggest concentration of magical papyri published in some 25 years, giving a fascinating insight into approaches to averting and treating illnesses, and attracting a partner. Further material contains theological texts (Philo), extant classical texts (Menander, Theocritus, Euclid, Polybius, Plutarch), and a new classical text (Sophokles).


"The volume is carefully and elegantly typeset and furnished with useful indices and plates, illustrating the literary and para-literary texts, the drawing, and selected documents... It remains only to congratulate the editors and the Egypt Exploration Society on an achievement that will surely advance the understanding of Greek literature, and of society in Roman and Byzantine Egypt and its Mediterranean surroundings."
Michael Zellmann-Rohrer, Oxford, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2017.06.39
