PREFACE 

The delay, for which I must beg the indulgence of subscribers, in 
the publication of this volume, is chiefly due to the lengthy pre- 
liminaries which were necessary for the production of two of the new 
classical texts, the Meliambi of Cercidas (1O82) and the fragments of 
an anonymous Satyric drama (1083). Those papyri, with 1091-2, are 
derived from the second of the large literary finds made in 1906 
(cf. the Archaeological Report for that year, p. 12), which was at once 
more extensive, more scattered, and in worse condition than the first. 
Before any text from it could be dealt with, some thirty thousand 
pieces of various sizes had to be flattened and examined, a task which 
occupied several weeks of last year. Possibly some further small 
fragments may yet be identified ; but the great bulk of the find, at 
any rate, has now been prepared for sorting and copying ; and that 
serious additions will be made is a contingency not sufficiently probable 
to justify a further postponement. 

In editing the new classical fragments (1082-7) I have once more 
enjoyed the great advantage of the assistance of Professor U. von 
Wilamowitz-Mollendorff, to whom I am deeply indebted, especially 
with regard to 1082 and 1086. Professor U. Wilcken was again kind 
enough to look through the proof-sheets of the non-literary section 
and to contribute a number of valuable comments. Occasional 
suggestions received from other friends are recorded in connexion with 
the texts concerned. To all my helpers, including the Proof-reader of 
the University Press, I here return hearty thanks. 

Another instalment of Oxyrhynchus papyri is designed for the 
next volume, which I hope to issue early in 191 2.

NOTE ON THE METHOD OF PUBLICATION AND 
LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS 

The general method followed in this volume is the same as that in 
Parts I-VII. Of the new literary texts, 1082-3 and 1086-7 are printed in a dual 
form, a literal transcript being accompanied by a reconstruction in modern 
style; 1088-9 are given in modern form only. In the others, and in the 
fragments of extant authors, the originals are reproduced except for division 
of words, capital initials in proper names, expansion of abbreviations, and 
supplements of lacunae. Additions or corrections by the same hand as the 
body of the text are in small thin type, those by a different hand in thick 
type. Non-literary documents are given in modern form with accentua- 
tion and punctuation. Abbreviations and symbols are resolved ; additions 
and corrections are usually incorporated in the text and their occurrence is 
recorded in the critical apparatus, where also faults of orthography, &c., are 
corrected if they seemed likely to give rise to any difficulty. Iota adscript has 
been printed when so written, otherwise iota subscript is employed. Square 
brackets [ ] indicate a lacuna, round brackets ( ) the resolution of a symbol or 
abbreviation, angular brackets < ) a mistaken omission in the original, braces 
{ } a superfluous letter or letters, double square brackets [[ ]] a deletion in the 
original. Dots placed within brackets represent the approximate number of 
letters lost or deleted ; dots outside brackets indicate mutilated or otherwise 
illegible letters. Letters with dots underneath them are to be considered 
doubtful. Heavy Arabic numerals refer to the texts of the Oxyrhynchus papyri 
in this volume and in Parts I-VII, ordinary numerals to lines, small Roman 
numerals to columns. 

The abbreviations used in referring to papyrological publications are 
practically those adopted in the Archiv fiir Papyvusforschung, viz. : —

I. THEOLOGICAL FRAGMENTS. 



1073. Old Latin Version of Genesis v-vi. 

17x5-4 cm. Fourth century. Plate VI (verso). 

A small fragment from Egypt of the Bible in the Vulgate has recently- 
made its appearance at Aberdeen (Winstedt, Class. Quarterly, J 907, p. 366), and 
Oxyrhynchus now contributes the following specimen of the Old Latin version, 
a specimen which is not only more extensive but of much greater value, since 
the Old Latin is imperfectly known and the present text is for about half its 
contents the sole authority. It is written on a portion of a vellum leaf from 
a book in a well-formed uncial hand, which is probably not later than the fourth 
century. The ink is of a reddish-brown colour. As is common in early Latin 
MSS., the columns, of which there were no doubt two on each page, are narrow. 
Rulings were lightly made with a hard point. The text was divided up into 
rather short paragraphs, of which the first lines were made to protrude slightly 
into the left margin and are further rendered conspicuous by enlarged initial 
letters. A medial stop is occasionally employed, and points in the same 
position are placed before and after numerals ; the first of the pair of points is, 
however, omitted when the numeral stands at the beginning of the line, and the 
second when at the end. It may be also noted that when representing a figure 
d has the minuscule not the uncial form. Contractions and abbreviations were 
sparingly used, m at the end of a line is sometimes denoted by an over- 
written horizontal stroke with a dot beneath it ; since the regular purpose of 
this dot was to distinguish m from «, it may be inferred that η in the same 
position was also represented by the horizontal stroke, though no actual 
example is preserved, doininus deus appears as dm ds in 1. 31. Traube con- 
sidered the former of these contractions to be not older than the fifth century 

Β 



THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 



{Nomina Sacra, p. 167), but pending fuller evidence the script is a better criterion 
of the date of this codex than the occurrence of a particular compendium. 

Textually the fragment is of considerable interest. As has been already 
stated, several of the verses here preserved are not otherwise extant in the Old 
Latin version, though since they tend to follow a definite formula they could to 
some extent be correctly reconstructed. Others among them were already 
known from patristic citations, with which, however, the new witness does not 
always coincide. Minor divergences may easily be attributed to inexact 
quotation ; but some of the peculiar readings of this manuscript point rather to 
a different recension, of which a prominent characteristic may have been its 
closeness to the Greek ; cf. 11. 38-30 and the note. A variant noted by 
Augustine makes its appearance in 1. 46. Sp\eciosae in 1. 48, in the light of 
a comment by the same Father (cf. note ad loc), looks very like an interpolated 
gloss.

I. This verse is preserved in Jerome, Quaest. Hebr. in Gen. 313, where septingenti anni 
is written; cf. 11. 12-14, note. 

3-6. Verse 5 is not extant elsewhere. For Adae cf. e. g. Gen. ii. 16 pracepit Dominus 
Deus Adae (from Augustine). Jerome in verse 4 has dies Adam, annis should be anni. 

6—7 = Augustine, De Civ. Dei, xv. 1 5. Augustine has quinque et ducentos annos, but 
the ablative is attested in verses 3 (Hilary) and 25 (Jerome) and is no doubt correct ; 
cf. 1. 10. 

8-1 1. Verse 7 as far as dcccvii is preserved only here; Augustine, I.e., gives et genuit 
. . .filias. 

12-14 = Augustine, /. c., where duodecim et nongenti anni is given ; cf. note on 1. i. 

15-25. These five verses are not found elsewhere. 

26 sqq. The verse is extant in Jerome, Quaest. Hebr. 314, and part of it in Ambrose, De 
Noe et Area, i. 2 (227 d). The former has iste requiescere nosfaciet, the latter hie faciet nos 
requiescere. It is useless to attempt to decide whether iste or hie stood in our MS. ; ovtos 
is the Greek. 

28-30. Jerome, I.e., has ab operibus nostris, Ambrose, /. c., omits nostris and continues 

et a tristitia et a terra ; the Greek is άττό των ipyav ημών κα\ άπο των λνττων των χΐίρων ημών. It 

is noteworthy that manu{u)m nos[traru\m, which is absent in Ambrose's version, appears in 
our MS. as the equivalent of των χίφών ημών, and that the preceding word is not tristitia. 
What replaced tristitia is, however, doubtful. In 1. 28 either ab o'\per\ib\is or a ld\bor\ib\us 
can be read, but the former seems preferable both in itself and on account of the patristic 
evidence. If a ld\bor[ib'\us were substituted, operibus would be available for the next line (cf. 
the Vulgate ab operibus et laboribus manuum nostrarum, and "^us is a possible reading ; but 
it is unconvincing, and ^tiis is really more suitable. tristi\liis would be a literal rendering 
of των λνπων ; the difficulty is that [et tristi\tiis is a longer supplement than is expected in 
the lacuna. Perhaps tristiis was written, by a lipography ; but i and / are both narrow 
letters and on the Avhole the reading suggested seems to be the least objectionable, though 
it is adopted with no great confidence. At the end of 1. 29 os was written as a monogram,

1074. Exodus xxxi, xxxii. 

2-7 X 5-1 cm. Third century. Plate I (recto). 

The following fragment of the book of Exodus in the version of the 
Septuagint is of insignificant size but is probably older than any of the known 
MSS. of that book, with the possible exception of 1075, which is of about the 
saiTie period. 1074 is written in a neat round hand, displaying some tendency 
towards cursive forms, among which the κ is the most pronounced. This hand 
could not be referred to a time later than the reign of Diocletian, and might well 
be placed quite at the beginning of the third century or even earlier. The 
fragment may thus be reckoned with 1, 2, 208, and 656 as one of the most 
ancient examples of the papyrus codex that have been preserved. A high stop 
is the only lectional sign occurring. 

The character of the text cannot be gauged from so small a sample. 
Agreements with AM against Β are noticeable in 11. 2 and 7.

1075. Exodus xl. 

15-1 X 9-8 cm. Third century. Plate I. 

This fragment containing the conclusion of the book of Exodus is, like 
1074, remarkable for its early date. The MS. was in the form of a roll, not 
a book, and the sloping uncial hand does not seem to be later than the third 
century. Ν is sometimes given the cursive form with a nearly horizontal cross- 
bar. A stop in the high position apparently occurs in 1. 8. Kvpios is abbreviated 
in the usual way, but not vioi (1. 15) or ΊσραήΚ (II, 15, 2i). On the verso is 1079, 
which may itself have been written in the third century. 

The text, which is of a * mixed ^ type, is of some interest. It shows an 
agreement with BG against AFM in 1. i, but on the other hand two agreements 
with AFGM against Β in 11. 13-14 and 18. In 1. 4 ώ? b4 we obtain very ancient 
testimony to a reading otherwise dependent on mediaeval authority (cf. e.g. 656, 
847, 1007, and 1078). A new variant is found in 1. 10.

1076. New Recension of Tobit ii. 

95 X 1 3*9 cm. Sixth century. 

A fragment of the book of Tobit, in a text not otherwise extant. Of the 
Greek version of this popular apocryphon there are two main texts, the one 
represented by the Vatican and Alexandrine codices (BA), the other by the 
codex Sinaiticus (ϊ^), the latter being the longer, though this greater length is 
due more to verbosity of style than to the incorporation of fresh matter. On 



1076. THEOLOGICAL FRAGMENTS 7. 

the question which is the earlier critics are still divided. Besides these two, 
however, for chaps, vi. 9 — xiii. 8, there is found in three cursives a third Greek 
recension, which may be said to occupy an intermediate position between BA 
and fc^ ; from chap, viii onwards this text agrees closely with the Syriac. 

Now the present fragment from the second chapter is clearly to be dis- 
tinguished from BA on the one hand and t^ on the other ; the obvious question 
then arises, Can it belong to the third recension partially preserved in the 
cursives (C) ? This view appears to be highly probable. The relation of 1076 
and C to BA and i^ respectively is closely similar. Both 1076 and C belong to 
the t^ type, but are more concise, while at the same time they occasionally add 
points of their own. In ii. 3, for instance, the elaborate forms of address in i^ 
disappear in 1076, just as in vi. 11 they are omitted in C (cf. note on 1. 15). On 
the other hand, the insertion of καί α•η<άλζσζν ττάντα τά νττάρχοντα αυτοϋ in 1076 
32-5 (ϋ. 8) has parallels in C, e.g. in vi. 15 the addition of άττό του τιν^νματο^ τον 
ακαθάρτου and φί\ά αυτήν. These like characteristics strongly suggest a common 
origin ; and corroborative evidence for this theory is supplied by the Old Latin 
version. A peculiarity of that version is that while generally following t^ it 
occasionally reflects C. Thus in vi. 15 ^oc daemonium corresponds to άττό του 
Ίτνζνματοί του ακαθάρτου and diligit earn, to φιλβϊ αυτήν. It therefore seems highly 
significant that just in the same way in ii. 8 the Old Latin alone of the versions 
reproduces the phrase καΐ άττώλζσξν ττάντα τά νττάρχοντα αντοΰ of 1076 with ei 
perdidit substantiam stiam. 

The fragment consists of the lower part of a vellum leaf, on which the text 
was written in two columns in carefully formed, large round uncials, which may 
date from the sixth century. Hands of a similar type on papyrus are shown 
e.g. in Amh. II, Plate 34. One side of the leaf has shrivelled, with the con- 
sequence that the letters are here considerably reduced from their original size. 
The ink is of the brown colour commonly found in the Byzantine period. 
Rulings were made in the usual way with a hard point, which has left a dark 
mark upon the surface. Punctuation was eff'ected by dots in the medial position, 
accompanied by a short blank space ; in 1. 30 the dot was omitted or has 
disappeared. A new section is indicated , by a marginal sign at 1. 11. Small 
curved marks resembling circumflex accents do duty for rough breathings 
(11. 5, Ί,ι) as well as diaereses (11. 34, 36).

in Cod. Par. Reg. 3654, but are omitted in the St. Germain MS. and by Lucifer of Calaris 
who quotes the passage. 

7-9. €< . . . -πτΰίχαίν : Dr. Charles informs me that the Aethiopic (Dillmann, Vet. Test.

II. For the marginal sign marking a new paragraph or section cf e.g. 851. i, 
1011. 233. 

15. Cf. the passage in vi. 11, where the similar verbiage of t^ Xeyet 'Ραφαήλ τώ τται8αρίω 

Ύωβ(ία ά8€λφ€. . και einev αντω Ιδού Εγώ. κα\ fhev αντω is altogether Omitted in C, which simply 
has einev δ ayyeXoy. Even Β is there fuller, ttnev 6 ayyeXof τω παώαρΊω Αδόλφε . . . ; it will be 

noticed that in the present verse also Β retains the vocative uanp, which 1076 discards. 

26. Dr. Charles points out that this resolution of an infinitive into a finite verb (cf. t^ 
βάψω) is a common Hebraism and may be taken as a sign of translation from a Hebrew or 
Aramaic original. Noldeke, in Monatsb. d. K. Akad. d. Wissensch. z. Berlin, 1879, pp. 45sqq., 
maintained that the original language was Greek, but there are not a few arguments on the 
other side ; .see the evidence adduced by Marshall in Hastings, Diet, of the Bible, iv. p. 788.

1077. Amulet: St. Matthew's Gospel iv. 



6X11-1 cm. 



Sixth century. Plate I. 



This curious relic contains verses 23-4 (both, but especially the latter, 
reduced by omissions) of the fourth chapter of St. Matthew, written out most 
probably as an amulet. Verse 23 'And Jesus went about all Galilee', &c,,is 
preceded by the title * The gospel of healing according to Matthew ' ; cf. Berliner 
Klassikertexte, VI. vii. i. 17-20, where this same twenty-third verse is incor- 
porated in an amulet containing the opening words of the four gospels besides 
other biblical citations, and 1151. In the present case the words are inscribed on 
an oblong piece of thin vellum in five columns, and are so arranged as to assume 
the form of a series of small crosses, which in the first and last column are 
emphasized by a surrounding border. Each column contains three such crosses 
except the central one, where in the place of the second cross a human bust has 
been roughly drawn. A further attempt at ornament has been made by cutting 
out small rectangles between the columns and by notching the edges in such 
a way that the spaces on which the crosses stand are given on octagonal shape. 
The disposition is not quite symmetrical, for the first cross has a line more 
and the last a line less than the others. The date may be as late as the sixth 
century.

1078. Epistle to the Hebrews ix. 

14-2 X 8-4 cm. Fourth century. 

Part of a leaf from a papyrus book, containing a few verses from the ninth 
chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews. Only five lines are missing between the 
end of one page and the beginning of the next, whence the height of the inscribed 
surface can be estimated at about 19 cm., and it is clear that the leaf was nearly 
square in shape. The hand is of the same type as 850 (Part VI, Plate i : fourth 
century ?) ; the letters in 1078 are larger and coarser, but in formation so closely 
resemble those of 850 that it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the two 
texts are the work of the same scribe. A mark of elision occurs in 1. a and the 
same sign is used after a final ^ ; there is also one instance of a rough breathing 
(1. 15). But the chief feature of interest is the system of punctuation by means 
of double dots, which had already been found in 657, another early papyrus of 
this Epistle, and was believed by Blass to confirm his view of the metrical 
structure of the work ; cf. Lii. ZetitralbL, 1904, 938. In the two places where 
the colon is preserved it stands at the end of a verse, but there is some reason 
to think that it was not confined to that position; cf. notes on 11. 19 and 21. 
Λ single medial stop is used in 1. 20. So far as can be gathered from these slight 



12 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

remains, the text had less than 657 in common with the Claromontanus (D). 
A notable reading is found in 1. 7, where a variant known from two cursives 
has apparently been interlineated.

7. In the insertion above the line is probably to be recognized the variant found in the 
cursives 14 and 17 πολλω. It may be due to the same hand as the body of the text; 
whether the σ of ττοσω Avas cancelled or not cannot be certainly determined. But the 
decipherment is doubtful, the first supposed λ being of a curiously rounded shape. 

8. αιων]ιον (Bt^*ADcE) suits the space better than αγ\.ου (i-^cD*). 

10. It is of course impossible to say whether the papyrus had ημών (AD*) or νμων 
(«DcE). 

15. Tort : or ffOTf, with t<i°ADcE. 

16. Evidently 8ιαθηκη did not follow προ^τη as in D*E*. 

18. τον (so ^ίcACD : om. i^*DcE) is required before νομον in order to fill up the 
lacuna, unless τη: be inserted before ΐντολης, as in D*, with which MS. the papyrus shows 
no tendency to agree. 

19. The colon after λαω is conjectural, but without it the supplement is rather shorter 
than would be expected from a comparison of the preceding and following lines; cf. 1. 21, 
note. 

20. t^cKL omit και των τράγων, and SO Blass. 

21. A colon after ν]'τσ[ωπον is again desirable to fill the space. I had already inserted 
it both here and in 1. 19 before noticing that Blass makes a metrical division at υσσώηου and

1079. Revelation i. 

151 X 9-8 cm. Late third or fourth century. 

The verso of the roll containing the book of Exodus (1075) was utilized for 
a copy of the Apocalypse, the writing travelling in the contrary direction, and 
the end of the one work thus coinciding with the commencement of the other. 
The script is a clear, medium-sized cursive, upright and heavily formed, which 
should perhaps be attributed to the fourth rather than to the third century, 
though the latter is not at all impossible. Both a high and medial point were 
used for purposes of punctuation, 'i^aovs Xpiaros is written Trj χβ, a form of 
abbreviation which is unusual in literary texts but is found in inscriptions ; cf. 
Traube, Nomina Sacra, pp. 1 15-16. 0eoi is contracted in the ordinary way, but 
not ττατ^ρ (1. 12). 

