Cession of land: 1 June, AD 139

/ 72dpi
This document, and the attestation of sale of some other landed property that is drawn up to its right on the same sheet (dated August 139), exemplify the format of routine private property contracts in the second century, although they are not often preserved on this scale.

Re-used on the back (not visible in exhibition but seen here: also available in 72dpi) for an account of fishing revenues (The Oxyrhynchus Papyri vol.XLIX no.3495).
