8 PREFACE THIS volume includes all the Greek and Latin papyri at present in the possession of the Library which have not previously been published in the catalogue and thus concludes the undertaking begun by A. S. Hunt in With two exceptions (552-3) the texts here presented are all documents and range from the middle of the third century B.C. to the seventh century A.D.; some were among the earliest acquisitions of the Library, others were acquired either through Rendel Harris in 1917 or B. P. Grenfell in Apart from the small group of papyri belonging to the famous Zenon archive and published by C. C. Edgar in The Bulletin of the John Rylands Library, XVIII (I934), only nos. 583, 589, 599, 607, 609, and 613 have been independently published; they are reprinted here for the sake of completeness, and while our own publications have naturally been rewritten we have reproduced unchanged the wording of Edgar's edition, placing in square brackets any additions that the lapse of time has made necessary. Work on this volume was begun some years before the war, but its publication would have been considerably delayed if Professor Turner had not consented in 1946 to share with me the editing of these texts. Professor Turner is responsible for almost all the Ptolemaic and Roman texts as I am for the Archive of Theophanes and the majority of the Byzantine texts; tlle Latin texts were divided between us. It hardly needs saying that throughout we have worked closely together. Before the war preliminary work on some of the Ptolemaic texts was done by Professor F. M. Heichelheim; any places where we have availed ourselves of his work are recorded in the notes. TWe have been fortunate in being able to consult on a number of points Professor A. H. M. Jones and Mr. T. C. Skeat. Finally, we should like to express our gratitude to the Governors and to the officers, past and present, of the Library, to the former for undertaking in such times so costly a publication, and to the latter for affording us every assistance in our work. c.

13 NOTE ON THE METHOD OF PUBLICATION LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS AND NON-LITERARY texts are printed in modern form with accentuation and punctuation. Abbreviations and symbols are resolved; corrections are usually incorporated in the text and recorded in the critical apparatus, where any faults of orthography that might occasion misunderstanding are corrected. Iota adscript has been written where written in the papyrus; otherwise iota subscript is employed. Square brackets [ ] indicate a lacuna, round brackets ( ) the resolution of a symbol or abbreviation, angular brackets ( ) a mistaken omission in the original, braces { } a superfluous letter or letters, double square brackets [ ] a deletion in deletion in the original; dots outside brackets indicate mutilated or otherwise illegible letters, dots within brackets the approximate number of letters lost. Heavy Arabic numerals refer to texts published in this volume or in previous volumes of the Catalogue. In citing papyrological publications the standard abbreviations have been used; they will be found in LSJ, p. xxiii, Table III, with the following exceptions and additions: P. Adler = The Adler Papyri, ed. E. N. Adler, J. G. Tait, and F. M. Heichelheim, Oxford, P. Ant. = The Antinoopolis Papyri, Part I, ed. C. H. Roberts, London, P. Cairo Boak = A. E. R.

14 ADDENDA AND CORRIGENDA (p. 23). Messrs. Peremans and van't Dack suggest the following reading: a7to TLfLfjs orvov Toil EK TfjS I [e.g. Toil OE'iVOS yfjs KTA (p. 28). They also point out that li[ ETEC1OV]XOV is a more probable restoration than that given in the text. 585 (p. 49). Note to I. 3: read afleplcrrovs for aflepwtovs and 'Po Vindob. Boswinkel' for 'Po Wien Boswinkel' (p. 88). Read )hvyxls (p. II 8). (nyflutvp( ): perhaps for.alyflcltovpos, with a taillike a sigma. We owe the suggestion to the Press Reader (p. 159). Read 7TMULclV (p. 16 I). " f307joovflevos = my client (cf. P. Bouriant 20). Therefore restore at the beginning of I. 10 a verb in the infinitive (e.g. [7TOLfja]UL), delete note on I. 9 and translate: 'They are bent on making a builder of my client, a man who is a peaceful linen-worker, thereby attempting an illegal act'. 659 (p. 169). This text is closely connected with P. Thead. 13, a report of a hearing before Q. Iper (cf. 653) in which the same Arion appeals, through his counsel, against the action of the tax-collectors. 659 represents an earlier stage of the same case, as in P. Thead. 13 the petitioner's father-in-law, as well as his wife and children, are dead, and that text itself is the record of the second application he has made to Q. I per. Since P. Thead. 13 is to be dated in 321 or possibly 322 (see E. H. Kase,.d Papyrus Roll in the Princeton Collection, pp. 35 sq.), the date of 659 must be pushed back to 320 or-less probably-to 321. Sabinianus will have been I p~r's predecessor as praeses of Herculia. 660, introduction (p. 170). p07t~ more probably represents a charge for weighing the coins: see L. C. West and A. C. Johnson, Currency in Byzantine Egypt, p ii. 6 (p. 174). Read J4pfLclLS (p. 179). Read VVKTOcrrpU~YOLS.

15 I. MISCELLANEOUS LITERARY TEXTS 552. HEXAMETERS 12X7'S cm. Second century B.C. On the recto parts of seven lines from the head and left-hand side of a column written in a crude, bold uncial with a thick pen. The form of the hand and the contents suggests that here is a further specimen of the literary copying of Ptolemy son of Glaucias, the recluse of the Serapeum. Other scribbles of his preserve literary texts (Euripides, Telephus (now in Milan), Page, Gk. Literary Papyri, p. 17; supposed Euripides, ibid., p. 34; New Comedy, ibid., p. 53; Poseidippus' epigrams, ibid., p. 104, the latter three in the 'Papyrus Didot' in. Paris). In these also the hand is execrable, and considerable emendation is called for to restore the text which Ptolemy was copying. This conclusion as to provenance, though unfortunately not reinforced by any external evidence, is perhaps confirmed by the appearance of two columns of accounts on the verso, in a crude but different uncial hand. The ink is badly rubbed, but the top of col. ii appears to read I i. 7TEI+[cp]iJ1J N0VfL1J 2 V U<pJ (.TOVS) 1f(3 Meao 3 R[~J i (i.e. 159 B.C.) 4 <1-7TE9<$81J 14Vn) 5 vopo (neither Antenor nor Noumenius can be traced in Serapeum correspondence) av~'.l7t9i+d 6 fla(tos) 0(3 IJq.J5(wv).

16 2 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 553. LATIN PROSE FRAGMENT 6'5 X '5'2 cm. Third centnry. Part of a column written in a practised and compact cursive reminiscent of P. Oxy. I I 14 (A.D. 237). On the score of the handwriting it was originally classified with the documents, but it is reasonably certain that it is part of a literary work, though we have been unable to identify it with any known text. On the verso in a cursive hand of the middle or later third century are six incomplete lines, probably of an account of corn; the only names surviving are nataol)"1s NdAOV, 'HpaKAEt~r'7S' and ncfktwv.

18 4 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 555. LETTER FROM AMYNTAS (?) TO APOLLONIUS r6x29 cm. [Po Ryl. Zen. 2 = SB. 7638] 6 or 9 February 257 B.C. Amyntas, to whom I have ventured to ascribe this letter, was one of the chief lieutenants of Apollonius. Some of his letters have an individual character rather rare among Zenon's correspondents, and are spiced with uncomplimentary epithets, such as KaAA"fvag 6 Ktva,So<;, Avu,/-,cfxov TOV A7)'UTOV. When Apollonius was travelling in the interior in B.C., Amyntas had charge of the household in Alexandria, whence he wrote every few days, sometimes to his chief, but more often to his friend Zenon. A phrase in PSI. 340,.l4./-,VVTaV Se ggw UK7)vovvTa Kal YEya/-'7)KoTa, may perhaps refer to the house at Canopus mentioned in the present letter. 7rVPWV Kal r0v )uv[o]kaaa/-,7)v r0v veav, 8,.KOP.UJ"EV 0 f3vf3a.w. 6por;, dft'y}1jeykap.ev rw" j3a.o"i)u:l. ~,,, N' " KE OE KaL T'Y)V LKUVOpor; TOV 7TO- YLV(i)(J"- S 8a.:ypLKOV Of,KLaV rryv [ofjo-av] EV Kavt:V- 7rW, o'liuav v Tjl-'/;v ra(acfvrwv) f3 Ka~ (Spaxl-'wv) ",.

19 555. LETTER FROM AMYNTAS (?) TO APOLLONIUS 5 7. J4VTioxov: so I read the name, though Grenfell's copy gives J4VTIBEov. The context indicates that this was a man of high position, and it is rather tempting to identify him with J4vrioxos.; Kp0s who appears in P. Rib. no receiving correspondence by the royal postal service along with the king and the dioecetes; but Antiochus, like Nicanor, was a very common name. Pax5.v is a new word, perhaps a shortened form of pax'urf)v, 'the braggart' ; it is presumably Greek, whereas PaKri or paxri of the New Testament is supposed to be Aramaic. The Alexandrians were much addicted to giving nicknames to their distinguished fellowcitizens; see the remarks of Lumbroso in Archivjur Papyrusjorschung, IV, p. 67. [E. C. Colwell in Journal Bibl. Lit. LUI (I934), 35I-4 argues that the N.T. word is not necessarily of Semitic origin and is probably identical with the word here. W. Bauer (Worterbuch z.

Addaeus was an agent of Apollonius at Memphis, and the present letter has been an account of a sum of money spent by him on various kinds of business.

20 6 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 557. LETTER FROM NUMENIUS TO ZENON 15X 13'5 cm. [Po RyJ. Zen. 4 = SB. 7640] 10 April 257 B.C. This letter, of which only the left end is in the R ylands collection, the other parts being in Florence and Cairo, has already been published as P. Cairo Zen , but I reprint it here for the sake of completeness with a few corrections made on a revision of the original. It dates from the time when Zenon was travelling with Apollonius in the Delta, and it was written by a subordinate who wishes to know when they will return to Memphis. But it took 13 days to reach Zenon, and he was actually in Memphis before he received it. Novl-''>jvtO~ Z['>jv]wv, XaCpEW.

The king's birthday fell sometime in the Macedonian month of Dystrus. But a Maeedonian date was of little use to N umenius, who naturally reckoned by the more convenient Egyptian calendar. 7. It will be noted that Numenius writes 'year 29' and Zenon 'year 28'. The former was the financial year beginning on the 1st of Mecheir, the latter the regnal year beginning a little later about the end of Dystrus LETTER FROM CRITON TO ZENON 20'5 X II'S em. [Po RyJ.

The subject of the present letter is the provisioning of the cavalrymen who were going down from their holdings to take part in the great festival called the Penteteris or Ptolemaieia: Though not published before in full, it has often been referred to and quoted, especially by Rostovtzeff, Large Estate, p. 12 I, and Beloch, Griechische Geschichte, IV, pt, 2, p Its chief interest is that it helps to determine the chronology of the festival.

(Docketed by the sender) The Philadelphian.' I. Pataecion, whose name has been deleted (I do not know why), was one of Zenon's agents. Apparently he had assigned to Aristodemus as the result of an auction (for the use of 7TPOa<(3aA6p,<ea in this sense d. UPZ., p. 534, and P. Cairo Zen , 22) a house which was said to be that of Sokeus but which had been sold by a third party, 'n)v o.7t086p,<vov. The situation is not quite clear, but one possibility is that the seller was a creditor recovering a loan by distraint, while Pataecion was acting as a 7TpriKTWp. The question at issue seems to be whether he had a right to dispose of the house (d. P. Tebt. 5, 231 fl.). 2. A~~p : a village in the p,<p{, of Heraclides and in the neighbourhood of Ptolemais Hormu, forming part of the nvv ggw T67TWV (d. Enteuxeis, p. 216). The name may have survived in the modern Hawara. 6. p,<tiae<,v means that Zenon was to prejudice Apollonius against the complainant. 7. This interpreter is mentioned again in P. Cairo Zen and PSI He might easily have used his position to do an ill turn to a native petitioner. 9. The date is interesting. Reckoned by the regnal year it would be 22 May 249 B.C., but reckoned by the financial year 23 May 250 B.C. As we know from P. Cairo Zen that Zenon had gone down to Alexandria at the latter time, there is a strong probability that the date is a financial one. Indeed it seems to me not unlikely that the financial year was the one generally used for dating by the Greeks in the xwpa. Cf. P. Mich.

30 16 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD or the reception of a distinguished visitor. From an unpublished papyrus in the British Museum Rostovtzeff has conjectured that on one occasion Philinus gave a banquet to the Icing, but the evidence is rather meagre. 13. The date suggests that, if the papyrus belongs to the reign of Euergetes, the festivity might have had some connexion with the king's birthday (d. P. Cairo Zen ). 3I. The words are ambiguous, and I do not know exactly what Philinus meant. 8';0 might be either the object (plates) or the subject (persons) PETITION TO ZENON FROM PATUMIS I2'5 X I7'5 cm. [P. Ryl. Zen. I6 = SB. 7652] Undated. The petitioner, who was an lu,ovoflos, writes about certain cattle which he had delivered to Zenon as a 1TapaKaTae~Wf). They nominally belonged to Isis and Osiris, but actually he used them as his own property. From the emphasis which Patumis lays on Zenon's protection and from his offer of a cow I suspect that he had been in trouble, perhaps in prison, and that the 1TapaKaTae~Wf) was an expedient, advantageous to both parties, for the purpose of safeguarding the cattle. It appears from P. Cairo Zen that on one occasion Patumis was brought before Zenon on a charge of robbery, but we are not told of the sequel.

Cairo Zen The new fragment, comprising the right end, makes the meaning a little clearer, but the missing part cannot be restored without considerable risk of misrepresenting the sense. It appears that the petitioner had been accused of complicity in a robbery, brought before a nomarch in Crocodilopolis, and detained there. He therefore asks Zenon, with whom he had apparently some engagement, to procure his release and so allow him to fulfil his obligations.

