Abstract:
The town Jeme was built in the remains of Medinet Habu, the mortuary temple of Rameses III on the west bank of Thiebes. The Coptic phase of the town is dated to the 7th-9th Centuries AD. The papyri from die site documents the activities of die towns' inhabitants. This thesis concerns the construction of these documents and the nature of scribal practice at die site. In doing so, two approaches are adopted. The first is a study of the archival history and provenance of the documents; second, an analysis of the texts produced by one scribe from die site, Aristophanes son of Johannes, who is responsible for the largest number of documents attributable to one individual (27 of the published 135 texts).
