Welcome Archive 2001



The Petronian Society Newsletter after 30 years (1970-2000) of publishing on paper has become an online publication beginning with vol. 31, April 2001.

PSN has now become part of Ancient Narrative, where it has its own, clearly recognizable homepage. Although parts of AN will be available to subscribers only from May 1, 2001 onwards, the PSN homepage within AN will remain open and free for all.

PSN will continue to publish the same sorts of things which it produced in the past: bibliography, Nachleben, reports about congressi, and the lighter side of the novel. All members of the PSN will also receive a letter which will inform them about these changes.

We all look forward with eagerness to the future.
