This paper examines the papyrus gnomology published in 1950 by J. Barns (P.EES). The place of this document in ancient gnomology is discussed in the light of the results of the latest researches on gnomic literature from the Hellenistic period to Late Antiquity. The paper also anticipates some results of a new edition of the text that will appear in the Corpus dei papiri filosofici Greci e Latini, focusing in particular on two lacunous passages. In the light of a new examination of the papyrus by Maria Serena Funghi, and of comparison with other material, previous interpretations are discussed and some new ways of text restoration are proposed.
