LAREGRE. - Latin Relics in a Greek East


LAREGRE want to understand both how the central government used the Latin language in the Egyptian provinces to enhance its power and authority and to study how people in Egypt reacted to the cultural and political decline of Rome in the period from IV to VII AD. During the project all the documentary papyri (about 400) which contain passages in Latin – starting from simple characters and words to phrases or full text – will be investigated within the larger frame of Late Antique Egypt, the Late and the Eastern Roman Empire.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 895634. Views and opinions expressed are those of the author only, and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union. Neither the European Union nor the granting authority can be held responsible for them.
