Kathryn Gutzwiller and Alex Sens, Organizers

This fall will see the publication of about one hundred previously unknown epigrams, apparently all by Posidippus (P.Mil.Vogl. 309 by G. Bastianini, C. Gallazzi, and C. Austin) and all securely dated to the third century B.C. It provides the most significant papyrological evidence for ancient epigram collections ever to emerge, and will likely transform our understanding of the transmission of early epigrams and of the formation of Hellenistic poetry books. The addition of some 600 new verses, unfiltered by the selective lens of Meleager, has the potential to improve, if not fundamentally alter, our understanding of epigram as a genre.

Four presenters who are already engaged in research on epigram will give brief presentations on the new collection from the perspectives of their individual work. We anticipate a half-hour of presentations and an hour of discussion with the audience.
