A Look Inside
Main Description
Verdult, Ph.A. P. Erasmianae II. Parts of the Archive of an Arsinoite Sitologues from the Middle of the second century BC. 1991 P. Erasm. II has two aspects. On the one side it contains a papyrological edition of 36 papyri owned by the Erasmus University (Rotterdam). They all relate to the transportation by ship to Alexandria of taxgrain, 13 of them being loading-orders, the remaining 23 nauklèros-symbola, documents the nauklèroi gave to both the sitologos and the inspector(s) upon taking delivery of and loading the tax-grain. On the other side the juridical relevance of the texts created the opportunity to discuss a number of subjects from a juridical and historical point of view. On the papyrological field P. Erasm. II brought to light a number of interesting data. Compared with the loading-orders and nauklèros-symbola published before, the publication of P. Erasm. II means that the number of such kind of texts is more than doubled.SA 32 (1991), 223 p., 4 pocket maps. Cloth. 21x28 cm. - 84.00 EURO, ISBN: 9050630332
