Fragments in Pahlavi: Seventh century AD

Another language occasionally represented in the collection is Pahlavi, the language of the Persians who occupied Egypt for a short period in the early seventh century. Few of the fragments are of great extent, so that in view of the characteristically large brushed script very little text is preserved.
