"This important collection makes available to students and scholars a vast trove of letters attributed to women that is unparalleled in the ancient world. These documents were written on papyrus and ostraca and appear here in English translation . . . For senior scholars to publish a collection like this one is an act of altruism for which all who study women must be grateful."
--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"This valuable collection makes available in English translation all letters written by women in Egypt from the reign of Alexander to the end of the Greco-Coptic period in the late eighth century. In bringing these artifacts to a broader audience in such a clear and conscientious manner, the editors of this work have done a great service."
--Bret Mulligan, The Journal of Hellenic Studies
