The letters paint a picture of an ordinary
oung man, Stephan said, who writes to ask
r warm socks and boots and to ask his
luctant father for permission to marry his
rlfriend.
The Karanis papyri are unusual because

"What Karanis offers is a chance to 1
reconstruct daily life in this perfectly ordi-
nary little town, which is impossible almost;
anywhere else in the world," she said. Thel
artifacts include a toy sword, pots and pans,
fragments of clothing and other bric-a-brac,
rendered precious by their 2,000-year histo-1
ry. These and other artifacts from the town1
of Karanis are currently on display in an
exhibit at the Kelsey Museum, "Archaeolo-
gies of Childhood: The First Years of Life in
Roman Egypt."
Of Stephan, who works at the Kelsey
Museum, Alcock said, "Rob's a real live

to make a mark on the field, I suspect."
In March, Stephan won the Phillips Clas-
sical Prize in Greek translation, for whiok
he translated part of the New Testament
from Greek similar to that in which the new
papyri are written. Although he has never
been to Egypt, he has taken part in archaeo-
logical excavations in southwest New Mexi-
co and Tennessee.
Stephan plans to continue his independent
study and to follow up with graduate work
after senior year. "The Indiana Jones movies
made me want to be an archaeologist," he
said. "I want to be Indiana Jones when-'
grow up."
