Demotic Ostraca from Medinet Habu

"The Demotic ostraca presented in this volume come from the Oriental Institute's 1929/30 season of excavation at Medinet Habu, the season that yielded the Coptic ostraca previously published in this series. As in the case of the Coptic ostraca, the present publication consists of a selection of the most significant pieces. Those excluded are for the most part broken or otherwise damaged, or they are virtual duplicates such as tax receipts of the most common kinds. This is not to say that study of the excluded pieces would not yield worthwhile results."
