Reading the Papyri: Zenon Introduction About Zenon Features of the Archive Reading the Text Putting it All Together

::Putting it All Together::

Now that you have closely read each of the letters in each line, we can try to put the papyrus together, and to understand what it means. Click on the links below to see and translate the Greek, and to read about how this papyrus fits into the Zenon archive.

Studying papyri like this example from the Zenon archive is an exciting way to explore the ancient world, and it is the one of the few opportunities we have to connect with the distant past directly through the words of ancient authors. Visit our website, Reading the Papyri, to see more examples of writing from the ancient world.
