Summaries
Main Description
The private property of the imperial family (domus divina) is a subject of great importance for the study of the Byzantine Empire. A group of texts from the Oxyrhynchites proves to be a fruitful source for the reconstruction of previously uncertain aspects of the administration and extension of imperial domains. The volume presents for the first time the complete papyrological dossier of the domus divina in the area of Oxyrhynchus, and undertakes an analysis of the administrators' tasks as well as an identification of the estates and their employees.
