van der Toorn, Papyrus Amherst 63

ARAMAIC STUDIES TODAY BLOG: Papyrus Amherst 63 — Where do we stand? Professor Steve Kaufmann gives us notice of a new book on this remarkable and remarkably difficult text, which is written in Aramaic and Canaanite, but in the Egyptian Demotic script. The book is Karel van der Toorn, Papyrus Amherst 63 (AOAT 448).

Ancient Palymra is involved, so cross-file under Aramaic Watch and Palmyra Watch.
