The typical texts of the so-called ‘votive cubits’ are handed down in a very fragmentary hieroglyphic papyrus in Florence, which reproduces the horizontal faces and their layout, when necessary with one-digit wide cases. it was published in 1990, and meanwhile new fragments were discovered and their study is in progress: before delivering a more complete edition, the a. tries to review the situation, concerning these objects and their difficult texts. the Florence fragments are described and a translation of their texts is offered, referring to the parallels: lists of gods, lists of upper and Lower egyptian provinces, subdivisions of the cubit, tables for measuring time, special numbers and so on, are subjects falling within those which are characteristic of priestly knowledge, as already proved by some larger papyri (starting from the famous ‘tanis’ or ‘Geographical’ Papyrus) and by a classical author, Clement of alexandria.
