How this site works

Click on stuff in the sidebar (you just did it) to bring up bijou resources-in-a-nutshell here, in this ‘footer’ frame. Click bottom left on the Oxyrhynchus fishie to get back to the main menu at any time.

Display options

The more dots you have, the better. This site is optimised for 800x600 resolution or higher. It’s pretty much okay on 640x480, too: all you lose is a couple of non-essentials (Credits, Hot Links) from the bottom of the sidebar.

What does this word mean?

Non-specialists may find the language of papyrology less than clear. There’s a glossary of jargon (as yet, very patchy) which should cover most of it in time. Please email us if the word you’re puzzling over isn’t included.
