Description
The main collection is a result of Mr. Flinders Petrie's excavations in 1889, and was brought from Deir El-Hammam, three miles N. of Illahun. To it are added a few fragments (Nos. XX, XXVI, XLIX, and LIII), acquired at Hawara. The subjects represented are (I) Biblical texts :—To the one example previously described, a second is now added. (II) Patristic texts:—I have placed among these some curious fragments which give, inter alia, the account of a dream, because I was at a loss more appropriately to class them. (HI) Liturgical texts : A small group, put together since I wrote my former description. (IV) Letters : This section embraces (as in the other collections) a large proportion of the whole. (V) Lists and accounts: Some very small scraps are included here. Of the so-called Legal documents, numerous in Vienna,' there are but three mutilated specimens (Nos. XXXV, XXXVI, XXXVII). These I have held it allowable to class with the letters.
