Papyrus



¿Quid hoc est?


Magister trahit plantam ex Igueste de San Andres.


Sed planta quoque in Aegypto est.

In tempo antiquo, scribebant in papyro.



Quid significat in lingua hispanica?


Until the middle of the 19th century, only some isolated documents written on papyrus were known. They did not contain literary works. The first discovery of papyri rolls in modern days was made at Herculaneum in 1752. Before that date, the only papyri known were a few surviving from medieval times.