33 ? Arsinoite nome. III. DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 572. OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE Height about 32'5 cm. Second century B.C. Written in a careless hand of the first half of the second century B.C., and containing parts of three columns of an official letter, of which the greater portion of the second column is preserved, though there is some doubt about the restoration of col. ii, , where three fragments have been manipulated to make a join. The third column contains only a few lines of writing, but the signature has not been preserved. It may have stood in the bottom righthand corner, or there may have been more succeeding columns, now lost. The letter is probably addressed by a superior to a strategus (1. I), perhaps of the Arsinoite nome (1. 15, note). It contains a number ofinstructions regarding the selection of scribes permitted to draw up demotic contracts, and fixing a standard tariff of charges. BGU. 1214, an official letter, also of the second century B.C., from the strategus Ptolemaeus of the Arsinoite nome, deals with a later stage of the same transaction, the transmission of the list of selected sqibes and the tariff fixed KaTd. Td. 'nro llpwtapxov TWV (Awv Bt[ a JO'a ')llevta. There are a number of verbal r.eminiscences between 572 and BGU (cf.ll. 56 ff., which suggest a different restoration from that of the editors for BGU. 1214, 14 ff.), and it is tempting to think that 572 is a slovenly copy of Protarchus' original instructions. If so, it is perhaps a portion of a roll containing a dossier on the whole transaction, and not the original letter ; this would explain the absence of signature, and the careless mistakes and erasures. Schubart, Eirifuhrung, 302 (cf. Amtliche Berichte aus den konigl. Kunstsammlungen, xxxvi (Berlin, 19 14), has already drawn attention to this transaction for the light it throws on the native and social policy of the Ptolemies in the second century. It remains to notice the officials interested. On the side of the king the recipient of this letter is to consult with the EtnO'TaT')S (i.e. the civil officer), the e7tto'tat,)s TWV vaakttwv, the nome OlKOVOJ1-0S, and royal scribe; representing the natives are the e7tto'tatat of the temples, the apx.. pei:s (and apxt p {at if is not a mere mistake and the restoration ofl. 34 is correct), and the AaoKp{Tat, Wilcken's distinction between e7tto'tat')s and apxt p VS of a temple as separate offices (UPZ. I, pp. 44-5, cf. Grundz. p. I I I) is confirmed. This document is of value as clearly distinguishing between the three different types of office denoted by e7tto'tat')s. Col. i

CPOPOV TO;] cpapflrikov: this tax (?) and its connexion with the Serapeum is new DECLARATION BY A FARMER OF THE TAX ON FRUIT-TREES Arsinoite nome. 7X24'5 cm. 235 B.C. This strip of papyrus, the verso of which is blank and which has been folded seven times horizontally, contains a declaration by Ptolemy, farmer of the tax of one-sixth on fruit-trees for the Arsinoite nome, to certain fruit-growers that he has waived this tax on their fruit-trees, but has deducted the supplementary 20 per cent., which has been paid into the royal bank. This is probably the earliest dated occurrence of the EKT7J nvv akpo8pvwv, usually regarded as a branch of the a7t6flotpa (cf. Kuhn, BGU. VI, pp. 93 if., and most recently Cl. Preaux, L'Economie royaie des Lagides, 179, n. 2). The supplementary 20 per cent. or 7Tlir fl7ttov has not occurred before. Some light on it and on this declaration is to be gained by a comparison with BGU. 1311, a very similar declaration of 146 or 134 B.C., where the farmer of the tax of one-sixth on fruit-trees for the Tentyrite nome concedes (avyxwp,;;) to two individuals the right to harvest and dispose of the produce of their date-palms on payment of 400 copper drachmae. If we may assume the simple 71'tK XwpT)K VaO of 575 has the same meaning as the fuller Tpv(yav) KaL StaTl8( 08at) TOVS Kap7Tovs ofbgu. 1311, and that the round figure of 400 drachmae in the latter is an 7Tl7T jj,7ttov, the cases are identical. We may observe that the term 7Tl7TEjJ,7TTOV implies a prior tax demand or assessment, and that both our text and BGU (dated in Payni), precede the gathering of the crops. Perhaps then by arranging to pay a supplementary charge (amounting to 20 per cent. of the assessment of the EKTT)) before the harvest the cultivator signified his agreement with the assessment presented to him by the /

39 575. DECLARATION BY A FARMER tax-far.mer, tacitly undertook to pay it in full after harvest and thereby earned the right to dispense with official supervision at the picking of his fruit. If this speculation is anywhere near the truth, there were two methods of avoiding supervision at the gathering of fruit crops: either by paying the assessment as soon as rendered, or by paying a supplementary charge of 20 per cent. and the main payment after disposing of the harvest. This consideration may perhaps account for the second total (cf. J. G. Milne, JE./'!'. xi. 269 if.), which appears in 5 of the 15 known receipts in ostraca for the EK'rTJ TWV d«:p08puwv (BGU ; Wilcken, Gk. Ostr. 1; Tait, O. Ashmolean 1). The second figure which always increases the amount by 20 per cent. may perhaps be regarded as including a previously paid E71"{71" fl71"tov.

Third century B.C. (Euergetes). This strip of papyrus, not complete at the top (cf. note on 1. I), contains two certificates given by persons responsible for the cargo of various Nile boats that they had discharged it in Alexandria. They are summary in form, can never have served as commercial or official bills of unloading, and signify no more than the fulfilment of responsibilities. It seems not unreasonable to conjecture that they were made out to local officials by the persons concerned on their return (whether by boat or overland) to the sailing ports up the Nile, for this papyrus must have been found in the chora. No details of cargo are given, though it is tempting to connect the certificates with the state transport of corn (for the latest treatment of which and references see H. Zilliacus, 'Neue Ptolemaertexte zum Korntransport', &c., Aegyptus, 1939, 59 if.; E. Borner, Der staatliche Korntransport im gr.-rom. Aegypten, Hamburg, 1939).

The petitioner requests intervention against a woman and her son who refused to await a proper judicial investigation regarding claims to property, due to be conducted before the official supervisor of the tern pie, and were alleged to be ind ucing busy bod y friends to take up the case contrary to a published royal decree. The stolistae of the Labyrinth, the famous temple of Amenhet III near Hawara (see Kees in RE., s.v.) appear in SE = Hunt and Edgar, Select Papyri, I. 104, and also PSI. 857 as reinterpreted by C. C. Edgar in Archiv, XIII In discussing the latter text Edgar conjectures that the stolistae 'who formed a corporation with priests of their own, were the custodians of corpses brought to the

One of these three persons is named i4.pjla,s MapHnuo.,)xov, and it is tempting to identify him with the i4.pjla,s who is father of the petitioner (also a Tap'XEvT.ryS at Hawara) in 577.

Judas does not here object in principle to the payment of this special fee, but he protests against the action of the village scribe in raising the amount of it, and appeals to the E7nJLeA7)T~S for redress. The petition is written in a bold, square, careful uncial hand to be dated in the first century B.C. The '23rd year' which is referred to can only be 92-9 I or B.C. and the appearance of the hand is in favour of the later date.

46 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD of a vertical fold. On the verso of this missing half would have come the signatures and seals of the witnesses; the verso of the surviving piece is blank. The text has been drawn up by or on behalf of one Heracleides, a member of a soldiers' club, and by it he bequeathes (or, as the document is not drawn up in testamentary form, we should perhaps say 'assigns in the event of his death'; KamAd7TW can only bear one meaning whatever the form of the document) his mg>lk6v or burial benefit (see note to 1. I) to which he is entitled as a member of the club, of the value of IOO drachmae. But what is more remarkable than that such a benefit should have been transferable during the lifetime of the member is that no assignee is named, and it is clear from and 9 that this is not because the name of the beneficiary has been lost in the missing portion. In other words, the assignment is negotiable; payment would be made to whoever presented the document without (as far as we can tell in the state of the text) any time-limit. To this procedure there is a parallel in the remarkable loan of 74 B.C. (P. Mich. Inv. 605I = SB. 7532) published by A. E. R. Boak in Aegyptus, XIII (I933), p. I07; here the space where the name of the creditor would be expected is left blank both in the inner and the outer texts, and the only explanation is that of the editor, that it was intended to be negotiable. I It is just possible that the purpose of our document was a little more limited and that Heracleides was bequeathing his benefit to the club (see note to 1. 5) through its officers and that, as the officers changed each year, it was made payable to any officer of the club who presented it. This, however, would be a cumbrous procedure, is not supported by the wording of and 9, and could not have been fully stated in the available space. The hand is of a late Ptolemaic type, and the 'third year' of1. 4 is most probably that of Auletes (78 B.C.)? The only other possibilities, both less likely on palaeographical grounds, are 49 B.C. (the third year of Cleopatra), or the third year of Augustus (27 B.C.); but we should not expect to find a club of 'fellow soldiers' (not veterans), all bearing Greek names, still in existence then.

47 ~~~~~~~~~ ASSIGNMENT OF BURIAL BENEFIT 33 I. uvi'ijo"aov: here denoting warrant, authoriza.tion of payment. T"4>'''(OO): the meaning of the word in this kind of context is clear from P. Ent. 20 and 21, complaints that the thiasos has not paid the burial benefit due to the petitioners (where see the editor's' admirable commentary and notes). That the club contributed to the funeral expenses of its members does not mean that it was a burial society; it was a common function of such associations (see in addition to P. Ent. 20 and 21 the introductions to P. Mich. 243 and 244). 2. e[m4>'povt< cannot be read at the end of the line; the letter looks most like a 4> or 0, though a T (e.g. T[ OOTO) is possible. 3. Nothing surviving in the outer text corresponds' to this line. The numbers are clearly ordinals, not cardinals as the line above (contrast p in l. 2) indicates; beyond this it is difficult to be certain of anything. The writing is very cursive here, but either TVX'''S or less likely TVX,)S seems certain. Mr. Skeat's suggestion that this is a description of the military units to which Heracleides and his fellow members belonged is attractive, but though G')(J. fov is used of such a unit in P. Amh. II. 39, 2 (G')(J.'" is more frequent and might be read here; but in this type of hand < is to be preferred as a reading to with a sign of abbreviation) no supplement can be found for the preceding word in the vocabulary of Ptolemaic military organization. It is tempting to read <""TOV]TCl.PX{"s but to do so would be to strain the writing too far (compare the relevant letters in l. I, in particular the T, ", and pl.

51 Oxyrhynchite nome AGREEMENT FOR CESSION AND CULTIVATION 30 November 42 B.C. Two fragments, non-contiguous, one from the head, the other from the foot of a ega/-,aptvpos uvyypa"'~ dated in November 42 B.C. To judge from measurements, unless the contract ran to two columns, which is unlikely, not more than 10 lines are lost. The document was folded several times horizontally in antiquity, and the points of folding strengthened on the verso with small binding strips of papyrus, some of them written on. Because of the mutilation the contents of the contract are obscure. The second fragment (reminiscent of a contract of 7Tapa./-,ov0) shows a certain Chares as agreeing, in view of a consideration to cover expenses, to perform for the ensuing year agricultural work for Dionysia, or to pay a fine in case of default: and the right of execution rests with Dionysia. The docket on the verso, however, is o/-,(oaoyla) 7Tapaxw(P0uEWS) [7TpOS] Llwvvulav, and that there has been some transfer of title is confirmed by the tax-farmers' endorsement, implying a transaction in which some of the YKVKAWV taxes were payable. It is unlikely that 7TapaxdJprJutS has its full technical sense of transfer of a KAfjpOS KaTOtKtKDS (for most recent discussion see P. Fouad I. 38 introd.), or if it has that 582 is the instrument of such a 7TapaxdJp'Y)Uts. Possibly the transaction is a complex one, the cession by Dionysia of a portion (/-,Epos, cf , 14) of her KAijpOS to Chares for a sum in drachmae plus an obligation on Chares to cultivate the portion which she retains; and that the present' document records this obligation, while there was a separate instrument for the cession.

It consists of a lease for a year by Nicomachus of Halicarnassus of a vineyard near Philadelphia belonging to another settler in Egypt, Crates of Arsinoe in Lycia, to Apollonius characterized as Persian of the Epigone. The vineyard, 6 arourae in extent, is described as sandy (v ajljlos), but seems to have been in

53 583. LEASE OF A VINEYARD 39 working order. The terms of the lease are written out in great detail, contain several new words, and are of interest for the light thrown on viticulture in the Ptolemaic period, for which few such leases are extant.' The rent is a pars quota of the produce reckoned in wine (must), of which the lessor is to have two-thirds, the lessee one-third, after certain specified deductions have been made. These deductions are the J<ae~J<ovaa chr6f1-0lpa, wages for the treaders at the vintage (though pay for any labourers engaged in the day to day work of the vineyard is to be found by the lessee), hire of wine press, and a ~f1-lj<ao!ov of wine as pourboire to the local agricultural guild. Each party is to provide his own wine jars and his proportion of those required to contain the atr6f1-olpa. The duties of the lessee, the Epya, are then carefully particularized and include arrangements for watering and guarding the vineyard, payment of wages, pruning and attention to young plants, cleaning of trenches and conduits and repair of fences, etc. The lease is a gaf1-aptvpos avyypacp~ and is written as a double document, on the recto but across the fibres of a piece of papyrus cut from a roll. It is preserved in two fragments, and in the publication the foot of fragment i is assumed to have touched the top of fragment ii; but there is no certitude in this arrangement, and there may have been a gap of one or more lines between the fragments. The second portion is broken at the foot and there is no absolute control of the length of the document. Before mutilation it was over 50 cm. in height, and about cm. in width. After writing it was folded in antiquity both vertically and laterally (fragm. ii was folded 13 times laterally), while fragm. i, the 'inner' text, was sealed, and attested on the verso. The hand of the inner text is a thickly written minute cursive, closely resembling that of P. Amherst 43 (P. Amh. II, PI. VIII), difficult to read, especially in the places where the surface is damaged. Fortunately it can for the most part be controlled by the readings of hand three; the writer of the outer text, but its last eight lines which are much mutilated have been abandoned as illegible. At the foot of this text stood four lines in the hand of the uvyypacpocpvaag Stelias in a medium-sized characterless cursive. The outer text which follows was written in a larger, more upright and more regular cursive. On the verso are the seal attestations of Stelias and the five other witnesses, and a mutilated docket. It is not likely that the writers of this lease made an elementary slip in their dates by writing 'year I' where they meant 'year 2', for the words ETos TrPWTOV occur four times in the extant portions (11. 1,6,48,8 I). It was already known that Philometor's twelfth year as sole sovereign was equated with the first year of the remodelled kingship (see T. C. Skeat, Mizraim, 6, 33); the novelty of 583 consists in putting the change early in the year, for 9th Phaophi year I can be equivalent only to 12 November 170 B.C. On this important point support is given by the demotic P. British Museum Eg I, verso col. ii, (Sir Herbert Thompson, A Family Archive from Siut from Papyri in the British Museum, p. 5 I, n. 22) dated Year I I, Mesore 19 (= 18 September 170 B.C.), which mentions 'temple rites in honour of the reigning sovereigns', the Pharaoh and his divine sister and brother.

S.B. 7ISS, a second-century B.C. lease of a 7rapcl.8 LCTOS, has a number of provisions similar to those of the present lease and has been of some use in restorations.

60 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 584. LOAN ON MORTGAGE Provenance unknown. 7X 12'5 em. Late third century B.C. Fragment from the foot ora contract ofloan on mortgage, apparently secured on a vineyard (if that is the correct reading and expansion of the abbreviation which occurs in and 12 and verso 1. I). Provisions are laid down for a woman Arsinoe to perform certain obligations punctually, to cultivate the property, and to keep it free of encumbrances. If these obligations are performed a certain Demetrius is under penalty to carry out renewal (uvavewo"ets, 1. 9)' There is hardly sufficient to show whether uvav.!wo"ts means simply 'renewal' (as argued by Welles in Yale Class. Stud. II, p. 24) or whether it is to be taken as 'reaffirmation' and a step towards foreclosure (Harmon,ibid., pp. 28 if.).' The form of penal clause suggests the former alternative and restorations have been made on this basis. At the foot a certain Apollodotus, an Alexandrine, makes certain undertakings, perhaps acting as guardian for Arsinoe. The verso, in the same hand, contains a draft agreement with many erasures referring to the same undertaking. Ptolemaic loans on mortgage are rarely met. For the latest discussion and reference cf.

