150 ostraca have been found at the Ptolemaic / Roman period temple.  The link has everything I've managed to find. So far there are no pictures.

The importance of ostraca for Egyptology is immense. The combination of their physical nature and the Egyptian climate have preserved texts, from the medical to the mundane, which in other cultures were lost. These can often serve as better witnesses of everyday life than literary treatises preserved in libraries.
