About this item

The Derveni Papyrus, discovered in Greece in 1962 and written in the fourth century BC, is one of the oldest Greek papyri ever found. It contains the work of an unknown author, who allegorizes an Orphic myth into a physical account of the creation of the universe. This text combines ritual, myth, and early Greek philosophy into a fascinating amalgam. The Derveni Papyrus is now available in German translation, and with an explanatory commentary.
