2 thoughts on “Classical Archaeology News | New fragments of poems by Sappho, questions of provenance

  1. Even non-archeologists know that it would not be difficult to fake a Sappho. It has been done before and will be done again. From a poetic standpoint, these new poems provide no new information about Sappho, but only repeat what we already know, like the names of her brothers. The topics don’t look at that much like Sappho either. With the huge market available for a real Sappho, one would think that “experts” would be especially careful.
