Arthur Surridge Hunt

Arthur Surridge Hunt, FBA (1 March 1871 – 18 June 1934) was an English papyrologist.


Hunt was born in Romford, Essex, England. Over the course of many years, Hunt, along with Bernard Grenfell, recovered many papyri from excavation sites in Egypt, including the Oxyrhynchus Papyri.

He worked with Campbell Cowan Edgar on a translation of the Zenon Papyri from the original Greek and Demotic.
