The burnt scroll from Derveni (Greece) is one of last century’s most interesting finds. Dating back to the 4th century b.C., it proves to be a precious witness to the history of orphism, religion and Greek philosophical thought. This is the first, complete and official edition of the Derveni scroll, with papyrology section, translation, comment and index of words. The complete reproductions of the scroll, hereby published for the first time, are of extreme importance.
