1898-99 Dionysias (Faiyum)

Type of fieldwork: 
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.

Grenfell and Hunt assumed this was the city mentioned in papyri by the geographic location of the ruins of a stone temple from the Late Ptolemaic period.