Verso, 1. 2: or read at end i7tl Ta ~[ Provenance unknown CONTRACT OF LOAN AND ASSIGNMENT OF SALARY ON OATH Early second century B.C. Two fragments of a contract ofloan made in the temple of Berenice Aktia by Dionysius son of Athenagoras, whose army style was Nicholas son of Onesimus, a Cretan. Of the first fragment only about a third of the length of the lines remain, and in addition to the loss at the sides, the papyrus was folded 13 times down its height and the writing at the folds is lost. It is written on the recto but across the fibres in a tall, jagged cursive hand, which may be assigned to the early second century B.C. In view of this mutilation the details of the contract are obscure. This is particularly unfortunate in that a number of new terms occur and the context is inadequate to explain them. Dionysius, who is probably a member of the king's bodyguard, appears to have assigned his salary of 2 silver drachmae per month to meet the interest on the loan, and the second fragment written in spiky uncials (presumably the hand of Dionysius himself) along the fibres of another sheet of papyrus, contains the beginning of a f3aalalkos apt<os certifying this cession. The form and manner of this oath fulfil the conditions set out for a f3aalalkds opt<os by O. Gueraud in his commentary on P. Enteux. 26, 5-6: it is taken by the sovereign, set down in writing, and made in a temple.

PLATEI The latter portion of a deed ofloan for 53 talents and some thousands of drachmae in copper coinage carrying interest at 2 drachmas per mina per month made to one Demetrius, Persian of the epigone. Repayment is to be made to the 'lenders' (i.e. at least two persons: at the foot there are physical descriptions of two persons other than the borrower) or to 'the treasurer of the association to be appointed', " 11"pox"p,,,fj7J"OJLEVOS -rov KO'VOV XP7JJLaToq,vAag. Both word and officer in this sense are new.' Presumably the loan is made, as an investment of its funds, by the association concerned (cf KO'VWV XP7JJL[ a-rwv), and this supposition reciprocally supports the account given by 589, esp. the phrase E11"lKOWa xp~jlata. The main body of the document is written in a painstaking round bookhand with marked serifs on the feet of the letters, of considerable palaeographical service because it can be dated with reasonable certainty. The' I 6th year' mentioned in 1. I2 can only be 99-8 or 66-5 B.C., and the subscriptions at the foot in a cursive characteristic of contracts of the turn of the century (e.g. P. Amh. 50, I06 B.C.; P. Adler G. 8, I04 B.C.; P. Ry1. 68, 89 B.C.) point to the former date as the more probable.

66 DOCUMENTS OF THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD 587. DEED OF LOAN Tebtynis. 15'5X26 cm. 9 February 87 B.C. Loan by Paos, son of Onnophris, Arsinoite to Psillous and Peteesios and their mother, Persians of the epigone, of 2 copper talents, 2,500 drachmae for 5 months at 2 drachmae per mina interest every month. The loan is in the form of a JgafLap'TVpOS CTvyypaq,~, with scriptura interior and exterior (cf. SB. 7532, a close parallel, and the latest discussion of this type of document in introd. to P. Merton 6). It is worth noting that only the Egyptian name of the borrowers is used in the scriptura interior. On the verso opposite the foot of the scriptura interior are scrawls (all in the same hand) arranged in groups of three lines each as if they were meant to stand as seal attestations. The document was folded in antiquity twelve times down its height, and later cancelled by oblique strokes terminating in flourishes. When the scribe cared to do so he could write an interesting and well-formed cursive, but he hurried over the ordinary formulae in a scrawl that makes no attempt to distinguish individual letters (what Wilcken, Grundzuge xlii, terms 'Verschleifung'), and these parts of his work can hardly be said to be read. n :TlE'I]a{c.n TOi} (1st hand) '~9(avEt(Tfv) [ITaw,>] 'C)!'!'w(q,p,o,» '1j.p.<n(VO{TYJ'» 'l(,aaovn KaL [A-PIL[a,,,,, ApfL[at]o,> (TO''» /3 Ka, ~ fl7}(tyjp) TEPVW,> ITETW[LO], [ITEPCTCVYJ Xa(AKOU) [(TaA.) f3l H,!,!yyp'aq,~q,(vAag) 'I~p'aK(AEtoYJ'».

PLATE I Acknowledgement by Sochotes, son of Sesnosis, to Sosibius and Ptolemaios,sons of Protarchus, of the repayment of a loan of money contracted six and a half years previously. A point of great interest is the description in 1. 8 of the repaying debtors as MaKe80vES and the express statement that in the contract ofloan they were described as IUpO'a, TijS Emyovijs. This provides an effective demonstration' of the conclusion argued on general grounds by J. G. Tait (Archiv, VII. 180: cf. Zucker in RE. XIX ff.) that the designation IUpO'a, TijS Emyovijs does not indicate Persian nationality or race or a population class, but is a legal fiction voluntarily submitted to by debtors, &c., in contracts, the effect of which was to provide additional security for the creditor. Tait conjectured that this practice was not an innovation of the Roman period, but was introduced under the Ptolemies; the present document shows that the date of its establishment can be carried back to February, 84 B.C. (the date of the original loan) and it was clearly not novel then. It can in fact be traced back farther to 105 B.C., the date of P.

The contents of the recto form at first sight a curious mixture. The first eight columns, the work of one hand but with corrections and marginal notes by a second, form part of an account of moneys due for recovery; beginning at col. 9 another hand has set out the method for finding 'lunar' new moons and drawn up a table of equivalents. The verso was later used for an account arranged by days of the month, of which parts of 15 columns can be traced, but the writing is mainly effaced.

From internal evidence the date is October 180 B.C. and provenance Philadelphia (see Bulletin, I.e., p. 82). In the original publication, to which the reader is referred, evidence was marshalled which suggests that the sums, &c., recorded in the first eight columns were debts due to an association or gymnasium; and further that the most important of these debts in money were in fact sums advanced by the institution in question to its members, at interest of 2 per cent. per month (the [e},r(kolva xp~f.la7'a of 1. 85). The astronomical section beginning in col. 9 is concerned with the determination of the character oflunar months by means of a 25-year cycle which states that 25 Egyptian years = 309 synodic months = 9, I 25 days. Though it is well known from the Almagest (VI, chap. 2 and 3), the importance of this cycle for ancient astronomy has emerged only with its recent discovery by O. Neugebauer in association with contemporary starting-points, the latest at

The period of the table is 25 years, 309 months (including intercalary months), 9,125 days. It indicates the lunar months and which of them are full, which hollow, which intercalated; and in what sign of the Zodiac the sun will be during each month. "When the sun has traversed the 25 years it will return to the same starting point and revolve in the same manner. The first year of the period is the same as the first year as reckoned by Queen Cleopatra and King Ptolemy the son, gods Epiphaneis, in which also they took over the kingdom. The sun stood each month as follows: Thoth in Scorpio, Phaophi in Sagittarius, Hathyr in Capricorn, Choiak in Aquarius, Tybi in Pisces, Mecheir in Aries, Phamenoth in Taurus, Pharmuthi in Gemini, Pachon in Cancer, Payni in Leo, Epeiph in Virgo, Mesore in Libra.

77 RESOLUTION OF A cruvoso~ Provenance unknown. IIX 12 cm. Cleopatra? This document is in a tantalizingly tattered state: in addition to the loss of the left-hand side and foot, and a large central tear, many of the horizontal fibres carrying the writing have flaked off. Because- of its importance, however, a complete transcript is given. It appears to contain a business resolution of a avvooos that cannot be more closely defined, meeting in full session (avvaywy~) in a Jewish house of prayer (7TpoaEvx~), under a president (1) and with its ypap.p.atevs. As an illustration of the use of these terms the first line was quoted in Harvard Theological Review, XXIX (1936), p. 72, n. 10 I. It must, however, be admitted that in the fragmentary state of the text, the only reason for supposing the avvooos to be Jewish is the choice of a 7TpoaEvx~ as meeting-place. To judge by the handwriting, a minute spidery cursive, the date is of the second half of the first century B.C. The appearance of Ptolemaic court titles is not absolutely, decisive for a pre-roman date (for their possible survival into the early Roman period cf. Schubart, Aegyptus, XIII (1933), p. 64), but perhaps the reign of Cleopatra is a safer guess. The court titles ( see notes) are themselves of interest.

Much of the writing is effaced or confused by earlier traces of ink, so that the address cannot be read, and it is impossible to determine whether the letter is a private or semi-official one.

81 IV. DOCUMENTS OF THE ROMAN PERIOD (GREEK) 594, TAXATION TOTALS FOR KARANIS Arsinoite nome, II'3 X II'S em. A.D. I4S-6 or I67-8. Portion of the top of two columns from a tax-list setting out taxation amounts by villages 'for the 9th year'. The first column, containing ten complete lines, deals with Karanis; the second, of which only the beginnings of lines survive, and which is less easy to interpret, covers Psenarpsenesis. If, as is probable, the sums refer to amounts actually collected, this document may be regarded as a (To7TapXtKos) i\oyos i\tjf1-fultwv apyvptkwv KaTa Kc/,f1-aS as referred to in BGU. IX, pp. 83 if. On palaeographical grounds the 9th year may be either A.D or 167-8, with a slight balance in favour of the earlier date. The totals are of considerable interest, and on them may be based a rough estimate of the tax-paying population. For example, 38,3 I 2 drachmae were collected for "Aaoypaq,ta: assuming a payment of 40 drachmae per head, this would give 958 payers. But there would of course be some who paid at reduced rates, and the taxable population of Karanis was probably over 1,000 males. This conclusion is confirmed by the figures for the VtK~. Assuming payments of It drachmae per head, 1,275t drachmae gives a total of 1,093 taxpayers. It is interesting to compare this result with the figures obtained by counting the names in the Indexes to P. Mich., vol. IV-about 690 names, plus 180 mutilated ones, all for Karanis. From the Indexes to BGU. IX Theadelphia appears to have had about 600 taxpayers at roughly this period. It is worth noting that at the date when this return was made there was only one Jew in Karanis. Col. i Kapav[80s () «TOVS) Aaoy(pa.q,Co.s) (raa.)"

The varying orthography makes it clear that both yeppwv and yepwv are from a nominative plural Y'po., and the reference is to a tax on the perquisites of priestly office. Kortenbentel's note on BGU. 1894, 57 is therefore to be rejected. Only partial information is available in Wallace, Taxation, p It is clear from P. Mich. IV that the amonnt collected varies dr. 2 obols tacitly includes I dr. for dtro.px~: Wallace, loco cit., p The reading and therefore the nature of the tax is uncertain. Line 24 below seems to refer to the same impost. So also probably the impost in P. Fay. 42a, col. i, 15 read by the editors as ~... 9V /l-vf!( ). A relatively large sum is concerned, to which I per cent. tax and crier's fee is added. 9. p' 0.- is presumably for (JKo.'TO"Tfjs) (/L,Bs), and the total, I,I35t squares with the previous line. But it is not clear how 39 drachmae is a JKo.'TO"'T~ of 1,090 dr. The figure in and 9 can hardly be read as '.1 instead of :4.; it is exactly similar to the :4. of I. 3. Wallace, Taxation, pp , sums up the information available concerning money JKo.'To""o.i. A reference to BGU. 1894, 9 (and elsewhere) should be added.

83 595. LIST OF MISSING PERSONS Arsinoite nome. 121'5 X 29 cm. A.D. 57. The recto of this list (under the description P. Ryl. Gk. Inv. 823) was made available to H. 1. Bell for his paper 'The Economic Crisis in Egypt under Nero' published in JRS. XXVIII (193 8), 1 if. It is one of a collection of three documents which reveal grave defects during the early years of Nero's principate in the administration of Egypt, a part of the empire which clearly knew no quinquennium Neronis. Of these three documents, P. Graux 2 (= SB. 7462), the first to be published, is an appeal to the prefect Balbillus (date therefore between A.D. 55 and 59) by six 7Tp,krop s Aaoypaq,ias from six villages in the Heraclid meris of the Arsinoite nome requesting that owing to serious defaults by absentee taxpayers the strategus Asinianus should not press for a full discharge of their liabilities until the prefect held his 8LaAOywfL6s in the nome. One of these 7TpaKTOp S is Nemesion, who drew up 595. The second document is P. Cornell 24, in the same hand as 595,' also originating from Nemesion (though he here uses the title AoY Vr1jS Aaoypaq,tas, not 7TpaKTwp), which contains a list of 44 persons described as a7topol av Vp TOL who were in arrear with poll-tax and dyke-tax at July, A.D. 56 (Epiph in Nero's 2nd year). 595 then carries the story forward to October A.D. 57 (Neos Sebastos in Nero's 4th year), when the total of persons missing reached the high figure of 105. Comparison with the figures for the tax-paying population at Karanis in the second century contained in 594 suggests that this amounted to 10 per cent. or over of the male inha bitants of Philadelphia. Indications on the verso of our papyrus suggest that the trouble had already begun during the later years of Claudius. 595 begins by setting out total amounts due at the date in question; for Aaoypaq,ia, 4,728 drachmas, 3 obols; for tllk», I 21 dr., I obol; for XWfLaTLK6v, I, I 00 drachmas. These totals are repeated, with variations in the figure for obols, at II. 123, 131, 186. The following nine columns then set out the names of individual defaulters under various headings, and the amount of their debt. The totals gained by addition do not in fact square with the totals given, nor are individual debts for VLK» recorded, so that the arrears for this tax must have been calculated at a flat rate throughout. In the total number of names is given as 105, which will agree with the number actually recorded only on the assumption (which is possible) that a complete line has been lost at the top of col. vi. On the other hand, 121 dr. 1 obol as total for VLK» is correct as a payment by 104, not 105 persons. The various headings are: 1. 1 I, avak xwp7jk6twv a7t6pwv V am) TOV a (iftovs), 'missing without means under the rubric "c.o. from year I"', total 4 3 names. It may be noted that of the 44 missing persons listed in P. Cornell 24, 34 recur in 595. Thirty-one of them reappear under this first heading, that is, they are still missing in Nero's year 4, though 10 have now returned to civil life. Three appear under later headings (II. 112, 116, 140), implying return and at least partial payment of arrears. The second heading (1. 57) runs: d'\'\wv avclk xwp7jk6twv am) IIavvEL TOV 7TpOKL(fL VOV) (iftovs) ls ayvoovfl VOVS T67TOVS, 'other persons who fled in Payni,, The identity was assumed by H. 1. Bell (frs., loc. cit., p. 8, n. 25) aud is confirmed by examination of a photograph kindly put at our disposal through the courtesy of Professor W. L. Westermann. Line I in the Cornell papyrus should read "ap[.>] NEI-'Eatwvo<. It is fair to add that this reading could not have been reached withont the help of 595.

