About the Author

Roger S. Bagnall is Professor of Classics and History in the Department of Classics, Columbia University, USA.


'The Papyrological work done by Bagnall is one of the most valuable tools for the study of Eastern Mediterranean History in Late Antiquity. This group of most valuable articles, some of them already well known to and praised by scholars interested in Roman and Byzantine Egypt, is an excellent survey of research conducted in the field over the last three decades... deserves to be read widely by Classical scholars, Byzantinists, Roman historians and those working on related subjects.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
