The inaugural summer institute was hosted in summer of 2003 by Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, with 13 participants from the United States and abroad. The seminar focused on Greek and Latin papyri, with emphasis on those from the Roman garrison housed at Dura-Europos, in keeping with Yale's commemoration in 2003/2004 of the work of Michael Rostovtzeff. Principal instructors were Hélène Cuvigny (CNRS, Paris) and Ann Ellis Hanson (Yale University); lecturers included Roger Bagnall, Adam Bülow-Jacobsen, Raffaella Cribiore, Ruth Duttenhöfer, Ranon Katzoff, Susan Matheson, John Matthews, William Metcalf, Timothy Renner, and Peter van Minnen.
