The volume contains 77 original papers on classical philology, Greek and Latin literature, papyrology, written especially – upon invitation – by authoritative scholars from Italian and foreign universities. The topics range from Homer to the Late Antique period and include epic literature, epigrams, philosophy, historiography, theatre and critical-textual theory. As well as a homage to the Florence Greekist Angelo Casanova on occasion of his adieu to university teaching, the work is also – both owing to the prestige of the authors and the variety of the topics dealt with – an extremely loyal picture of the 'state of the art' of current antiquities studies.
