Opificio 20th June 2016

An unpublished papyrus of striking relevance for the history of the Mediterranean culture has been recently discovered within the frame of project PLATINUM: a bilingual letter on papyrus, in both Latin and Arabic, but entirely written in Latin script.

A Medievalist and an Arabist will analyze the text and discuss the possible contexts in which this precious source, still unknown to the scientific community, can be put.
