A Contribution to the Revenues of the Crocodile in the Imperial Fayum: The Temple Tax on Property Transfer Revisited
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History.
2015 (English)In: Bulletin of The American Society of Papyrologists, ISSN 0003-1186, E-ISSN 0191-8710, Vol. 52, 239-263 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Accepted
Abstract [en]

This article examines a number of receipts issued by the priesthood at Tebtunis, which chiefly concern the 'Temple Tax on Property Transfer', usually referred to as the διδραχμία (Σούχου). These texts are mainly dated to the Roman period and written primarily in Demotic. These texts furnish the foundation for a discussion of the fiscal situation of the temple in the first two centuries AD. Finally, it is suggested that the decline of the economic status of the temple brought about by the Roman annexation of the country may have been less dire than often claimed.
