Title: The Ptolemies and the Myth of Andromeda and Perseus
Subtitle: Edition of P.Vinob. G 42484
Author(s): BRUCE, William

Volume: 58 Date: 2021
Edition of P.Vindob. G 42484, a small fragment of a papyrus codex that contains fragments of a metrical text embedded in a prose commentary. The few words that remain suggest that the subject of the poem is an episode from the myth of Andromeda and Perseus. The prose text on the other side of the codex leaf is written in the same hand and may therefore be presumed to be related; it contains references to the Ptolemies and citizens.