Textually the papyrus shows little consistency ; it has, however, two agree- 
ments with the Codex Alexandrinus against the other two chief uncials (11. 11 and 
14), while supporting none of the peculiar variants of Β or t^.

A practically complete leaf from a vellum codex of the Apocalypse. The 
two pages are numbered in the outside upper corner 33 and 34 respectively, 
from which it is clear that the MS. began with the book of Revelation un- 
preceded by another work. Indeed, the dimensions of the leaf would not be well

suited to lengthy matter, unless the script was very small, which is here not 
the case. Books of these miniature proportions, of which other examples are 842, 
1010, 1096, and P. Rylands 38, seem to have been designed for carrying in the 
pocket. The hand is a good-sized upright uncial, fairly regular and having 
a certain amount of ornamental finish ; it may date from the fourth century. 
Marks of elision and a sign of similar form to separate two mutes were added by 
the original scribe ; a rough breathing (if it be a rough breathing) in 1. 12 is due 
to the corrector who has introduced several textual alterations. No stops occur, 
and instead a short blank space marks a pause (11. %, 6, 14, 19). Some of the 
usual contractions appear, ovvo§ among them, though the word is written at 
length in 1. 19. The text is usually in agreement with B, but seems to have 
been rather inaccurately copied ; a substitution of a reading of t^ for that of Β A 
is noticeable in 1. i.

i6 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

1. 16. A sign of the usual form marks the place where the omission occurred; the symbol 
at 1. 15 above κρονω is of a different shape. 

8. μου, which was originally omitted, was inserted by another hand ; the addition is in 
accordance with the MSS. 

9-10. ν€ν(ΐκ.ηκα και κ(καθικα, the reading of the first hand, is not otherwise attested. 

12. The supposed rough breathing over ο is doubtful ; it might be regarded as a kind 
of paragraph-mark to divide ο ΐχων from the previous sentence. 

16. That και, which follows θνραν in B^^ (om. A), stood here is indicated by the character 
of the copyist's error ; the eye would more readily pass from the first θνραν και to eiae^fvaopai 
if the second θνραν was also followed in the archetype by και. Line 1 6 must then have been 
carried some way beyond 1. 15, unless the insertion was continued in a third line which has 
been broken away. 

18. a in αν(ωγμ(νη is by the second hand, and the preceding α and following ν have 
also been retouched ; at the end of the line too there has been some alteration. It looks as 
if the original hand wrote θνραν ανΐωγμινην. Between the tops of the two alphas there 
is a horizontal stroke (by the corrector ?) which seems meaningless, avemy. B, ην€ωγ. i^A. 

19. The last three letters of this line are again due to the corrector, and no trace 
remains of the previous reading. Possibly ώου φωνή had been Avritten, as in i^. 

22. άναβα: SO B^ί ; αναβηθι A. 

23. α : SO Bi^ ; οσα A. 

25. Some vestiges in the margin in front of this line are perhaps to be interpreted as 
κ]αι, which is added before (νθΐως in Ρ (T-R). 

26. Before ιτν{ίνματ)ι there is room for two or three letters. Perhaps τω preceded, but 
there is no other authority for this. 

28. 1. καθήμενος. 

30. (πι τον θρο\νον, which was subsequently inserted above the line, has no support. 



1081. Gnostic Gospel. 

20-3 X 10• 7 cm. Early fourth century. 

This interesting fragment of heretical literature consists of a leaf from 
a papyrus book, copied probably in the earlier decades of the fourth century. 
The bold, slightly inclined script is in its general aspect comparable v^^ith that of 
40e (Part III, Plate i, third cent. (?) ) and 847 (Part VI, Plate 6, fourth cent.), 
and must be referred to approximately the same period. No stops or other 
lectional signs occur. The use of the contraction ττρ for -πατήρ side by side with 
the commoner Έηρ is noticeable. ^eos and Kvpios appear in the ordinary 
compendia, but σωτηρ and perhaps άνθρωττοί (1. 3o) are unabbreviated. 

The lower part of the leaf is broken away, and it is uncertain in what order 
the two pages should be placed. The recto opens with a question addressed by 
the disciples to the Saviour how they were to obtain faith, and the answer is 
made that to those who pass from darkness into the light, the way to faith 



1081. THEOLOGICAL FRAGMENTS 17 

is revealed by the operation of their own consciousness. This is followed by an 
unfortunately mutilated passage in which a distinction is developed between the 
Father {πατήρ) and the Fore-father {-προτάτωρ). In the verso, which is again 
occupied by an address of the Master, it is laid down that the offspring of 
corruption is essentially perishable, while the offspring of incorruption is 
essentially eternal, and that failure to recognize this truth has been the cause of 
error. Such a warning might naturally call forth the question of the disciples, 
how they in contradistinction to those who had been deceived were to find the 
true belief; while the abstruse theology with which the recto concludes might 
well have been continued at considerable length, whereas at the commencement 
of the verso a different subject is under discussion. For these reasons the verso 
has been selected as the prior of the pages, though the arrangement is admittedly 
hypothetical. 

Regarding the circle of ideas represented in this document there is little 
doubt. A claim to superior yv5icn.s underlies 11. 20-30 ; and the words σ\<ύτηρ, 
αφθαρσία, άττόρροια, hvoia, άγ4ννητο5 are all characteristic of the Gnostic school. 
But the most unambiguous indication is provided by the distinction in 11. ^6 sqq. 
between τΐατήρ and τροττάτωρ, which is embodied in the well-known Valentinian 
and Marcosian theory of Aeons. The Προπάτωρ was the first of the Aeons, the 
primary principle from which all other existence proceeded ; cf. e.g. Iren. 
C. Haer. i. I. I λeyoυσι yap τίνα eivai . . . TeXeioy Αιώνα ττροόντα' τούτον δε και 
(Προαρχην και) Προττάτορα και Βυ^όι; καλοΰσι. The first emanation from the 
ΤΙροτΐάτωρ was NoOy, . . . τον δε Now τούτον καΐ Μονογενή καλονσίν, Πατε'ρα και Άρχην 
των -πάντων: similarly i. 12. 3 oircp (ν^νοηθη ττροβαλύν δ Προττάτωρ τοΰτο ΤΙατηρ 
€κληθη, and i. 11. ι. In chap. 19 Irenaeus specifies certain passages of Scripture 
by which this particular doctrine was supported. He also tells us (i. 11. 5) that 
it took many forms: -ncpl αύτοΰ τοΰ Βυθον (= IIpoTraropos) ττολλαϊ και hia<popoi 
γνωμαί Trap* avTols ] and its precise shape in the present document can hardly be 
gleaned from so mutilated a passage. It appears equally idle to speculate upon 
the identity of the work of which only this tattered leaf has survived. Dr. Carl 
Schmidt, who has endeavoured without success to trace the fragment in the 
Coptic literature of the same class, suggests that it might belong to the imper- 
fectly preserved ' Gospel of Mary ', observing that the expressions σωτηρ and δ 
έχων ωτα κτλ. (cf. 11. 6-8, 27» 35) ^^^ ^^^^ found in that work. But the same 
might be said for example of the Pistis Sophia, and the combination in question 
can scarcely have been rare in the Gnostic writings. That the work from which 
1081 is derived was in the form of a Gospel is, however, sufficiently evident ; and 
probably its revelations were placed, as often in the later apocryphal Gospels, in 
the period after the resurrection. Possibly, as Prof. Swete has suggested, it

comes from the Valentinian ' Gospel of Truth ', which is mentioned by Iren.

as a remnant of that large body of Gnostic literature which Irenaeus describes as 
άμύθιμον νληθος άτΐοκρνφων καΐ νόθων γράφων (op. cit., ί. 2θ. ΐ), and which was still 
further swelled in the third century.

10. προ[ί αυτούς is too much for the lacuna. Perhaps 7Γρο[σω και, which is proposed by 
Swete.

longer supplement before it would be more suitable. There follow the bases of a vertical 
stroke (e. g. t, τ) and of a round letter (e. g. e, o, σ). The restoration suggested pre- 
supposes a direct opposition between αφάνων and φσίΐΌ[μί]ι/ωι» ; but Dr. Bartlet takes 
exception to this, and thinks that something like της πλάνης is required before των φαιν. 

30. αποροια : cf. the απόρροια luminis in Pistis Sophia 134 sqq. 

33-4. The intention of the adscript is not very clear. The words των [α]δ77[λ]ων could 
be inserted in the text after πιστ[£ρ] ; or they may be a marginal indication of the contents of 
the passage. It is not certain that any letters preceded των, but there is a speck of ink over 
the ω, and the margin above is imperfect. r\ φαινόμενη . . . π{ατ)ρ{ο)ς is rather obscure, partly 
owing, perhaps, to the loss of the adjective, α is followed by a straight vertical stroke which 
is consistent with γ, ι, r, or π ; and the letter before ου may be ν or χ instead of κ. α{ωι/]ιου 
cannot be read. Bartlet suggests ay[y€\i]Kov (faith tn the Father ?). 

37-8. πατήρ is similarly abbreviated in e. g. a third-century fragment of Philo at Paris; 
cf. Traube, Nomina Sacra, pp. 56, 96 ; the more usual form πηρ is used below, 1. 46.

20 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 



II. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS. 



1082. Cercidas, Meliambi. 

Height 1 8•2 cm. Second century. Plate II (Frs. 3, 4). 



Cercidas, the philosopher and poet of Megalopolis, has hitherto been 
represented by about a dozen lines gleaned from a few scattered citations. This 
shadowy figure is at length given some substance by the remains here published, 
the authorship of which is established not only by two coincidences with 
fragments already extant, but also by the title surviving at the end of the work. 

This papyrus, like 1083, comes from the second of the large literary finds 
of 1906. It is unfortunately much broken, and the results of repeated efforts 
to fit the pieces together have been rather disappointing. The fifth column, such 
as it is, of Fr. 1 has been built up from several scraps, and probably enough 
other portions of that column remain among the many unplaced fragments, if 
their right position could be found ; but it is to be feared that some connecting 
links are missing. The papyri belonging to this find were scattered over 
a wide area, and possibly further small pieces may eventually make their 
appearance ; but there is no ground for hope of material additions. 

The slightly inclined columns are carefully written in well-formed upright 
uncials which approximate to the oval type, the round letters e, Θ, 0, σ being 
decidedly narrow; α has sometimes a rounded, sometimes an angular loop. 
I should attribute this hand to the second century, a date which also suits the 
cursive marginalia. These consist of both explanatory notes and variants on 
the text, and seem to have been for the most part added by one person, who 
commonly used a rather larger and clearer script for the variants than for the 
other notes. A third hand has perhaps to be postulated for the more straggling 
letters of the adscript at Fr. a. ii. 16. As usual, the scholia include several of 
the common abbreviations, κ for και, %lc. To the first annotator also fall most 
of the alterations in the body of the text, and to him are probably due many of 
the accents, breathings, and other aids to the reader which it is natural to find in 
so difficult a work. Some of them may have been put in by the actual copyist, 
but the subsequent origin of others is seen in the somewhat lighter shade of the 
ink. The system of accentuation resembles that in other papyri of the period, 
e.g. 841 and 862. Unaccented syllables are sometimes marked with a grave 
accent, e.g. Fr. 3. ii. 6 ττίμίλοσαρκοφαγων. Oxytones receive a grave on the 
penultimate, Fr. i. iii. 15 ττατρωοί ; if an enclitic follows the final syllable is 



1082. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 21 

accented, as Fr. i. iv. 6 δοιά ns, Fr. 3. ii. 8-9 ovhiv ττοκα, and the same accent 
may be used in the absence of an enclitic, e. g. Fr. 3. ii. 2 κανθόυς. A curved 
stroke is sometimes drawn under compound words, as in 841 and 852, e.g. Fr. i. 
ii. 18. On the other hand, in several places words are separated by comma- 
like marks at the bottom of the letters, e.g. Fr. i. ii. 17 ; a similar diastole occurs 
in the Bacchylides papyrus xvi. 102, and in later texts, for instance P. Rylands 
10. For punctuation both high and medial dots are employed, the latter 
commonly placed well above the line. 

Of the four principal fragments which have survived, the relative position of 
the first three is undetermined ; the fourth contains the final column of the roll. 
Fr, I is given priority as the most substantial piece. This comprises five columns, 
three of which are in good preservation. They are divided between two poems, 
distinguished by a large marginal coronis (iv. 5). The first is a discussion 
concerning the gods and divine providence. How are the facts of life to be 
reconciled with the view that the so-called gods are at once just and all-power- 
ful ? Zeus the king of Olympus is really impotent. He may hold the scales, as 
Homer says, but he merely registers Fate's decree. Why, if he is the father of 
all, are some of us treated in such a step-fatherly fashion ? The poet professes 
himself unable to answer these questions. Let us leave them, he concludes, to 
the astrologers ; and in opposition to the fictitious gods of heaven he sets up 
as objects of veneration a remarkable triad of earthly divinities, Paean, the god 
of healing, Giving, and Retribution, under the figure of which he commends 
the practical duties of succour for the needy in body or soul, and punishment 
for the doers of evil. Antagonism to the current polytheism was a salient 
feature of the Cynic philosophy. Antisthenes is reported to have said το κατά 
νόμ,ον elvai ττολλους Oeovs, κατά δε φνσιν €va (Philodemus, Ilepl €υσ€β,, p. 72, 
Gomperz), and his contemptuous refusal to make a gift to a priest of Cybele is 
also on record (Clement, Protrept.^ p. 64, Potter ού τρ€φω τψ μητέρα των Oe&v). 
Similar tendencies, in conjunction with a real religious feeling, are traceable in 
his disciple Diogenes (cf. e.g. Diog. Laert. vi. 57), and Cercidas carries on the 
tradition. Bemays {Lucian und die Kyniker, pp. '>JS sqq.) has drawn attention 
to this characteristic as a point of contact between Cynics and Christians ; in 
extolling ' Μίτάδω? ' Cercidas shows himself in harmony with another side of 
Christian doctrine. 

The second poem, of which Col. iv gives the commencement, is on the 
subject of love. It is addressed to a friend named Damonomus, and opens with 
a reference to a passage of Euripides (formerly anonymous ; cf. note on 1. 5), in 
which Cupid is represented as having two kinds of breath, one making the 
course of love smooth, the other stormy. The choice rests with the individual. 



22 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

who is counselled to prefer the gentle breeze and, aided by temperance, to make 
a safe and easy voyage. Here there is a break, and the following column is 
unfortunately mutilated ; but it contains a few significant verses which advocate 
the simplest and cheapest satisfaction of animal instincts. Cercidas adopts the 
attitude expected in a follower of Diogenes, who decried marriage (Diog. Laert. 
vi. 54, 7a), and described love as the occupation of the idle (id. 51) and a painful 
pursuit of pleasure (id. 6']). Love is again referred to in Fr. 4 ; see below. 

Frs. 3 and 3 differ in appearance from Fr. i in being more worm-eaten, 
especially Fr. 3. In Fr. a there are remains of three columns, all more or less 
damaged. Of the first no more is left than two imperfect marginal adscripts. 
This fragment might be conjectured to form the continuation of Fr. i, the broken 
marginalia referring to Col. v, and Fr. a, Col. ii making the sixth successive, 
column. The subject of the latter is not clear; but so far as they go the 
contents would not be inconsistent with such a combination. Expressions like 
' pain-shunning ' (?), 'shadow-fed races (of men)', 'pleasure-stricken mortals' 
harmonize well enough with the foregoing theme. But this phraseology might 
of course occur in many other contexts, and the fragment more probably comes 
from a different part of the roll. At any rate the edges of the papyrus do not 
join up, and a gap of some centimetres must be supposed. It should also be 
noticed that the hand in Fr. a. ii is slightly larger and less compact than in 
Fr. I. V, and, what is more significant, that there is a junction between two 
selides at the end of this second column, whereas, on the hypothesis of a com- 
bination of Frs. I and a, the junction would be expected to occur at a point 
rather more to the right. At Col. iii. 10, which was within a line or two of the 
end of the column, the poem, whatever it was, is brought to a conclusion. 

No such tentative combination with any of the other main pieces has to be 
considered in the case of Fr. 3. This, comprising one nearly complete column, 
with scanty remnants of those which preceded and followed, is particularly 
interesting, since it is in some degree autobiographical. After a reflection upon 
the tenacity with which men cling to life, the poet speaks of his own indomitable 
spirit, which had shown him the way to all that was best, and of the ardour with 
which he had devoted himself to the pursuit of the Muses. His hair is already 
grey, and the poem must have been written comparatively late in life. It is 
a retrospect of his declining years, and from that standpoint he contemplates 
with satisfaction the path which he had followed. Perhaps it is his farewell 
to poesy. 

Fr. 4 contains the final column, below which is the subscription giving the 
title of the manuscript, ' the Meliambi of Cercidas the Cynic '. The verses here 
are disfigured by small lacunae which at present remain imperfectly filled, and 



1082. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 23 

the subject is not clearly defined. Lines 5 sqq. contain a warning against fretting 
the mind with the endeavour to attain something, but what exactly is meant is 
obscure. A reference follows to Zeno, presumably the philosopher of Citium, 
and a ' Zenonian ' love of man for man is apparently contrasted with an un- 
equally balanced passion. Wilamowitz suggests that these last four lines form 
an independent whole, a little poem or skolion which has been relegated to the 
end of the book. But there is no sign in the margin of a coronis, which marks 
the termination of poems in Frs. i. iv and 3. iii, and which should be partially 
visible opposite 1. 10 ; and in the absence of any such indication the internal 
evidence is hardly cogent enough for the proposed division. The concluding 
reference to love is a point of contact between this fragment and Fr. i. iv-v. 
Can the φόβο^ in 1. 4 be of the same kind as that in Fr. i. v. 15? If so, it 
would be a natural hypothesis that Fr. 4 contains the end of the incomplete 
second poem in Fr. i. So far as the appearance of the papyrus goes, this 
column might even be the immediate successor of Fr. i. ν ; but the broken 
edges do not directly join, and the combination can thus be at best a possibility. 

The remaining smaller fragments call for little notice. Fr. 5 mentions the 
name of Sphaerus, which has an important bearing on the date of Cercidas 
(see p. 26). Fr. 7 coincides with one of the two quotations from our author in 
Stobaeus. 

