Abstract

In the mid-nineteenth century, literary papyri begin to come to light: among them are some Hyperidean rolls, which give back a part of the production of the Attic orator, at that time known exclusively thorough indirect tradition. In 1857n, Rev. Henry Stobart sold to the British Museum an Hyperidean roll, in fragments, bearing the Epitaphs that the Attic orator pronounced for Leosthenes and his comrades fallen in the Lamian war (P.Lit.Lond. 133). This paper examines new evidence about the history of the acquisition of the roll containing the Epitaphius.
