In this article, a brief overview of the early Roman texts belonging to the private archive of a Theban linen weaver is presented. The contents of the archive, which consists of receipts, is analysed and discussed. The investigation shows that the original possessor of the archive was not only involved in the textile industry but that he also supplemented his income through agriculture. Finally, a previously unpublished Demotic letter-receipt (O. Bodl. Eg. Inscr. 328) pertaining to the weaving business is edited and examined. A brief discussion of a dyeing tax is also included.
