Is this too dificult? His selective survey focuses on Greek, Coptic, and Aramaic texts and documents.

This is a site for all with an interest in the Classics. Of course, in Demotic one could write a name with a person determinative at the end. Seller Inventory Pecirka ; R.

On the index pages, links for editions in Greek are given in the left-hand column, translations at this stage almost entirely English in the right-hand column. At any rate, translating Egyptian religious or literary texts can be positively proven by other examples with better documentation for versions both in Egyptian and in Greek. Apart from this, for the trilingual Ptolemaic decrees it has been proposed that their texts were originally composed in Greek and then translated into Demotic and a patchwork language written in Hieroglyphs.

Maybe their owner was involved in composing such decrees, as apart from his Egyptian priestly titles he also held the Greek title syngenes. Cartonnage, given that it was advantageous for paper-recycling dealers in antiquity to acquire used papyrus in bulk, often comes from large archives and contains inscribed documents that we would deem archival.

From the evidence—or rather lack thereof—the latter is strongly to be suspected. Administrative Documents assembled and transcribed from the Oxyrhynchus excavation so far include: The contract of a wrestler agreeing to throw his next match for a fee.

Other such chance evidence is the growing number of cases where Greeks seem to have held priestly titles for Egyptian cults and left statues of themselves inscribed in Hieroglyphs!

No explanatory notes. The doubt of Ariston, whether God could be a being possessed of life Cic. Thus we have to content ourselves with chance evidence.
