A very large magical fragment with copious Coptic text and scattered phrases in (poor) Greek. Thanks to Professor Maria Mavroudi for identifying the languages, and to the Coptic Magical Papyri project for a detailed description and partial translation of this fragment, available at http://www.coptic-magic.phil.uni-wuerzburg.de/index.php/2019/04/05/looking-at-the-coptic-magical-papyri-iii-boundary-crossing-texts/. It is a formulary-cum-amulet to protect the pregnant woman Soura daughter of Pelca and her children. ASE.
