The papyri of Erlangen are held by Dept. III: Scripts and Graphical collection of the University library of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The collection contains 142 objects.

In cooperation with the University library of Erlangen-Nuremberg , the University library of Leipzig , their Papyrus Portal and the Chair for Classic Philology I of the University Würzburg the collection is now publicly available as database including catalog data and pictures within the Papyrus portal.

Essler, Würzburg, the integration into the Papyrus Portal and the technical treatment by the University library of Leipzig (Prof. Dr. R. Scholl) and the Computer Center of the University of Leipzig (J. Kupferschmidt).
