Philodemus on Death

I've just received my copy of W. Benjamin Henry's edition and translation of Philodemus On Death. It looks extremely useful. I'm always impressed by the amount of work that goes in to producing an edition of this sort and by anyone who is able to make good sense of the scrappy papyrus remains. I hope it encourages more good work, philosophical work in particular, on this text.

You can order the book via Amazon (click on the image) or directly - and more cheaply - from the Society of Biblical Literature (link here).
