In recent articles and contributions, Kevin W. Wilkinson has identified some clues, in the text of several epigrams by Palladas of Alexandria, which, in his view, enable us to date this epigrammatic poet back to the age of Constantine. By analysing a number of passages, Wilkinson backdates Palladas by about sixty years, possibly as far back as a century. He tries to prove this new chronological reconstruction with the help of a new papyrus find, which he himself has published and which he would like to attribute to Palladas. There is no evidence that the Yale Papyrus (P. Ct. ybr Inv. 4000) is really a codex with epigrams by Palladas. As a result, its dating is still uncertain and the traditional date ascribed to Palladas (between the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 5th century ad) is still the most logical, and is confirmed by a long series of epigrams attributed to the Alexandrian poet in the Greek Anthology.

For example Franco 2009212-213 nr. 40 notes on this passage: “è da notare che nonostante la religione pagana sia esplicitamente esecrata il documento non contiene alcun divieto di celebrarne i culti ma soltanto l’auspicio espresso in una preghiera a Dio che i cittadini romani decidano spontaneamente di fare la scelta migliore e di abbracciare la fede cristiana”.
