I am proud to announce that my student, now colleague, Alba de Frutos García, who defended her dissertation “The funerary workers in Ptolemaic Egypt”, just received the Prize to doctoral dissertations from the Fundación Pastor de Estudios Clásicos 2017/2018.

I toast for Alba, and wish her a wonderful papyrological future!
November 7-14th Alberto Nodar joined me in Chicago to work on the proofs of the proceedings of the 28th papyrological congress. We have six amazing co-editors : María Jesús Albarrán, Raquel Martín, Irene Pajón, José Domíngo Rodríguez, Marco Antonio Santamaría and Amalia Zomeño. The volume will contain 81 papers ranging from Restoration to Literary ostraca, including some interesting editions.
We want the volume to be ready for the 29th Papyrological congress, which will take place in Lecce in the summer of 2019. It will be available open access on the digital repository of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and also on paper on demand.
