the book is a valuable point of reference for classicists and papyrologists who want to be informed of the progress that has already taken place thanks to technology, and who, at the same time, search for new ways to approach the papyrological evidence. * Amphilochios Papathomas, Tyche *
a treasure trove for the specialist and a nice piece of reading for everybody with some classical background who is interested in the - everyday - world of the papyri. * Thomas J. Kraus, Expository Times *
