The planned research activity is framed in the project "La magia aggressiva nel mondo antico: lessico e formulario dei testi in greco ", which investigates the linguistic features of the magical curses in Greek. The research activity will concern ancient Greek texts transmitted on epigraphic material and papyri of various chronologies, with the goal to identify and extrapolate data useful for a linguistic analysis. This analysis should be aimed at understanding the characteristic features of magical texts, with particular reference to semantic evolution and syntactic structure published in the Albo Ufficiale, n. 11490)
