New book from the Presses Universitaires de Liège:

papleo6

Gabriel Nocchi Macedo and Maria Chiara Scappaticcio (eds.). Signes dans les textes, textes sur les signes: Érudition, lecture et écriture dans le monde gréco-romain.
Papyrologica Leodiensia 6; Liège: PUL, 2017.

The various paratextual signs found here and there in early-Christian papyri and manuscripts have drawn quite some attention during the last decade for the possible clues they could offer not only about the use of these manuscripts but possibly also about liturgical practices and the formation of the canon.

This book offers sixteen contributions on the Greek and Roman background on signs found in manuscripts and inscriptions, and should therefore inform all future developments of such debates. The papers are written in Italian, English, Spanish and French, so it should be good fun. I’ve pasted the contents below, for convenience. Daniela Colomo’s article, on quantity marks in Greek prose texts on papyrus, is available online here.
