Overview

Yale Classical Studies volume XXVIII is devoted to papyrology, which celebrated its centenary as a branch of classical studies in the eighties. The volume embraces all the principal facets of papyrological study: editions and re-editions of texts and papers - ranging from brief pieces to comprehensive studies - in the many areas of classical antiquity in which our knowledge has been so immeasurably enriched by the discovery and decipherment of Greek and Latin papyri, viz. language, government, social and economic history, law and private life. Some of the papers also have interdisciplinary ramifications and the international co-operation that has characterised papyrology from its inception is here readily apparent in the names, different languages and institutional affiliations of the contributors.
