New edition and commentary of P. Lond Lit. 190, an early 3rd century B.C. tattered bookroll from a mummy cartonnage found in Medinet Gurob by W.M. Flinders Petrie during the 1890 season of his excavations in the Fayyum. On the few surviving fragments it is possible to read mentions to some of Herakles’ adventures, and especially an account of the fight between him and Hippocoon, who exiled from Sparta his brother Tyndareos and took the power on the city for a short time. This text was probably part of a longer mythographic work written around the 4th century B.C., as pointed out by its diction.
