The Western Papyri Collection, Chester Beatty Library Papyri Collection Ranging in date from 1800 BC to AD 800, the Chester Beatty Library's collection of papyrus includes rolls, codices and individual documents from Ancient, Roman and Coptic Egypt.

Many of the papyri in the collection (both religious and documentary) are written in Greek, the official language of Egypt for over 1000 years from the conquest of Alexander the Great until the Arab conquest. In addition, there are texts written in hieroglyphic, hieratic, Demotic and Coptic. The Papyrus Collection was, for the most part, established in the 1920s under the guidance of senior curators in the British Museum's Department of Egyptian Antiquities and Department of Manuscripts; allied Oxford and Cambridge academics also contributed to its formation and development.
