Fasce di lana in un papiro latino (P.Masada 723 riedito)

Andrea Bernini EMAIL logo


P.Masada 723 is an important source on medical practice within the Roman army. A revision of the text shows the use of woollen bandages for the wounded, and gives us a better understanding of the section referring to the sick. A palaeographical reconsideration of the document proves it to be an example of duplex manus, the phenomenon by which different graphical levels correspond to different textual sections.
