Oxyrhynchus: A City and its Texts, Virtual Exhibition: The Site

View of Oxyrhynchus: 1981

The Oxyrhynchus Papyri Project has a modern photograph of much the same view. At this distance, little seems to have changed, and details in Denon’s drawings (see also his sketch of the ‘Phocas Pillar’) can still be observed.
