Aramaic labels found at Memphis, palace of Apries

Each label is identified by a letter. On one side they bear an Aramaic inscription, and, in general, on the other a demotic one. They were found together with Achaemenid seal impressions. Even at the time of discovery they were barely legible: most are preserved in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and the clearest in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo.
