The volume consists of a comprehensive catalogue of hexametric adespota texts transmitted on papyri. Each entry contains: publication name; indication of content; correspondences with the online catalogues Mertens-Pack3 and Leuven Database of Ancient Books; date, provenance and current location; previous editions available; previously suggested attributions; updated bibliography. The book also incorporates re-editions with translation and commentary of a selection of anonymous hexameter papyri, including new readings and textual conjectures significantly advancing our understanding of a large variety of texts ranging from epic to astronomical poems. Adespota Papyracea Hexametra Graeca updates and integrates previous collections of unattributed hexameter texts such as the hexametric sylloge in Lloyd-Jones and Parsons' Supplementum Hellenisticum (nos. 901-956) and the recent catalogue in Miguelez-Cavero's Poems in Context (nos.1.-33).
