Greek and Bilingual Inscriptions of Ptolemaic Egypt - 01-02/04/2016, Oxford (England)

This colloquium will present and discuss material selected from the 600 monumental inscriptions which form the subject-matter for the research project ‘Corpus of Ptolemaic Inscriptions’ at the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents in the Faculty of Classics, University of Oxford, and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Its completion in the form of a book and an on-line collection will realise an ambition first conceived and initiated in 1955 by the late Peter Fraser. Topics covered will include the work of Peter Fraser on the epigraphy of Ptolemaic Egypt, the content of the Corpus, the presentation of the bilingual and the metrical inscriptions, palaeography and imaging technology, as well as social and cultural issues relevant to the content of the inscriptions.
