I purchased this papyrus manuscript from Ebay in 2013.The item was sold as " Egyptian Ancient Greek-Roman or Coptic Papyrus Fragments ". It is written on paper but the backing is from papyrus.
However upon receiving this papyrus, it was not written in any of languages mentioned above. It was written in Arabic. I couldn't decipher the meaning but I knew for sure it was written in Arabic. This manuscript could be a sort of prayer or amulet because it has a symmetrical shape which if folded resembles an umbrella. However I think this is Islamic manuscript because there is a lot of words of Allah, Hussein and Ali which are Shiite in nature. This could be written during the time of Fatimid Shiite Empire ( 909 -1171 CE ) in Egypt.
Comparing this Arabic script from a dated papyrus document from manuscriptevidence.org of 357AH ( 967 CE), they have strikingly similar script. Hence it is safe to estimate this manuscript from 10th Century CE.
I need to do more research on this manuscript and will update this entry later. If you have any info on this manuscript, feel free to share with us.
