THE LAST LITERARY COPTIC TEXT IN COPTIC, THE TRIADON: TRANSLATION BY DR ANTHONY ALCOCK
Dr Anthony Alcock is a prominent Coptologist with many scientific works in the field of Coptology. In 2013 he translated into English for the first time the Coptic poem known as The Triadon. The author of this poem is unknown, but it is known that he wrote it in the 14th century and that it was written in Sahidic Coptic (and Arabic).
