Abstract :
Edition of P.CtYBR inv. 4673, a set of unpublished fragments from the Yale papyrus collection. The text on the recto is a paraliterary work with quotations from the Iliad on the topic of Achilles’ armour, while on the verso are remains of a glossary to Iliad 5. Since the hands look to be roughly contemporary, both sides of the roll were in use in the same period, suggesting it was used in some kind of educational context.
