The Education and Miseducation of an Administrator in Late Roman Egypt

Alexander Jones (ISAW) and Roger Bagnall (ISAW)

This lecture will take place online. Registration is required, click through for the registration link. Zoom information will be provided via confirmation email to registered participants. This lecture about how administrators and business managers were trained in Late Antiquity grows out of our joint project to publish a fourth-century codex now divided between the Princeton University Library and a private collection. The codex as we have it dates to the 360s and comes from the Oxyrhynchite nome. It contains three types of material, in no particular order as far as we can tell: metrological texts, that is, treatises on measures and their relationship to one another; mathematical problems; and model contracts.
