The objective of the research undertaken was the reconstruction, the reading, the translation and the critical commentary of Herculaneum papyrus (inedit) 1834, which has been identified as the remainder of On Love by Philodemus of Gadara, first century B. C. Epicurean philosopher and student of Zeno of Sidon. The initial phase of my work was founded on the analysis of archived documents, on the history of unrolling carbonized papyrus and on researching documentation regarding papyri since the nineteenth century. The second part of my work consisted in conducting a bibliographic analysis of the original in order to be able to reconstruct the roll. I then prepared a philological and philosophical interpretation (or commentary) of the restored text which emphasises that this writing cannot be regarded as an Epicurean production any longer. Lastly, the final part of my work proposes a new track of attribution whereby P. Herc 1384 would be a book of stoical ethics.
