P.Oxy. 2248 was published by Lobel (1952) as part of a κoμμός of Aeschylus' Semele on the basis of a palaeographical standpoint (cf. P.Oxy. 2164). According to modern scholars, the Aeschylean authorship of the papyrus could likely be confirmed thanks to some textual expressions (cf. ll. 2, 5, 12). In fact, the context seems to suggest a dialogue between the Chorus and another character about an adverse fate. The text, however, can be generally reconstructed, though not in detail, and from the reconstruction a more or less clear picture of its contents may be presented. There are still uncertain readings and some unresolved issues in the text, but it is my hope that this paper could overcome some of these difficulties.
