papyrus containing on the recto a treatise on metre, and on the verso
elaborate scholia to the 21st book of the Iliad. There are also frag-
ments of a lost epic poem, another comedy, an historical work, orations,
&c, while extant classical authors will be represented by eai-ly pieces
(amongst others) of Euripides, Plato, Thucydides, Demosthenes, and
Xenophon. Of Homer there is a tolerably large roll, containing nearly
300 lines of the 5th book of the Iliad, written on the verso of a long and
important official document concerning the rights of married women,
which presents many difficulties of decipherment. It is our intention to
group the non-literary papyri together chronologically, and the next
volume will consist mainly of 1st century a.d. documents.
