This paper offers a new overview of P.Lond. Lit. 112, long considered to be a possible fragment of the lost collection of ethnographical material known as Νόμιμα βαρβαρικά that originated with Aristotle. A new arrangement of the fragments, a re-edition of the text and an updated commentary suggests that the piece, rather than being Aristotelian, could be a fragment of the lost paradoxographic collection of ethnographic anecdotes compiled by Nymphodorus of Amphipolis.

Keywords: barbarian customs; Aristotle; paradoxography; Nymphodorus of Amphipolis
