Hellenistic and Roman Egypt : Sources and Approaches Hardback
Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series
This second collection by Roger Bagnall brings together a further two dozen of his studies, this time covering Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine Egypt, published over the last thirty years.
Many of the articles deal with issues of historical and papyrological method: the restoration of papyrus texts, the direction of archaeological work in Egypt, economic models for Roman Egypt, the usefulness of postcolonial theory, and approaches to the defective literary tradition for the Library of Alexandria.
Others concentrate on particular bodies of evidence, ranging from inscriptions to ascetic literature, from registers to women's letters.
