The Carbonized Papyri from Bubastos: Current Work on the Unpublished Material


Several papyrus collections hold parts of an archive of carbonized papyri that derive from the administration of the Bubastite nome in the Nile Delta. So far, six long scrolls have been published in the three volumes of the P.Bub. series (1990, 1998, 2016). However, a large part of the material remains unpublished. I report here on my work on this material, with a focus on one large scroll that I am hoping to publish soon.
