P.Hercul. 1067 is one of the most studied Latin papyri in the Herculaneum collection. A remarkable amount of scholarly inquiry has been devoted to its palaeographical peculiarities (cf. infra). Moreover, in an article published in 19841 Felice Costabile attempted at an overall interpretation of the text and, without producing a proper edition of the papyrus, understood the text as an oratio in Senatu habita ante principem, mostly relying on the textual evidence provided by the Neapolitans ‘disegni’. A new comprehensive study of the papyrus argues against this interpretation and allows to construe the text as a literary work of historical nature, most probably composed by Seneca the Elder. This paper presents some of the results obtained from the thorough re-assessment of P.Hercul. 1067, and will focus on three main aspects: 1. The bibliological features of the roll as they were gathered from its virtual reconstruction. 2. The ‘mise en page’ of the text and the palaeographical features of the script. 3. An evaluation of the work contained in the papyrus in the light of significant new textual evidence.
