Since the end of 2022, the project entitled “Modes of Reading and the Transmission of Texts in Antiqui-ty” , led by Prof. Dr Richard Hunter, has been investigating the “indirect transmission”, i.e. later quotations from classical literature, as a valuable source for the history of reading practices in antiquity and the Byzantine world, as well as the transmission of written culture in antiquity and the history of the book.
