The fragment here translated was discovered in 1886 by the French Archaeological Mission in an ancient burying place at AkhmÃ®m in Upper Egypt. It was published at Paris in 1892 (Bouriant, MÃ©moires publiÃ©s par les membres de la Mission ArchÃ©ologique FranÃ§aise au Caire, T. ix., fasc. 1, 1892). The ms. is now in the Gizeh Museum and has been held to be of a date between the eighth and twelfth centuries.
