This is the first of the two volumes of the Corpus (the second, Part II.3: Gnomica, which will be published soon, includes gnomologies and anthologies) examining an aspect of ancient philosophy, aphoristic literature, that was marginal but fundamental in the education of the ancients. The published papyri reflect the curriculum of Greek education in Egypt from the third century BD to the sixth century AD, such as the Menandri Sententiae and the Sayings of the Seven Sages, as well as the chreiai.
