Video Clip Featuring Trajanos Gagos and the Michigan Papyrus Collection

One of our readers, "Donna" left a comment on our announcement of the tragic death of "Traianos Gagos (1960-2010)" which I thought deserves a main post:

We are deeply saddened to hear this news.
Here is a short video we produced about the U of M Papyrus Collection featuring Traianos. He could not have been more helpful - a wonderful spirit!

Our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. Many generations of scholars and papyrologists worldwide will benefit from his progressive work through the internet.

Link to the Video Clip:

At one point in the clip, Gagos characteristicially says: "Well, I am a big believer in sharing information, dissemination, 95% of the collection is free on the internet."


  1. That's 95%.

  2. Seems like an awfully early date for p46: second century, 200 years older than any other ms of Paul. If 01 and 03 are c. 350, that would date p46 at least half a century older than the usual c. 200.
