Originally written by Lucan in latin, this Roman Epic poem tells the civil war that occurred between Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great. The title Pharsalia refers to the battle of Pharsalus in northern Greece in 48 CE in which Caesar defeated Pompey.
Composed of ten books, this poem ends with Caesar meeting Cleopatra in Egypt. This parchment contains a variety of handwritten comments in the margins of the text. This page contains some ancient restoration (stitching) due to a weakness of the skin at this location (as outlined by the hole above the stitching which shows a default in the skin that needed to be remove).
