1898-99 Philoteris (Faiyum)

Type of fieldwork: 
Excavation
Season summary: 

The excavations were sponsored by the Graeco-Roman branch and thus were concerned with recovering papyri from the Graeco-Roman period rather than objects or material from different time periods.

Ostraka and papyri determined the identification of the site but the excavators did not detail any significant finds.
