This volume in honour of the late Eric Handley, one-time Regius Professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge and Director of the Institute of Classical Studies, offers a set of essays connected with Eric’s main scholarly interests and written by friends, colleagues, and former students.

Eric’s great love and facility for piecing the past together from whatever fragments of it survive, be they papyri or pots, in different ways inspired all the contributors, and their affection for him is encapsulated in a final Tribute to one of the pre-eminent classical scholars of his day.
