G, Ruffini, A Prosopography of Byzantine Aphrodito (ASP 50)

A Prosopography of Byzantine Aphrodito

American Studies in Papyrology 50)

by Giovanni Roberto Ruffini

This volume, which replaces Girgis's outdated prosopography from 1938, is an annotated record of every person attested in the Byzantine-era papyri from the middle Egyptian village of Aphrodito. Its papyri make Aphrodito the best attested village for this time period with implications for the study of rural life throughout Late Antiquity. For each entry, the author lists all the relevant texts and all known information about that person's social status, political position and family relations with a summary of activities for each attestation. The volume is indispensable for any scholar working with texts from Aphrodito and valuable for all concerned specifically with Egypt and more generally with rural life in Late Antiquity. 634p (American Society Papyrologists 2011)
