Abstract
  • Pap C. 16, papyrus fragment, is a report on the third Syrian War (246-241 B.C.), also known as the Laodicean War. Dated around 246 B.C. , and apparently written by Ptolemy III Euergetes King of Egypt (see B.C. McGing and H.W. Parke, ‘Papyri’ page 36 in Treasures of the Library Trinity College Dublin, edited by Peter Fox). Pap C. 16 is from the Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie (1853-1942) collection of papyri. Flinders Petrie was a British archaeologist and Egyptologist who, along with his wife Hilda (née Urlin, 1871–1957), excavated many of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt during the 19th and 20th centuries.A descriptive list for the TCD papyrus collection is available in the Manuscripts & Archives Research Library reading room. It includes a list of TCD papyrus numberings, and published editions. It also notes J.G. Smyly's transcriptions, with a list of some of their former TCD numberings and locations. The list is based on a series of catalogue cards written by Herbert W. Parke, librarian; later continued and annotated by William O'Sullivan, keeper of manuscripts, and by Dr. Willy Clarysse, a leading Belgian papyrologist.Pap C. 16 is recorded in the Leuven Database of Ancient Books at https://www.trismegistos.org/ldab/text.php?quick=2602 ; LDAB id number: 2602.
