P.Oxy. LI 3607

Covering Letter for an Accession Edict

ed. J. R. Rea

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

"The short reign of Gordianus I and II is attested here, for only the third time in the papyri"

3607 is an oblong patch pasted onto the recto of a roll over an "official-looking" land register. The roll has been re-used on the verso for farm accounts which are probably private. It looks as if 3607 must have been glued on to reinforce an already old and damaged roll ready for re-use.
