This colloquium volume celebrates a new Hellenistic epigram collection attributed to the 3rd-century BCE poet Posidippus, one of the most significant literary finds in recent memory. Included in this collection are an unusual variety of voices and perspectives: papyrological, art historical, archaeological, historical, literary and aesthetic. These texts are considered as individual poems and as collective artefact, an early poetry book. The volume should be of interest to readers of Greek and Latin epigram, students of the Hellenistic period, and all readers interested in the aesthetics of poetry collection and the evolution of the poetry book in antiquity.
