The article presents report on the Seventeenth International Congress of Papyrology at Naples, Italy. Five hundred delegates discoursed on themes derived from the ancient writings that form their life study.

Papyrology properly designates the study of papyri written in Greek or Latin, papyri in Egyptian script being considered a branch of Egyptology.
