Re: The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

The addressing ones are really interesting - thanx. Not a generally usable addressing system today. The postman must have known the recipients or people who did - I wonder when envelopes first came in. I can't remember which book I read it in, but usually the letter was given to an acquaintance who...

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

But I'm puzzling over how ὥστε is functioning here. I am possibly missing it's common 'so that' use but here it just seems to be redundant to the dative sense conveyed by Διονυσἰῳ. LSJ notes a usage like this, if I'm write, but it doesn't seem a common use, so I could be off here. You're right, LSJ...

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

Hi Daniel, You could try this book by Stanley Stowers, Letter Writing in Greco-Roman Antiquity ( Google Books link ). It looks at all sorts of letters in general, but should have some discussion concerning the pre and post letter greetings. There's also this rather excellent Open Access (!) book on ...

Re: Transcription and Translation of Old Greek Isaiah in Codex Marchalianus

Oh no major preference; I'm just more used to the transcriptions of papyri etc., as seen in Oxyrhynchus volumes, and also as seen of NT MSS at the INTF. I do however prefer the capitalising, and adding spaces, accents, and punctuation.

Thanks for the explanation - was just curious!

Re: Transcription and Translation of Old Greek Isaiah in Codex Marchalianus

Hello Ken - thanks for notifying concerning this. Am already looking through it! Few quick questions: on Academia it's said this is the "Greek Text and Translation" of Marchalianus, but here you've referred to it as a "Transcription". Checking the images you handily link to, I ca...

Re: Google Custom Search for B-Greek

Just tested exactly what you've put above, Jonathan: λογος brought back only 3 results; λόγος returned 24,700 results.

Certainly works then. :)

Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

The voyage by Antaeopolite is very vexing, and each day I am depressed because of it, and am very worried by the matter. If it is necessary to give a fee to the brother of the mother of the son* of Axilla, you do well by giving it after you have received* it from Sarapion out of my own expense. Rem...
