News on the Sappho Papyrus

VARIANT READINGS: More on Dirk Obbink and the Provenance of the Sappho Papyrus. Brent Nongbri summarizes and comments on an article by C. Michael Sampson in the current issue of the Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists. I don't have access to the article, so I can't comment on it or Brent's summary.

Background on the missing papyri scandal, the provenance of the Sappho papyrus, etc. is here and follow the links.
