From “The advice to a youthful scribe” as found on Pap. Anastasi V (trans. Caminos, Late Egyptian Miscellanies, 1954: p. 231).
This text is part of a corpus of material found on many manuscripts from the New Kingdom, known collectively as the”Late Egyptian miscellanies”. This set of texts comprises ‘wisdom’ literature like the extract quoted above, model letters, as well as short hymns and poems. Most of these are the same texts, or similar texts. The miscellanies appear to have been used in scribal training, possibly as a form of apprentice’s masterpiece.
