Descriptions of Documents

1

Documentary papyri are divided into four broad types, and several subtypes. In some cases the subtypes may be further divided into variations for a more fine-grained distinction. Each type, subtype and variation will be described here in detail. However, as this work is still in progress, only a selection of descriptions is currently available.

2

The description is usually divided into three sections: the structure of the text content, the format of the papyrus, and the layout of the text on the page.

How To Read

3

To reference papyri, we use the Trismegistos identifiers (TM numbers), which link either:

  • to a page in the grammateus website;
  • to the corresponding papyri.info page.
