Oxyrhynchus Papyri Project (POxy: Oxyrhynchus Online)

URL: http://www.papyrology.ox.ac.uk/


The Oxyrhynchus Papyri Project is putting online the corpus of papyri excavated from Oxyrhynchus (Al-Bashnasa in Egypt) by Bernard Grenfell and Arthur Hunt from 1897. The Project has an online table of contents for volumes 1-70 of the Oxyrhynchus Papyri. The table of contents can be navigated by volume number or papyrus number. Digital images of the papyri are currently available from volume 47 onwards. Images are available as 150 dpi resolution for all online papyri with an increasing number also available with a resolution of 300 dpi. Each papyrus record includes location information, editorial details, and notes. The Project's Web site also includes an introduction to Oxyrhynchus and the excavations; details of how the papyri were digitized; and the online version of the exhibition, 'Oxyrhynchus: A City and its Texts' (Ashmolean, 1998).
