Abstract

This papyrus is housed in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and is mounted with a number of other fragments (both Greek and Demotic) between two sheets of glass. The papyrus consists of two fragments and contains twelve lines of text. Though the papyrus has a large lacuna that runs vertically down the center of the letter and is broken off at the bottom where the valediction begins, the lost text can be completely reconstructed so that the entire letter can be read.
