The small town of Pathyris - modern Gebelein - is located south of Thebes. After a huge revolt in Upper-Egypt was suppressed in 186 B.C., a Ptolemaic military camp was built in Pathyris where local people could serve as soldiers-serving-for-pay. The government took several initiatives to Hellenize the town, resulting in a bilingual society. The town produced hundreds of papyri, ostraca and wooden tablets, discovered during legal excavations as well as illegal diggings at the end of the 19th and in the 20th century.
Up to now, 21 Graeco-Demotic archives from Ptolemaic Pathyris may be reconstructed. For these archives, a description in PDF is downloadable:
The descriptions are also available as part of the monograph:
