Papyrus in antiquity

Papyrus was a high-quality writing material in the antiquity, because it was produced in a costly procedure of the stalks of the papyrus plant. Because this plant was predominantly cultured in Egypt, the papyrus was used as an expensive and high-quality luxury writing material mostly for important and valuable documents and "books".
Close to Herculaneum, the excavated  "Villa dei Papiri" was named after a library from papyrus scrolls which was buried with the outbreak of the Vesuv vulcano. The collection encloses about in 1800 papyrus scrolls mainly in Greek language.
 A copy of the "Villa dei Papiri" is the impressive Getty villa with an archaeological collection close to the city of Los Angeles.
