Ain Shams Univ. Center for Papyrological Studies & Inscriptions

The ACPSI, established in 1980, is one of the research centers of The University of Ain-Shams of Cairo, Egypt. It is mainly concerned with Egyptian papyri, ostraca and inscriptions, of antiquity and the middle ages. So it also gives room to the languages and scripts that had been in use in writing throughout Egyptian history, namely Hieroglyphic, Hieratic, Demotic, Coptic, Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and Arabic. The ACPSI is a member of The International Association of Papyrologists.
