The papyri from the archive of Djekhy & Son proper were all written during the reign of Pharaoh Amasis. Between 570 and 534 BCE the documentary evidence is so complete that we can follow Djekhy & Son almost from year to year.Many papyri from the original Eisenlohr collection have been published in isolation since their acquisition by the Louvre in 1885. Until recently, however, the archive has largely been studied in fragments; nobody knew what it would yield if looked at as a whole.
