Excavations at Nessana, Volume 3
Non-Literary Papyri
C.J. Kraemer Jr., editor


In 1937 the Colt Archaeological Expedition, excavating the ancient site of modern Auja Hafir in the Negeb, uncovered two storerooms containing the hoard of Greek papyrus documents of the 6th and 7th centuries. These non-literary papyri contain military, church, and family records, as well as an Arab archive on the caravan industry.

First published in 1958.
