The Brugsch Papyrus (Pap. Berl. 3038), also known as the Greater Berlin Papyrus, or simply Berlin Papyrus is an important ancient Egyptian medical papyrus. It was discovered by Giuseppe Passalacqua in Saqqara, Egypt. Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia acquired it in 1827 for the Berlin Museum, where it is still housed. The style of writing is that of the 19th dynasty, and it is dated between 1350 and 1200 BC.
Some historians believe that this papyrus was used by Galen in his writings.
