P.Oxy. LVI 3856

Private Letter: to Ammonius and Myrismus

ed. M. G. Sirivianou

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

"This is a business note ... The writer asks the recipients, Ammonius and Myrismus, to finish the work on the bath and return at once"

The baths may well be public amenities, but the letter also tells Ammonius and Myrismus to 'bring the mustard ... and the rest of the fifty ceramia (jars)'. The editor sugests that the letter may be mixing private with state business.
