This chapter studies the P.Berol.inv.21188, a papyrus from Hermoupolis that dates from the second century C.E. It is composed of ten small fragments and one larger one. The discussion shows that the large fragment (frag.1) preserves a part of a commentary on a phrase from Dem.5.25, and that the second fragment to “renting” the ass continues the proverb's discussion. The chapter also includes a parallel treatment of the proverb in Harpocration.

Keywords:   P.Berol.inv.21188, Hermoupolis, Dem.5.25, proverb, parallel treatment, Harpocration
