The Archive of the Polish Academy of Sciences contains a long forgotten excavation diary of Professor Jerzy Manteuffel (1900-1954), the first Polish papyrologist who took part in excavation works in Egypt. The article is the first publication of Manteuffel's notes taken in the course of the first two weeks of French-Polish excavations in Edfu in 1937. It was possible to correlate the data found in the diary with the report on the first season of excavation in Edfu, as well as to identify some of the finds recorded by Manteuffel in the collection of the Warsaw National Museum.
