Anthony Alcock continues his splendid series of translations from Coptic with a translation of the Coptic version of the Acta Pilati, from a papyrus manuscript in Turin published in the Patrologia Orientalis 9. This forms part of the text known as the Gospel of Nicodemus.
Here it is:

Our thanks to Dr Alcock for making this available! More please!
The apocryphal Pilate literature is a tangled mass of materials in Greek, Latin and other languages, which ought to be sorted out one day.

Has the Coptic original been published online somewhere? (Other than at archiveDOTorg, that is.)
The Patrologia Orientalis 9 is at Archive.org. I don’t know, beyond that.
