The sources for Graeco-Roman Panopolis are numerous and diverse. They not only include numerous texts of all genres in various scripts and languages, but archaeological artefacts too. This volume brings together 17 contributions, dealing with epigraphy, both hieroglyphic and Greek, Greek papyri, Demotic funerary texts, Coptic literature and local monastic architecture. It seeks to conjure up a vivid picture of a world marked by profound religious and cultural change, without neglecting the heuristic problems which these various sources pose.
