Roger S. Bagnall (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009), 601–602, who disputes the date advanced by Gardner et al. 72 What this means for the purposes of this study is that for the most part letters will not be assigned a specific date, unless they include one, but will be dated either to a century or to a general window of about forty to fifty years. To help remedy the inherent problems of paleographic dating all letters will be dated as they appear in the HGV in order to ensure as much accuracy as possible since this database is updated regularly.
