This collection was damped out and made ready for use by Mr. C. T. Lamacraft, of the British Museum.
The inventory is made up from Notes by Mr. H. I. Bell, of the British Museum,who gave as much time to work on the papyri as he could in the brief period while they were at the Museum after they were unrolled. It is therefore only provisional, and a more deliberate study of the documents will probably increase the number of definite date.
With the exception of Nos. 1 and 2, the entire collection seems to fall within the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula and Claudius. It was probably found on the floor in the ruins of a Record Office on or near the site of Tebtunis.
