Summary
Select papyri gives a selection of Greek papyri covering a period from before 300 BCE to the eighth century CE. From such papyri we get much information about administration and social and economic conditions in Egypt, and about native Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine law, as well as glimpses of ordinary life. Also included are papyri relating to public business of various kinds in Egypt, including affairs in that country first when it was ruled by the Greek Ptolemaic kings, secondly when it was a Roman province. The earliest examples date from the reign of King Ptolemy II Philadelphus and the latest from the government by the Arabs after their conquest of Egypt in 639{u2013}641 CE. The papyri found in Egypt and included here have also yielded fragments large and small of ancient literary authors