The metre used in these poems is what is commonly known as dactylo-epitritic. 
This assumes different forms, of which the normal elements are the enhoplius 
- \j \j — yj yj — '^^ and the epitrite - yj —-. It is seen at its simplest in the 
second poem of Fn i, where a large proportion of the lines are Prosodiaci of the 
kind described by Hephaestion, p. 51. 10, as ^γκωμωλογίκον Στησιχόρίων, - ν-- «^ — ο 
,^^i:i_.^_k!| in 1. 16 the epitrite stands first {ττροσο^ακον άττο τροχαίου). 
Monotony is avoided by occasional trochaic rhythms. Greater freedom and 
variety are displayed in the first poem of Fr. i and in Fr. 3, where there is an 
admixture of Adonei {- ^ ^ - ^), with a rare Choriambus (i. iii. 5) or dactylic 
tetrameter (i. ii. 3). An extra syllable, either short or long, is often pre- 
fixed to a verse. Wilamowitz remarks that the nearest parallel to the metrical 
structure of Cercidas is to be found in the Aiiirvov attributed to Philoxenus 
(Bergk, Poet. Lyr. iii. pp. 601 sqq.). This structure has not been brought out 
intelligibly by the writer of the papyrus. Only here and there do the lines 
correspond with the natural cola (e.g. Fr. i. ii. 8 (7), iii. 23(17), iv. 10-1(8-9)). 
For the most part the text is copied in what seems to have been the usual fashion 
with the later dithyrambists, in lines of fairly even length, very much as if it 
were prose. Hence in the reconstruction given below it has been found necessaiy 
to discard the stichometry of the original in favour of a division indicating more 



24 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

clearly the metrical scheme. When, however, owing to mutilation the scheme is 
uncertain, as in Frs. 2 and 4, the arrangement of the papyrus is reproduced. 
Resolution of a long syllable is rare, but is found in a trochee apparently in 
Fr. 4. II and Fr. 32. 3. The shortening of a final vowel or diphthong before 
a following vowel occurs infrequently (Fr. i. ii. 6, Fr. 3. ii. 4, 8, 10, possibly 
Fr. I. iii. 14), hiatus before an original digamma once only (Fr. 3. ii. 2). 

In the matter of dialect also slight confidence can be placed in the 
tradition of the original. Cercidas uses a Doric speech ; but there are degrees 
and varieties of Doric, and it is not very clear which of them is here to be 
recognized. The broad a, naturally, takes the place of the Attic η, verbs in -μι 
have the infinitive in -μ^ν, ημ^ν or eipiey = etyat, and ττόκα, 6κα, οκκα, τάμο9, αί, (μίν, 
τίν^ αμέ, ττοτί, ηί, Xfjs, Ισλό? are other well-defined and characteristic forms. But 
did the poet employ the vowels of the ' stricter ' Doric and write ω for ov and η 
for ei? Here the papyrus is inconsistent. Occasionally ω is given by the 
original scribe as the genitive singular of the second declension (Fr. i. iii. 9 τω, 
v. 17 οβολω, Fr. 3. ii. 19 χρονω), but ov is much more common. In No. 4 of the 
previously extant fragments of Cercidas (see p. 50), Bentley's emendation of 
τταλω . . . bvaeKviTTTiu τρνγί to τταλώ . . . δυσίκνηττω τρνγόί is plausible, though un- 
necessary. Of an original accusative plural in ω? there is no clear instance, but 
in one place ω has been inserted above ov by the second hand (Fr. 3. ii. 3 κανθώ$). 
ουν is constant, and the corrector leaves this untouched (Fr. i. ii. 15, 20, iii. 5, 11, 
22, iv. 18). The question then arises whether uniformity should be obtained by 
eliminating the few instances of ω or the many of ov. It is hard to believe that 
the sporadic ω is not a genuine survival. That ω should have been gradually 
replaced by ov is natural enough, and such weakening of dialectical peculiarities 
in the process of transmission is too common to need illustration. Other instances 
of violation of the dialect are to hand in this papyrus : Fr. i. ii. 5 ei for al first 
hand, Fr. 3. ii. 11 μονσ&ν, perhaps Fr. i. v. 18-19 το]τ{€). The choice between et 
and η in infinitives is more difficult, et is written in ten places by the copyist, 
Fr. I. iii. 8 Xeyeiv, 19 (χαν, iv. 19 ζκλζγαν, 22 fvOvTiXoeLv, Fr. 4. 3 ]μοφλνακ€Ϊν, 7 
7Γ0ΐ€ΐσ[^α6, 8 στρζφζΐν, Fr. 22. 3 opeiv, Fr. ^6. 2 b]aμaζξLv, Fr. 48. 2 ]μα0€ΐζ;, in one of 
which (Fr. i. iii. 19) »? has been interlineated by the second hand ; the solitary ex- 
ample of €ΐμξν = ehaL (Fr. i. v. 19) similarly has this alternative η above the line, 
as in the Paris papyrus of Alcman ii. 11. ημ^ν is perhaps preferable ; and in the 
other cases η may be correct. In Cere. Fr. 2. 3 Bergk following Froben gives 
χηλοί for the traditional χείλος. The natural tendency towards ci, it may be 
observed, would be much assisted by the palaeographical similarity of 6 1 and H, 
which is a frequent cause of corruption. But the infinitival -ην is not very 
common in literary Doric, αν^άνην is found in the Paris Alcman papyrus iii. 20, 



1082. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 25 

ibfjv in 8. 7. The MSS. of Theocritus have κανην in xxiv. 92, and in other 
passages are divided between -eiv and -ην ; θίγην is the reading of the Codex 
Ravennas in Aristoph. Lysist. 1004. In both Aristophanes and Theocritus -etz; 
is commonly preferred by editors, whose example I should be inclined to follow. 
Purity of dialect is certainly not to be expected in poetry of the age of 
Cercidas ; and an instance of the epic genitive -olo (Fr. i. v. 16), which was 
also used by Theocritus (e.g. i. 68, ii. 8, iv. 17-18), betrays artificiality in the 
language. But, while naturally the author himself cannot be credited with all 
the incongruities of the papyrus, the preferable course in a first edition, at any 
rate, is to leave these for the most part as they have been handed down. Similar 
inconsistencies are to be found in plenty in the inscriptions. A notable example 
of the dialectical fusion of this period survives in the poems of Isyllus (C. I. G. 
950), where not even the Doric α is constant. I have accordingly allowed ου to 
stand side by side with ω, and η with et. Where it is not clear from the context 
whether a final ω is genitive or dative, no iota subscript has been added. Of 
specifically Arcadian influence there is no clear trace ; the use of the non-Doric 
av (Fr. I. iii. 9, iv. 8) does not prove it, since av had already been admitted 
by Theocritus in his Doric poems. 

A few words must be added concerning the personality and literary 
qualities of the poet. The former has been a subject of much uncertainty. Two 
politicians of Megalopolis who were named Cercidas are known, one a con- 
temporary of Demosthenes, who accuses him of having betrayed his countrymen 
to Philip {De Cor. 295 ; cf. Harpocrat., Κερκίδα? ... δη δ' οντο^ των τα Μακώονίκα 
φρονούντων ην Λρηκζ κα\ Θεοττομττοί ey le' Φιλιττιτίκών, Polyb. xviii. 14), the other 
a friend of Aratus and an actor in the war with Cleomenes towards the close 
of the next century (Polyb. ii. 48-50, 65). Can either of these personages be 
identical with Cercidas the poet ? If the Grammarians are to be trusted, he too 
played a part in public affairs. Megalopolis, says Stephanus of Byzantium, was 
the city of Cercidas aptaros νομοθ^τηί καΐ μζλιάμβων -ποιητής, νομοθξτηί is also the 
word used by Ptolemy 6 'Ηφαιστίωνος ap. Phot. Bibl 190 (p. 151 Bekker) ό μίντοχ. 
νομοθέτης Άpκάbωv Κερκίδα? σννταφηναι αυτω το α καΐ β της Ίλιάδο? κ€λζύσ€ΐ€ν. 
Probably the same tradition is to be recognized in the statement of Eustath. //. 
B, p. 199 τταρασημβωνται δ€ και 6 Πορφνριοί . . . ιστορων καΐ δη νόμονί Tivh (ξίθεντο, 
ατΐοστοματίζζΐν tovs τταώ^νομένονς τον ^Ομηρου κατάλογον, ώ? καΐ δ Kepbias νομοθζτων 
Trj ττατρίδι. In view of the alleged partiality of Cercidas to the second book of 
the Iliad (cf. his aspiration recorded by Aelian, Far. Hist. xiii. 20, to meet 
Homer after death, and Fr. i. iii. 2 below), Cuper's emendation {Apoih. Horn. 
p. 130) of Κίρδία? to Κ6ρκιδα5 is convincing. Meineke proposed to identify the 
poet with the philo-Macedonian denounced by Demosthenes {Anal. Alex. 



26 ΎΗΕ OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

pp. 385 sqq.) ; but this view did not well accord with the mention in Cere. 
Fr. a (cf. p. 50) of the death of Diogenes, which occurred in B.C. '^2'^ and does 
not seem, when that fragment was written, to have been a quite recent event. 
Stronger objections are now found in two fairly certain allusions of the papyrus, 
one (Fr. 4. 14) to the Stoic Zeno, who is said to have lived as late as the 130th 
Olympiad (Diog. Laert. vii. 6) and cannot have become famous before the 
beginning of the third century, the other to Zeno's disciple Sphaerus (Fr. 5. 4). 
These references bring the poet down well into the third century, while on the 
other hand he cannot be placed very much later, since there is good reason to 
believe that his works were used by Aristophanes of Byzantium, who is sup- 
posed to have succeeded Eratosthenes at the Alexandrian library about B.C. 195. 
As has been pointed out by Strecker {Hermes, xxvi. pp. 276-7), the explanation 
of μαγί'ί citing Cercidas in Phot. Bibl. 279 (Cere. Fr. 8 ; cf. p. 51) is likely to 
be derived from Aristophanes' Hept των νττοτττζυομένων μη άρησθαι rois iraXaiois ; 
cf. Eustath, Od. ξ, p. 1761. 34 ζφη be (sc. Άριστοφάνη5) και on η μαγίί από rrji μάζηί 
η τον μαστξύζΐν βηθζΐσα κτλ., and Pollux vi. 83, χ. 81, To this Wilamowitz adds 
the very plausible suggestion that the citation of Trarpows (Cere. Fr. 9 ; cf p. 51) 
comes from the same grammarian's Uepl συγγενικών ονομάτων. Our author's 
floruit will accordingly fall in the second half of the third century, and it 
becomes natural to identify him with the Megalopolitan Cercidas who appears 
on the political stage at precisely that period. But it will not follow that, as 
Leo inclines to believe {Hermes, xli. p. 444), the statement that he was a νομοθ4τηί 
rests upon a confusion. ' Die Gesetzgebung hangt mit der Griindung (von 
Megalopolis) zusammen.' Not necessarily ; constitutional ordinances are by no 
means limited to the period of a city's foundation, and a well authenticated 
tradition is not so lightly to be set aside. The absence of any hint in 
the narrative of Polybius that he was speaking of the well-known writer 
will hardly be regarded as a serious objection to the proposed identifica- 
tion. That the philosopher-poet, besides being a lawgiver and a practical 
politician, should also have been a general (Polyb. ii. 6^), is more surprising ; 
but evidently he was far removed from the typical Cynic sage, and there is 
no great difficulty in adding some military capacity to his varied accomplish- 
ments. How it comes about that he is described by Diogenes Laertius as 
Μζγαλοττολίτψ η Κρηξ (vi. 76) remains unexplained on any view of the poet's 
personality. S. Bochart wished to remove this complication by the not very 
happy expedient of substituting 'ApKUs for Kprjs. Cronert {Rhein. Mus. Ixii. 
pp. 311-12) proposes the emendation Άρκά? MeyaAoTroXiV?]?, or MeyaXowoXirTjs t^s 
'ApKabCas, but makes no attempt to explain how a phrase of this kind became 
corrupted to η Κρη$. If the passage is to be corrected at all, it would be better 



1082. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 27 

to follow Cobet and delete η KpTjs as an interpolation. But, as Wilampwitz 
remarks, conflicting statements of the same kind occur about other celebrated 
individuals, e.g. Sotades. Perhaps the family had some Cretan connexion. 
There are no independent grounds for supposing Cercidas to have lived else- 
where than at Megalopolis ; and he may reasonably be regarded as a kinsman of 
his namesake the statesman of the Demosthenic period. 

Cercidas is expressly described as a Cynic for the first time in the title at 
the end of Fr. 4. That he was an adherent of that school of philosophy had, 
however, been rightly inferred from the extant fragments 2, 4, 5 (p. 50), and the 
phrase τον €μον Μίγαλοπολίτην KepKibav (Athen. viii. 347 e) in the mouth of the 
Cynic Cynulcus (Kaibel, Athen. iii. p. 561). His wish to meet after death 
Hecataeus and Olympus, as well as Homer and Pythagoras (Aelian, Var. Hist. 
xiii. 30), implies that besides philosophy and poetry, he cultivated history and 
music ; and the comprehensiveness of his intellectual interests is directly witnessed 
by Fr. 3. Nor did he confine himself to one class of poetry, for Athenaeus 
quotes his Iambi (Cere. Fr. i) and that there is no mistake in the name is proved 
by the metre of the quotation. But no doubt it was upon the Meliambi, so 
called as combining lyrical forms with critical or satyrical matter, that his 
literary fame chiefly rested ; to Ptolemaeus, ap. Phot. Bibl. 279, he is simply ό 
μζλοηοωί. No other representative of this class of composition is known to us, 
and to that fact rather than to any conspicuous literary merit the discovery of 
these Oxyrhynchus fragments, from which a fair idea of the poet can now be 
obtained, owes its particular interest. In the matter of style they confirm and 
emphasize the impression given by the few verses already known. An outstanding 
feature is the frequency of unfamiliar compounds, in which Cercidas displays the 
facility and boldness of a dithyrambist. Some of these δίπλα or τριπλά have 
a distinct vigour and aptness : βνποκφδοτόκων, συοττλοντοσύνη, τημ^λοσαρκοφαγ^ΐν, 
φνλα σκι6θρζτΐτα, όλβοθύλακο5 λάρος are among the more striking. The poet clearly 
possessed a feeling for the picturesque, as well as a faculty of expression. His 
versification is accomplished, and the syntax usually simple. The most pleasing 
specimen of his work is the exordium of the poem on love (Fr. i. iii. 5 sqq.) 
which, though the leading idea is not original, has a grace of its own. That 
on the subject of the gods (Fr. i. ii-iii) is not marked by novelty or depth, 
but the points are well put, and reinforced by some happy phrases and lines. 
The fragments of Cercidas reveal a cultivated man, of no great originality, 
perhaps, but well qualified to expound and popularize his philosophic creed, 
and endowed with at least some of the qualities which go to make a poet. 

My debt to Wilamowitz in the reconstruction of this text, as of 1086, is 
especially large.

50 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

It may be convenient to add here the previously known fragments of 
Cercidas, which I transcribe from Bergk, Poetae Lyrici, ii. pp. 513-15. 

Iambi. 
I. Athen. xii. 554 d: 

r\v καλλιπνγωρ ^eOyo? iv ^νρακονσαις. 

Meliambi. 
3. Diog. Laert. vi. 76 :

5 "Π^ Ύ^Ρ ό,λαθύω^ διογ^νης 
Ζανος γόνοί ουράνιος τ€ κύων. 

Ι. ya Bergk; yf Cobet, y ea vulg. 4. This line was bracketed by Cobet. 5. 

dioyfvfjs is placed here instead of at the beginning of 1. 6 by W-M. 

The reference is to the death of Diogenes. The language of this fragment is reflected 

in [Diog.j Epist. 7 Μή ακιώ, £ narrp, δτι κνων Χίγομαι κάί άμπίχομαι τρίβωνα btnXovv κτλ. 

3. Stob. F/or. Iviii. 10 = 1082. Fr. 7. 2-4. 

4. Stob. Flor. iv. 43 : 

πως κ^ν iSoiev 
ταν σοφίαν πίλας ίστακυϊαν άνδρας 
S>v το κίαρ πάλω σ^σακται και δυσ^κνίπτω τρνγί ; 

Ι. The preceding line νους opjj και vois άκουα (= Epicharmus, Fr. 117) is not to be 
assigned to Cercidas. Kfv ΐδοκν Meineke; κ iSoter B, fplBoup \u]g. 2. ανΒρα W— Μ ; 

avfpes vulg. 3. W-M with Bentley would prefer the genitive τταλώ . . . δυσεκνίπτω τρυγάς. 

5. Galen χ. 406 : 

iv κριομνξοις άνδράσιν \€ύδοκιμήσ€Ϊ\. 

The passage is θίσσαΚος be άμα Tois eavTov σοφισταΐς (φ ίψ^ηλοΰ θρόνου καθημΐνος ev κριο- 

μύξοίί άνδράσιν, ώί ό Κ(ρκί8α: φησίν, (νδοκιμήσΐΐ. W-M agrees with Meineke, Anal. Alex. p. 394, 
that £υδοκιμήσίΐ does HOt belong to the quotation, notwithstanding its metrical aptness.

9. Pollux iii. 27 • 

ίπιπατωρ' βίλτιον γαρ τοννομα τον πατρώου, €ΐ και Κερκίδας κίχρηται. 
Cf. Fr. I. ii. 12. 



Fr. 1. i. 12. ]αίΊοψιάδα is probably a variant; cf. e. g. ii. 10 and 20. ^οψιάδψ occurs 
as a proper name, e. g. C. I. G. 169. 

14. For σττυροί, which evidently occurred in the text of the poet, cf. Etym. Magn. 724. 

32 ΉρωΒιανος Xeyti on tovs ττνρούς σττυρονς "Kfyovaiv οί Συρακόσιοι, and Hesych. σπνρονς' nvpovs. 

The word occurs in Paton-Hicks, Inscr. of Cos, 39. 11, CoUilz, Gr. Dialektinschr. 4736 
(Thera), Dittenberger, Sylloge, ed. 2, 938. 23 (Epidaurus). 

ii. i-iii. 17. ' [Why did not Fortune] reduce to penury the . . . and incontinent Xenon, 
and bring us his money that was running to waste? What was to prevent, supposing 
some one should ask her ? For it is easy for a god to accomplish everything whenever it 
comes into his mind, and to empty of his swinish wealth the dirty usurer and hoarder or 
this outpourer and ruin of his substance, and to give the squandered means to the man 
who takes his bite in season and shares his cup with a neighbour. Is then the eye of 
Right blinded like a mole's 1 Does Phaethon see crookedly with a single orb, and is the 

Ε 2 



52 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

vision of fair Justice dimmed ? How can they who have neither hearing nor inlet of sight be 
yet taken for deities ? Nay, the august lightning-compeller sits on mid Olympus holding 
even the balance and in no wise signifies his will. And so said Homer in the Iliad; 
it sinks when the fated day comes to noble men. For why does not he who controls the 
weights, if he is upright, incline them to me, or to Phrygia at the ends of the earth? 
Of a truth I fear to say how perversive is the scale of Zeus with men. To what sort of 
lords, then, or to what children of Heaven can one go to find how he may get his deserts, 
when the son of Cronus, the begetter and parent of us all, is found to be a father to some 
and a stepfather to others? Better to leave these questions to the astrologers, for they, 
I expect, will have no manner of trouble. For us let Paean and Giving be our care, for 
she is a goddess, with Retribution, on earth. While, then, the deity sends a favouring 
breeze, hold her in honour, men, and pursue her . . . and you may then utterly rid your- 
selves of the reprehensible [desire for] wealth and for [the other gifts] of fortune.' 

