Paopi (Coptic: Ⲡⲁⲱⲡⲉ), which is known as Babah in Arabic, is the second month of the Coptic calendar. It lies between 11 October and 9 November of the Gregorian calendar, unless the previous Coptic year was a leap year. The month of Paopi is the second month of the Season of 'Akhet' (Inundation) in Ancient Egypt, when the Nile floods historically covered the land of Egypt. (They have not done so since the construction of the High Dam at Aswan.)

Paopi means "that of Opet" for the month originally celebrated the "Beautiful feast of Opet".
