Book-Ends, End-Titles, and Coronides in Papyri with Hexametric Poetry
This book presents a systematic and chronological investigation into the nature and development of end-titles in papyrus rolls and codices of hexameter poetry from the third century BCE to the sixth century CE. The bulk of the evidence for presentation of hexametric verse derives from Homeric papyri (51 papyrus copies), although Hesiod's Theogony, Works & Days, and Shield (two), and Oppian's Halieutica likewise supply data. For comparative purposes Francesca Schironi also provides a sampling of end-titles in non-epic genres. The discussion of individual papyri and summation of the results are rich and informative. To Mega Biblion includes bibliographical references, charts with comparative statistics, and pertinent indices.
