The Jena papyrus collection contains eight Coptic items (P.Ien. Inv. 446-453) belonging to a larger assemblage of Greek, Demotic, Coptic and Arabic papyri (P.Ien. Inv. 259-472) which Fritz Uebel described as „the Edfu purchase of the year 1911“. Uebel took the provable provenance from Edfu of a number of Ptolemaic Greek papyri to hold for the assemblage as a whole. Of five less fragmentary Coptic papyri from this assemblage published in this article, three at least are unlikely to come from Edfu. The Coptic part of the „Edfu purchase of the year 1911“ thus challenges Uebel’s generalising conclusion.

Keywords: Jena papyrus collection; Apollinopolis Anô / Edfu; Coptic; letters; acknowledgments of debt
