The Picozzi collection comes from the expedition in Egypt and Nubia sponsored by Leopold II in the 1800s. This group of artefacts includes the interesting so-called “roselliniani” mementoes, like some pages that illustrate the history and monuments of Egypt. The collection formed following a donation by Monica Benvenuti is also worth mentioning, which added to the collection bronze tools belonging to some sovereigns.
Pieces of ostraca from Oxyrhynchus are undoubtedly interesting, terracotta fragments with engravings that recount commercial trades made between Oxyrhynchus and the Bahariya Oasis.
Rounding out the dense collection of this small, but important, museum are pieces that include steles from the Ptolemaic era, small bronze statues and utensils such as cups, jewellery and amulets. The Breccia archive is just as important, which brings together writings by the esteemed archeologist, constituting a detailed narration of important discoveries in the Nile Valley.