1 . Ύνχη or some deity is the subject of the sentence, άκρασίων is only found here. 

2. Two short syllables are required between π(ρητ and av, and nem^rvXiSav, although 
palaeographically unconvincing, satisfies that condition and is a tolerable word, πΐνητύλος 
(cf. e. g. μικκυλοί) is, as W(ilamowitz)-M(ollendorfF) remarks, in harmony with the style, 
and the termination -ί8ας recurs in 1. 7 τΐθΐΌκοχαλκίΒας. πίρητ of course would be satis- 
factory, if the problem of the next word could be solved. For the first damaged letter 
it is difficult to read anything but a υ ; a mark of elision followed by an t is much less 
suitable. The second, if not λ, can be δ or a, possibly v. With v, there would be only one 
more letter before av ; with λ, 8, or a, there are probably two, and the slight vestiges seem 
most consistent with ισ, but ώ is, I think, just possible. A κ is hardly admissible. 

The marginal note evidently refers to Xenon, who is not, apparently, otherwise known 
to fame. 

4. {σ)φ' W-M. Tis φ€ρο[ι]Γο gives inferior sense, and is abnormal in syntax. 

6-8. These three opprobrious compounds are all new. The first two go together and 
express the opposite character to that of the intemperate Xenon {τοϋτορ, 1. 9) ; the miser 
makes no better use of his wealth than the spendthrift. τίθνακοχάΚκίΒας is perhaps not 
impossible for such a bold coiner of words as Cercidas ; cf. πάλινΐκχνμίνίτα! in the verse 
below. The idea it expresses is that hoarded wealth is dead and unprofitable. There is 
really very little doubt about the first syllable, and though the vestiges of the supposed κ 
are slight they suit that letter well. The mark of length above the t must in any case be 
erroneous. 

The variant oKedpov inserted in the margin is obviously right. 

9-10. συοπΚοντοσννα, fmraStoTpaiKTas, SLud κοινοκρατήρό&κυφο: are three more Otherwise 
unattested compounds. 

11. The diminutive banawWa is anothel• unfa'milia,r word ; for the form cf. e.g. 
φθίνυλλα, and Fr. 39. 7. 

12. The marginal note gives a definition of σπάΚαξ, from which the novel άποσπαΚεχοϋν 
is formed. For AUas οφθαλμό: cf. Soph. Fr. 11, Dionys. Fr. 5, Fr. Adesp. 421 Nauck, &c. 

13-14. W-M observes that the introduction of Phaethon, i.e. Helios, between Αίκα 
and ©e/its is not unnatural, the sun as all-seeing being regarded as the avenger of the innocent ; 
hence the practice of calling the sun to witness, λιπαρά is Hesiod's epithet of θίμκ, 
Theog. 901. napavyup and καταχΧνονρ, which are found here only, are glossed in the adscripts. 
The form avyelv occurs in Job xxix. 3 ; cf. Hesych. ανγώ• ανγάζομαι. 

15. The marginal variant, with the slight alteration of roi for oi, is no doubt right. 
ovToi Toi would be unmetrical. 6πάρ here refers especially to the sense of vision. 



1083. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 53 

i6-iii. 3. The complaint here seems to be that Zeus does not actively intervene in the 
interests of right. He only holds the balance and observes its indications ; the weights 
are determined by Fate. Cf. Iliad θ 70-2 iv δ' eV/^it δυο κηρ^ . . . ΐ\κΐ be μίσσα λαβών' pene 
δ' αΐσιμον ημαρ ' Αχαιών. As an alternative to the supplements adopted G. Murray proposes 
[€χων\ ορθόν \κα6'ιζ(ΐ, which is a more difficult order, though not more involved than e.g. 
Aristoph. Thesm. 811. He would also prefer to read δ σεμνός . . . [καθίζει, . . . ου8αμη, κα\ 

τοΰθ' . . . Ίλιάδι ρίπΐΐυη, όταν αΐσιμον ημαρ, άν8ράσι κν8αλίμοισ(ι)ν. But doeS Homer Say this ? 

5, βρυγια is more likely to have been altered to φρνγια than vice versa ; the shortening 
of the V, which is long in Apoll. Rhod. iv. 330 ΒρυγηίΒα!, 470 Βρνγοί, Scymnus 433 Bpvyoi, 
occasions little difficulty ; cf. Bpiyes- Sufficient regularity is restored to the metre by the 
transposition suggested by W— M. έσχατα Μνσων Βρυγία is a variation of the common 
proverb Μνσων ΐσχατος to indicate an insignificant or unknown person ; cf. e. g. Plato, 

TheaetetUS 209 b αντη ovv η 8ιάνοια eaff on μάλλον ποιησ(ΐ μ( θΐοίτητον η θίόδωρον 8ιανοΰσθαι^ η των 
λίγομίνων Μνσων τον (σχατον ; οη which the Scholiast remarks eVt των ΐντ(λ€στάτων. Μάγνηί Ποα- 
στρία' ονκ εστίν ovbe)s οΰδ* 6 Μνσων ΐσχατος' καϊ Mivavbpos 'Αν8ρογννω' Μνσων ΐσχατος ηολΐμιος. 

The poet would have justice rewarded even in the most obscure and humble of men. This 
seems a more suitable interpretation than to make the 8e adversative ' but inclines them 
instead to . . .' 

An erroneous accent on the first syllable of έσχατα has been cancelled by the dots 
placed on either side of it; cf. 841. vi. 88 and ix. 17, where we wrongly supposed the two 
accents to be alternatives. 

6. [napajyei W-M ; the letter after the lacuna could equally well be r. airoh refers not 
to Μνσων but Vaguely to people in general•. 

9-10. evpoi, as emended by the corrector, is evidently right, and λάβοι would naturally 

follow, as e. g. in Plato, Cri'f. 45 b ονκ αν εχοα εξελθων δ τι χρωο σαντω. 

12. ττατρωός '. cf. Pollux iii. 27 επιπάτωρ' βίλτιον γαρ τοννομα τον πατρωον, ei κα\ Κερκίδας 

κίχρηται (= Cerc. Fr. 9)• The allusion may well be to the present passage. 

13. μετεωροκόίΓΟίς : cf. AristOph. PaX 92 ττοΐ 8ητ άλλως μ(Τΐωροκοιτύς ; The Substantive 

is found only here. For this sarcastic allusion cf. Diog. Laert. vi, 24 eXeye he {sc. Αιογίνης') 

και ώς δτε μεν Iboi . , . ονεψοκρΊτας και μάντεις και τονς προσέχοντας τούτοις . . . ονδεν ματαιότερον 
νομίζειν άνθρώπον. 

1 4• ov(pe) εν is restored by W-M on metrical grounds ; ελπομαι ονθεν (Murray) is an 
alternative remedy. The corrector's εχψ may be the original form; cf. introd. p. 24.. 

15. μεταώως, as W-M points out, is probably for Μίτάδω?, a substantive formeid from 
μεταδώόναι on the analogy of δώί in Hesiod's δώί ά-γαθή (Opera 354), to which passage the 
adscTript of the papyrus refers. Αιδώϊ has no doubt some speciousness in view of the passage 
in Hesiodj Opera 197-200, where Αίδώϊ and Νί/χεσ»? are described as leaving the earth for 
Olympus. Cercidas might be held to be directly controverting that statement : Hesiod was 
wrong; they are still on earth {κατά γαν, 1. 1 6), and are the true divinities. But, besides 
metrical difficulties, the objection to this is that the marginal note becomes quite irrelevant 
and must be supposed to be a mistake. The corruption to αώως, on the other hand, would 
be easy, apart from the possible influence on the copyist of Hesiod*s conjunction of Αΐδώς 
and Νεμεσις. W-M seems also right in regarding αγαθά as an interpolation from the verse 
of Hesiod cited here by the annotator. With Θε6ς γαρ αντα in the following verse the 
epithet is otiose, and its removal leaves the metre normal. If άγηθά is retained, it must be 
scanned as an anapaest, καί being elided before the following short vowel, which would be 
in accordance with the later practice. Murray, keeping Αίδώ?, proposes the transposition 

και μετ Αιδώ; αγαθά. 

The inclusion of Paean among these deities is noteworthy, though hardly surprising ; 



54 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

both Antisthenes (Diog. Laert. vi. 6) and Diogenes (Stob. xiii. 25) are reported to have 
compared their office to that of doctors, and Bernays remarks on the fact that Diogenes, 
who spared few, seems to have respected medical men {Lucian und die Cyniker, p. 95 ; 
of. Diog. Laert. vi. 24}. Perhaps, as W-M thinks, Νβμίσΐί here has a wider meaning than 
retribution, and is rather the principle of ius suuni cui'que ; cf. Arist. De Mundo 7 Ne/ieCTti* 5e 
απο τψ έκάστω 8ιανΐμησ(ως, and the similar explanation of Cornutus, Na/. Dear. 13. There 
seems, however, to be no parallel for the actual use of νίμΐσις in this sense. 

17. Tt/iSrc: strictly the dialect requires n/x^rf, but this need hardly be pressed. 

iv. 1-4. The supplements adopted are for the most part due to W— M. μ(\ταΐξαντ€ς is 
to be taken with τιματ€, the circumflex accent, which is inconsistent with the diaeresis, being 
erroneous. A complementary clause, specifying the contrasted objects of aversion, followed; 

ζηΚον νιμΐσητον ολβον και πάντων των άπο τνχας is the paraphrase suggested by W— Μ. -σητον 

could be the termination of e.g. μισητόν, but νΐμ^σψόν is recommended by NeVe^is in 1. 16. 
*[στίι/ is also doubtful, and ([ΐπον, alluding to an injunction given earlier in the poem, is 
a possible alternative ; ([νκτόν is rather too long for the space. Owing to the mutilated 
condition of the text, the correct division of these concluding lines remains uncertain, μεσφ' 
ovv . . . φυσια'ίΐ and τιμάτε . . . ελα[ν^ v^— maybe separate verses, and ταίτ' . . . e^e/icVat another 
in the same rhythm. 

5-18. 'It has been said, Damonomus — you are not devoid of knowledge — that the 
dark-winged son of Aphrodite blows on us from his mouth two kinds of breath. The 
man on whom his right cheek breathes softly with gentle breath steers in calm weather the 
ship of love by the sane rudder of persuasion. But they on whom he looses the left cheek 
and stirs forth the storms and wanton blasts of desire have their course ever set on 
a surging sea. Well said Euripides. Is it not then better to choose of the two the favouring 
breeze, and wisely using the rudder of persuasion to sail straight while our course lies in 
Aphrodite's waters ? ' 

5. A new poem, as is indicated by the coronis, begins at this point. The passage 
alluded to was identified by W— Μ as Trag. Gr. Frag. Adesp. 187 δισσά πνΐνματα τπνΊς,'Έρως, 
from Hermias on Plat. Phaedr. p. 76; cf. Lucian, Amor. 37 δίσσά γάρ oiras κατά τον τραγικον 

πνίύματα πνΰ 6 "Ερως, ivos be ονόματος ονχ όμοια πάθη Κ€Κοινώνηκΐ. Meineke had already 

attributed the line to Euripides [Com. Frag. iv. p. 171), a conjecture which is now verified 
by 1. 15 below. Cf. Iph. Aul. 543-57. 

6. κνανοπτ(ρνγος is not Otherwise attested. 

7. Damonomus is unknown ; it is implied that he was sufficiently well-read to recognize 
the allusion rather than that he was experienced in love. 

8-9. The restoration of this passage is a Uttle doubtful. It is not clear in the first place 
whether yap, which has been added above the line, was intended to replace or to supplement 
μίν. W-M would ignore the punctuation of the original and connect και βροτων with άπ€νθήί, 
making [τω] μίν yap αν or [τω] yap αν the beginning of the fresh sentence. But κα\ βροτων 
seems more naturally taken, as marked in the papyrus, with the succeeding relatives, and 
with [τω] I prefer to suppose that the inserted yap is slightly out of its proper position. At 
the end of the line ΐυμ^ν^στίρα] is indicated by the grave accent on the third «; but 
the juxtaposition of two words in -Ttpa is not satisfactory, and since other instances of 
mistaken accents occur in this MS., I have adopted W-M's €νμ(ν(\1. πνοα\, for which there 
is just room in the lacuna. Since Euripides had written πνεύματα nvels, there is no objection 
to the repetition of πνοά . . . Trvevar}. The verse is then a trochaic tetrameter, for which 



1082. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 55 

cf. 1. 15. This will leave —^^ instead of the usual — v^»^ — v-» v^— ^ for the first 

part of 1. 9 ; but other examples of an Adoneus are not wanting in these poems, e. g. ii. 5, 
Fr. 3. ii. 3-4, II, and there is no particular objection to one at this point, Murray makes 
the suggestion that (Ιμίνΐστίρα \ be^ia may be the original text, 8(ξιτ€ρά being due to the 
influence of the preceding word ; this would not be unattractive, were (νμ€ν((ΓΤ€ρα assured. 

10. €ρωτος is probably to be connected with vavv rather than with άτρψία, in spite of the 
absence of the article, for which passages like Xen. Cyrop. viii. i. 8 ra? 6vpa% Κυρου may be 
compared. Or a more normal construction can easily be obtained by the transposition 

vavv τάν, 

15. For Ενριπί8ης cf. note on 1. 5. I adopt in the second part of the verse the slight 
alterations suggested by W-M in order to restore the dislocated metre. Another expedient 

would be to substitute καλόν for κάρρον, which would give the favourite rhythm —<^\j — \j\j ; 

but κάρρον looks right, and is unlikely to have displaced an original καΧόν. 

V. II. κυβ[ might be a derivative of the Doric form KoOuipuv for καθαίραν (cf Collitz, Gr. 
Dialektinschr . 1646 κοθαρων, 1156 κοθάρσι). The choice of words beginning with κοθ is very 
limited. 

13-16. In the restoration of this commendation of a cheap and easy love I owe 
several points to W-M. Cf. e.g. Diog. Laert. vi. 46, Horace, Saf. i. 2. 119 namque 
parabilem amo venerem facilemque. A dot before λ;7σ is presumably accidental ; there is 
another superfluous dot after οβόλω. In 1. 16 {19) the high stop after (ipev might be 
interpreted as one of the dots enclosing the insertion above the line. 

Pr. 2. ii. 1-3. Fr. 31 might be placed at the top of this column so far as external 
appearances are concerned. 

4. κροτησίγομφος is another novel compound. 

6. A vestige from the top of the letter following η suggests λ or δ. 

'J. Perhaps φενξιιτημονα, though the cross-bar of the η must be supposed to have been 
drawn abnormally high; cf. however η in 1. 15. The letter after π is more like another η 
than anything else, but an t is also possible. Compounds of ψυξι- occur, but none with 
φ(νξι-. Or should we combine κayaφtvξ(e)ι ? 

8. σκι6θρ(πτος occurs only here. 

9. The letter between the two lacunae is represented by an upright stroke which 
may well be one of the limbs of a π, and άδ[ο]ι{ο]7Γ[λ](ίχτωυ (W— Μ) is quite suitable ; cf. 
τι8ονοπ\ηξ, which was used by Timon. The supposed rough breathing above the initial 
α may be a mark of long quantity. 

12. γασ[ : ΟΓ yap. The letter after '\τρα may be ττ. 

13 sqq. As restored by W-M this passage describes the physical condition of some one 
suffering from self-indulgence; the first person is used in 1. 16, but the poet cannot be 
here speaking of himself. For ωΚ^σίκαρπον cf Homer κ 510 Ιτίαι ωΚ^σίκαρποι, which 

Hesychius explains δ»ά το ταχίως άποβάλλΐΐν τον καρπόν, η οτι πινόμΐνος δ καρπό: ayavovs ποιΰ ; 

of. Oppian, Cy«. iii. 283 τύμπανον (νκίΚα8ον, Αώνμηϊον, ω\(σίκαρπον. The word would here 
signify useless fat which άπόλλυσι τον καρπον της τροφή:, σφΰξ is included in a list of words 
in •νξ by Theognostus (Cramer, Anecd. Ox. ii. 132), and does not merit the suspicion with 
which it has been regarded (Lobeck, Paralip. p. 108). According to Erasistratus, -πνεύμα 
is comprised in the arteries, and σφvya φνσαΚίαν might therefore mean an inflated pulse. 
φυσα\€ος occurs in Nonnus, ΰίοη. xliii. 405 φνσ. χόανον. For κρα[τ€ρας cf the gloss below, 
] • . s κρα[τ]αιάς. ] . or or ] . . aj is there possible, but κρατ](ρα5 cannot be read. — This would 
not be an unsuitable context for Cere. Fr. 7. 



56 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

iii. 20. Perhaps \αμυρο\•, the letter before μ is more like α than λ, but it is noticeable 
that αΚμυρόν occurs in Cere. Fr. 7. 6. This line ended the poem. 

Pr. 3. ii. 2-14. 'Many a mortal to whom death comes closes his eyes unwillingly. 
And thy heart within thy breast was stubborn and unconquered, making a rich meal of 
every care. Therefore nought goodly ever escaped thee. All the dainty prey of the Muses, 
Ο my soul, was deep in thy afifections, and thou wert a most skilled fisher and hunter of the 
Pierian maids. But now when white hair plain to view hangs about the head . . . and the 
chin is hoary, and life, if it seeks any good thing suited to its age and years, uses flattery, 
looking to the broad threshhold of its end, now . . .* 

3. Of the three variants άμάραντον, άηίραντον, and άμάΚακτον the last seems the most 
suitable, καί is best scanned as a short syllable, —^<u —\j\j ; cf. 1. 11. 

5. Ίημ(\οσαρκοφα•γν.ν is another new compound. The termination is apparently -S>v, 

a Doric contraction of eo for which cf. e.g. C. I. G. 2556, 15 ωνώμΐνος, 2557. 26 (υχαριστωμ(9. 

6. τ(ώ) τ[ί]ν W-M. For the accus. τ[ί]ν cf. Theocr. xi. 39, &c. ; the remains of the 
first letter are quite consistent with τ. κάλων, the reading of the corrector, is shown by the 
metre to be right. To the same hand is due the deletion of the final ν of τ€οισιν, where the 
justice of the alteration is questionable. 

7. The metre is easily restored by the slight modifications proposed by W-M. vrro is 
unsatisfactory, the π occupying too wide a space ; but perhaps some mistake had to be 
rectified. 

