I have a lot of interest in the Derveni Papyrus, but I'm not a scholar on the subject. I can transliterate Greek, and have a very cursory vocabulary of ancient Greek religious terminology; however, the large swaths of the text and exegesis left untranslated made this book less informative for me. It's a specialist topic and this book was clearly intended to be read by specialists with a better knowledge of Greek than I have.
