Arian Murdoch has a piece on the Sappho papyrus too: 'Sapphogate - Part IV', Bread and Circuses 03 March 2014
The Sappho story has died has died down in recent weeks, but remains important. As Boin notes: "In eagerness to add lines of Sappho to the canon, they noted, the community had sidestepped potentially uncomfortable questions about their acquisition. Even if the Sappho papyrus has a perfectly legal history, indifference to the provenance of a cultural treasure has sent tacit and dangerous encouragement to traffickers of looted artifacts". Obbink's continued silence remains as concerning as it did at the end of January.
