The Coptic Sahidic version of the Fourth Book of Maccabees was discovered by Enzo Lucchesi in the nineteen eighties, but up to this day has not been published. This article presents the extant fragments of the manuscript, stored at the National Library in Paris and the library of the University of Michigan. The paleography of the manuscript and the contents of the version are discussed in the introductory remarks, which are followed by a transcription and English translation of the fragments.
