Anonymous papyrus – Cairo 113

Anonymous
Provenance: probably from Bab el Gasus, see Niwinski page 56

A fascinating and finely detailed papyrus that could only have belonged to someone from the highest circles. So far, I don’t think anyone has made an attempt to study and describe this extraordinary work. Should you feel like it, I have a full image available of high quality on which all the texts are clearly legible. So as a study assignment or hobby, this is a nice challenge

Because it is unusual for a papyrus of this length to also have this height of 45 cm, I made the projection higher than the other papyri on the site so that the very fine and precisely drawn details are clearly visible
