The Tebtunis papyri were found in the winter of 1899/1900 at the site of ancient Tebtunis, Egypt.

The papyrus documents that were found in Tebtunis itself illustrate many aspects of daily life in the village (and its environs) during the first three centuries of our era. They also introduce some of its inhabitants to world history.
