For those unfamiliar with the Tulli papyrus, this is reputedly an ancient text dating back to the reign of Thutmose III that disappeared after the death of its owner, Alberto Tulli, the former director of the Egyptian section of the Vatican museum. A second story which may be closer to the truth recounts how Tulli and his brother, Monsignor Augusto Tulli, discovered the papyrus in a Cairo antique shop in 1934.
Because of its high price tag, Professor Tulli could not afford to purchase the papyrus, but the owner of the shop allowed him to copy the text which was then transcribed from hieratic to hieroglyphics with the help of the Director of the Cairo Museum, Abbot E. Drioton.
Since then it has established itself as the Holy Grail of Ufology. The reason for the huge amount of interest in the text is that the Tulli papyrus is often cited as evidence of UFOs appearing in Egypt around 3,000 years ago.
