You could say '... was first introduced to their collection of papyri.'
It's one 'i', because it's second declension plural in Latin. It would have to be 'papyrius' to have two.
Yes if papyrus is used as a noun and is plural then papyrii (I can't remember if it's one or two 'i's).I study ancient papyrii I study ancient papyrus scrolls.
Ah, I see so I could say[This is] where I was first introduced to their collection of papyrus scrolls.Can you give me an example of where papyri would be appropriate?Does "Here are the papyri" work? Thank you very much!
So you would say a collection of fragile scrolls not fragiles scrolls iyswim
Papyrus. Scrolls is the plural. Papyrus in this case describes the individual scrolls.
Thought you pedants would know I am trying to say:[This is] where I was first introduced to their collection of Papyrus scrolls,Is Papyri more appropriate? A quick google has left me even more confused.Many thanks
