From the project website (accessed 2019-02-27):

The project Magica Levantina (ML) aims at the edition of mainly unpublished Greek magical texts from towns in the Levant in the late Roman Imperial and early Byzantine periods. Most of the texts are curses inscribed on sheets of lead but also some protective charms inscribed on sheets of gold and silver.

Print editions are planned to appear in two volumes of the series Papyrolo­gica Coloni­en­sia. The ML Website, which is being developed as a complement to these volumes, will doc­u­ment the inscribed objects photographically and include Greek transcriptions and English translations of their texts.
