Photo: The Coptic Museum, ostraca are fragmentary pieces of pottery, stone or bone bearing inscriptions or a design. This ostracon shows part of a running horse, its body decorated with motifs and a Coptic word. This limestone ostracon with Coptic script is a letter from Phrangas to the pious priest Peter, asking for news of Peter’s health.
