Today's state of the art is reflected in the volume's contents which include editions and reeditions of texts, and papers 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, private life. Some of the papers also have interdisciplinary ramifications, and the international cooperation that has characterised papyrology from its inception is here readily apparent in the names, languages and affiliations of the contributors..