84 DOCUMENTS OF THE ROMAN PERIOD (GREEK) of year 1 to places unknown', and contains 55 names. The third heading, partly defaced, begins (1. 114) JaTpayeu/-,, vo, TalL [.. ]/-,:I)[V!] L:e{3arJ'T(,n ods (J}1)8~v.[.. ] ( ), 'defaulters in year.,. month of Sebastos, whom...', and contains 7 names. In the totals are repeated. From here to the end of the papyrus other outstanding arrears are set out: I, arrears from 4 persons who died in September A.D. 55 still owing half a year's taxes; , 47 persons who had returned from flight, paid their poll-tax, and been excused payment of dyke-tax by the royal scribe (the one measure of mercy and remission recorded in this desperate situation). N emesion, however, sets out their names as defaulters, probably because the obligation to produce these funds had not passed from him. On the verso, in a different hand, are nine columns of further lists dealing with the same affair. No figures are set against the names in this case. The writing is badly effaced and difficult to read, and we print only col. i with a description of the following columns. The first column purports to be an account of the state of arrears and number of missing persons carried over at the death of Claudius. The erasure of 8 and substitution of a before (ETOUS) in was deliberate, and in the damaged heading of at least,8 (En,) is clear. On the other hand, the total amounts in are identical with those in recto col. i, which arouses a suspicion fortified by the many erasures that the verso contains rather a number of rough notes bearing on the affair than a finished account. No doubt the 8,aAoy,op.6s envisaged in P. Graux 2 would require a considerable number of supporting documents in evidence, and it is possible that both 595 and P. Cornell 24 are part of such a dossier. It is worth recording that though both 595 and P. Cornell 24 are official documents, there are differences between them of more than orthography where almost certainly the same persons are concerned which do not speak very highly for standards of official accuracy (11. 16, 41, 45 notes). As regards the distinction between 7TpdK.TWP and AoyeV'T'ljs Aaoypaq,tas, it has recently been argued by H. Henne that there is identity of function, the title AOyEVT~S being retained from the Ptolemaic period. Professor W. L. Westermann, however, questions whether a distinction may not have been maintained between Aoyeu~s as tax-accountant and 7TpdK.TWp tax -collector. Recto CoL i ITapa.

In the original publication the exiguous data in 599 and in PSI were compared with what is known of gerousiae elsewhere in the Roman world, and the tentative conclusion reached that the gerousia of Oxyrhynchus was a body for which members of the privileged class of Hellenes were eligible after reaching a certain age.

In view of this, and the implication here that this official was responsible for the enrolment of new members of the gerousia, there can be no doubt that his main duty was to maintain and revise the roll of citizens (d.

I84 n. 5) 'Ie magistrat designe etait charge des recherches et des verifications genealogiques interessant la cite'. It would be no great extension of his duties for him also to supervise the lists of magistrates and to collect fees from them on their appointment (CTT 7TTtKci, P. Oxy. 14I3, 4 et 6).

This document, folded in antiquity twice down its height and 14 times across, is written in a strongly stylized and practised hand but couched in illiterate Greek. It is an offer made by two partners, Ammonius and Dorion, to Poseidonius, factor to a lady called Theanous, to lease the olive crop in her newly planted olive-grove. This type of contract has recently been studied (for date-palms and their fruits) by N. Hohlwein, 'Palmiers et palmeraies dans l'egypte romaine' (Et. de Papyrologie, V, 49 ff.), to whose lists P. Philadelphia 12 and 13 should be added. The tenderers are not offering to cultivate the olive-grove (or olive-trees forming part of a larger property but leased independently), but simply offering a price, no doubt after inspection, for the fruit already formed on the trees, which they will harvest almost immediately. It is, in fact, a speculative operation on both sides, and an option is explicitly confirmed to the lessor ( , cf. 25-6) to cancel the contract in case of a later higher tender. The offer was made on 20 Phaophi = 17 October, but not accepted by the factor (in the second of the dockets at the foot) till Hathyr 2 = 29 October.

The olives are gathered by beating the trees with reeds LEASE OF CLERUCHIC LAND Karanis (Arsinoite nome). I7'SX22 cm. I August 26 B.C. PLATES 3 and 4 A lease of c1eruchic land written in tiny, almost illegible, cursive hands, and registered in the grapheion. The first main section (perhaps in two different hands) contains a formal lease of 49 arourae of c1eruchic land granted by the lessor Demetrius, son of Diodotus,Thessalian; the second section, in a slightly larger hand (yet possibly the same as hand 2) is a signed form of agreement to the lease accepted by the two lessees acting conjointly. Each section is prefixed by a docket, presumably written by the scribes of the grapheion: the first (written very cursively and with many contractions), has baffled us, and we leave it unread to the reader who may accept its representation on the plate as a challenge. On the verso is a red stamp which is possibly an authentication of the document. After the contract determined, the document was cancelled by oblique lines covering both sections. The papyrus has been folded nine times horizontally and five times vertically; in the course of its life, damage occurred along the folds, which were patched with small scraps of papyrus along the verso. In the published text the maximum number of hands have been distinguished, but it seems likely that hands 2 and 5 are identical, and that at the point marked 'hand 3' the scribe of hand 2 simply changed over to a more cursive and careless form of handwriting. The fact that there is no change of hand for the signatories in the second section shows that the present text is a grapheion copy. The document is among the earliest known from Karanis. Cf. also 600 and 602. Docket: (ISt hand).

VIII, p. 4; on a contract dated I07/6 B.C. published in ehron. d'egypte, XIII (I938), p. lsi, on none of which can the lettering be read. A fine Ptolemaic circular red stamp impression, of the first century B.C. if it is contemporary with the writing below it and on the recto, is in the collection of University College, London (mentioned by Sayee in Petrie, Hawara, Biahmu and Arsinoe, p. 29, no. 13). Under the stamp on the verso is Ew"1iP.f[Xos, and fnrther traces of ink (signature of authenticating official?), while the recto contains part of an oath formula. The inscription on the stamp running round the inside of a circle reads... IlTOilEMAIOY LA = (the editor's translation '32nd year' is a mistake). In the Roman period the following stamps are found: CPR. I.!I (pp. 37-8), with plate (a fine example); 174; P. Land. II, p. 206, no. 298, with Wi1cken's reading of the stamp in Archiv, III. 244; BGU.

Characteristic of all these stamps of the Roman period is that they are usually in two concentric circles: the outer carries the date, according to the imperial titulature; the inner sometimes a representation of the emperor, in two cases the letters yp, usually expanded yp(acpelov). The use of the stamp by ypacpe,ov officials for authentication of a document is proved by the phrase Kexo.paKTa, (Meyer, fur. Pap. 7, 2, etc.), and the formula cited in P. Ryl.

The present stamp does not seem to show any of the characteristics just described, and it is not easy to see what part the vojlo.px'y)s played in the grapheion. It cannot indeed be taken as certain that the stamp is a part of the grapheion procedure, for it is curious that on one of its applications the stamp runs across the cut edge of the papyrns. Possibly its purpose was to mark a sheet of papyrus for official use. Mr. T. C. Skeat suggests another possibility, that the lease was written on an empty piece of papyrus cut from a previous document which was itself stamped on the verso, and points in support of this view to the five vertical folds and the ancient patching LOAN Arsinoite nome. 9'5 x 13'7 cm.

The lower portion of a private letter in a cursive hand of the third century, probably early or middle rather than late, with an interesting direction at its foot 'To Theodosius by a safe friend because it is of great importance to our friends'. Theodosius is not the correspondent addressed in the letter (he is named on the verso) but an intermediary in the delivery. The writer may have been on military service-he alludes to his 'honoured leader' 0 KVpLOS }LOV ~YE}LcfJV (cf. 1. I I note). Everyone in the letter is described as brother, and the writer was a person of some standing in a large circle of correspondents. He employed a clerk to write for him, and forwarded another letter with this one for delivery in Alexandria. Owing to the loss of the first ten lines we do not know what the matter of importance was. The direction suggests a period of unrest in Egypt when travelling was a chancy affair (cf. P. Ant. 43)' It is possible that our writer and his correspondents were Christians. The constant use of doea</>6s, and the sense of secrecy and need for introductions might be thought to support this interesting possibility, as does the name Theodosius, normally confined to

The marginal entry is very dubiously read LETTER ON THE CURRENCY X3'8 X 27'7 em. Late third century. This letter, already well known from a quotation of the most important lines by P. M. Meyer in his note to J uristische Papyri, 73,7, was fully published by C. H. Roberts and H.Mattingly in The Transactions rif the International Numismatic Congress, London, 1936, pp. 246 ff. To this and to the comments by U. Wilcken (Archiv, XIII ), T. C. Skeat (JEA. XXV (1939),81-2), and A. Segre (Byzantion, XV (1940-1), 2S2-S), who dissents in part from the interpretation given of the numismatic evidence, the reader is referred for a discussion of the problems involved. In what follows a brief account is given of the circumstances and purpose of the letter without attempting to restate the numismatic evidence. The letter is from Dionysius, who, since he can call on the services of an qfjicialis, is in government service, to Apion, a f307)li6s or minor civil servant who, as he has in his charge moneys belonging to Dionysius, is probably directly subordinate to him and may also have been his steward. Dionysius has had information that an Imperial edict has been promulgated depreciating the Italian nomisma (elsewhere described as apyvpwv) to the value of half a nummus; the effect of the edict would of course be to send the nominal price of goods to double the price current before the edict. The edict cannot yet have become common knowledge (else Apion would not have had to be told of it); Dionysius presumably owes his inside information to his official position and intends to take advantage of it by converting, through Apion, his available cash into goods as soon as possible. On the verso Apion acknowledges the receipt of the letter and then (it seems) returned the incriminating document to its writer. Palaeographically the letter may be dated to late third or early fourth century. Neither writer nor recipient can be certainly identified from other sources, but it is worth noting that the lot which included this papyrus consisted very largely of the Theophanes archive and that the father of Theophanes (himself in government service and resident in the same part of the country) was called Dionysius (cf. 625) and that there is a fair chance that 607 is really part of the same archive. In that case a date either side of A.D. 300 would be indicated. A terminus post quem is provided (as pointed out by Skeat, loco cit.) by the expression 00 S a7tota, ~f1jijv; the title S a7tot7)s does not seem to have been affected by any emperor before Dioc1etian and no instance is cited by Preisigke-Kiessling, WE. III. 2, earlier than A.D I I This is true of the papyri and holds good generally for the regular use of the title; but it occurs on an inscription from Asia in the Severan age (erg. 39S6b) as well as in literary writers, and the expression 6 yij< Ka~ 8aAda<rrJ< B. occurs in several inscriptions of the third century (see D. Magie, De Romanorum... Vocabulis Soliemnibus, pp. 66-7).

107 607. LETTER ON THE CURRENCY 93 We may also note (to resume part of Mr. Mattingly's argument) that (1) 'TO 'hu?.!kov VDf.L!"f.Lu (or apyjpwv: the two are synonymous) can here denote only coinage or money in general; (2) the 'Italian', i.e. Imperial, money is contrasted with some other kind of money; the latter must be the local money of Alexandria which was not minted after A.D. 296; (3) vovf.lf.los is the name of a definite monetary value, probably the sestertius (see note to 1. 5); (4) as already noted, the nominaj value of the 'Italian' money is reduced (a measure of deflation). References to 'Italian money' are found as late as A.D (Stud. Pal. XX. 85: on the date of this see Skeat, loco cit.); but the contrast which our text implies would be most in place in the period of transition immediately after the closure of the Alexandrian mint. Further, Dioc1etian's edict of A.D. 301 De Maximis Pretiis was designed to counter a sharp rise in prices; this rise may well have been caused by the reduction of the face value of the sestertius recorded in 607. On numismatic grounds Mr. Mattingly would prefer a date just before 296; but for the reasons given above a date between 296 and 301 seems to us more probable, particularly as the rise in prices must have been immediate and it is unlikely that Diocletian would have waited long before attempting to check it.

R. C. Horn, The Use of the Subjunctive and Optative Mood in tke Non-Literary Papyri (Philadelphia, 1926), p For a parallel case d. P. Lond. 234 (II, p. 286), (c. A.D. 346), which also contains the suggestion of a threat. The most obvious KUKOVPY{U open to Apion would be to charge Dionysius for his purchases as a rate somewhat higher than the market price. 12. This closing formula is common throughout the third century. Vide Exler, A Stuily in Greek Epistolography (Washington, 1923), p This line was presumably written by Apion On receipt of the letter: such an incriminating document may well have been returned to its writer, who at the same time would have wanted a receipt. IS. Li<ovvO"<os is here part of the original address and occurs twice, perhaps because the papyrns was folded double. Or, if this address is that written by Apion on returning the letter to Dionysius, we should expect 7TUPr5. to precede the name, but of this there is no trace.

109 V. LATIN DOCUMENTS' 608. OFFICIAL LETTER OF INTRODUCTION? Oxyrhynchus. 15X23 cm. First half of second century. In this careful and elaborately phrased, if brief, note an imperial slave is commended to the notice of Claudius Hermeros, an imperial procurator, not otherwise known, by Ulpius Celer, his senior in the hierarchy, as the terms of the letter show. One other such letter is known from the Latin papyri-po Berol published by W. Schubart in Amtliche Berichten aus der koniglichen Kunstsammlungen, XXXVIII (1917), 334 and reproduced with an excellent facsimile in J. Mallon, R. Marichal, C. Perrat, L' Ecriture Latine, No. 22; this was written in the same century and in a hand not unlike that of 608, but is more personal in tone and comes from a lower social milieu. 608 is written in an elegant cursive slightly influenced by rustic capital; words are separated by points and long syllables are occasionally marked by accents; ligatures are the exception rather than the rule. (A facsimile of it will be found in E. A. Lowe, Codices Latini Antiquiores, II. 228.)2 Letters of introduction almost inevitably follow a set pattern; this pattern as it appears in the papyri has been studied by C. W. Keyes (Am. Journ. Phil. LVI (1935), 39 f.,) who points out how the Latin letter was influenced by its Greek predecessor. 5 J. J. [.. J jas l! [.]tibi 10 [DJ)[p Jius Celer Hermer9t[iJ [suo], salute[mj [...

The expansion of the abbreviation is very doubtful.

