INTRODUCTION

The present Catalogue of the Greek papyii and vellum MSS. in
the Cairo Museum includes all those received uj) to the end of
1901. Prior to the year 1897, with the exception of the Gospel
of Peter and the other important discoveries at Akhmim published
in 1892 by the Mission ArcMoloyique Fran<;aise, the Museum's
collection was limited to a few well-preserved documents and
a large quantity of fragments, which were for the most part gummed
down on sheets of cardboard, in some cases probably concealing
writing on the back. These consisted of (1) early Ptolemaic papyri
from the cartonnage of mummies found in the Fayoum, and closely
lelated to the Petrie Papyri edited by Dr. Mahafty; (2) some later
Ptolemaic fragments from the cartonnage of mummies found at
Akhmim ; (3) a few late Ptolemaic documents from Gebelen,
belonging to the same find as those published in our Greek Papyri,
Series I and II ; (4) many fragments of the Roman and late
Byzantine periods, of uncertain provenance ; (5) some complete
documents and numerous fragments of the fourth century, mainly
from Ashmunen, forming part of a find of which the major portion
is preserved in the Rainer collection at Vienna. Of these
miscellaneous papyri the chief Ptolemaic specimens have been
edited by ourselves, others of various periods by Dr. E. J. Goodspeed
and a few by other scholars. The importance of the unpublished
j)apyri is not great ; but we give in the present volume the texts of
three interesting theological pieces, (l)a fragment of an uncanonical
gospel (10735;, (2) a fragment concerning the correspondence be-
tween Christ and Abgarus (10736), and (3) a Christian prayer
(10696;.



viii INTRODUCTION

Since 1897 the Museum has received a large selection of well-
preserved documents, chiefly of the Roman and Byzantine periods,
from our earlier excavations at Behnesa and in the Fayoum in 1896-
1899, Most of these have been published or described by us in
the Oxyrhynchiis Papyri, Parts I-III, or in Faywn Towns and their
Pajjyri. During the next few years extensive additions will be
made to the collection through the division of the papyri which
were found in our later excavations in the Fayoum and elsewhere,
and in the excavations of M. Jouguet, but which have all been
provisionally sent to Europe for publication.

In the following catalogue the remark ' Fibres vertical ' means
that the writing is on the recto of the papyrus, but at right angles to
the fibres. Where no such remark is made, the writing is, as usually
happens, along the fibres. Except where the contrary is stated, the
writing is on the recto. The measurements throughout refer to
metres. The numbers of the papyri in the catalogue are uniformly
printed in heavy type. In the case of Greek words square brackets
[ ] indicate a lacuna, round brackets ( ) the expansion of an
abbreviation, and letters with dots under them are to be considered
uncertain.
