This volume represents the collective enterprise of eight scholars connected with the University of Michigan. Of the 91 papyri which comprise its contents (numbered 131-221 in the Michigan series), 32 had previously appeared in various periodicals, their republication being considered desirable as a means of promoting facility of reference and citation and as affording an opportunity to record important revisions.
The papyri, all but a few of which are from the Roman period, are arranged according to subject under the following headings: Biblical Fragments, Classical Fragments, Mathematical Fragments, Astrological Fragments, Horoscopes, Magic, Libelli of the Decian Persecution, Official Documents, Petitions, Taxation, Contracts, Agricultural Account, and Private Correspondence.