Or we may suggest, on the analogy of d71086s, that the letters represent tradas fac OFFICIAL LETTER A.D This letter was first published, with an excellent facsimile, by K. Brandi in the Archiv jur Urkundenjorschung, V (19 14), pp. 269 ff. (see also Wilcken, Archiv, VI. 444) from a photograph in the possession of Ludwig Traube, and only shortly before his article was published was Brandi aware that the original was in the R ylands collection. With its help it has proved possible to improve Brandi's text in one or two places; these are recorded in the critical notes. The letter is, in effect, a call-up notice served on an inhabitant of Hermopolis by order of the Count of the Thebaid Frontier through the local tribune, in which the conditions which would exempt him from conscription are carefully stated. Palaeographically it is of interest to note the close parallels to the contemporary Ravenna hands which Brandi has pointed out. The text is written along the fibres in a rounded, flowing cursive. The papyrus has been firmly stuck to a piece of cardboard so that it is impossible to see whether or no the verso is blank without endangering it.

The sentence probably began with cwm; it is difficult to see what the verb was which it governed. The r, though imperfect, is very probable and the traces do not justify reading e.g. praevidero. It is likely that a preposition (e.g. e) has dropped out before sacra (d. critical note to 1. 5). 5. The N otitia Dignitatum (Or. XXXI. 6, 24 ed. Seeck) lists a cuneus equitum scutariorum at Hermopolis. 6. militare: the li is clearly visible in the facsimile. 9. Although the Ii is not certain, n (e.g. tironiqus) cannot be read. AequaJlibus is possible, but is not a military term. 12. On the meaning of conplevi and the parallels to it in the contemporary Ravenna documents see Brandi, op. cit., p Wilcken (loc. cit.) suggests that the signs following it and below it are probably shorthand. The traces of writing in the third hand were ignored by Brandi; probably the addressee placed here his name and the date of receipt. o

112 LATIN DOCUMENTS 610. BILINGUAL REQUEST TO THE PREFECT Provenance unknown. 9'SXI2 em. A.D The interest of this fragment lies in the glimpse it gives of the chancery procedure of the Egyptian prefect in answering a libellus. The extant portion was no doubt preceded by the main body of the original request in Latin; according to all analogy the officer addressed must have been the prefect. What survives (the beginnings oflines are lost) contains (a) the last two lines of the original request, consisting of Roman consular date, in a loosely sprawling Latin cursive; (b) the signature in Greek of the applicant, made by his curator (E7Tt'Tp07TOS); (c) the prefect's subscriptio, arranged as follows: date in Greek, note in Latin introducing in the words exemplum subscriptionis [praifect]i the prefect's authorization recognovi, followed by reference in Greek to page and roll of the prefect's register of answered libelli. Then come the names, in the genitive, of seven witnesses. With the exception of the word recognovi, the whole of this section, both Latin and Greek, was written by the same hand, the Latin being a clear 'majuscule cursive'. The word exemplum prefixed to subscriptionis shows that we are dealing with a copy. Perhaps the impression of a different hand in the word recognovi is false, and the scribe has been unconsciously influenced in reproducing a different hand. It is, however, tempting to take it as the prefect's autograph authentication, as is apparently the case in other examples (e.g. P. Oxy. 720; SB. 1010). A plausible explanation of the nature of these documents is suggested by Professor A. H. M. Jones, that applications of this kind were in fact tendered in duplicate, one copy being then retained in the prefect's chancery (and perhaps published by posting on official notice-boards in Alexandria), I the other returned to the applicant. Possibly this was an alternative mode of procedure to the issue of authenticated copies, usually tablets, introduced by the formula d.e.r.e.e.b.t.s.s. (cf. Schulz, JRS. XXXIII (1943), 62). The witnesses, then, do not attest the authenticity of the copy but the transaction itself (cf. the phrase actum in e.g. SB A, interior 1. 7, exterior 1. 2). No doubt their actual signatures were placed below in the last portion opposite their seals. They are described in as]. stationis (of the prefect's office?), and it is worthy of remark that the names of two of them appear 25 years earlier, also as witnesses to a transaction of the prefect of Egypt, in SB The subject of the libellus is guess-work only: a common type of request made in this form is that of Roman ladies for a guardian, examples of which survive in P. Oxy. 720 and 1466, SB (Grenfell, Bodleian Quarterly Record, II (1919), ), P. Mich. 165, and Sanders, 'Appointment of a Guardian by the Prefect of Egypt', AJA. XLVI (1942), 94 ff. But our applicant was a man, and this possibility is therefore ruled out. Another type appears in P. Oxy and SB (Eger, Zeitschrift der Savigny-Stiftung, XXXII. 378 ff?) (cf. also P. Oxy. 2231) which are requests for agnitio bonorum possessionis. Such a request may lurk here, and has prompted the tentative restoration of'tfis I)tUKaTOxfi]s in The fact I By a coincidence P. Oxy. 35 recto (restored by Wilcken, Hermes, LV (1920), 32) contains a.pjl~veia TWV 'PWJLaLKWV, such as perhaps followed below our text, of a libellus answered by publication in Alexandria by the prefect Aedinius Iulianus in the same consular year as the present text. It is tempting to try to connect them, but the names do not fit. 2 A duplicate of the Greek translation of this application has tumed up in a new fragment published by 1{.

This interesting fact supports the view already put forward by E. G. Turner in CR. LXII. 146 in correcting P. Mich. 432, that non-citizens were drafted into legio XXII in A.D. 70. The declaration was made at Philadelphia, but its purpose can only be guessed owing to the fracture of the papyrus. Formulae and place of origin (cf. F. Schulz, JRS. XXXII. 78 if.; XXIII. 55 if.) forbid us to take it as a declaration of birth, nor was it made for census purposes, for A.D. 89/90 is the census year.

This fragment, as is shown both by the hand which, though smaller (as might be expected from its position), is unmistakable, and by its content, is part of the same document as P. Mich. VII. 43+-itself a union of two contiguous fragments in the Michigan collection. 1 I The first was published by H. J. Wolff in Aegyptus, XVII (1937), pp. 463 ff.; this was re-edited together with the second fragment by H. A. Sanders in Trans. Am. Phil. Ass. LXIX (1938), pp. 104 fl., and then republished (with a plate) as P. Mich. VIL 434. To the literature quoted there should be added the juristically important article by L. Wenger in SB. Akad. Wien. CCXIX ('94')' Abh. I, and the edition of the two fragments by V. Arangio-Ruiz in Fontes Iuris Romani Anteiustiniani, III (Negotia), no. 17(Florence, 1943)'

115 612. MARRIAGE CONTRACT 101 The form of the entire document has been conclusively demonstrated by Wolff and Sanders; although written on papyrus it is a diploma analogous in form to the wax-tablet. Of this M (the Michigan fragment) forms the first page; on the recto' of the first page, written across the fibres, is the scriptura interior; on the verso, also across the fibres, are the signatures of the witnesses. 612 belongs to the second page of the diploma; on the verso, written across the fibres, is the scriptura exterior, while the recto (the join alone would show it to be the recto)' is blank. As our fragment is from the top of the page, it is clear that the writing of the scriptura interior did not extend beyond page I (as Sanders naturally thought it did). The explanation of the blank second page is no doubt that the shape of the document, as Sanders saw, was determined by the needs of the writing on the two outer pages. The two texts, the inner and the outer, are not identical cbut usefully supplement each other.. On this Professor Sanders writes: 'The Rylands fragment is better 2 than M as exterior is usually more carefully copied than interior in double documents, but both show errors and changes in order. There was an original probably made out and checked by both parties and this original was copied both on exterior and interior of the document, but these were not checked.' None the less, it is surprising that such very considerable differences should exist both in phrasing and order, which far exceed the normal amount of error and variation to be expected when one document is copied from another. Each text has, however, been materially improved by collation with the other and the final versions are the result of collaboration between Professors Sanders and Y outie and ourselves. We are indebted to them for allowing us to print below the revised version of the inner text (omitting only the signatures on the verso); as the two differ so widely we have thought it better to print only such supplements to 612 as are certain, or nearly so, rather than attempt to reconstruct the whole text. Some other supplements are suggested in the notes; for matters of interest not commented on below the reader may be referred to the ample notes of P. Mich. VII The only certain parallel to this document is the yet more fragmentary PSI. VI. 730, although P. Mich. VII. 442 is also relevant. Since the publication olma papyrus has been published, P. Phil. I I, which enables us to date our document rather more closely. In this a certain Caius Antistius N oumissianus appears as a middle-aged landowner in Philadelphia in A.D. 141; he can be identified with the Nomissianus of M, and thus our document will have been drawn up in the early part of the second century.

VII. 433 and 439 and L. Van Hoesen, Roman Cursive Writing, tab. 3, nos. 14 and 16. Its interest lies in the word sambatha, where the substitution of mb for bb supports the interpretation of EV EafJ-f3a.Bw in P. Oxy.

As sabbata is the correct form of the word for the Jewish day while sabbatum was introduced by the Christians (cf. E.

118 VI. THE ARCHIVE OF THEOPHANES INTRODUCTION The papyri comprising this archive were purchased c by A. S. Hunt on behalf of Lord Crawford together with other texts published in this volume and were acquired by the Library in 190 r. As they are both extensive and fragmentary (the number of fragments has been much reduced but there may well be more joins to be made) it would be surprising if no part of the archive had found its way into other collections, but we have failed to identify any published texts (with the exception quoted below) as certainly belonging to it. The archive consists of public papers, private letters, itineraries, accounts, and memoranda, but no name could be attached to it until it was observed that 623, the fragmentary Latin letter of introduction, was identical both in script and in phrasing (except for the name of the addressee) with a Latin letter in the Strasbourg collection, first published by H. Breslau in Archiv, III. 168 f. As this letter provides a key to the whole archive it may be quoted here in full: Domino suo Achillio 2Vitalis. 'Cum in omnibus bonis benignitas tua sit praedita, tum 4e!iam scholasticos et maxime, qui a me cultore tuo honorijicentiae 5tuae traduntur, quod honeste respicere velit, 6non dubito, domine praedicabilis. Quapropter Theofanen 70riundum ex civitate Hermupolitanorum provinciae 8Thebaidos, qui ex suggestione domini mei fratris nostri 9Filippi usque ad officium domini mei Dyscoli vexationem IOitineris quodammodo sine ratione sustinere videtur, "inimitabili religioni tuae trado, ut eundem praetereuntem I2more honestatis tuae benigne et humane I3respicere digneris. Iuro enim salutem communem I4et infantum nostrorum, quod enim eodem minime ISpetente benivolentiae eundem insinuendum putavi. (2nd hand) Domine 16dulcissime et vere 17amantissime beatum te 18meique amantem semper 199audear. (Address on verso) 2oDomino suo Achillio ~Y f.'(6yl) <POLY L"T)S (2nd hand) 2IVitalis. This letter provides a link between the public papers (Theophanes as a scholasticus in goveni. ment employment would naturally use for scrap paper the discarded documents of his department), the private letters (e.g. 624), and the travel accounts, while the information that he was a native of Hermopolis explains both the origo of the find and the number of papers about the running of an estate in its neighbourhood. We learn furthe~ that Theophanes was an advocate and legal adviser of some high official and from internal evidence (such as the nature of the public papers and the fact that on his return journey he cuts across the Delta in the direction of Alexandria) we may infer that he was on the staff of the Prefect of Egypt. His standing must have been considerable for him to have been given introd uctions (which, as their presence in his archive indicates, he failed to use) to provincial governors in Syria; one of them, Achillius, was Governor of Syria, while Dyscolus, the addressee of 623 who resided at Antioch, may have been the Praejectus Praetorio per Orientem. Philippus, the superior both of Theophanes and probably of Vita lis, the

119 INTRODUCTION 105 writer of the letters, was probably the augustans of Egypt. A further clue both to Theophanes' position and to the date of the archive may be found in the identity of the writer of the letters. This Vitalis may with fair certainty (the name is uncommon) be identified with the rationalis Ovml) of P. Vindob. Boswinkel 14. As has been argued elsewhere (see C. H. Roberts, 'A Footnote to the Civil War of A.D. 324', in JE.A. XXXI (1945), 113), the situation which this document envisages is that immediately anterior to the outbreak of the civil war between Constantine and Licinius in A.D The price level, recorded in the accounts in the archive is such that they must be placed in this decade or the years immediately preceding; we are therefore entitled to identify the Vitalis of our letters with the rationalis of the Vienna document. Theophanes will have been an official on his staff, and the purpose of his journey may have been connected with the financial preparation for the civil war. A terminus a quo is provided by one of the official documents, the verso of which was later used as scrap, which is dated in A.D. 3 I 7; so we may place the date of Theophanes' journey together with that of most of the papers in the archive between 3 17 and 323. The public papers may properly be regarded as part of the archive and not as the chance results of Theophanes' choice of scrap; in the petitions (addressed to the Emperors but getting no farther than the office of the prefect) no less than in the taxation return there is a financial interest which would suit the hypothesis that Theophanes was employed in the finance department and was converting departmental waste paper to his private uses.' If the private letters are disappointing it is their condition rather than their content that is responsible; but even in their present state the literary essay in the form of a letter sent to Theophanes by his sons (624) is a document without parallel among the papyri and evidence of the family's cultural background. This is, as we should expect, thoroughly pagan and Hellenic, as witness the classical names such as Menelaus (such names enjoyed a revival in this century); we may reflect that in the same decade in which Theophanes worked out his itinerary for Palestine, Eusebius was composing his Chronographia on the sacred geography of that country. The itineraries which Theophanes worked out for himself in stages corresponding to the official mansiones and mutationes and whose gaps can sometimes be made good by the accounts since he notes the places where he spent the night, are perhaps the most interesting part of the archive. He set out, probably from Antinoopolis, and travelled to Babylon by river, reaching it probably about Phamenoth 23 (March 19). He then went to Alexandria, returning inland again as far as Nikiu, at which point his journey to Syria really begins. The first stage recorded on his itinerary is from Nikiu to Athribis, where he arrives on Pharmouthi I I (April 6). He then proceeds in an east-north-easterly direction by a route not recorded in the ancient geographers2 until he joins the main road from Babylon to Pelusium at Heracleopolis Parva. From this point onwards he is on the 'great road' of the Antonine itinerary, linking Europe, Asia, and Africa. After he leaves Babylon there is no indication of his means of travel, presumably because he was travelling by government post. He covers the distance 'One of the petitions, 621, carries what may be traces of a s"bscriptio; we might infer that Theophanes referred them to a higher authority in Antioch. We may note that it is only for the accounts of the homeward journey that he makes use of them. The same route was taken by Titus in A.D. 69 from Alexandria to Pelusium (los. B.I. IV. 659 sq.). p

