Studies on Elephantine

Elephantine is a small island in the Nile where, since the beginning of the 20th century, thousands of papyri were discovered, including Aramaic papyri from the Jewish community that lived on Elephantine. Although much has been published, boxes filled with thousands of papyri (approximately 80% of the total discoveries) have never been catalogued, let alone been studied or published. This particular series is dedicated to publishing text editions and studies of this large, previously unpublished material in order to make it more accessible to the Egyptological academic community.
