P.Oxy. LIV 3765

Summary of Prices Declared; and Declaration of Prices by the Guild of Goldsmiths

ed. R. A. Coles

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

"This text is without parallel in this archive or elsewhere. ... Four fragments combine into a long strip ... and preserve the tops of seven columns. ..."

Using this papyrus as evidence, Dr Coles builds on an article in ZPE 39 (1980) 115 to reconstruct the sequence in which the monthly declarations by guilds were handled in official paperwork. His conclusions are included as an Appendix in the printed volume.