8. άλ[ί]ίυτάί and Ιχνίντάχ keep up the metaphor of κρώΒαΚα. 

9-1 ο. This is a difficult passage. In the first place the indicative here and in 1. 12 
after οκκα is extraordinary. It would be easy to write neptatap&vrai and κοΚακίύυ, but the 
past tenses in 11. 4 and 8 and vvp in 1. 9 show that the reference is to the present rather 
than the future, so that the indicative is really more in place. Possibly, since οκα could 
govern either mood, a similar licence was extended to the longer form. Then is λάχναι the 
subject of the sentence ? And what is the case of κορυφά ? Trepiauopevvrai seems probable, 
and the first three letters are consistent with the very slight vestiges. But the preceding 
lacuna would then be so short as practically to involve the dative κορυφ[α\. If π^ρ[ι], which 
is also quite admissible, were read, there would be room for another narrow letter, e. g. 
κορνφ[αί]. The middle of 1. 10 is much damaged ; χ may be read for the doubtful κ, χ or a 
for λ, and ο or σ for f. The next letter looks like ω, but x(f)iXea (not -σι) is not quite 
impossible. 

11. W-M notes that Cercidas as a Cynic philosopher did not conform to the fashion 
of shaving the beard. 

12. κράγνορ suits the sense as well as the palaeographical conditions, but the α is 
perhaps a false Doricism ; κρήγνον is the Theocritean form (xx. 19, Epigr. xix. 3). A com- 
plication is, however, introduced by the apparent interlinear insertion, which remains 
unexplained. There may be merely a dot before the supposed τ. 

13. βι.<παί appears to have been wrongly accented; if ^torSy be read, 8(ρκομίνα is left 
suspended, unless, as Murray suggests, ηλικίας be emended to i7Xt>ct'a. κόλακίύη lacks an 
object, ποτί is only moderately satisfactory ; the vestige of the letter after n- rather points 
to a, λ, or perhaps t ; πάρα or irtpi could well be read if they fitted the context. The marginal 
adscript is too much damaged to be of much assistance ; ττροορων evidently refers to ^^ρκομίνα. 
Possibly there was another line below λωσ κτλ. 

Fr. 4. I. The letters ηθρασ are on a detached fragment which appears to be rightly placed 
here. A σ is in any case wanted to precede κ of σκωπτΐκλιο ., a novel compound presumably 



1083. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 57 

formed from σκώιττίΐν and ΐΚΚόί ; the termination may be ov, or, or ot[r]. Or perhaps 
σκωπη\\ΐ5 could be read ; the supposed accent on the first ι is hardly certain. The circum- 
flex above α of av seems to have been intended as an alternative to the acute, which, to 
judge by its position, was the original accent. It is not clear whether the two last letters 
of the line belong to the text or to an adscript. If to the text, they should be read σ^, 
preceded by a medial stop. , - • r r 

3. -μοφΧνακΐ'ιν is another unfamiliar compound, in which φλνακαν is a form ot 
φΧναρύν. Cf. φλύαξ, φ\νακογράφο5, and Hesych. φ\νάσσ€ΐ• φλναρ^Ί, φ\ύ(ΐ, id. φ\ουάζ(Χ'

5-1 0. These lines may be arranged thus :

σπον8αν noieia6[ai κα\] στρ^φ^ιν ανω κάτω, 
λ[ημ\ι \ι]ν (vpjis δια — w ν^ — 
\μου]σικώ5 άρμοσμίνον. 

In Ι. 6 there is barely room in the lacuna for Ktt{tas] and perhaps Kevas was mistakenly 
written. Xh/xV \}Υ is suggested exemplt gratia by W-M ; a tiny vestige of the first letter 
of 1. 9 is consistent with a μ, but no restoration which does not mclude the remainder of 
the verse can be considered satisfactory. In the latter part of that line β could be p, and 
the doubtful ν may be δ or λ ; the broken letter following might be the μ of μονσικω^,—χϊ 

that is the right word. ,,.,., • r 

11-14. The conclusion of the poem, where in all probability there is a reference to 
the Stoic Zeno, unfortunately remains obscure. In 1. 11 the first stands somewhat to the 
right of the initial letter of the line above and, with a slight allowance for the slope of 
the column, a lacuna of one letter at the beginning of the line is probable, apart from the 
consideration that 5r' or ίταν would be contrary to the dialect. Moreover, near the top ot 
the ο there is a very small speck of ink which may be a survival of the lost letter. At the 
end of this line, at is on a detached strip, which was found folded with Fr. 4 and with little 
doubt belongs to it, though the combination adopted is uncertain. The exiguous remains 
of the preceding letter are consistent with e.g. κ or μ, but not τ; ?λκ[ο]μαι is possible. 
In 1. 12, if Hot above is right, three letters are expected before αβ^υτον. The vestiges 
in front of the α do not suit τ, nor is στα^βυτον here very attractive. Perhaps τον is 
the article, αρσ is probable in 1. 13 after αρσ^νασ and a repetition of that word in some 
form, e.g. άρσεων or &ρσψ, seems to be indicated, β is not impossible for the fourth 
letter, though the very slight trace does not suggest it; a letter having a perpendicular 
stroke like » would be more satisfactory. In 1. 14 the first letter may be y or '", and we 
have the choice between ye'[X]a,s and γ (or y') ?[p>9 : the latter accords better with ixoQov 
and tuMpoi' just above. . , . 

On the meaning of these lines and their relation to the foregomg passage see p. 23. 
It is not necessary to assume that the masculine relationship which seems to have been 
here commended was the ordinary ναιΒ^ραστία, to which Zeno, as the fragments snow 
(cf. Frs. 247-53, V. Arnim), was supposed to have been addicted. The poet was possibly 
upholding a sentiment of a more spiritual order as the true ' Zenonian love. The adjective 
Ζψωνικός is used by Sopater, ap. Athen. iv. p. 160 f. 

I ς. Κερκίδα: Κφ«δ5ί is the common spelling, that being the accent according to 
Arcad. 21. 19 and apparently Herodian, nep\ pou. \^ξ. lo. 30 (though the MS^ ^^^'\^^^ 
Κ,ρκίδαΑ But Κ€ρκ/δαΓ, as in Harpocration, Stobaeus, and others is, as W-M observes, 
better adapted both to Doric nomenclature and to a period prior to the vogue of hypocoristica 
in -as. Stobaeus makes the genitive -a, as here, in Iviii. 10, -ov in iv. 43.

Pr. 5. 2. ΚαλλιμβδωΓ may be the Philo-Macedonian orator ridiculed for his gluttony by 
comic poets ; cf. e. g. Athen. iii. 104 c-d. 

4. σφαΐροί was a form used of the κόσμος by Empedocles, but no doubt Σφαίρω should 
here be taken, with W-M, as a proper name, and the Stoic philosopher (Diog. Laert., vii. 6) 
is meant. This allusion is of cardinal importance in the question of the poet's date 
(cf. p. 26), and has a secondary interest from the fact that Sphaerus had been an 
instructor of Cleomenes, the enemy of Megalopolis (Plut. Cleom. 11).

Ft. 7. 1. a dark fibre running down the verso would suit a combination with Fr. 9. 6, 
a lacuna of one or two letters dividing σαττ . [ from ] . εσ[; but the edges of the papyrus do not 
directly join. 

2-4. The identification of these lines with Cere. Fr. 3 (Stob. Flor. Iviii. 10) is due to 
W-M. μναμόνευ is Meiueke's emendation of the reading of AB άμναμορΐϋ : ΐμναμόνίν Bergk,

circumstance which dissociates them from Fr. i. 

Pr. 37. The hand of this fragment is apparently identical with that of the rest, but the

somewhat doubtful. 

Pr. 46. 6. The interlineation could perhaps be read •αρ.. The first dot is rather far

6ο THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

1083. Satyric Drama. 

Fr. I J 8-5 X 13-1 cm. Second century. 

Plate III (Fr. i). 

The following fragments of a Satyric drama are written in upright uncials 
which are slightly above the medium size and of rather heavy and ungraceful 
appearance. They may be assigned to the second century, a date to which the 
cursive notes, added in Frs. 15 and 19 by a hand perhaps not to be distinguished 
from that of the text, would also seem to point. The names of the dramatis 
personae in the margin of Fr. i are more clearly original ; but a different hand 
is probably to be discerned in one or two of the corrections, and may also well 
be responsible for some of the accents and other signs which occur. Punctuation, 
however, is to a large extent at any rate due to the first scribe. For this purpose 
both high and medial dots are used, though without any clear differentiation of 
values. Marginal paragraph! as usual denote alternations of dialogue ; whether 
a colon in Fr. i. i marks the division of a verse between two speakers is 
questionable (cf. note ad loc). 

Both the nature of the plot and the authorship of the play are unfortunately 
matters of uncertainty. Besides the chorus of Satyrs, which is expressly 
designated in the adscript to Fr. i. 6, two other characters are mentioned, 
Oeneus, whose name is entered in the margin as the speaker of Fr. i. 19-20, and 
Phoenix, who is twice referred to in the text (Frs. 4. 6, 14.3) as well as, probably, 
in an explanatory note (Fr, 19. 8-9). It would perhaps be palaeographically 
just possible, though not at all satisfactory, to read the name at Fr. i. 19 as 
Phineus instead of Oeneus, and Phineus and Phoenix would be a very natural 
conjunction. But there seems to be nothing known of Phineus which suits the 
situation of Fr. i, where the daughter of the person in question is being sought 
in marriage by the Satyric chorus, evidently as one among several suitors 
(cf. 1. 20}. Oeneus, on the other hand, is said to have promoted a contest for 
his daughter Deianira, in which the river-god Achelous was defeated by 
Heracles ; and with these two figures a chorus of Satyrs would be thoroughly 
in keeping. But who then is Phoenix ? Possibly he was introduced as another 
unsuccessful aspirant to the maiden's hand. There was, indeed, a tradition 
actually connecting Phoenix with Oeneus, for according to the Epic poet Asius 
{ap, Pausan. vii. 4. 1) Phoenix married Perimede, a daughter of Oeneus ; and it 



1083. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 6i 

would not be very far-fetched to suppose that in this story he was consoled for 
the loss of Deianira by a marriage with her sister. 

That the drama from which these fragments are derived was of an early 
period is indicated as well by the considerable use of the choral element (cf. 
Frs. I and 18-20) as by the language, which is not inconsistent with a fifth- 
century composition. Can the piece be attributed to one of the three great 
tragedians ? The style is not that of Aeschylus or of Euripides ; but to exclude 
Sophocles is not so easy. The anaphora of εστί in Fr. i. 9 sqq. has a good 
parallel in Soph. Fr. 855. '^-^. Moreover, Sophocles wrote a play called 
* Phoenix ', of which practically nothing is known, and an ' Oeneus ' has also been 
assigned to him on doubtful evidence. It is, then, conceivable that Sophocles was 
the author. On the other hand the repetition of αλλά in Fr. i. 3 and 19 betrays 
some lack of polish, and WilamoWitz would prefer, if any conjectural attribution 
is to be made, to refer the piece to Ion of Chios. That poet is credited with 
two plays named after Phoenix, the Φοίνιξ η Καιν^ύί and a Φοϊΐ'ΐ^ 6evrepos; from 
both of these a few short citations have been preserved, but their plots are quite 
obscure. It is nowhere stated that either of them was a Satyric drama, though 
this silence does not justify a contrary conclusion ; the character of Caeneus, who 
is said to have been turned by iPoseidon from a woman into a man (Nicander, 
ap. Anton. Lib. 17, Schol. Apoll. Rhod. i. ^η, &c.), would lend itself to Satyric 
treatment. The suggestion, however, is made with all reserve ; there is not even 
any certainty that the play was a product of the classical period. 

Of the order of the fragments but few indications are obtainable. Fr. i, in 
which Oeneus asks the Satyrs who they are and they give an account of 
themselves and their occupations, presumably stood early in the play, and on 
that account as well as in consideration of its superior size takes precedence of 
the rest. The position assigned to the smaller pieces is for the most part 
arbitrary. Three in which a metre other than the iambic is more or less 
certainly to be recognized (Fr. 18 anapaestic, Frs. 19 and 20 metre doubtful) 
are placed together near the end. In a few other cases, to which attention is 
called in the notes, the grouping has been influenced by the rather hazardous 
evidence of script or colour.

ηο THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

Fr. 1. 1-2. In papyri of dramatic works a colon regularly denotes a change of 
speaker, but such a division is objectionable in a verse of this kind. Possibly then the colon 
here indicates a metrical division — a purpose for which it is sometimes employed, though 
that explanation too is quite unconvincing. Above the colon is an oblique mark which is 
probably to be interpreted as a rather carelessly written accent on n. Either ^ηΚοΰν τΊ 

8ρωντα [μ{ ?) Kvpeh . . . ΟΤ 8ήλ' ονν τί 8ρωντα (σί ?) Kvpe'iv . . . WOUld be intelligible, epvfneiv 

or some similar word is implied by the following ϊξ^ροΰμ^ν. A small coronis below 1. 2 
marks the transition to another metre. 

2-20. ' {Oen.) Well, I will tell you. But first I wish to know who ye are and from 
what stock ye are sprung ; for as yet I have not learnt. 

Chorus of Satyrs. Thou shalt hear all. As suitors are we come, sons of nymphs, 
servants of Bacchus, fellow-dwellers with gods ; and we are supplied with every fitting 
art : we are equipped for the spear-fight, ours the contest in wrestling, in horse-racing, 
running, boxing, biting, ours twisting of testicles, we have the strains of music, Λve have 
oracles fully known and not falsified, and medicines to put to the test, we know the meting 
out of the skies, and dancing, and lore of the nether world. Is our study fruitless? 
And it is thine to take of these whatever thou wilt, if thou givest thy daughter to me. 

Oeneus. There is indeed no fault with your stock ; but I wish first to see this man 
who is coming . . .' 

16. An acute accent was mistakenly placed on the α of ^ewpta and not afterwards 
cancelled. 

17. To the left of this line there are slight remains of a marginal note. 

19. The of oti/evf is incomplete, but fairly secure, the stroke below it not being in the 
right position for the tail of a φ. καιν^νί is clearly out of the question. 

Fr. 2. I. άπο8ΐρκΐσθαι is unexampled but can hardly be avoided; the p, though 
rubbed, is clear, and the κ is nearly as certain. 

3 sqq. Restorations suggested by W-M are printed exempli gratia. It may be 
supposed that the flame of an altar or torch had been extinguished, r; in 1. 4 must be for j?, 
not η or rj, since of course a star or the moon could not be said to imvuv μίλανα βό[στρνχον. 

η. ^τονα: a proper name is rather expected here, but is not easily obtained; the first 
letter might be y or r, the second is possibly ω. There is no doubt about the accent. 

8. eus[.]tas is again difiacult ; the ω may be o. 

Fr. 3. The appearance of the papyrus and the comparative compactness of the 
writing suggest that this fragment came from the same column as Fr. 2. Perhaps the 
broken letters in Fr. 2. 9 and Fr. 3. i belong to one line, but I can find no satisfying 
combination. 

Fr. 6. This and the following five fragments are grouped with Fr. 5 on account 
of a certain similarity of colour, which however may well be deceptive. 

5. The letters of this line are rather smaller and closer to the line above than usual ; 
apparently the scribe wished to keep the end of the column even with its neighbours. 

Fr. 7. 3. The vestige after φ suits e.g. a or λ. 

Fr. 8. 6. π enclosed between two dots is an interlineation referring to the next verse. 

Fr. 9. 2. To the right of the circumflex accent there are some further marks of ink 
to which I can attach no meaning. A junction between two selides occurs in this fragment. 



1083. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 71 

Pr. 11. 3. The accent is placed slightly to the left of the v, which therefore probably 
formed a diphthong with a preceding vowel. 

Fr. 13. 2. TfJrpafDyets o)^ovs W-M, comparing Eurip. Hel. 1039 τ^τραζύγων οχωρ. 

Pr. 18, 2. ]ηγου was perhaps the end of the line. 

Pr. 20. I. Perhaps θ]€ρμα παφ[λαζ . . .; cf. Aristoph. Fr. 498 (Kock) τό δ' ervos . . . 
TovTi θΐρμον κα\ τοΰτο παφλάζον. Fr. 20 like Fr. 19 is apparently in a lyric measure. 
2. Σιπύλιον : or ]σι IlvXiov. 

Fr. 30. This and the two following small pieces may well be from the ends of columns. 
Fr. 34 is from the top of a column. 



1084. Hellanicus, Atlantis i. 

ιι•5 X 7-9 cm. Early second century. Plate III. 

The origin of this fragment is demonstrated by a citation in the Venetian 
Scholia on Homer Σ 486 ( = Hellan. Fr. ^6): φησί be ml Έλλάνικοί kv τω -πρώτω 
των 'Ατλαντικών tols μ^ <^' {sc. των 'Τάδων) Qioi<s συν^Χθύν, Ύανγ^την Δα', ων γζνέατθαι 
Λακβδαιμοι/α, Μαΐαν Διι, αφ' ων Έρμης, Ήλ^κτραν Δα', (αν Aapbavos, Άλκνόνην 
Ποσ^ιδώΐΊ, ων 'Tpievs, Στ^ρόττην "Αρα, ων ΟΙνόμαος' Κ^λαινω Ώοσζώωνι καΐ αντην 
σνγγ€ν4σΘαι, ων Ανκος' Μξρόττην be Σισύφω θνητω ovtl, ων Γλαυκοί' διό και άμανράν 
(ΐναι. This passage alludes so patently to the text before us as to assure beyond 
any question an identification which the subject and dialect would of themselves 
naturally suggest. References to Hellanicus are not infrequent, but .quotations 
of his ipsissima verba are extremely scarce ; and the present addition to them, 
though regrettably small, is very acceptable. 

Its handsome appearance indicates with sufficient clearness that this 
manuscript contained the Atlantis itself, and not merely some commentary or 
grammatical treatise in which the Atlantis was excerpted. The rather narrow 
column is written in a round upright hand very similar to that of 844, though 
still more calligraphic. Of the two 1084 is perhaps slightly the older ; but 
they no doubt belong to approximately the same period, probably the earlier 
part of the second century. Dots in the high and middle position, as well as 
paragraph!, are used for purposes of punctuation, the medial point marking 
a briefer pause (1. 15). Short lines are filled up by small angular signs turned in 
the opposite direction to that in which they are usually found.

cf. Choerob. in Cramer, Anecd, Oxon. ii. p. 271. φϊλητης in the present passage seems at 
first sight guaranteed by the following sentence ; but οτι . . . συν(κοιμ[ατο may well be a gloss 
which has become incorporated into the text. As an interpretation it is no happier than its 
rivals, for φίλητης should have an active, not a passive sense.

