Abstract: We define $ {G_p}$, a p-adic analog of the classical log gamma function and show it satisfies relations similar to the standard formulas for log gamma. We also define p-adic Euler constants and use them to obtain results on $ G{'_p}$ and on the logarithmic derivative of Morita's $ {\Gamma _p}$.
