Chapter Summary

The eight ostraka published in this chapter were acquired by Naphtali Lewis in Egypt in early 1935, when he was a postdoctoral fellow at the American Academy in Rome and enjoying a period of residence at the Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale. The eight ostraka concern diverse issues such as a Christian school exercise, a list of day watchmen, and a memorandum. The ostrakon of a Christian school exercise is a triangular ostrakon of red clay which is broken on the sides and bottom. Although the second column starts with the name Luke, the words chosen occur both in the Old and New Testament and in Christian texts in general.
