Oxyrhynchus Papyri Oxyrhynchus was a city in the south of Egypt. There was nothing particularly noteworthy about the ancient city—and were it not for a quirk of the environment, it would be unlikely that anyone but a specialist in Egyptology would have heard of it today. But many things have been preserved in the dry desert sands of Oxyrhynchus. When people were done with texts in the ancient city, they simply dumped them into rubbish pits in the same way that we would bin newspapers today.
