The Classical Quarterly

Research Article

‘Evil Communications.’

A. D. Knox and P. H. Ling

Others must have shared my surprise at reading the two articles on this subject in the Classical Quarterly (XIX., pp. 22 sqq., 92 sq.), one by Mr. P. H. Ling, writing ‘in the light of our present knowledge,’ and one by Professor H. J. Rose. Among the Hibeh Papyri (I. 7) is a fragment of an anthology which hereabouts contains quotations from Tragedy and Epicharmus. It gives four verses, the last of which was rightly identified by the editors Grenfell and Hunt. Of the lemma only a spot of ink on a loose fibre remains.