1085. Pancrates, Hadrian and Antinoiis. 

19-6 X 14-2 cm. Second century. 

It is related by Athenaeus (xv. 677 d-f) that Pancrates, an Alexandrian poet 
and an acquaintance of his own (τών (τηχωρίων ττοίητψ, bv καΐ ημύ^ €γνωμξν), 
suggested to the Emperor Hadrian when at Alexandria that a certain variety of 
lotus resembling the rose should be called after Antinoiis, saying that it had 
sprung from the blood of a famous lion (τον Μαυρουσιου \4ovtos) which had been 
killed by Hadrian in the neighbourhood of the city. This fearsome beast, we 
are told, had long ranged over Libya and terrorized the inhabitants. The 
emperor was so pleased with the idea that he rewarded its originator with free 
maintenance at the Museum. Athenaeus proceeds to quote from ' the poem ' of 
Pancrates four ' not inelegant ' hexameter lines in which the lotus of Antinoiis 
was referred to : 

ούΚην ipTTvXkov, k^vKov κρίνον rjb^ νάκινθον 

ττορφνρ4ην γλανκον re xekLbovioio ττ4τηλα 

και pobov kapivoiaiv ίνοιγόμξνον ζζφύροισιν 

ουτιω yap φν€ν avOos €ττώννμον Άνηνόοω. 

Pancrates, therefore, embodied his idea in a poem which, it may be pre- 
sumed, was recited to the emperor. Now the fragment of which the text 
follows below describes in epic style a great lion hunt the heroes of which were 
Hadrian and Antinoiis. The inference is obvious, and will hardly be called in 
question. Here evidently we have the episode which inspired Pancrates; and 
the poem is none other than that from which Athenaeus quotes. 

A further sample of that poem is an interesting acquisition, although its 
recovery is not likely to add to the literary reputation of Pancrates. His 
versification is sufficiently good ; but his style is diffuse and turgid. The 
long description of the infuriated lion (11. 10-25) is a laboured performance, 
exaggerated but undistinguished either by force or originality. It will be felt 
that the rather faint praise bestowed upon his contemporary by Athenaeus 
was the utmost that he deserved. 

The sheet upon which the verses are inscribed had been used as the cover 
of a glass bottle, about the mouth of which it was found wrapped. They are 
written in an upright and rather small cursive hand which does not look 
subsequent to the latter part of the second century, and can therefore be 
removed by but few stages from the author's autograph. Marks of elision and 
stops in the high position were added by the original scribe.

ii. 1-25. ' . . . and swifter than the horse of Adrastus which once saved the king as 
he fled ... in the battle-throng. Such was the steed whereon Antinoiis sat in wait for the 
deadly lion, holding in his left hand the bridle-rein and in his right a spear shod with 
adamant. First Hadrian hurling his brass-fitted spear wounded the beast but slew him 
not, for of purpose he missed the mark, wishing to test to the full the sureness of aim of 
beauteous Antinoiis, son of the Argus-slayer. Stricken, the beast was yet more aroused, 
and tore up in his wrath the rough ground with his paws, and the dust rising in a cloud 
dimmed the light of the sun ; he raged even as the wave of the surging sea when Zephyrus 
is stirred forth after the wind of Strymon. [Straight] he rushed upon them both, scourging 
with his tail his haunches and sides . . . while his eyes, beneath his brows, flashed dreadful 
fire ; and from his ravening jaws the foam showered to the earth as his teeth gnashed

Avithin. On his mighty head and shaggy neck the hair stood bristling; on his other limbs 
it was bushy as trees, and on his back ... it was like whetted spear-points. In such wise he 
came against the glorious god and upon Antinoiis, like Typhoeus of old against Zeus, 
slayer of giants.' 

ii. 1-2. Adrastus was saved by his horse Arion in the expedition of the Seven 

against Thebes ; cf. e. g. Apollodor. iii. 6. 7 "Κ8ραστον Se μόνον Ίππος buamaev Αρίων, 

Homer Ψ 346-'7. In 1. 2 ]ωί, which is quite clear, is no doubt the termination of an 
adverb qualifying φενγοντα. κλονον then remains indefinite, but this causes no difficulty 
in view of the recurrence of the phrase κατά κΚόνον in the Ih'ad {n 331, 713, 789, Φ 422) 
and the familiarity of the allusion. The first a of ανακτά has been converted apparently from 
an e, i. e. the scribe at first wrote ποτ€ unelided. 

3. δαμασ7)ν[ο]ρπ, which was Suggested by W-M, is a new compound. 

7. ΰ[ηρος is very doubtful ; the remains of the initial letter suggest rather σ. 

g. [Α]ργ€ΐφοι/Γΐαδαο : cf. Kaibel, falser. Gr. ltd. 978 (a), where Antinoiis is described as 
i/e'os ^eoy Έρ/χάωι/. In a coin struck at Bithynium in his honour Hermes is figured on the 
reverse (Eckhel, vi. p. 532). 

10. ποσσι δ αμνσσ\ΐ : cf. the passage quoted from Hesiod, Scuf. in the note on 11. 15-17. 

12. For η^χλν^ν (W— Μ) cf. Q. Smyrn. xi. 248 κόνιν δ' άκάμαντ(5 άηται 2)ρσαν άπ€φ€σίην' 
ήχΚνσ( δε πάσαν νπιρθίν ψρα θεσπίσίην. 

13. μαινετο δ ω? ore : cf Homer Ο 605. 

ΐ5• Some adverb such as ώκα would be suitable, but that word cannot be read. 

I5~I7• Cf. Homer Υ 170 oipfj 8e nXevpas T€ και Ισχία άμφοτ€ρωθ€ν /xaanerat, whence ϊσχία 
is adopted in 1. 16, and Hesiod, Scu/. 430—1 γλαυκιόων δ' οσσοίί buvbv πλευρά? re και ωμονς ovpfj 

μαστιόων ποσσ\ -γλάφίΐ. σφΐτίρψ μααηγι perhaps refers to the belief that the lion's tail

which is quite possible. 

17. πυρ is followed by a small vestige which only shows that the next letter was 
a rather tall one, e. g. κ or φ, and φ[λ€γ(θ(σκον (W-M) gives the requisite sense, bfivov is 
better taken adverbially than as an adjecdve. 

18-19. Cf. Homer Υ 168 περί τ άφρος οδόντας γίγνεται. [e|awet], which waS suggested 

by W-M, can of course be replaced by several other words, e. g. εκπροια or εσταζΐν. es 
[aiav at the end of this verse is not very satisfactory, and it is likely enough that the verb 
stood here, but 6;^[ei;ei' is unsuitable. The initial e is hardly to be avoided, and ο8[οντων is 
thus excluded. 

2 2. [δασκιοί] W-M. ]ην may also be ]ων, i. e. some epithet of μ(\€ων, e. g. [€κπαγ\]ων. 

23. [ιστα]μεΐ'7; would be Weak and hardly sufficient for the lacuna, [(γρο]μ(νη (Callim. 
JI. Apoll. 64 θίμείλια . . . eyeipeiv) is also Unlikely. 

25. γιγαΐ'τ[ο]λ[εταο] and πα[ρο]ς were proposed by W-M; the lacuna is too small for 

πα\τρο]ς, 

26. (σσ([νμ]ΐνον : there is little doubt about the first σ, and the preceding ε is very 
suitable ; hence it seems likely, as W-M suggests, that Pancrates ventured on an otherwise 
unexampled perfect form, ε'σσύμει /os, besides having a short v, is adjectival. 

27. It is uncertain who is the subject here. Neither Αν[τ]ινοοιο nor Αν[τ]ι.νοον nor 
Αΐ'[τ}ΐΌο? suits the vestiges at all well ; Αι[τ]ινοιο for -0010 is possible, but this too is uncon- 
vincing. The supposed ν before the lacuna might be ρ or φ, and ]ρομ[ can be ]φομ[.

1085. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 77 

Unplaced fragment. The third letter in 1. i is clearly τ not υ, and so this small piece 
cannot well be placed at the beginning of 11. 19-20. In 1. 2 the mark of elision is very 
doubtful. 



1086. Scholia on Iliad ii. 

23-2 X 41 cm. First century b. c. 

This considerable fragment of a commentary on the second Book of the 
Iliad is written in a sloping semi-cursive hand which may be assigned to about 
the middle of the first century B. c. Certain Ptolemaic characteristics are evident, 
e.g. the linking of r\ to the succeeding letter; but these are not so marked as to 
render probable a date prior to the first century. Palaeographical material for 
that period is still very scanty ; some resemblances may, however, be found 
between the present script and 236 {a)-{c) (P. Oxy. II, Plate V) which are dated 
in the reign of Ptolemy Auletes. A probably rather earlier specimen of the 
same type is to be seen in P. Brit. Mus. 133 of Demosth. Ep. 3 {Classical Texts 
in the B. M., Plate III) ; cf. also 1087. The verso of 1086 contains a series of 
medical receipts in an early first-century A. D. hand. A remarkable feature of 
the recto is the great breadth of the columns, which measured about 16 cm. 
across. The letters are usually rather small, but there is much unevenness, 
due partly to a tendency to enlarge initials of clauses and even of words, which 
the scribe is rather inclined to separate from each other ; α is often a conspicuous 
letter, η is commonly of the uncial form, but the cursive h-shaped character also 
appears. The head of a final σ frequently slopes upwards above the line. An 
accent and a mark of short quantity are once used (1. 49). No stops occur, 
pauses in the sense being marked by blank spaces which are here and there 
accompanied by marginal paragraphs Shorter blanks, as has been said, are 
sometimes allowed after individual words when there is no real pause ; an attempt 
has been made in the transcript to indicate the more noticeable divisions, but it 
is impossible accurately to reproduce the original. Several of the conventional 
abbreviations not infrequently found in works of this kind are employed ; cf. e. g. 
663, 856, and the Berlin Didymus. κ- = και, μ = μέν, y = γάρ, τ = των, / = €ση', 
\ = etz/at, while Ttpo's is represented by a semicircle {= -n) enclosing a short 
vertical stroke which stands for the p. A monogram of χ and ρ in the margin 
stands for χρηστόν and calls attention to passages considered to be of special 
value. Such corrections as have been introduced into the text are probably by 
the original scribe, who, however, has not succeeded in eliminating all the errors. 



78 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

For the history of the Homeric scholia, and more especially of the 
Aristarchean tradition, this new commentary is of no little interest and importance. 
Its scope is comprehensive. Exegesis plays a considerable part, the less obvious 
words and phrases being briefly explained more or less in the style of the 
Scholia Minora or the Lexicon of Apollonius. Certain coincidences with those 
two authorities are pointed out in the notes appended below. Geographical 
and mythological references are also elucidated; cf. e.g. 11. 1-9, 49-51. Another 
class of comments deals with differences of reading, e.g. 11. 26-7, 119. Thirdly, 
the critical signs of Aristarchus are frequently prefixed to the lemmata and their 
grounds are explained. This is the feature that gives the treatise its significance. 
As is well known, our knowledge of the work of Aristarchus is largely derived 
from the extracts from Aristonicus, Ilepi rStv Άριστάρχου σημείων, and Didymus, 
riepl TTJs Άρισταρχίίου διορ^ώσεω?, which have been incorporated together with 
the signs themselves in the Venetian Codex A of the Iliad. But the papyrus 
must on account of its date be independent alike of Aristonicus and Didymus, 
who both flourished under Augustus. In it, therefore, the tradition of Aristarchus 
is carried a stage further back. The anonymous commentator is to be regarded 
as a representative of the Aristarchean school, and upon such writings as this, 
along with those of the great critic himself, the work of Aristonicus may be taken 
to have been based. Speculation concerning the author's identity is not likely to 
be profitable. The most obvious name perhaps is Ammonius, who was probably 
the successor of Aristarchus at the Alexandrian library. But the field is too 
large. Suidas puts the number of the grammarians who were disciples of 
Aristarchus at about forty {s.v. Άρίσταρχος), and there are several even among 
those who are known to us any one of whom might have been the author. A 
certain similarity in 11. 2-3 to a passage of Strabo provides no trustworthy clue ; 
cf. the note ad loc. 

The papyrus and Aristonicus are often in close agreement ; see the notes on 
11, II, 29, 63-7, 98, lao-i. But the two authorities by no means coincide. An 
interesting passage of some length (11. 11-18), describing Aristarchus' defence of 
the poet against the criticism of Praxiphanes, does not here come into account, 
since the reference is to the Odyssey^ not the Iliad^ and is only brought in by 
way of illustrating a principle. Apart from that, however, Aristarchean signs 
and their explanations which are unrecorded in Venetus A occur in the papyrus, 
and vice versa : cf. 11. 46-7, 54-5, 86-7, 93-4, 107, 114-16, 120-1, and the notes. 
In one place (1. 83) Ven. A has the σημ^ΐον but lacks the explanatory scholium, 
which is supplied by the papyrus. Similar discrepancies have been observed in 
some other papyri (445, P. Rylands 51, P. Brit. Mus. 128, and the Hawara 
papyrus, on which cf. the notes below) with regard to the use of the critical 



1086. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 



79 



signs, which tend to be more frequent in the mediaeval MS. In the present 
case, however, the advantage is rather the other way, and it is plain that Ven. A 
is not exhaustive. The Aristarchean σημζίωσίί seems to have been thinned 
down by a process of eclecticism. Its details would appeal differently to 
different minds, and what might be rejected as of comparative unihiportance by 
one critic would be retained by another. Some allowance must also be made 
for accidental omissions. 

The presence of this large 'Aristarchean strain in so early a text naturally 
lends no little weight to the other elements in it which have less definite 
authority, though how far these elements are likely to represent the teaching of 
Aristarchus is of course open to question. To some extent they are already to 
be found in the various extant sources ; new views and explanations to which 
attention may be called are recorded in 11. ^-6, 42-3, 49-51, 58-60, 75-7. 
A measure of consideration is also due to the textual evidence of the papyrus, 
although the presence of Aristarchean symbols does not at all necessarily imply 
an Aristarchean text. This is evident from e.g. the Bodleian papyrus from 
Hawara (2nd cent.), in which not only diacritical signs but also occasional 
Aristarchean variants are entered ; cf. Ludwich, Homervttlgata, pp. 42 sqq. On 
the other hand the text of that papyrus did not coincide with the vulgate, to 
which reference is sometimes made,^ and does embody certain readings of 
Aristarchus. As much may be expected of 108Θ, in spite of the fact that in 
two passages (11. 75 and 83) it diverges from the Aristarchean reading. Several 
agreements are noticeable between the lemmata here and the exceptionally well 
written Hawara papyrus; cf. notes on 11. 62, βο,, y^, 75. Other lections of 
interest occur at 11. 26-7, 38, 61, and 119 ; the last named passage mentions the 
otherwise unrecorded variant 'Avbeipoio for ΑΙσηποω in Β 825. 

In supplementing the large lacunae of Cols, i and iii, the number of letters 
lost has been estimated on the basis of the passages containing citations, where 
the extent of the loss is exactly determined, i.e. in Col. i, 11. 19, 28, and 34, and 
in Col. iii, 11. 97 and 102. No more than an approximate accuracy is often 
obtainable, especially in Col. iii, where inequalities in the length of the line as 
well as variations of spacing and script have to be reckoned with ; a few letters 
either above or below the number adopted would here be generally admissible. 

^ The adscript at 1. 769 e. g. should be read η κο{ινη) fefrrepos ψν, not ήτοι φ. η. as given by Savce 
Cf. 445, 685. ^ '

coincidence, even if eV Ύιταρίω opei were not a restoration, that Strabo was acquainted with 
the present scholia. If he were here utilizing any Homeric commentary, his source might 
well be the often quoted work of ApoUodorus on B, which was not concerned with textual 
criticism. 

5-6. (e'rat) in I. 6 appears to imply that the construction of 1. 5 was continued and 
that therefore alternative reasons were proposed. But the shadiness of the Peneus can 
have nothing to do with the phenomenon referred to in 11. 3-4, and hence it is probable, 
as Mr. Allen suggests, that 11. 5-7 are concerned with the supposed derivation of the 
Peneus from the Styx (1. 755), and the restoration proceeds on that hypothesis. Cf. 841. 
Frs. 129-31. 4, Schol. For Ύ€]μπη cf. the passage from Strabo cited in the note on 1. 3. 
At the end of 1. 6 the reading of the papyrus gives no sense, and I have adopted an 
emendation suggested by W-M. 

8. Ύ(νθρη8όνο! is the accepted spelling ; vv. 11. Ύ(ρθ., TevO., Ύ(θ.

ιι-ι8. ' The sign is afiixed because he has dealt first with what comes second. This 
is the basis of Aristarchus' defence of the poet against Praxiphanes. The latter is surprised 
at Odysseus because in his soothing intercourse with his mother he asked only at the end 
about Telemachus and Penelope, since he wishes above all else to hear what has happened 
in his absence. But Anticleia, he says, with great intelligence at once proceeds to this very 
subject. Aristarchus therefore points out that . . . Anticleia. The passage is marked 
with a sign because it is the peculiar habit of the poet to deal first in this way Λvith what is 
secondary.' 

II, Line 763 has a diple in Ven. A, the scholiast similarly remarking δη προς τ6 
bevTtpov ττρότΐρον άπήντηκεν. The diple is absent in the Hawara papyrus. 

1 1-18. The restoration of these lines is in the main due to W-M. The passage of the 
Odj'ssey referred to is λ 164-203, where Anticleia deals with the questions of Odysseus in 
the inverse order to that in which they are put. There is no parallel to this note in the 
extant scholia on the Ih'ad, but points of contact occur in Schol. λ 177 el8o)s 6 Όδυσσΐνς tos 

fKvpas €χθρω5ώς irtpi τας pvovs δίακΐΐμίναί nfp\ ΤΙηνΐλόπη: ίιστάτης ηρώτησ€ν. η δε ΐνφραίνονσα τον 

υΐον nep\ πρώτης αυτής άπίκρΐνατο. Praxiphanes is presumably the Peripatetic philosopher, 
whose name has recently occurred in a contemporary Delian inscription; cf. Wilhelm, 
Jahresh. d. Ost. Arch. Inst. 1905, pp. 1-5, Cronert, Kolotes und Menedemos, pp. 69-74, 179. 
He was a pupil of Theophrastus, and wrote a dialogue ilfpt ποιητών, in which criticism of the 
kind here mentioned may well have been incorporated. The Praxiphanes cited in the 
scholia on Oed. Col. 900 is probably identical. It was natural to give credit for σοφία to 
Anticleia as the daughter of Autolycus. Lines 16-17 St' ψ αΐτίαν . . . Άντίκλίΐα remain 
obscure. 

19-20. The restoration was suggested by W-M. τάχη Pap., but the substitution of 7 
for fi was particularly common at this period ; cf. e.g. 1088, and 11. 31 and 70 below. 

