between the lines of the Coptic alphabet
(cf. Fig. 2 on p. 245 below).2
Finds of Coptic date from the period AD
450-700 constitute the biggest assemblage.
Apart from the ostraca, we have recorded
pottery, lamps and textiles. The latter were
for the most part fragments of robes and few
pieces actually bore any decoration. The fill
from the corridor also included several
dozen fragmentarily preserved ushebti,
a faience amulet, small pieces of broken
amulets, faience beads, pieces of carton-
nages, parts of wooden coffins and ushebti
boxes with painted decoration, as well as
broken pottery ranging from the Middle
Kingdom to the Late Period.3
