About the research
"Aproved"* reads a Royal Decree that was possibly signed by Cleopatra (or at least by one of her ministers). But how did such a spelling error get into such an important document? Couldn't Cleopatra and her ministers spell? That's what classicist Geert De Mol (Ghent University) is looking into in his PhD.
* This document was of course not drafted in English, but the Greek spelling error 'ghinestoo' can be compared with writing 'aproved' with one 'p'.
