Abstract

The ancient administrative archives and dossiers were commonly collected and kept by officials and often thrown away after some time. The finding of such groups of documents from the recovery of mummy cartonnages has open a new problem, that of the definition of the single texts as original, copies or drafts, and that of the authorship and ownership of these dossiers. Many texts in fact seem to be drafts, because of their layout or writing, but a more attentive study of the features of some of these documents shows that some papyri are actually copies written by scribes. Some examples are taken from famous papyri collections like P. Tebtunis, P. Köln, P. Heidelberg.
