Conservation

Inventarisation

There are three sets of registration numbers for the papyri. The few complete papyri as well as all fragmentary papyri whose nature is clear are given a permanent inventory number. These numbers refer to the physical manuscript, not the invididual text. Thus, for instance, P. Carlsberg 390 contains three different texts written in Greek, Hieroglyphic, and Hieratic. All the papyri are designated 'P.Carlsberg', and those with permanent inv. nos. presently cover P.Carlsberg 1-700 (with some numbers left blank). In total 513 papyri have been inventoried.

Those of the 1.000's of fragments that have been placed under glass, but which have not been identified as belonging to one manuscript or another, are given temporary inventory numbers. The temporary numbers begin with 10.000 to avoid confusion with the permanent numbers. About 2.600 temporary numbers have been given, but many of fragments (between 25 and 33%) have later been identified and either joined to texts with permanent numbers to which they belong or they've been given permanent numbers of their own.

In some older publication, one can sometimes find reference to old temporary inventory numbers but they are now out of use.

All texts with permanent numbers are listed in a computer text-file, made by Kim Ryholt, with a brief description, bibliographical information, and notes about correspondance and publication rights, when available. Kim Ryholt keeps concordance lists for all fragments moved from one inv. number to another. If we find out that temp. no. 12003 belongs to P.Carlsberg 456, then the fragment is moved and the infomation is entered into the concordance file. Similar, if temp. inv. no. 12003 joins temp. inv. no. 12401 or old temp. inv. no. 39.1, then they're put together and the information is recorded.

The Inventory of Published Papyri with Main Bibliography is available in the home page of the collection at the URL: http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_inv.html

For
the period until 1991, the list is based on W. J. Tait, Handlist of published Carlsberg Papyri, in The Carlsberg Papyri, 1 (ed. P. J. Frandsen; Copenhagen, 1991), 129-140

Publications

The papyri are beeing published both on scholarly journals (see the publication listed after the brief description of the front or back of the manuscript in the Inventory of Published Papyri on line: http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_bibl.htm ) and in a dedicated Monograph series. See the list of titles for the Series and availability in the Home Page at the URL: http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_vols.htm

Work

The work at the collection consists in the identification of fragments that can either be joined to texts with permanent numbers to which they belong or that can be given permanent numbers of their own, publication and study of the important demotic and hieratic literary texts.

Prof. Kaplony-Heckel will make a list of all Demotic documentary texts with brief descriptions. This will be published in a forthcoming Carlsberg Papyri volume and perhaps also on the internet too.

A complete or partial list of the greek documentary texts, expecially of those written on the 'back' of demotic literary texts is still outstanding. The keepers of the collection would be very interested in the publication of a provisional list on the internet or in one of the forthcoming volumes of the P. Carlsberg Series.

Highlights

The bulk of the collection consists in the demotic and hieratic texts of roman date belonging to the Tebtynis Temple library, under which there are extremely interesting demotic narrative works (Petubastis/Inaros-Texts, a Setna-text, the demotic book of Wisdom, a demotic version of Nectanebos dream, the Story of Petese son of Petetum, the story of Naneferkasokar and the Babylonians, the Story of Onch-Sheshonqy), religious-philosophic literature, scientific demotic texts: astronomy, mathematics, astrology, cosmology, dream interpretation, a herbal, a legal manual, several onomastica, world lists and grammatical texts. The published hieratic texts are of religious and cultual content, like the versions of the Book of Faiyum, Manuals of Priestly Knowledge, Daily Ritual of Soknebtunis, but there are also the 'Tebtunis Onomasticon' (Hieratic with Demotic and Coptic glosses), a hieroglyphic dictionary, a list of nomes, medical texts and the famous 'Teaching of King Merikare'.

The most relevant Hieroglyphic texts are probably the already mentioned Hieroglyphic Dictionary (with Hieratic/Hieroglyphic lemmata) fragment of the Priestly Encyclopedia (parallel to the 'Tanis Geographical Papyrus') and a copy of The Book of Fayum, other texts are a writing exercise and copies of temple inscriptions.

Under the published Coptic texts there is a Magical Text (which also contains Greek magical text) [ LDAB 6567 ], fragments of the speeches of Agathonicus of Tarsus, a Coptic medical book, and two fragments of the New Testament.

Under the Greek published texts there are few fragments of literary texts: namely a fragment of a dialogue in iambics (Menander?) [ LDAB 2739 ] a translation of the the Old Testament (Exod. 3,2-6. 12-13. 16-19) [ LDAB 3251 ] and part of a medical treatise now joined with other parts of the same manuscript in Florence [ LDAB 0244 ]. Among the several documents there are an oracle questions, lists of men, three extremely well preserved ptolemaic tax-receipt from Hawara, with the interior writing still sealed. Several fragments of a manuscript containing a register for the jewish tax, reused for a demotic literary text, are published by C.Salvaterra, L'amministrazione fiscale in una società multietnica, Studia Hellenistica 36 (2000), pp.287-348.

History

The Carlsberg Papyrus Collection consists of more than 500 inventoried papyri in addition to a considerable amount of material that has yet to be catalogued. The collection is made up from two principal sources: papyri purchased by the Carlsberg Foundation for the Egyptological Institute (now part of the Carsten Niebuhr Institute) - these form the bulk of the collection - and papyri formerly in the possession of Prof. H. O. Lange. It further includes a two Coptic codices purchased from Carl Schmidt, a few papyri formerly in the possession of Prof. Sander-Hansen, and the Teaching of King Merikare which was purchased from Ludwig Borchardt.

The updated list of contents of the published texts can be found in the web pages of the collection: http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_copt.htm (coptic texts) http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_dem.htm (demotic texts) http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_gr.htm (greek texts) http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_hira.htm (hieratic texts) http://www.hum.ku.dk/cni/papcoll/pap_hiro.htm (hieroglyphic texts)
