Distribution of finds from Abydos and Oxyrhynchus 1922

The distribution lists in the archives of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology indicate that finds from the 1922 BSAE excavations of Petrie at Abydos and Oxyrhynchus were assigned to the following cities, beside the Egyptian Museum, Cairo (the collection within the city is given, where the records name it):

Other finds were retained by Petrie for teaching and research (in the archive file as 'UCL'), and are now in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, University College London.

Note that the list may be incomplete; some finds may have been assigned but not sent. Substantial time and resources are still needed for the task of checking the archival records against the inventories of so many museums.
