    It's King Tut and his wife. Common tourist depiction.
    Much of what is marked as genuine papyrus really isn't, and might be worth confirming if you go to sell it. Maybe someone here can explain the differences, but I can't.
    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

    I agree, only the original is original, anything marked original isn't.

    Actually, original papyrus can mean original papyrus - because the only thing that means is that its made from the pith of a certain plant. (which some folks still do). It doesn't mean its old, or historic, or costly, or valuable. I agree that an expert is the way to go.

    You should go to Egypt on vacation. You can buy these everywhere for about 50 dollars.