21—2. Restored by W— M; cf. Schol. Β τ6 Be οτριχας άντΙ τοΰ όμόχροας, οιίτΐας όμηλικας, 
ίίσας τοΊς νωτοις όμοιας. Schol. Did. has Ισο€Τ€Ίς aS the gloss on ο14τ(ας. 

22—3. Cf. Scholl. AB (στι be αμφω Ίσης τώ νώτω ως σταφύλτ] peTpelaOai, ο (στι \αοζικώ 
διαβήτη, ος αμα π\άτος και νψος μ(τρ(ΐ. 

2 ζ. The supplement was suggested by W-M. 

26-7. A note on the name ΐΐηρ(Ίη, v. 1. Uiepirj, on which the extant scholia make no 
comment. iJiepij] is the common reading, and is retained by Leaf, but Ιΐηρύτ), which is 
preferred by most modern editors, is found in the Bodleian Hawara* papyrus and two other 
MSS., besides Eustath. and Steph. Byz., and is confirmed, as Mr. Allen remarks, by the 
occurrence of oi Ώηρΐΐς in Inscr. Gr. ix. 2. 205 = Dittenberger, Syil 425. Schol. A has 
niepifi in the note on Ψ 383. π\α[νώνται was suggested by W-M. The beginning of the 
line, he thinks, contained a reference to the service of Apollo to Admetus ; cf. Schol. Did. 
τας 'Αδμήτου ϊππονς δυο κτλ., and Schol. A οη Ϋ 3^3• Perhaps, however, there was merely 
some phrase like ' So we should read ' or ' So the best copies '.

sort was no doubt said in the papyrus, but Ύονριζονται is an intractable termination. The 
doubtful τ may be y, e, or σ. Perhaps, as W-M suggests, μΐ^{(ω)ρΊζονται should be read. 
At the end of the line he would alter ΐτι to on, which, however, is hardly necessary.

σ(νόμ€νον (1. φνόμ^νυν, for which W-M compares Schol. Nicander, Ther. 597). In the 
following lemma the a of αυ does not seem to have been cancelled, and the two readings 
αυ and ev were therefore intended to stand side by side as variants, fv is the usual lection, 
but αυ is found in several MSS. 

40. The restoration is due to W-M. 

42—3. Cf. Schol. Did. ώϊ αν d en\ πάσαν την yrjv vepoiTO και κατΐσθίοι το πυρ. The vieW 

that ot Se means the horses of Achilles (1. 770) is remarkable. Other commentators take 
11. 780-5 more naturally as referring to the Hellenic host in general; cf. Schol. Did. οίδ' αρ• 

οιδί δη "EXXiji/es•, and Eustath. τον κατάλογον ττληρώσαί ό ποιητής, fira Ίστορησας ανδρών κα\ Ίππων 
τους αρίστους, (π\ την ΈΧληνικην ερχίται σύνταξιν κτλ. παραναπεφώνηται apparently means ' is 

parenthetical ' ; I can find no other instance of the word. 

44. υπ(στ€νάχιζ€ : SO ABF, &c., Eustath. ; υπ€στονάχιζ€ is a well represented variant. 
The e in the papyrus is coarsely written, but the letter is sufficiently clear. 

45. Ιμάσσυ (AB, &c., edd.) seems more probable than Ίμάσσ([ι], which is found in 
several MSS. and Eustath. 

46-7. These notes do not appear in the extant scholia, nor is there any σημύον in 
Ven. A or apparently P. Hawara at 1. 782. Cf., however, Schol. A on *• 603 Βτι χωόμΐνος 

νυν άντΙ του χόλουμ€νος, Φ ^ig, Ψ 3^5) ^C., Apollon, Lex. χωόμίνος χολούμ(νος κτλ. 

47~8. Cf. Schol. A ^ Ύυφω€ί γαίαν Ίμάσστ]^ απ' ίνθίίας της Ύυφω(ύς, τα is an error, and 

the accusative Ύυφωία is unexpected when the dative and genitive stand in the Homeric 
text. But the Hawara papyrus has [τ]υφωία in 1. 782, and perhaps that variant is reflected 
here also. 

49-51. Our commentator evidently interpreted ΐυνάς in the same sense as Schol. Β 
ΐυφημως δε τον τάφον (Ινας (κάλβσίν. The location of Arima in Pisidia is new ; Schol. Β and 
Eustath. place it in Cilicia, others in Mysia, Lydia, or Syria. For the reference to Etna 

and Pindar cf. Eustath. ό δε (^SC. ό Ζίΰί) κιραυνώσας τον Ύυφωνα την Σικΐλικην ΑΪτνην . . . αϋτώ 
€πΐθηκ€ν. οιδΐ τα μυθικά ταύτα κα\ Τίίνδαρος. The quotation κύνω . . . άμφίκΐΐται is also found 

in Strabo, p. 627 (= Pindar, Fr. 92). lav refers to vtan-epoi', it is unnecessary to write ως. 
The two short strokes after μ in 1. 50 were apparently added for the purpose of filling up 
the line. ■ At the beginning of this line the letters τν seem to have been divided from at on 
account of a flaw in the papyrus. 

54-5. ' The diplS marlts the absence of the preposition διά.' πρόθίσις was recognized 
by W-M. There is no dipl6 nor accompanying note in Ven. A, but the diple is found 
here in the Hawara papyrus.

seems to be quite novel. L. 58 needs correction, for the second on is plainly superfluous, 
and avT€ must be meant for αυτή or αίιτή. 

6o-I. So Schol. Did. Ιστάμενη' στάσα. 

6i. An obelus, which on the analogy of the succeeding verses is expected before 
«σοΓο, has been omitted. The papyrus supports the better tradition in reading fie and not 
γάρ (Eustath. and a number of MSS.). vet is an Attic spelling. 

62. Αίσυιήταο: SO the Hawara papyrus ; Αίσνήταο is the accepted form. 

yepovTos : avaicros 20 (sccond Cent.) and one or two mediaeval MSS. The final σ is 
really more like an e. 

Line 794 8ίγμ(νος όππότβ νανφιν άφορμηθΐϊίν Αχαιοί has been Omitted, possibly by 
a mere oversight ; cf. 1. 92. But it is noticeable that this verse only of 791-5 is obelized 
in P. Hawara, and the omission here may be taken to indicate that the line was absent 
from the text of Aristarchus. It is found accompanied by an additional verse in 
P. Hibeh 19 (e). 

σφιν : so 20 (which no doubt also had μ^τίφη later in the verse), the ninth-century 
MS. in the library of "Victor Emmanuel at Rome, and one or two later copies, including 
Harl. 1 77 1, which also agrees in the reading ΐΐηρΐίη (cf. note on 11. 26-7). 

63. μετίφη : SO the Hawara papyrus, v. 1. A^, Β and many other MSS. 

63-73. ' Aristarchus athetizes these lines on the ground, first, that when Iris is sent by 
Zeus she is never made to resemble some one else, but always appears in her own person. 
Secondly, her pretence is unconvincing ; for if Iris is brought in merely for the purpose of 
announcing their approach, Polites could easily have done this ; if, however, it is in order 
to make the Trojans go out when they were afraid to do so, then let Iris speak as the 
messenger of Zeus. It is also clear that, when Homer makes one person resemble another, 
he also puts in their mouth the appropriate language. Now the commencement is not like 
Polites, but goes beyond him. He says " Old man, interminable words are ever pleasant 
to thee ". If Iris is the speaker, this is appropriate, but if the son is addressing his father, 
it is inappropriate; for he ought to say, "My father." And "interminable words are 
pleasant" (that is, continuous, for to determine is to separate) is also unlike Polites 
addressing his father (for he should speak with deference) but is more like Iris.' 

The adverse criticism of Aristarchus on 11. 791-5 was already known from Schol, A, 
where the same objections are put rather more concisely, άπο τούτου ίως τοΰ τω μιν ΐΐΐσαμίνη 

άθίτοΰνται στίχοι ττίντε. fl yap ίΡΐκα τοΰ ττροαγγΰΧαι δτι παραγίνονται οί "Έ,ΧΚηνα, ήρκΐΐ 6 ΙΙοΧίτης,

(πιτάσσΐΐν. It is to be observed that the words ίβοί τί eWi . . . επίγνωσιν, which do not 
support the argument of Aristarchus, but rather the opposite view, have no counterpart in 
the papyrus. The concluding sentence κάί το "Εκτορ κτΧ. corresponds to 11. 84 sqq. below. 

άπόκρισΐ! in 1. 65 is inapposite, since the speech of Iris is not an ' answer ', and 
W-M's emendation υπόκρισις is clearly an improvement. 

71—2. Cf. e.g. Schol. Β άκριτοι 8e oi αναρίθμητοι, Schol. Did. άκριτοι' ά8ιάκριτοι, ποΧΧοί. 

A similar idea was probably intended to be conveyed by αχώριστοι; cf Apollon. Lex. 
άκριτόμνθΐ άκριτα κα\ ά8ιάστατα ΧαΧών. The letters of φίΧοι are faint, and it might be supposed 
that they had been partially erased ; this, however, would imply that άκριτοι was taken for 
a predicate, ' words are inseparable from you,' which is not a likely interpretation. In the 



1086. NEW CLASSICAL TEXTS 97 

latter part of 1. 72 some emendation is necessary, and perhaps άκονόντωί . . . toiKev should be 
rejected, as W-M would prefer. 

73. &s re ποτ '. SO the Hawara papyrus; ώϊ ηοτ eV most MSS. 20 has an unmetrical 
combination of the two readings, ω? re ποτ «π. [ω? re πο^ΐ αρηνη in P. Hibeh 1 9 is likely to 

be a corruption of [ωί re πό\τΐ ειρήνης. 

άνέκκλιτος : so Schol. Did. ; άν/γκλίστοϊ (sic) Apollon. Lex. 

74. The reference is to A 349, λ 8o. 

75. η p{ev) 8ή : the ordinary view of Homeric editors (e.g. Ludwich, Allen) that the 
reading of Aristarchus in this passage was η8η μίν, is supported by a partially effaced note in 
the Hawara papyrus beginning λ^ι\στα\)χ{ος) η δη μ^ν (so probably, as in several MSS., not 
ηδη). It may nevertheless be questioned whether the passage in Schol. A relating to the 
Aristarchean reading has been correctly interpreted. This is given in Dindorf's edition as 

follows '. η μίν δη' οντω5 αΐ Άριστάρχον, ήδη μίν, και ev toIs προς Κωμανον ομοίως προφίρΐται, κα\ 
μήποτε παραπλησιόν tern τω 'ήδη και Φρνγίην εΙσηΚνθον άμπίΚόίσσαν^ (Γ 1 84). But μίν after ήδη 

is not in the original text, but an editorial insertion ; and the combination ήδη και seems 
confirmed by the comparison of Γ 184, which with Dindorf's reading loses its point. 
I venture to suggest that the note should stand unaltered either in the form η μίν δη' οΰτως 

αΐ Άριστάρχον, ήδη και. iv τοϊς προς Κ. ομοίως προφ4ρίται, και μηποτ€ παραπλησιόν ίστι τω ήδη και κτ\. ; 
or η μΐν δη' ούτως αί ^Αριστάρχον. ήδη καί iv το'ις κτ\. If this is right, there will be a conflict 

between Schol. A and the Hawara papyrus. A possible explanation is that the copyist of 
the former transposed pev and δη in the lemma owing to an inadvertence. But it should be 
observed that the note in the papyrus is incomplete ; it was continued in a second line, 
which may have modified in some way the statement of the first. 

η μΐν δη IS also found in the text of the Hawara papyrus as well as in AB and the 
majority of MSS., Hdn., Eustath. ; ήδη μίν is superscribed in A and is otherwise well 
supported. In Schol. A 17 μ(ν δη was written. 

75-7. The commentator's opinion is directly opposed to that of Leaf, who thinks (note 
ad loc) that Ί. 798 is rather suited to a human warrior than to a goddess '. 

79. π6τ\ΐ y]{ap) e[rSe λα]ό[ΐ' was Suggested by W-M. I have been much inclined to 
assign the first of the unplaced fragments to this position^ reading TroVe >(άρ) «toe ταντ\α, but 
the difiiculty then is, without assuming some corruption, to find a suitable combination with 
what follows. To add η \aov ος αξι\ος would make the line too long. 

80. A synonym of οίκΐϊον apparently followed ov, though the sense would be complete 
without further addition. 

81-2. The supplements only aim at giving the general sense, Avhich is evident. 

83. πΐρί : so MSS. (including 20), with the exception of the late Ambrosianus 
Ε 35, which gives προτί, a reading also inserted as a v. 1. in A, with the note μαχησόμΐνοι 

προτΐ άστυ" όντως προτΙ αστν, ον π^ρι άστυ, ινα &σιν ΐρχόμ,ΐνοι προς την πολιν. ομοίως κα\ Ζηνόδοτος 

κα\ 'Αριστοφάνης γράφονσιν. Aristarchus is not here directly named, but analogy strongly 
supports the usual inference that προτί was his reading. 

TO σημ(ΐον κτλ. : the Supplement is derived from 1. 55 ; cf. Eustath. τό δί άρχονται πώίοιο, 

άντΙ τοΰ δια της πίδιάδος, και ΐστιν ομοιον τω διίπρησσον π^δίοιο, and Schol. Did. πίδίοιο' δια τον 

π(δίου. Α diple is inserted against the verse in A as well as in the Hawara papyrus, but 
there is no corresponding note. 

84. Ue Se : so most MSS. ; VV. 11. 2)δ€ ye, 2)Se Ti. 

86-7. TovTo . . . 7ΐ[ρ]ΰξαι seems to be a paraphrase of SSe δε βεξαι, and the word 
preceding π[ρ]ίξαι should then be a verb meaning ' I command ', but neither κελεύω nor 
άξιώ is suitable, and a future would be out of place. The remains suggest ξω, not ξαι, and 
ρ[ε]$αι π[ρΥιξαι is therefore improbable, λέγει in 1. 86 may be followed by any round letter,

Line 802 in A has a diple prefixed with the note on nepiaaevei 6 Be σύν^ίσμο! ; there is 
also a diplS in P. Hawara.

there may be no loss before the traces of the supposed first v.

1. 807 (so too P. Hawara) with the accompanying scholium on τοΰτό eVn τό πλάνησαν τον τα 
('πάνω διασκίνάσαντα (i. e. a misunderstanding of ηγνοίησ^ν led to the interpolation of 11. 791-5). 

ου ΚΗται δε σννηθως ήμίν το η•γνοίησ€ν, αλλ' άντι τον ουκ άπιθησΐν, 

95-7• The supplements at the ends of 11. 95-6 are those proposed by W-M. δ κώ. 
μάΧΧον in 1. 95 is a much compressed phrase, but it is hardly necessary to suppose an 
omission, fim τό must have been preceded by some word meaning ' he recognized her ' or 
* she was recognized ', e.g. e| αρχής ίγνω (W-M) or (^(φάνη, but neither of these will fit the 
vestiges, ayvouadai = άφροντίζΐσθαι, and 8η\ον is of course to be supplied from the pre- 
ceding sentence. The vulgar spelling πάλι is found in late prose (e. g. that of Philodemus ; 
cf. Cronert, Mem. Gr. Hercul. p. 140) and in papyri of the Roman age (e.g. B. G. U. 

423• 3. 7)• 

97. For the diplS cf. 1. 54, &c. ; but the decipherment is uncertam and the vestige before 
the lacuna would also be consistent with a π. The diple is also found in Ven. A and 
P. Hawara. 

98. π\λ-τ]βνντικως ίφηκΐν waS Suggested by W-M ; cf. Schol. A δη (μφασιν ?χ« πολλωι»

passage θ 58 δη μία εστί πύλη, και πληβυντικωί (Ίπ€ πύλαι. Eustathius attributes this note to 
Herodorus and Apion. 

99—100. The restorations, which are due to W-M, are made exempli gratia. For that 

of 1. 100 cf. ApoUon. Lex. κολωνός πάν ανάστημα της γηί' εστί δί nr κτλ. π^ά[ν\ ά[νάστημα is 

consistent with the vestiges, but they are extremely slight. The remark that the present 
tense in 1. 811 proves the poet to have been an eyewitness of what he describes is remark- 
able, though not cogent, for the description might depend on hearsay evidence ; it would 
have been more exact to say ' a contemporary '. 
loi. The quotation is from Υ 41. 

103—4. Cf. e.g. Schol. A Μύρινα 8e Άμαζόνοί όνομα, Strabo, p. 573 Μνρίνη: ην ίστορονσι 
μίαν elvai των ^Αμαζόνων, Eustath. Μύριννα κείται κα\ παρά Ανκόφρονι, λιγομίνη παρά τίνων Τεύκρου

ποΚνσκαρίστου η πολυκινητον. 

ιο6. It seems likely, as W-M suggests, that οπον was followed by an example, 
e.g. A 610. 

107. Restored by W-M. There is no σημύον nor corresponding note in A, though at 
Γ 16, the verse cited for comparison in the next line, the remark is made Ύρωσίν' άντΧ τον 

Ύρωων. πτωτικον το σχήμα' ταϊς δοτικαΐς yap άντΙ yfviK&v χρώνται οΊ ποιηταί. Ρ. Hawara Similarly 
lacks the σημύον. 

109—14. Schol. A has κορνθαίολοχ' όαΐόλλων την περικεφαλαίας, δ ε'ση κινών, δια τάς iv τω

TOii πολ,μοις. The third of these explanations is more akin than the first to the second 
interpretation m the papyrus,— where the restoration of course makes no pretence to

1. 819 ; at 1. 820 the papyrus is defective. 

The rest of the scholium relates to the construction of II. 819 sqq. : 'The sequence 
is . . .^ It is noticeable that there is no further remark on 1. 820 ; A has a diple and the

Α Similar interpretation was evidently given in the papyrus, though the precise wording is 
uncertain. There is no trace of writing between ]v and νοητεον, and it is therefore in- 
admissible to restore τό (Γη\μεΊο]ι, [Sti] νοητεον; the rather wide' space after [. . .^ may be 
partly due to the junction of two selides here. To read ?δω\κε]ν would make 1. 119 
abnormally short. The long blank interval in 1. 121 indicates that the sentence was 
complete at that point.

TOO THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 



1087. Scholia on Iliad vn. 

24-3 X 17-1 cm. Late first century b.c. Plate IV. 

