Ptolemaic Papyri data in Turner Syntax Chapter 18

Post by Stephen Hughes » May 27th, 2013, 5:23 am

In Chapter 18 of his Syntax, Turner seems to make good use of Rossberg's 1909 analysis of the Ptolmaic era papyri.

To my mind that data is for texts that are contemporaneous with the LXX.

Does anyone know of a similar study that is covers Imperial era papyri?

What Turner is actually doing is ripping off Mayser's Grammatik Der Griechischen Papyri, but that's a whole other story...

If you're looking for Early Roman papyri, then you want Francis Gignac's grammar of the papyri. Unfortunately, its priced out of reach for most people and only covers phonology and morphology, not syntax.

Thanks for the title. At that price and not knowing whether the contents will be valuable as a long-term reference, I'll wait till I go back to Sydney (NSW not NS) in a few months where there are real academic libraries and have a look at it first.
