P.Oxy. XLIX 3482

Cession of Catoecic Land

ed. G. Messeri Savorelli

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

In this contract of the first century BC, a 'Macedonian' cavalryman cedes part of his landholding to a fellow 'Macedonian' in return for past favours. Catoecic land was originally inalienable, but in time it became more acceptable to transfer title in this way.
