Something I was wondering about~Very Advanced Question

Hi Everyone,

I have one of those more advanced questions about Classical Greek. Has there been any kind of writing that has come to light from the time of Homer?
I know that papyrus scraps have been found in Egypt basically in what we would call trash piles today. Has anything been found there relating to this?

Greek/Latin ??

Hey everyone, I am learning Greek right now through the textbook Athenaze. However, I am very interested in learning Latin as well.
