P.J. Parsons, Maeheler, H., Maltomini, F., The Vienna Epigrams Papyrus (G 40611) CPR XXXIII

Aims and Scope

This papyrus (3rd century BC) contains c. 200 incipits (first lines) of Greek epigrams with a numeral at the end of each line that gives the number of lines of the complete epigram; most of them had 4 lines. Of these, only one has been ascribed to a known poet (Asklepiades), but it is by no means clear that all of them were his. Their publication, greatly aided by multispectral photography, is a very welcome addition to Hellenistic poetry.
