The Affairs of the Lesonis in Roman Tebtunis and Two More Receipts Related to the Temple

Abstract [en]

The two papyri edited here, P.Tebt.Suppl. 1432 and PSI inv. D 106, augment the modest corpus of Roman-period Demotic receipts from Tebtunis. The texts can be classified as records of payments for the διδραχµία (Σούχου), a tax levied on the transfer of property which benefitted the coffers of the temple. This impost is attested from the second century BC until the second century AD and seems by and large to be confined to the Fayum, though similar taxes are known from other parts of Egypt. The office of the “lesonis” and the temple's economic role are also discussed.
