The first part of the paper identifies a fragment of papyrus in Latin from Antinoopolis (PSI XIII 1346) as part of Justinian’s Novel 62, and discusses the significance of this for the dissemination of Justinian’s legislation and in particular the fate of Latin in the sixth-century empire. The second part gives a summary account of the history of The Park, Nottingham (the current residence of the honorand), the former royal hunting ground next to the Castle, which was developed by the Dukes of Newcastle-under-Lyne as an important residential suburb for the affluent middle classes in the nineteenth century. It highlights, in particular, how the timing and pattern of development were contingent on the accident of the 4th Duke’s political and economic circumstances.
