T. Derda, P.Naqlun II

JJP Supplement volume 9
Tomasz Derda, Deir el-Naqlun: The Greek Papyri, volume ii, Warsaw 2008 (hard cover, maps, plates and monochromatic photographs), ISBN 978-83-918250-8-2, 45 euro

The volume contains some twenty Greek texts on papyrus and ostraca, both theological and documentary, found during the excavation carried out by the Polish Archaeological Mission (directed by prof. Wlodzimierz Godlewski) at Deir el-Naqlun, a monastic complex at the Fayum, Egypt. Among them, there are: seven leaves from a finely decorated codex of Psalms (P. Naqlun inv. 34/88); two ostraka (O. Naqlun inv. 64/86 and 53/88) containing contiguous fragments of the Gospel according to Mathew; a small archive (from hermitage no. 89 of the Naqlun laura) made up of three notarial documents dated to ad 585–593; a dozen of fragmentarily preserved letters. Volume one of P. Naqlun was published by the same author in 1994.
