P.Oxy. XLIX 3463

Application for the Ephebate

ed. J. E. G. Whitehorne

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Heracleides, an Alexandrian citizen presumably resident in Oxyrhynchus, writes concerning the admission of his son in absentia to the list of ephebes — the usual route to citizenship of Alexandria during the Roman period. Heracleides' problems are compounded by inadequate paperwork: his son's name does not appear on the right list, and he lacks the documents to prove the young man's status.
