F. Morelli, L'archivio di Senouthios anystes e testi connessi (CPR XXX)

L'archivio di Senouthios anystes e testi connessi
Lettere e documenti per la costruzione di una capitale
[The Construction of a Capital]
Ed. by Morelli, Federico
2010 | Hardcover | Euro [D] 149.95 / for USA, Canada, Mexico US$ 210.00. *
ISBN 978-3-11-022887-8
Series: Corpus Papyrorum Raineri (CPR) 30

The volume contains the edition of 32 Greek papyrus texts, together with a commentary and translation, from the recently identified Senouthios archive. It consists of correspondence between high-ranking officials from Hermopolites in the first years after the Arabic conquest of Egypt. The letters deal with the requisitions for the erection of the new Egyptian capital of al-Fustât (“Old Cairo”), and throw light on aspects which are otherwise scarcely documented, such as the relationship between Christians and Muslims, or the reaction of the population to the demands of the new rulers. A second volume is in preparation.

F. A. J. Hoogendijk, B. P. Muhs (ed.), Sixty-Five Papyrological Texts: Presented to Klaas A. Worp on the Occasion of his 65th Birthday. Papyrologica Lugduno-Batava 33.   Leiden/Boston:  Brill, 2008.  Pp. xl, 416.  ISBN 9789004166882.  $216.00.   

Reviewed by Daniela Colomo, University of Oxford (daniela.colomo@classics.ox.ac.uk)
Table of Contents
This volume contains sixty-five texts, almost all representing the editio princeps of hitherto unpublished papyri, offered to the leading papyrologist Klaas Antony Worp to celebrate his 65th birthday.1 As the Preface points out (p. v), the range of the contributions reflects not only the extremely wide spectrum of the interests of the honorandus, but also his willingness to collaborate with colleagues from all over the world in the genuine spirit of the amicitia papyrologorum. The variety of the texts included in the book is impressive, and they contribute relevant new information to literary, religious, and material culture as well as political, administrative, social and economic aspects of the Graeco-Roman and Byzantine world. We find Greek literary papyri (contributions nos. 1-4), Greek subliterary papyri (no. 9), a Coptic subliterary text (no. 5), a magic papyrus (no. 10), a large number of documents not only written in Greek (nos. 13-26, 28-61), but also in Latin (no. 11), Demotic (no. 12), Coptic (nos. 62-64), Arabic (no. 65), and even a bilingual text in Greek and Latin (no. 27). The chronological range stretches from the third century BC to the eleventh century AD, although the majority of the texts come from the first centuries of the common era and from late antiquity. Accordingly, a variety of writing material is also represented, from papyrus to parchment, from wooden tablets to ostraka.

Table of Contents

Dieser Band enthält 53 literarische und dokumentarische Texte, die mit Ausnahme von zwei zugehörigen Fragmenten aus den Sammlungen von Princeton University, bzw. dem Istituto Papirologico 'G. Vitelli' in Florenz alle in der Papyrus-Sammlung der New York University aufbewahrt werden. Für diese Publikation sind die ursprünglich in vier separaten Lieferungen der wohlbekannten Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigrafi k (Bonn) erschienenen Texte neu durchgesehen und, falls notwendig, aktualisiert. Unter den dokumentarischen Texten sind alle Perioden aus der Geschichte des griechisch-römischen Ägyptens zwischen 330 BCE und etwa 800 CE (d.h. die ptolemäische, die römische, die byzantinische und die früh-arabische Periode) vertreten. Ein ebenfalls buntes Spektrum weisen die unterschiedlichen Herkunftsorte dieser Texte auf: die meisten Texte stammen aus dem Arsinoites, dem Oxyrhynchites oder dem Hermopolites, aber auch eine eher unübliche Provinz wie der Aphroditopolites ist vertreten, während von vielen Texten die genaue Herkunft einfach unbekannt ist. Schließlich sei darauf hingewiesen, dass die dokumentarischen Texte inhaltlich sehr verschieden sind: so sind Gattungen wie amtliche Korrespondenz, Privatbriefe, Steuer-Quittungen, Verträge, Testamente usw. alle vertreten. Während ein Überblick der veröffentlichten New Yorker University-Papyri den Texten vorangeht, schließen die üblichen Wortindizes den Band ab, an dessen Ende Bilder der einzelnen Objekte mitgegeben werden.
