Fields of interest

Greek Papyrology; social, cultural and economic history of Greek, Roman and Byzantine Egypt; edition of unpublished Greek papyri.


I am a Papyrologist who studies Greek papyri from Egypt from the Ptolemaic, Roman and Byzantine periods. These papyri give us detailed information on daily life in antiquity in all its different aspects. Although retired I still hope to continue deciphering and editeding unpublished papyri from the collection of the Leiden Papyrological Institute as well as from other collections. With my NWO Internationalisation in the Humanities Grant, the Leiden papyrologists have cooperated with colleagues from the Universities of Michigan and Salento in the project ‘Text in Context: Recontextualising the papyri from Roman Soknopaiou Nesos / Dime (Fayyum, Egypt)’. The final book publication with integral edition of archaeological objects and written texts is in preparation.
