containing some thousands of mummied crocodiles, many of which were
wrapped in layers of papyrus sheets, while vacant spaces, especially in the
head, were stuffed with papyrus rolls, Demotic and Greek. Many of these
are of great size, hut it does not appear that any of them are literary.
In date they are Ptolemaic, covering the last century and a half b.c.
The mummy-cartonnages have not yet been opened, so that we cannot
tell whether the Petrie cases are to be considered average representatives
of the class or not; if they are, then a rich harvest of interesting fragments,
literary and other, may be expected from Messrs. Grenfell and Hunt's
latest find. Students of papyri will indeed be expectant waiters for gifts
from their rich table for a long time to come, especially when, to the
accumulations of Oxyrhynchus and Tebtunis, is added the produce of the
new expedition which they are to undertake in. 190(L1 for the Egypt
Exploration Fund. Quod felix faustunique sit.