120 106 THE ARCHIVE OF THEOPHANES from Pelusium to Gaza in 5! days, a journey for which 7 days were normally allowed (see K. Miller, Itneraria Romana, p. 814); Titus' legions, rushed to Palestine in A.D. 66 to suppress the Jewish revolt, had with full equipment covered the same ground in 5 days, while Alexander's troops had taken 7 days for the reverse journey. He keeps to the coast as far as Askalon and then takes the inland road to Lydda, rejoining the coast route at Caesarea; he then goes straight up through Tyre, Sarepta, Sidon, Beyrout, Biblus to Tripolis and thence to Laodicea and Antioch, which he reaches on Pachon 7 (May 2). He spends over two months in Antioch and starts back about Epeiph 26 (July 20). He follows substantially the same route,' travelling in more leisurely fashion; by Mesore 12 (August 5) he is back in Pelusium and on the 16th in Heliopolis. As the express posts averaged 5 miles an hour including stops (see Friedlander,Sittengeschichte, II, p. 280 (Eng. trans.)), Theophanes' average of 32 miles a day is not excessive; his pace naturally increases once he is through the desert. As his journey from Heracleopolis Parva to Antioch can be followed in the Peutinger Table (P), the Antonine Itinerary (A), and-for the stretch from Caesarea to Antioch-in the Jerominan map (J), it may be of interest to compare Theophanes' estimate of the distances with theirs. In the following table the first column gives the stages, the second the points of departure and arrival, the third the distance in Roman miles, all as recorded in the papyri; column 4 then gives the mileage according to P, 5 that according to A, 6 that according to J; in the list the names are given in the standard form, the deviations from which in the papyri are pointed out in the notes. It will be seen that his longest day's journey was his last, on which he covered 64 miles. The travel accounts speak for themselves, but a few points of interest may be noticed here. Theophanes' average expenditure (and he did not often entertain) is between 2,000 and 3,000 drachmae a day; on his slaves, whose number is uncertain, 900 dr. a day is spent. It is interesting to see how cibarius (used in its ordinary sense cibaria = victuals, rations) is employed in an extended sense to express quality, or its absence; thus it is used as an adjective qualifying all kinds of supplies and meaning 'cheap', 'ordinary', 'utility'. When the party gets to Syria, the diet naturally becomes more varied; figs, apricots, damsons, mulberries, clingstone peaches all appear on the menu. After food and wine his heaviest expenditure is on baths, soap, and then on papyrus. Among the minor items may be mentioned his purchase of a wine jar in the shape of Silenus and of snow, presumably to cool his wine, in Biblus. Exactly how large his party was we do not know; there were two other ofiiciales, Theon and Hermodorus; Eulogius, perhaps a member of another mission who supplies them with funds in Askalon; Silvanus, Theophanes' steward, and Horus, son of Bellus, who buys the papyrus and may be the clerk who actually wrote these accounts. Accounts are kept day by day, and the daily totals are added up not only at the end of each month, but also at the end of each five-day period. We thus have evidence of what appears to be a five-day week; an astrological week of this length is known from P. Oxy. 465 (a second-century text which is markedly Egyptian in character), but of whose use for ordinary purposes there would seem to be no evidence since Babylonian times (see Boll in RE.

122 108 THE ARCHIVE OF THEOPHANES 616. TAXATION LIST OF THE PROVINCE OF AEGYPTUS IOVIA Frag. (a) 33'SX23 em. C. A.D. 3I2. Two fragments from a roll listing contributions due or received from the nomes (strictly speaking, cities and regions, but even in official documents the old usage died hard) of the western and central Delta. Neither fragment yields a complete list Of nomes in the province nor the nature of the taxes in respect of which payment was claimed-if indeed the roll contained records of payments for different taxes and not the payments of the same tax for different years-but apart from the interest attaching to the list of nomes as such, 616 may be held to confirm Mommsen's view, recently revived by Prof. A. H. M. Jones (The Cities if the Eastern Roman Empire, p. 480, n. 5 I), as against Wilcken and Gelzer that at this date Aegyptus rovia consisted of the western and central Delta and that consequently Aegyptus Herculia included the eastern Delta as well as the Heptanomia. In column ii of fragment (a) payments are expressed in bullion as well as in myriads of denarii. The text is too broken for it to be certain whether these are two separate entries or whether the value of the bullion is expressed in denarii. In the first case, the collection of bullion is probably that referred to in P. Oxy in which the city of Oxyrhynchus is assessed at 36 lb. of gold, to be sent to Alexandria for forwarding to Nicomedia in Bithynia by September 1st of an unspecified year. The relatively high contribution demanded from Oxyrhynchus would correspond to that city's known importance in this period. In the second case, as the price of gold on the basis of the one complete line in this column (I. 10) would be slightly lower than the rate of 100,000 denarii to a pound of gold quoted in P. Oxy. 2 I 06, the latter will have to be dated a year or so after The geographical information in this text was made available to Prof. Jones for his Cities if the Eastern Roman Empire, in which (Appendix IV) the cities as known from Hierocles, Georgius, and other later sources are conveniently tabulated. It is worth noticing that the order in which they appear in 616 does not correspond to that of any of the later sources, nor does it follow any obvious geographical principle. The verso of both fragments as well as the recto of fragment (6) has been used for jotting down Theophanes' travel expenses. Of the text on the recto (which was clearly a draft) only two of the entries, for the 19th and 20th of an unspecified month, are complete: 3 Ttl-'ij(s) aok[vwv] (op.) a, 4TtI-'(ijS) 7TEpao[Kw]v (op.) a.

The figures 1,000-9,000 are indicated by a stroke to the left of the numeral, a system which came into use in the fourth century, and of which 616 provides the earliest example (see H. J. M. Milne T. C.. Skeat, Scribes and Correctors of the Codex Sinaiticus, p. 62 sq.). 6. For the variant forms of this name see H. Gauthier, Les Names d' gypte. 10. Paralus was the name given to the coastal strip between the Bolbitic and Sebennytic mouths of the Nile. Jones (op. cit., p. 347) remarks that it contained no considerable town and was probably sparsely populated; but the high rate of assessment scarcely supports this view. This is the earliest reference both to it and to the Helearchia, the fen land lying to the south of it. Fr. (b) 6. This is the earliest reference to Cleopatris, although, as its name shows, it must have been of Ptolemaic foundation; to judge by the rate of assessment it must have been a place of some importance. For the question whether the 2,25',003 1 denarii are to be regarded as the equivalent of 25 lb. 5 oz. and x grammes of gold, see introduction. '3.

A.D Of this papyrus, broken down the middle along the line of the kollema (on which, however, the scribe did not write) the upper, lower, and left-hand margins are intact; to the right something more than a third of the text is missing. It is written in a fine, official hand showing, as other hands of the period do, the marked influence of the chancery hand. On the verso is part of the travel account. Whether this petition ever reached the imperial chancery may be doubted unless (which seems very unlikely) it was drawn up and signed in duplicate, the prefect of Egypt' keeping one copy and forwarding the second to the Emperor. Our document, which is an original and not a copy, bears no trace of an imperial subscription. The burden of the petition is clear enough: the petitioner claims that on he; land, which had been assessed at 3/4 (or 7/8) of an artaba per iugum (see A. E. R. Boak, Etudes de Papyrologie, II, p. 3 and W. Ensslin in CAH. XI, pp ), she had been taxed at the rate of first two and then three artabas the iugum. The document is dated in the period of the joint reign of Constantine and Licinius when their three children filled the office of Caesar (A.D ); the mistake in the nomenclature of two out of the three children (see note to 1. 3) makes it all but certain that 617 belongs to the first year of this period. I That this petition came from the office of the Praefectus Aegypti rather than from that of the Praeses Herculiae is indicated by its companion piece, 618, a petition from the Archiprophetes of Alexandria.

L Wallace, Taxation in Roman Egypt, p. 44; A. Segre in Byzantion, XVI (1942-3), p. 339). The earliest evidence is that of P.

FRAGMENTARY PETITIONS 618. c. A.D Five fragments of a petition to the Emperors written in a bold slanting hand. The relative position of the first three fragments is determined by the preamble; that of the fourth (which begins in 1. 5) may be regarded as certain, while that of the fifth (also beginning in 1. 5) is dependent on the restoration fl Jycf.il17[S and is not more than possible. The petitioner is the apx"'pocp~7"y]s of Alexandria for whom see 110, I note; the office was probably hereditary (see Uxkull-Gy11enband in BGU. V. 2, pp. 83-4) and the occasion of 618 is most probably a disputed inheritance. Lines 5 and 6 are both inset; L 6 was probably left biank after 7T6A [wv. Verso blank.

At bottom, in second hand flaxwv K; X 22 cm. Of this petition, probably, like those immediately preceding it, addressed to the Emperors, part of the left and lower margins survive; the centre of the papyrus, however, as well as the right-hand portion, has largely disappeared so that in spite of its imposing dimensions only On what is now the righthand edge do any consecutive words snrvive. Further, even where the papyrus survives the surface is often abraded. How much is missing on the right cannot be determined, but there were well over a hundred letters to the line. The subject of the petition was a family quarrel over an inheritance. In the bottom left-hand comer are traces of four letters, all that remain of a Latin subscriptio; xl (perhaps the petitioner's file number) can be read with two incomplete letters above.

As a combination of a genuine private letter and an essay on filial piety it is unique among the papyri. In no other letter' do we find even occasional breathings, accents, and punctuation 2 inserted as though the text was that of a classic poet, while the employment of the iota adscript is significant of the writers' determined archaism. The letter is written in a firm and clear hand, probably by a professional. We have printed it as it stands (apart from word-division), giving only such accents, etc., as appear in the original.

131 I I7 62"7-8. TRAVEL ACCOUNTS I: LISTS AND ACCOUNTS FOR THE OUTWARD JOURNEY For this period oftheophanes' activity, from some time in Phamenoth when he leaves Upper Egypt until his arrival in Antioch on Pachon 7, we have two documents, an incomplete itinerary (628) listing the stages of his journey and a long papyrus with nine columns on each side. This is a rough draft of day to day accounts, not always in chronological order, of the itinerary and of lists of clothing, household equipment, wine, and miscellaneous possessions which both from their presence among the accounts and from their nature (e.g. 1. I 6) are pretty certainly packing lists for his travels. His wardrobe is elaborate and well selected for desert travelling; the number of rare and new words (among which those of Latin origin are conspicuous) suggest that he may hl\.ve been something of a dandy. He travelled as far as Babylon by boat; after that there is no indication of his means of travel nor any mention of supplies for his beasts, presumably because he was travelling by government post. No attempt is made to standardize the grammar of the accounts and lists in which the entries are made indifferently in the accusative, nominative, or genitive cases; misspellings are corrected, particularly where the sense might be affected, but forms in common use at the period (e.g. the termination -t~ for -tov) are not corrected. The verso of the itinerary contains a few notes of the stages of the homeward journey; these are given in their proper place (638) MEMORANDA AND ACCOUNTS 70X2S'3 cm.

'i.e. '(~T"/aov) ; presumably these articles were found to be missing when required for packing P&.K'OV; addendum lexicis. It may be connected with 8p&'aaop.a.t, 8p&.yp.a, perhaps with the meaning hand-towel; alternatively it might be regarded as a diminutive of irregular formation from 8P&.KWV in the sense of scarf (cf. the use of 8P&.KWV = a cross bandage). 18. pwp.a.tkd.; obviously some article of clothing; this is the first instance of this usage. 19. K&'P.7nUTPOV: loin-cloth or girdle, see LSJ., addenda. 21. op."lp'k6v; this sense of the word is new and is interesting as an example of the effect of culture on fashion. We may note in this connexion the revival of such heroic names as Achilles, Meleager, Menelaus (cf. the indexes to P. Flor. and P. Lips.). 33. {lpek,a = {lprf.k,a, breeches, d. {lpek&'ptos for {lpakrf.p,os, cited in LSJ. from an unpublished London papyrus. 34. A diminutive of Krf.;\'Ka (caliga) ; in PSI. VIII. 886 it appears as KaAiy,ov. 36. Addendum lexicis; perhaps a Cross between a cushion and a rug. 38. i.e. UTEyaaTpa, cf. Latin segestrum. 39. i.e. TETpdSEpp.a; for its meaning cf. T. C. Skeat in Classical Review, XLVII a,yp.atvp(os 1) has not occurred before; the termination is puzzling, the meaning may well be sigma shaped. 60. Perhaps ;\,v[ rf.p M ov J should be read here. 63. X"I;\wTd: from an otherwise unknown X"I;\wT6s, either from X"I;\~ (cited from Hesychius in the sense net, plait) or from X"I;\6s, chest. 71. K,{ldptoS (see LSJ., addenda), primarily used of bread of coarse quality (d. Cic. Tusc. 5, 34, 97 and Isid. Orig. s.v.: panis cibarius est qui ad cibum servis datur nee delicatus). In these accounts the word is used in the neuter plural as is Latin oibaria = victuals, rations, and as an adjective to express quality or its absence, cf. Latin vinum cibarium. 72. dyyefov as a measure is used only of liquids. The reference here may be to tubs of salted meat. 74. a,;\a,: we can find no convincing explanation of this word, the reading of which is not in doubt. n Here as elsewhere in the archive the cnidioll is used as a dryas well as a liquid measure.

137 627. MEMORANDA AND ACCOUNTS 8I. Keq,a>"dma: addendum lexicis; heads of vegetables or perhaps leeks, d. Keq,a>"wT6v. 82. {3o.O'1f:v~a = vascula (d.

At this point the memoranda end and the accounts begin; the change is marked by a difference in ink and hand. The new hand is, to begin with, very cursive; thus in liax]'pp is a possible alternative reading. 97. For the u"ao[ov see A. Segre, Metrologia, p. 34; it cannot be regarded as a subdivision of the cnidion. II2. The catholicus was probably Vitalis, d. p.!os. 12I. At the beginning of the line probably TWV corrected from TO'S. In this and the following lines some previous expenses en route from Hermopolis are sandwiched between expenses in Babylon, resumed in For 7T"J>..0( ) d. 642, II note KWT( ): this can hardly = KO-rVA'Y), as such an amount would normally be expressed in sextarii; if it is a measure of which,;"o.oos or.flo.owv is a sub-unit, it must have been pretty capacious Perhaps a-rput"fjtrj vel sim. has fallen out at the beginning of the line For <"<T'Y)S d. Latin secutor; in LS]. the word is only cited from Pindar and Ap. Rhod. It might be regarded as a form of '1)"'Y)-n/s, but the context and general level of orthography make this unlikely: d Perhaps.l[s XP'u]fLa. lsi. See note on 629, UT[{3L, antimony, was used probably for medicinal purposes rather than as a cosmetic. ISS.

