Ptocheia or Odysseus in Disguise at Troy (P.Koln VI 245)

Volume 31
Maryline Parca

Description

The editio princeps of P. Köln VI 245, a poetic fragment that Maryline Parca dates to the third century CE, ascribes the fragment to the tragic genre and identifies it as an autograph. The text concerns a mission to Troy to contact Helen (theft of the Palladium?) and seemingly involves Odysseus, Athena, and possibly the Trojan Antenor.  Parca examines text against evidence for Greek culture in Upper Egypt in the late Roman period.
