I am a PhD student at “La Sapienza”, University of Rome. My research aims to study and analyze all papyri that quote passages from Demosthenes’ On the Crown oration. Actually, I have notice of thirty papyri found in Egypt, and their number is increasing. These specimina cover a wide period of time, from I century BC, to VI century AD. The enquiry of these findings could be useful in order to reconstruct the demosthenic text, its relations with the medieval tradition and could enlighten the origin of quoted public documents (commonly considered forgeries) and the circulation of this famous oration in Antiquity.