Here it is probably used of a semi-precious stone. 16I. <J."ALv addendum lexicis This word is quoted from Dioscorides as meaning antimony, but in this context it is more natural to take it as the diminutive of XaAK'Y)adJv, chalcedony (d. Apoc. xxi. 19) dveflovplos is cited ouly in the sense windmill, (3L{3paa( ) not at all; the lauer may be connected with Latin vibrare. The object may have been some small machine, for example, a kind of fan (3LOVp( ) addendum lexicis, unless BLOvv6s was intended Perhaps for TpaO'td., figs Addendum lexicis Addendum lexicis. 17I. Perhaps = a wig Perhaps connected with the root r.aaalut Jv-roALK(6v): perhaps in the sense prescription Probably should be read here, d Possibly 7Tv{3(ALKo.s) should be read here, but elsewhere the writer's {3 is always of the closed, not the open type This word, which occurs frequently throughout the accounts, is probably not a form of Ka[fLwv but denotes some kind of vegetable and may be connected with the Coptic KafL, reed, rush Perhaps for KaO]oALKoiJ. 202 sqq. To indicate that these entries are out of sequence the writer has ringed them round Lucanicum is used of a particularly large brand of sausage "povdjma is cited only in the plural, but "povw,,[['i' is a more likely reading here than "p6 vdjt9v. The temple would be that of Astarte-Aphrodite Perhaps a gilded statuette of the emperor Askalon was famous in antiquity for its philhellenic sympathies, and was one of the recipients of Herod's benefactions. Till now, however, there has been no evidence that it possessed a theatre and concert hall, although the lauer may be the <pa.,ov of CIG (for games at Askalon see CIG.

138 124 THE ARCHIVE OF THEOPHANES particular form occurs in the Notitiae Episcoporum. We may note that in these lists non-hellenic names are generally treated as indeclinable This form of Rhinocoroura has not occurred before. Boutaphion must be identified with the B7JOa.cpov recorded by Eusebius. Onomasticon, as being the frontier-post between Palestine and Egypt. (The Semitic name means Place of Apples; Eusebius, the only ancient writer to mention the place, states that it is I4 miles from Raphia, which agrees well enough with the L]Y of the papyrus.) The site is now occupied by Bir Gabr Amir (see F. M. Abel in Revue Biblique, XLIX (I940), 227) i.e. Jamnia. This form is peculiar to the papyrus, as is Aovv8a. (Lydda) and (Sarepta) It is interesting to find the old Jewish name instead of Diospolis, the name given to the new settlement after the destruction of the town in the Jewish War T'l]v llia.1"1v, i.e. mutatio. This halt, in the light of 630*,399, can be identified with Bettara, mentioned in Jerome as a mutatio between Antipatris and Caesarea. M. Avi-Yonah in his 'Map of Roman Palestine', p. 24 (Qtly. of Dept. of Antiq. in Palestine, vol. V) shows a roadside station on the site of the village of Tibta (modern et-tayibe). Cf. 638, 17 note The journey as far as Babylon was presumably made by river On Phannouthi I Theophanes was in Babylon and on the IIth in the Athribite; he probably arrived in Babylon from the Antinoite towards the end of Phamenoth (perhaps the 23rd: d I) Perhaps [ 1, &86)Y, 256. The 'new account' begins when he leaves Babylon No place of this name is recorded i.e. Aa.o8tK La. (modern Latiki) This continues the entry of the previous line. 3'2. This is either the 'private account of Theophanes' secretary or else expenditure which Theophanes is not charging to 'expenses' A headland between Tripolis and Botrys, now Ras-es-Shaqqa (see A. H. M. Jones, Cities of the Eastern Roman Provinces, p. 289) The K picks up from LO in Ba.AuvJa.: this form is found in the Antonine Itinerary. The form Ibella for Gebala (now Jebilee or Dsebele) is peculiar to the papyrus: d. 630*, In the ancient geographers this place appears as Hysdata; for once the papyrus has preserved the correct form Or I< A<A)a.p[t'l" 34!.

A fuller version of the itinerary is preserved in draft form and embedded in the preceding text; for comment on and reconstruction of the journey see pp. 105 sq.

For this stay of two and a half months the accounts for Pauni are completely preserved on a single strip of papyrus, the least damaged and most clearly written in the entire archive. It is doubtful whether any part of the accounts for Pachon is extant (see 639, introduction), while the accounts for Epeiph are so entangled with those for the homeward journey that they are given together.

In this entry narpov was originally read in error for <CLTpOV and has found its way into LSJ., s.v. 5. yopws, fine meal, occurs in PSI. IV IO. The 'pure white bread' (for similar uses of KCL8CLp6s see Callari's note in Aegyptus, XIV. 496) is in contrast with the panis cibarius of the slaves (d. 627, 7I note). 19. For the snpplement cf The word, a diminntive from Kd.pVOV (for the form see Sophocles, Lexicon, which gives Kd.po,ov as an incorrect form of Kd.pvov), has not been recorded before. 26. TOUpTCL = iykpvq,ias i!.ptos, i.e. a loaf baked in the ashes, is cited in Sophocles (bnt not in LSJ.) from Erotian; the diminutive has occurred nowhere before. Both derive from the Latin torta. 32. OXaS(iwv) = loxcl3iwv, figs. 44. Meat wonld naturally be salted as soon as bought at this time of year. 63. K6AA7JfLa, a sheet of blank papyrus as distinct from a blank roll (XCLpT~S); the rolls consisted of four (11. 12I, 157) or three (I. 268) sheets. 85. To the left and right of the entries for the sixth day brackets have been drawn; they are, however, included in the weekly and final reckonings and so may have been merely marked off as requiring special attention. 88. {3opi3wv, addendum lexicis: perhaps a diminutive from {3opa, meaning scraps of food, or else the name of some kind of fish. 9I. In JfL'KCL{3,V, followed by a mark of abbreviation which therefore demands a form.fjfl'kcl{3ivos, can be clearly read, but in this line the letter after, cannot be a v. Neither this nor.fjfl'ka{3,ov is recorded in the dictionaries and both should clearly be connected with the Palestinian measure Kd.{30S (see I-Iultsch, M etrologie, p. 416, and LSj., s.v.); for KCL{36v,ov as a measure see LSJ., addenda. The Kd.{30S was equivalent to four sextarii; it was not employed in Egypt, but is fonnd naturally enough here. IOI. Used for aq,p6v<tpov here and elsewhere in this account; it would be used for soap as V{TpOV was, or perhaps as a water-softener There is a mistake in the addition, as is not infrequent; the total should be 3,800, not 3, apfl<i.vwv and apflev'k6v (e.g , 329) appear to be used indifferently in this account; both should be equated with apflev'clk6v, apricot.(d. I. 290, where they are mentioned together with damsons).

I. 91 note) No snch name is known to the papyri; it is probably Latin in origin This diminutive from ClTa VAtVO" carrot, is new to the dictionaries v8p(aKwv): a variant of epi8a" lettuce, which appears in P. Oxy. 1212, 5 as epv8a" while el8pag is known from Hesychius flop'a(ov)-or perhaps flop'>'>'(ov) should be read, as the stroke across the A may indicate another A and not a stroke of abbreviation-presumably a diminutive, hitherto unrecorded, of flopov, mulberry K fl,a: probably not a form of KalfLwv (ef. note on 627, 192) but some kind of vegetable The resolution in this line is far from certain. An alternative would be ClvvXP('ClfLa). In either case the abbreviation is unexpected For Damascus plums ef. Petronins 31. II: Ath. II. 49d-5ob, and on fruit-production in Syria generally F. M.

Alternatively, it may be connected with aa,g, groats of rice wheat; this would snit I. 298 better, but would demand a dative rather than a genitive here Probably a transliteration of solium, stool, rather than of solia i.e. probably = ~mjt'[) rather than J1T T'[) (ef. 627, 146) or fj7i(,ip) T'[)' 365. i.e. conditum sc. orvov, bnt it must have been nasty at this price. 432 f.

147 TRA VEL ACCOUNTS III TRAVEL ACCOUNTS HI: ANTIOCH AND THE RETURN JOURNEY For this period of Theophanes' travels, covering the last fortnight in Antioch, which he left on c. Epeiph 26, and his return journey until Mesore 23, when he is once again in Upper Egypt, there is a somewhat bewildering variety of evidence. For part of this time we possess the fair copy of his accounts in a small, blurred, occasionally difficult hand; for part we have the rough draft; for part we have both, sometimes supplementing, sometimes overlapping, occasionally disagreeing with each other. As far as possible a continuous text in chronological order has been given below with the fair copy as the basis; the text is thus sometimes composite when half a line survives in' draft and the other half in fair copy. Disagreements are recorded in the notes except when they are of no consequence, as e.g. in the addition or omission of T'fJiijS, and the sources for any given part of the text will be found in the righthand margin. The sources are as follows: Fair Copy 630: a small fragment, 4'5X21'1 cm. 631: 71 X 25 cm. 632: 8'3X24'6 cm.; this may have originally belonged to the same roll as : 38 X 25 cm. (verso blank). 634: 3 6X9 6 cm.; this scrap may belong to 631. Only one entry is even nearly complete (I. 12 [aalsbwviwv (8p.) p) and none of the others contains anything out of the usual. Drtift 635: 38'5X25'6 cm., written on the verso of : 22 X 47 cm., on the verso of : two fragments, 33'5X23 and 25'sX23'2, containing a very rough and fragmentary draft on the verso of : 16'5 X 20'7 cm., a sketch of Theophanes' homeward itinerary on the verso of 628.

The draft accounts were clearly incomplete and were added to later. It is of interest that here they are drawn up for a seven-day period instead of for the usual five-day one. On the verso of the fair copy, 632, is written M[ ]EUOp~ (T"A.) '" (8p.) '" i.e. the total expenditure for the month.

Although in the centre of the line the letters are badly blotted, there is not much doubt that Sykaminos (which does not occur in the outward itinerary) was the stage after Ptolemais; in H also the difference is given as 17 miles Bhapov is the mutatio Betkar of Hand 630*, 399 and the &AAay~ of This itinerary stops at the Egyptian frontier MONTHLY ACCOUNTS Fragments of a roll containing on both sides draft accounts of day to day expenditure. As pieced together it consists of two long horizontal strips, each badly damaged by worms, of which the first supplies the upper margin and part of the initial entries of six columns and the second the bottom margin and lower part of eight columns. The middle section of the roll is completely lost and the two strips do not touch at any point. The upper strip measures 47' 5 X 8 8 cm., the lower 57' 5 X 13'2 cm. The period covered in the roll is the month of Pachon, and it is tempting to regard these accounts as filling the gap between 629 and 630*. In favour of doing so (apart from the date itself) is the close similarity in prices, the fact that all the entries can be paralleled from 629 with the single exception of the sausages in ii. 176 and 211, and that EV[ox](eC",) is a more attractive reading in 1. 3, given what we know of Theophanes' movements, than that given in the text. (On grounds of space both are permissible as the writing at this point is so irregular, with occasional wide spacing between letters.) Against this hypothesis must be set the omission of a~y of the characteristic Syrian entries of 629 such as apricots or damsons or wine measured

164 THE ARCHIVE OF THEOPHANES by thekcf,bos, the fact that the account starts on the ninth of the month with the implication that Theophanes' residence in the place mentioned in 1. 3 began then, and the references to the citizens of Panopolis (though these might be explained on the hypothesis of a Panopolitan mission in Antioch). In the absence of decisive evidence the question whether 639 should be classed with the travel accounts or the domestic accounts is best left open.

171 VII. DOCUMENT'S OF THE BYZANTINE PERIOD 652. LETTER FROM THE PRAEFECTUS ANNONAE ALEXANDRIAE Hermopolis 47'2X33 em. Late fourth/fifth century. In this letter, of which two-thirds of each line, to judge from the spacing of the preamble, are probably lost, the praefectus annonae Alexandriae who was responsible for the collection of the annona civica in Egypt and its transportation to Constantinople, transmits to the authorities of Hermopolis a formal receipt discharging them from their obligations. Immediately after the prescript ( ) follows a line which was added after the completion of the document; in this the superior of the praefectus, the Count of the Sacred Consistory in Constantinople (acting, no doubt, through his local representative), countersigned the receipt. Lines 4-9 consist of the receipt itself; then follows a copy of the detailed statements addressed to the praefectus by his subordinates, which form the necessary basis for the receipt. The whole document (to which we know of no parallel) is a good example of the elaborate process of check and countercheck typical of the Byzantine bureaucracy. Probably not less than half of each line is lost. See in general for the annona civica at this period Wilcken, GZ. pp , and A. Segre in Byzantion, XVI (1942-3), p. 395 Small traces of writing on one corner of the verso are probably not connected with the recto text. 0.M <PAaovLO~ t"mip'xo~ " o,ao'')p'-?tato~,f[1tjq.p'xo~ [dvv"h"1~ 'AA.gavOp (a~ 'EPP- V1TOALTOV [ (2nd hand) <pa(aovlo~) 'AP-P-WVLO~ " Aap-1Tp6(TaTO~) K6p'-( ') 'TOV (hlov KOVO"O'TWPLOV io'')p-.lwo'q.!,~// ~ [. 0.J 1} ikoooetq'[ ( t h d) K ' " '\",,..,, 'e '../, 'f, [ 0 IS an ata T')V a1too'tal'to'av 1Tapa O'ov 1TpO~ T')V Tas'V ava'f'opav Y'YVWO'K EtO'Ka'K0p-~ 0' a' o 0 oj ~[. oj Ta q..

A.D. 321 PLATE 5 This text almost certainly belongs to the archive of early fourth-century documents published by P. Jouguet in 191 I as Papyrus de Theadelphie.' In the extant text Theadelphia is not mentioned by name, but the name of the neighbouring Andromachis, the situation disclosed in the proceedings, the plaintiff's own name (he may be identified with the Arion, tesserarius, of several of the Theadelphia papyri) make it all but certain that his origo and that of the papyrus was Theadelphia. In addition to other resemblances we may note that P. Thead. 13, a record of proceedings held before the same praeses at Arsinoe some six months later than the date of 653, offers very close resemblances in form. In our text, the community of Theadelphia, or a group of villagers acting through Arion, accuse the inhabitants of the I The archive was seized by the authorities from the dealer who had acquired it (see Jouguet in Archiv III. 339); this text he must have managed to conceal or perhaps had already sold. I know of no other documents certainly belonging to the archive, apart perhaps from 659.

