A fantastic Coptic fragment of a liturgical text, post 10th Century AD, appearing to be written on an early form of paper. The text is in attractive handwriting on both the front and back. The text echoes Ephesians I, and also mentions 'Samaritan woman', 'Lazarus', and 'Pilate'. The refrain 'This is Him whom you seek', presumably in reference to Jesus Christ. Quite an interesting example of early Liturgical text and gives a peak into an early Coptic church service. Ex Hamdy Sakr collection; previously in the private collection of Alex Anckonie III, acquired during his time in the Navy in the 1960's - 1970's.
