Abstract

This paper presents an edition of three previously unpublished Coptic epitaphs in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology. Two of these inscriptions are written in the Sahidic dialect while the third may have Faiyumic influences. Though the catalogue records for these inscriptions note that their provenance is unknown, in the case of two of the inscriptions the provenance can be established with some degree of certainty owing to textual and stylistic parallels that they share with other inscriptions with a known provenance.