173 653. JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS BEFORE A PRAESES 159 neighbouring Andromachis before Q. Iper, the praeses, of interfering with and blocking the canal on which the life of Theade1phia depends and of reducing the village to a state of desolation. The claim appears to be made that only three inhabitants or taxpayers are left (though if Arion is one of the three and not merely their representative it is a different triad of survivors who plead the same case against different neighbours through an advocate in P. Thead. 16), and in the person of their advocate they conclude their case by offering to resign forthwith their land on the plain in question (where their opponents own a mere twenty arourae) provided their opponents take over their financial responsibilities together with the water and the land.' Several of the Theadelphia papyri witness to the desperate position of the village in these years (in which no doubt it was typical of many of the communities lying high on the desert fringe); but P. Thead. 20 may stand in a particularly close relation to 653. In a petition to a praeses whose name is lost, the same Arion with two other villagers appeals to a previous decision whereby the inspectors of dikes and the praepositus, pagi were ordered, in response to similar complaints, to find out the facts about the watersupply; this may well be one of the two decisions quoted in 653. Palaeographically 653 is of interest as the same hand wrote both the Greek and the Latin in a style that borrows some of the characteristic features of each;2 only the Greek translation of the decisions of the praeses at the end of column ii is in a different hand. Our text is probably a copy of the proceedings made for the plaintiffs and kept in their archives; we may compare P. Thead. 16, a copy of an isolated speech of an advocate retained by the villagers and also concerned with alleged theft of their water. A little more than a third of column i is missing; column ii is intact. The papyrus was folded twenty-four times.

Leontius said: "these survivors and their brothers who keep a watch on us and who possess a mere twenty arourae on the plain are damming up the water and are preventing the water from flowing on to us. It is therefore only right and proper that our opponents should either let us have the water who will gladly take on ourselves the liability for the taxes on the twenty arourae or, of course if they insist on damming up the water, should take over our land; we are prepared to cede it to them forthwith".

On the score of the handwriting this document is to be assigned to the first half of the fourth century. It deals with a case tried before Maximianus, vir perfectissimus, who is styled iuridicus Aegypti, not Alexandreae. This officer cannot be identified with the Iulius Maximianus known to have been iuridicus in A.D. 139/140 (M. Chr. 88; P. Fay. 203; Aegyptus IX. 285). In the surviving portion of the minute Apolinarius, who is perhaps a minor official of the Oxyrhynchite nome, introduces a linen weaver to testify on behalf of his apprentice, the plaintiff in this action. The latter, Paulus, who is actively engaged in the practice of linen-weaving though (probably) the term of his apprenticeship has not been attained, has been forced by certain builders with whom he is in close contact to drop his weaving and learn the building trade. The juridicus rules that the strategus and logistes are to investigate the point of fact, and lays down the principle that if the plaintiff has completely learned his craft and is actively engaged in its practice, he is not to be transferred to another.

For he has with him as fellow worker Paul (present here in court), who is his pupil and has come to him to gain practice in his craft. You too, my master, are well aware that these men, by their own activity, are of no small usefulness to the public services. They contribute much to the anabolicum, and you know all that has to be manufactured by them. But in this pressing need the builders take on themselves to regard these men only as idlers (1). They pass over the builder who benefits from their help, and are bent on doing a great wrong to a man who is a peaceful linen weaver. For they are tearing him away from the craft he has learned, and wish to teach him another, the builders' craft. He has to be guarded in his wife's house so that no violence may be done to him by the builders. He requests the strategus and logistes to attend to his case." 'Maximianus, vir perfectissimus, iuridicus Aegypti, said: "The strategus and the logistes will take care that in regard to these persons' charges, if he has learned this craft and is actively engaged in this trade, he is not to be transferred to another.'" 2.

Though it consists only of the lower part of a column, this fragment is of interest because our evidence for the way in which the radical changes in land tenure occasioned by Dioc1etian's reforms took place in Egypt is none too extensive.' Thus the proportions of private (lo'wttk~) land to public (orjiloa[a)2 are 12,557 to 2,486 arourae, and there are other categories of private land not included under 18,wTLK~. Unfortunately there is nothing to indicate the provenance (though it may be observed that most of the early Byzantine papyri from the Crawford collection come from the Hermopolite nome) or to fix the date. 3 The sixth indiction I It is usefully assembled and discussed by A. Segre in Appendix I to his article 'The Byzantine Colonate' in Traditio, V (1947), pp.!o3 f. 2 This is the latest instance of the use of o7}!,-oola for public land. As Segre points out (op. cit., p. II6, n. 69), in the Byzantine age it is used of land belonging to the cities; it is very unlikely that it carries this meaning here. 3 The fact that both systems of denoting the numbers 1,000-9,000 are used, that of placing a Clest or curl above the letter and that of putting a stroke below, would point to a date near the middle of the century (see H. J. M. Milne -T. C. Skeat, Scribes and Correctors oj the Codex Sinaiticus, pp. 62-4); for an earlier instance, however, of the second prac~ice see 616.

Recto "ou: this word is fully preserved, but what I have given as the first three letters is composed of a series of almost identical strokes (ef. also 1. 2). We should expect ",fyou but this is not really a possible reading. We know that the pagarchy had superseded the toparchy in the Arsinoite by A.D. 308 (see A. E. R. Boak, in Melanges Maspero, II, p. 125: in general Wilcken, GZ., p. 76), but it is not unlikely that elsewhere the old name lingered as did that of strategus. 7. This shows that Segre's statement (op. cit., pp ) that yij 18,6K7,}7os had disappeared at the end of I Preisigke, W B., S.v. vlos, cites no instance earlier than the fourth decade of the fourth century; the attribution of CPR. 42 to the third century is clearly a slip, as the editor (p. 296) places it in the fourth, and there is nothing to establish a more precise date.

178 DOCUMENTS OF THE BYZANTINE PERIOD the third and the beginning ofthe fourth century is too sweeping. It also confirms the editors of P. Princeton III. 134 (Theadelphia: A.D. 322) in reading 18<o(Kr~rov) rather than emending to 18<w(nKoii). 9. There is no trace of ink after the abbreviation we have given as y(lv.)

The reading is certain and the most plausible solution is Bell's, who proposes to read TTarp«!'-wv<a)vfjs, a variant of TTarp<!'-wvaA<os (see P. Ant , 2). The term oija<ak~ yfj is found as late as A.D. 330 (CPR. 19). Verso. 4. Latin v is rendered either by ov or {3; the word here is clearly the same as that in 1. 13, and the peculiar spelling may be attributed to the scribe's hesitation between ov and {3. We can only suggest that the word intended is vindicata, though what terra vindicata is, whether in privatam or a privata, is obscure. The amount is so small that it is probably a relatively unimportant category, perhaps land whose exact status was still sub iudice. If a different spelling of the same word is to be recognized in the line of col. i quoted in the introduction, the land is-contrary to what we should expeet-vindicata a privata DECLARATION OF LAND FOR THE CENSUS Arsinoite nome. 23'9 X25 em. Jan.-Aug. A.D A declaration of land for the census of A.D. 297 made by Aurelius Kamoutis of Arsinoe to lulius Septirnius Sabinus, censitor of the Arsinoite nome. This declaration is an almost exact parallel (including many of the same officers) to those published by A. E. R. Boak in Et. de Pap. II. 8 ff., and Et. de Pap. III. I ff. from the archive of Aurelius Isidorus of Karanis: cf. also P. Thead. 54 and 55 (re-edited by Boak, Et. de Pap. III. IS ff.); W. Chr. 228; P. Cornell 19, 20, and 20 A (= W. Chr. 229); P. Strasbourg 152. The date of our document falls slightly later (between Jan. 1st, when the consuls of A.D. 300 entered office, 1. 1, and 1st Thoth, the start of the new regnal year, 1. r6) than these parallels, and no doubt was made during the tour of the census party to Philoteris, i.e. to that part of the JLEptS of Themistes lying west of Theadelphia. An important piece of new information is the explicit description in l. 7 of the three iuratores who form part of the census party as {3ovAevral: the new census procedure throws an important share of responsibility on the decentralized municipal senates. A few other difficulties still remaining in Boak's republication of P. Thead. 54 and 55 are elucidated by our text. 'T' L7TaTELos " TWV KVPLCJJV ']">{ YJfLruv,[ WVO"'TaVTtOV "Me Kat astjlta'}l?l!

181 657. SWORN DECLARATION I2'SX26 em. Annious, a senator of Arsinoopolis and in charge of the collection of wine for the annona militaris (for the appointment of this officer by the Senate see P. Oxy. 2114), makes a sworn return of the amounts collected to the exactor or, as he still designated here, the strategus. There is no precise parallel to this text to my knowledge; but it closely resembles in form P. Strasb. 45 (a return made by sitologi in A.D. 312); for the significance of the procedure see E. Seidl, Der Eid, II. 66. The papyrus is from a TOfhOS O"vYKoM"lO"'fhOS and traces of a preceding document are visible on the right. The verso was used, probably not much later, for an account of expenditure in solidi and talents rendered' to a landlord (y oiixos). Payments are to individuals for unspecified purposes; among the names are Sambas, Eulogius, and Minnarus. The hand is not unlike that of many of the accounts in the Theophanes archive.

182 168 DOCUMENTS OF THE BYZANTINE PERIOD 'To Gerontius, strategus of the Arsinoite nome from Annious, senator, overseer of the wine supply. I hereby admit swearing by the fortune of our lords the Emperors and Augusti that I have just now collected from the undermentioned from the crop of the - year 17,8 I 6 Italian sextarii of wine, from citizens - Italian sextarii and from residents in the villages 13,170 Italian sextarii, the which I will distribute in full... I take the oath and in reply to the formal question give my assent. (In detail: (names).' 1. This Gerontius is no doubt identical both with the Gerontius strategus of the Arsinoite of S.B (fourth century: undated) and with the Aurelius Gerontius, atp(at~yos) A( ) of P. Amh. 138 (A.D. 326). The identification had already been made by V. Martin (Archiv VI, p. 163), but doubted by H. Henne (Les Strateges, p. 58, n. 2, p. 95) ; now the near coincidence in date between this text and the Amherst papyrus settles the question. 4. The emperors must be Constantine and Licinius; the document was therefore drawn up before the news of the former's victory at Chrysopolis reached Egypt. 7. The symbol after a is puzzling; if it is not an ordinal with an apostrophe to indicate a thousand (it might conceivably be for ~, though it does not resemble the following stigma), it must express a fraction of a myriad. In the latter case, it is probably a variant of the symbol for i. ".OA'T[ Wv. This usefully settles the meaning of KW{-'OIWTO'KWV in 1. 8 and confirms Wilcken's suggestion (GZ. 315, n. 2) that the latter are the residents (KaTO'KOVVT S) in a city or its territory as distinct from the cives. The distinction can hardly be between the inhabitants of the civitas and those of its territorium since in a papyrus quoted by Wilcken (loc. cit.) occurs the phrase KW{-''Y)TWV Kal KW{-,OKaToiKWV. 12. There is no room even for an abbreviated d".6 before ".apaa0{-'.pews; but the space between this line and the One preceding is greater than normal and d".6 vel sim. may have stood there PETITION TO A PREFECT 18'5 X IS cm. Early fourth century. Of this petition some 10 to 15 letters (if the supplements in and 5 are approximately right) are missing from each line of the only surviving column. The petitioner is a praepositus, i.e. almost certainly a praepositus pagi(for these officials see A. E. R. Boak, 'The Praepositus Pagi in Egypt', in Melanges Maspero, II, p. 125) and the ground of complaint seems to have been occasioned by Dioc1etian's reform of the taxation system, and the person complained of, the comarch.

184 170 DOCUMENTS OF THE BYZANTINE PERIOD 'To Sabinianus, the most illustrious praeses of Aegyptus Herculia, from Arion son of Dioscorus from the village of Theadelphia in the Arsinoite nome. Your mightiness has ordered, lord praeses, in accordance with the divine order, that no one should be subjected to undue demands but that each man should meet his own burdens. Now I lived with my wife Irene and begot children by her, and she with her children departed this life. Now the local collectors, in contempt of my meek and unobtrusive character and of my age and childlessness no less are attacking me and wishing to do me violence in respect of my father-in-law's land on the ground that I am not in partnership with him. That is why I pray and beseech your virtue to pity myoid age and the disaster of my children's death that has overtaken me and give instructions most stringent in your reply with the result that with your approval a stop may be put to these local acts of violence that I may be in a position to meet the burdens proper to my land and throughout confess my gratitude to your Genius. Farewell. I Areion have submitted the petition. I, Isidorus, of the same city, have written on his behalf as he claims to be illiterate.' (2nd hand) 'Epeiph 20. The Praepositus of the pagus is well aware from whom taxes should be collected in respect of the sacred revenues of the land. Entry 120, volume I.' 1. Sabinianns is also referred to as the competent praeses by a strategns of the Oxyrhynchite in the following year (P. Oxy ). Taken together the two texts provide additional snpport for A. H. M. Jones's contention (Cities of the Eastern Roman Provinces, p. 480, n. 5I) that Aegyptus Herculia included both the Heptanomia and the Arsinoite. MEpKOVptavijs: this curious mistake for 'HPKovAias also occurs in P. Thead. 20, I (as corrected by Collinet, N auvelle revue de l'histaire du droit, '9'3, 266; his MEpKOVptaVt[ od] should be corrected to -ij[s]). Collinet's snggestion that the Latin h was mistaken for a n and that the word took its present form under the influence of M ercurius is probably correct; we may note that Arion, the petitioner of 659, also had a hand in P. Thead. 20; he is also known from 653 and P. Thead. 3I. 9-IO. Sense and grammar are both confused here. In translating I have treated TijS yijs as a genitive of respect and the clause introduced by VEKEV as giving the ground of the collectors' action, gxovtos being a slip for gxetv. Alternatively TijS yijs (i) might be a genitive of separation after {3"iaaaBat, (ii) might be governed by <VEKEV and the following clause, if we ignored the ToD, regarded as a genitive absolute. 13. OL' 0.0 = WO"TE OLa 7oth-av. I7. The reading given of Isidorus' description of himself is far from certain. The initial a and the 7ToA are clear enough; but what I have regarded as the abbreviation mark of "no is an unusually large hook and the T is not of the shape the writer usually makes DEMAND FOR PAYMENT "3'7 X 7'4 cm. A.D It is impossible to determine the exact nature of this document in its present state, but it appears to be a demand for payment (or repayment) of moneys from the State. There are, however, two matters of interest: first, the deduction of I,900 denarii from a total of 29,137 for p07t~ (cash payment), which anticipates by two centuries the earliest example of this practice in the Egyptian documents;' and secondly, the means used to represent the numbers 1,000-9,000. In 1. 4 a hook or curl is placed above and linked to the a, the normal method until about the middle of the fourth century (see H. J. M. Milne and T. C. Skeat, Scribes and Correctors oj the Codex Sinaiticus, pp. 62-:4 and note to 616, Pro (a) ii. 4); but in and 5 I A yet earlier example has recently occurred in P. Ant. 39, II (A.D ).

185 660. DEMAND FOR PAYMENT its place is taken by independent and different symbols of letter size, the latter of which is practically indistinguishable from the symbol for 90; that their function is to indicate the thousand is proved by the arithmetic. ~ ap'[.

The rate of deduction is constant at just under 5 per cent. of the total.
