Annual Account of an Estate Steward

ed. J. R. Rea

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Nearly three metres long, this annual account from the rural estates of the wealthy Apion family has only recently been unrolled by Dr Shelagh Jameson. Its twelve columns were drawn up in 565/6 by a steward called Theodorus, who was responsible for seven hamlets, epoikiai. The roll has been re-used on the back for miscellaneous accounts as 3805.
