    Select Papyri

The two volumes of "Select Papyri (Non-literary Papyri)" in the Loeb series, edited by A.S.Hunt amd C.C.Edgar, contain the most comprehensive collection of Greek papyri from Egypt that has been published in English translation. They cover almost one thousand years from the first Ptolemaic kings until the Arab conquest, during which time Greek was the predominant language in Egypt. Their contents range from royal decrees to private letters, and provide a unique insight into everyday life in Greek and Roman times.

All the papyri from both the first volume("Private Affairs") and the second volume ("Public Documents") are available from the links below.
