The Carlsberg Papyrus Collection contains more than 500 inventoried papyri in addition to a considerable amount of material that has yet to be catalogued. The collection is made up from two principal sources; papyri purchased by the Carlsberg Foundation for the Egyptological Institute (now part of the Carsten Niebuhr Institute) - these form the bulk of the collection - and papyri formerly in the possession of Prof. H. O. Lange. It further includes a two Coptic codices purchased from Carl Schmidt, a few papyri formerly in the possession of Prof. Sander-Hansen, and the Teaching of King Merikare which was purchased from Ludwig Borchardt. All the papyri are now referred to as the Carlsberg Papyri.
