A fragment of a Greek novel? PMil I 2. 17 revisited


P.Mil. I 2. 17 has been interpreted as a mythical or historical text and even considered as a fragment of Timaeus of Tauromenion. It was labeled by López Martinez, Fragmentos papiráceos de novela griega, 1998 – number 39 of her edition – as valde incertum –. The text is interesting both from a linguistic point of view and for raising a question concerning the literary genre to whom it pertains. The purpose of this paper is to review the text and to deep in the study of its literary genre.
