From our Classics editor Ellen Bauerle:


cover of "Papyri from Karanis: The Granary C123"

The Press is very pleased to note that the Chronicle of Higher Education recently listed among its books received our recently published volume Papyri from Karanis:  The Granary C123, edited by W. Graham Claytor, Assistant Professor of Classics at Hunter College, and Arthur Verhoogt, Professor of Papyrology and Greek and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor at the University of Michigan. This volume represents a restart of one of the Press’s oldest series, going back to the early days of the University of Michigan and its Press.  It also showcases the University’s stellar collection of Greco-Roman papyri,  the largest such in the western hemisphere, and the high quality of the University’s excavations at the Egyptian site of Karanis. Additional volumes showcasing this important and illuminating archaeological site are in development, as well as volumes investigating documents from other periods in Greco-Roman antiquity.
