Classics Papyri

The fragments are part of the Classics Department Papyri Collection, which is currently on deposit (with access to the original fragments by special request only) in Special Collections. In the 1980s, the department purchased about 75 Egyptian papyri for use as a teaching and research collection. The provenance of the papyri is uncertain, but like many others they could have been found in ancient garbage dumps or mummy wrappings (cartonnage). Hellenistic in origin, nearly all date from 250-150 BCE. Their texts, written in ancient Greek and Demotic, are documentary in nature: official letters, receipts, accounts, contracts, petitions (including one from jail), land measurement, public sale at auction, and lists of names.