The following text belongs like 1086 to an elaborate Homeric commentary, 
but one of a rather different order. 1086 is a product of the school of Aristar- 
chus, and is a more or less direct exposition of his teaching. 1087 on the other 
hand shoΛvs but the slightest traces of the Aristarchean tradition, which is 
perhaps to be recognized in no more than a single passage (11. 85-6, note). No 
references occur to the σημάα ; and it is significant that one of the citations from 
Homer contains a reading of Aristophanes and Zenodotus (11. 32-3). Another 
feature of these scholia, which in 1086 is much less conspicuous, is a tendency to 
learned disquisition. A long note, which might have been most interesting, on 
the subject of burial is unfortunately mutilated beyond recovery ; but a large 
part of the two more or less complete columns is occupied by a list of ' parony- 
mous ' words, illustrated by citations and references, and it is to the presence of 
this list that the papyrus owes its importance. Not only does the writer adduce 
several forms for which there is no other testimony, but he commonly supports 
his instances by stating where they were to be found, and thereby adds to the 
fragments of a number of Greek authors. Quotations for which the papyrus is 
the sole authority are given from Pindar, Euripides Temenus and Aegeus, 
Aeschylus Phineus, Sophocles Phineus /, Cratinus Malthaci, Archilochus, 
Xenophanes Silli, Antimachus Thebais, ' Leandrius ' (cf. note on 11. 44-5), Eupolis, 
Stesichorus Oresteia, Alcaeus, Hesiod and the Hesiodic Rtjukos Γάμο?, Leucon 
Phrateres, and Ananius. 

The τταρώννμα or derivative words here discussed are forms of the second 
declension having a nominative which is the same as the genitive of a cognate 
form belonging to the third declension, e.g. χρνσάοροί χρνσαόρον, which is parallel 
with χρνσάωρ χρνσάοροί. Treatises on τταρώννμα by Tryphon, Habron, and 
Apollonius Dyscolus are mentioned by Suidas, s. v. Ά-πολλωνιοί Άλeξavbpξvs, and 
are cited by Stephanus of Byzantium, s.vv. Άγάθη, αγυιά, 'ίβηρίαί, Σχοινοΰί. 
Several of the examples found in these excerpts appear also in the papyrus (cf. 
notes on 11, 23, 37-8), and from some similar theoretical treatise our anonymous 
author presumably drew his information. It is, however, doubtful whether any 
of the three grammarians named was his actual source. Tryphon, who flourished 
in the latter half of the first century B. c. (Suidas, s.v.), might perhaps have been 
utilized if the composition of these scholia were very little anterior to the date 
of the papyrus. But Tryphon may well have had his predecessors in this

particular field. Coincidences in the examples of -παρώνυμα do not occur in 
connexion with him, and even if they did they would not really count for much 
There was no doubt a good deal of repetition in grammatical works of the type 
under consideration, and the instances and quotations would tend to become to 
some extent stereotyped. 

The rather short columns, which lean over considerably to the right are 
written in a clear and neat semi-cursive of medium size. Archaic characteristics 
are less marked than in 1086, but the present papyrus is probably not much 
posterior, r and π especially are formed on an early pattern, and though some of 
the letters, e.g. v, would be consistent with a later date, they do not demand it. 
There are several points of similarity in this script to that of P. Brit. Mus. 133 
(Plate III in Classical Texts from the British Museum), which Kenyon attributes 
to the second century B.C. There too a ν approximating to the form found here 
is employed. On the whole I do not think that 1087 is subsequent to the reign 
of Augustus, and I should be inclined to place it before rather than after the 
turn of the century. Besides marginal paragraphi, both high and medial stops 
are used, but without any clear differentiation of value, and it is not always easy 
to be sure which position was intended. At the end of a note double dots 
commonly appear, as in 856. Accents are added in some of the words quoted 
in the long grammatical note, and occasionally elsewhere. Abbreviation is much 
less frequent than in 1086 ; ού^τω^), φτ,(σΟ, and 'αν[τ\ τον) are the only shortened 
forms occurring. Lemmata, when they commence a line, project by about two 
letters into the left margin ; if they occur within a line, then the line following is 
made to project.

1-5- This note, which apparently refers to 1. 74, is difficult to reconstruct from the 
damaged remains. The extant scholia do not help. 

2. πάλη is not satisfactory, apart from the fact that the omission of iota subscript is 
unusual in this papyrus, το δη could be read, but not πάλαι nor πάλω. 

3. απολνίσθαι cannot be read. At the end of the line τονγω, not τούτω, seems to 
be clear. 

4. ]νσ[ : the doubtful σ can be any round letter. ]v . ασ may be ]./σασ (-^σαι?), and the 
following ωσ is very uncertain. 

5. The supposed point after the second lacuna may be the tip of a letter. avrinaXos is 
hardly the natural synonym for πρόμο!, which is usually explained as equivalent to πρόμαχος, 
e. g. in Schol. A and ApoUon. £ex. ; moreover a supplement of five letters would be better 
than one of four. But there is no room for a suitable word if avA [τον ... is read, and 
that phrase would be likely to have been abbreviated, as in 1. 7. It may be noticed that 
Eustathius uses the word άντίπαΚο! in his discussion of the passage (p. 666), τ6 be tw άντίηάΚον 
άριστία πΐσύν θύόν τι νομίζα. 

7. Cf. Schol. A ΟΤΙ Ib'uus ω: περί ύτίρου. 

8. eno[i]eiT does not seem admissible, and [π]€πο[ι]θη is hardly adapted to the context.

supplement [epvaaiy is slightly long and perhaps the initial letter stood in 1. i o. The sup^ 
posed point in 1. 12 may be a vestige of the a of μηστωρα. 

13. Wilamowitz suggests fi\s ΐπίρωσιν, but this is hardly consistent with the remains, 
νπ(ρ\βο\η\ν (W— Μ) suits the lacuna rather better than νπ(ρ\οχη\ν.

indispensable here. Cf. Steph. Byz., S. v. Ίβηρίαι : άπ6 της γενικής "Ιβηροί fvuela, ώς της φύΚακοί

28-9. ΧαΚνβος is known as a Euripidean form from Ale. 980 and Fr. 472. 6, but this 
citation from the Temenus is new. 

3i-2 = Simonides, Fr. 32. 

32-3. α 38. The scholia state that Aristophanes and Zenodotus here read π€μ\Ι/αντ€, 
and Buttmann was no doubt right in his inference that they also read hiAnropov, which is 
found in Vat. Ottob. 308 and Vind. 307. πεμψανης 4νσκοπον other MSS. and edd. 

33-6. The form άρπαγος was known only from Schol. Dorv. Aristoph. P/u/. 800 and 
Arcadius, p. 102. 9, whence Dindorf describes it in Stephanus T/ies. as 2^. forma recentioris 
Graecismi. Only one certain citation of the Phineus of Aeschylus (Fr. 258) and one of the 
first Phineus of Sophocles (Fr, 641) were previously known. 

36. πολυττίδακοϊ is a well-supported variant in Homer, S 307, and elsewhere; it is also 
read e. g. in the H. in Ven. 54 and is found in Hesychius. 

37—8. Cf. Steph. Byz., S.V. Ίβηρίαι: "Ιβηρ "Ιβηρος 6 "ΐβηροί" αφ' ου πάρα Κονα8ράτω iv 
'Ρωμαϊκής χί\ιά8ος e ίστίν Ίβηρυισιν ούτως' και τοι Αίγυσί θ αμα και Ιβηροισι ποΧβμίοντίς. το αντο 
και "Αβρών iv παρωννμοις φησί. και αυτός "ΐβηρος τραγοπώγων ίν Μαλθακοί? ίΐρηται Κρατίνου ( = Fr. 

ΙΟΙ, Kock). If the papyrus is to be trusted, there must be an error here, and τραγοπώγων 
should be emended to τραγοπώγωνος ; αυτός also has occasioned difficulty. It is true that the 
form τραγοπώγωνος is not Otherwise attested, and not a little remarkable that "Ιβηρος and 
τραγοπώγωνος should have occurred in actual juxta-position. But to attribute the confusion 
to the papyrus and bring it into conformity with the text of Stephanus by some such 
alteration as τό "Ιβηρος, (ως) τό (^Ιβηρος) τραγοπώγων πάρα Κρατίνω is hardly justifiable. Perhaps, 
however, a καί has dropped out after "ΐβηρος. τρα\γοπ]ώγωνος would be a very uncertain 
reading apart from the passage of Stephanus, [γοπ] being rather cramped and the vestiges 
of some of the other letters exiguous ; but as it is, little doubt remains. 

38-9. The form ατμ^νος is found in Heysch., Eustathius, Od. p. 1750. 62, and 

AmmoniuS, S. v. θής, who says that it means οϋ μόνον 6 8οΰλος, άλλα κα\ δ ΰποτιταμίνος (λΐύθΐρος. 

That the word occurred in Archilochus was unknown. Was he the source of the anony- 
mous citation in Hesychius ατμ^νον οίτον ? 

39-40. λάοί has hitherto rested on the support of Soph. 0. C. 195 eV Άκρον λάου, on which 

the Schol. in L remarks άπό της λάος βστί παροξννομίνης (υθΐίας, γινομένης από γενικής της Χάος. 
(^Ομηρος λαός) υπό ριπής. οΰτως 'ΐίρω8ιανός ev τω e της καθόλου, Jebb foUowS Dindorf and 

Wecklein in substituting λαός for λάου, and hazards the guess that ' Herodian had perhaps 
no warrant besides this passage (of Sophocles) '. Grammarians had better information than 
what is commonly credited to them. The traditional λάου should in future be allowed 
to stand. W-M notes that the word is probably to be also recognized in Hesiod Fr. 115. 3 

λεκτους εκ γα'ιης λάους (λαοΰς Et. Gud. Et. Angel., άλίονς Strabo vii. p. 322, άλεας Rzach with 
Villebrun ; cf. Cramer, Anecd. Ox. i. 264. 27 'ϋσίο^ος 8έ παρά τό άλες τό σημαίνον τό άθροΰν, 
άλαός, λαός αφαιρέσει τοϋ α\ 

40-1. "Ερυκος is not a known form ΐοτ'Έρυξ, but the first letter is most probably « and 
the occurrence of the name in the works of Xenophanes is eminently natural. The present 
is the first reference to separate books of the Si//i, the attribution of which to Xenophanes 
by Strabo (p. 643) and others has occasioned much discussion. A careful review of the 
evidence is given by C. Wachsmuth in his Sillographi Graeci. He arrives at the sensible 
conclusion that the Silli of Xenophanes were a poem or series of poems in hexameters 
wherein various philosophers and poets were attacked ; and that they were so called by 
grammarians on account of their similarity to the Silli of Timon. Only one line is quoted 
expressly from the work (Schol. Aristoph. Equit. 406), but eleven other fragments are 
assigned to it by Diels, Poet. Phil. Fragmenta, pp. 39-41. 

41-3. "AiSoy: this is another new form.

55-6. For the form Τρώο? cf. the note on 1. 53. It must of course be a nominative 
and IS apparently equivalent to Τρώϊ, the mythical king of Troy, as in Malalas iv. Tros 
was the great grandson of Teucer. Τεύκρου δε Τράο^ does not occur in the extant remains 
of Hesiod ; but the name of the author, though quite suitable, is by no means certain. 

56-7. σωληνοί is otherwise unexampled. The scanty remnants of the lamboRrapher 
Ananius are mostly derived from Athenaeus. 

58-60. &γωρο! is given by Hesychius as an Aeolic form ; cf. Phot. Lex. &γωρο! κατά

and the use of the simple verb, though unusual in this sense, seems quite possible' 
ο €1/ I ... IS less likely. 

With regard to the accent, Theognost. 67. 17 and Etym. Magn. 470. 35 agree with 
the papyrus, while Herodian, ap. Eustath. p. 1825. 12, writes iWi.oi, which is commonly 
adopted. ^

a, o, or ω instead of δ. 

90-I. Verse 81 seems to have been divided into two lemmata, separated by a very 
short comment; or the scribe might be supposed to have made a mistake and to have

1088. Medical Receipts. 

23-2x41 cm. Early first century. 

The following series of medical receipts is written on the verso of 1086 in 
a cursive hand probably dating from the earlier part of the first century. Three 
columns are nearly entire, and there are traces of a fourth, but practically 
nothing of it remains. Col. i is preceded by a blank space considerably wider 
than the margins between the columns and therefore was presumably the 
commencement, the roll which contained the Homeric scholia having been 
subdivided before these prescriptions came to be inserted in it. They are 
a miscellaneous collection, including local applications for Λvounds and sores, 
leprosy, flow of blood, polypus, and to induce sneezing, and potions for quartan 
fever, liver-complaints, dropsy, insomnia, and convulsions (?). Papyri of this class 
are not infrequent ; cf. e. g. 234, P. Tebt. 273, P. Rylands 39-29 (d), Berl. Klas- 
sikertexte, iii. pp. 32-3. The writer, who was rather inaccurate, shows anoticeable 
fondness for r\ instead of et before another vowel ; he also has a curious datival 
form in I. 32.

8. άρ(στη{ι] is very doubtful, but I can find no other reading that yields any sense. 
The letters are more like αρσνηι or αρΐτηι. τ is comparable to the supposed τ of το(^ ) in 
1. 69 ; η has a taller first stroke than usual, like that of a φ or >//•, but neither of those letters

and άφρόνιτρον, pp. 416, 417. At the end of 1. 28 a horizontal stroke might be interpreted 
ks the sign for i obol, but the amount seems immaterial here, and a rather smaller dash at 
the end of the next line clearly has no such meaning.

1089. An Alexandrian Chronicle. 

25 X 14• I cm. Third century. 

The recto of this papyrus contains a fragment, too much mutilated to be 
worth reproduction, of a second-century land-survey. On the verso are remains 
of three columns, written in upright uncials, which may be assigned with 
probability to the third century. The hand is sufficiently well formed, though 
marked by no great regularity ; towards the ends of the lines there is a rather 
strong tendency to compression and reduction in the size of the letters. No 
stops occur nor other lection signs beyond the diaeresis. In one or two places 
marks of doubtful significance are inserted in the margin (11. 26, 32). 

Of Cols, i and iii only a few disconnected letters have survived, but the 
intermediate column, though also much damaged, is in its upper portion in fair 
preservation. It belongs to a narrative of certain events in which the principal 
actors are, on the one hand Flaccus, on the other Isidorus and Dionysius. The 
identity of the first two of these is immediately evident. Flaccus is no doubt 
the praefect L. Avillius Flaccus, the subject of Philo's diatribe ; and Isidorus 
must be the well-known Alexandrian gymnasiarch, one of the instigators of 
Flaccus in his oppression of the Jews, subsequently his accuser, and eventually, 
as the papyri have proved, himself a victim. Dionysius also may now be 
recognized in a hitherto obscure passage of the Adversus Flaccum. Philo 
describes the abettors and tools of Flaccus as Διονυσιοι, δημοκόποί, Αάμττωνίς, 
γραμματοκύψωΐξζ, Ίσίδωροι, σΓασιάρχαι, φίλοπράγμον€9, κακών ivperai, ταρα^ιπολιδίί

ii6 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

(Mangey, ii. p. 520). Mangey here proposed to read Διοζ^υσιοκολακβ?, with an 
allusion to the Sicilian tyrant, on the very insufficient ground that, while 
Lampon and Isidorus were familiar names, the history of the period had no 
record of an Alexandrian Dionysius. This criticism, which the structure of 
Philo's sentence is itself enough to condemn, is finally disposed of by the appear- 
ance of a Dionysius in the company of Isidorus and Flaccus. He, too, was 
obviously a prominent figure in local politics, and may be presumed to have 
been associated with Lampon and Isidorus in the anti-Semitic movement. 

Unfortunately the situation disclosed by the papyrus is not very clear, and 
our knowledge, which for the most part depends upon Philo, is too limited 
to throw much light upon it. According to Philo's account Isidorus, after having 
been in close relations with Flaccus, became estranged on finding himself less 
influential than he had imagined. He therefore endeavoured to stir up odium 
against the praefect, and by means of bribery brought about a demonstration 
against him at the Gymnasium. Some of the demonstrators were arrested and 
confessed that they were agents of Isidorus, who thereupon found safety in 
flight {Adv. Flaccum, pp. 537-8). No doubt he disappeared from the scene 
until the fall of Flaccus, which was not long delayed, enabled him to return. 
The episode described in the papyrus therefore belongs to the period prior to 
the exposure of Isidorus. Flaccus is represented as going to the Serapeum, i. e. 
the famous Alexandrian temple, having previously given certain secret instruc- 
tions. Isidorus accompanied by Dionysius and a woman named Aphrodisia, 
who is not otherwise known, then enter and are accosted by a certain yipaio^^ 
\v\io prostrates himself before Isidorus and begs him not to insist on making his 
way into the presence of Flaccus (/x^ βιαζον irpos το[ν] Φλ[ά]κκον, II. 27-38). 
Dionysius declines to be deterred (11. 38-42). Flaccus, who seems meanwhile to 
have been in concealment, thereupon approaches and engages with Isidorus in 
a conversation which the mutilated condition of the papyrus renders obscure 
(11. 42 sqq.), but towards the end (11. 56-9) relates to the payment of a sum of 
five talents. It would appear from the narrative that Dionysius was supposed 
to be in danger (cf 11. 48-9), and that Flaccus was setting a trap for him or 
Isidorus or both of them. But who then is the yepatos and what is the meaning 
of his intervention ? His own reference in 1, ^6 to the yipovm strongly suggests 
that the term yepatos here, as occasionally elsewhere (e. g. Dittenberger, 
Or. Gr. htscr. 751. i), has the technical meaning of 'elder'; and the body of 
elders to which this yepatos belonged was presumably the council which at this 
period presided over the Jews of Alexandria, and of which Flaccus, as Philo 
relates, had thirty-eight members publicly scourged {Adv. Flaccum, pp. 527-8). 
If the yipaio^ was a Jewish elder, the emphasis laid by him on his presence

in the temple of Serapis (11. 33-4) is readily understood : that was not the place 
where he would be expected to be found. But the part which he here plays 
becomes very surprising. He does not seem to be acting as the tool of Flaccus, 
but to be animated by concern and regard for Dionysius. Is it possible that 
a common opposition to the praefect brought about a temporary reconciliation 
between the party of Isidorus and the Jews ? In subsequently becoming the 
accuser of Flaccus, Isidorus may in a sense be regarded as fighting the battle 
of his former enemies. But the truce, if truce there was, did not last, for it was 
as an anti-Semite that Isidorus was himself sentenced by Claudius. 

There is indeed small chance of success, without further and less ambiguous 
data, in following the tortuous paths of Alexandrian intrigue during this stormy 
time. But the interest with which the policy and fate of Isidorus and his 
fellows were evidently regarded by their compatriots, encourages the hope of 
fresh accessions to the evidence. An account of his trial together with Lampon 
is preserved in the well-known papyrus fragments at Berlin and Cairo of which 
a revised text has recently been published by Wilcken in Abhandl. d. Phil.- Hist. 
Kl. d. K. Sachs. Gesellsch. d. Wissensch. xxvii. No. 23. That their memory 
was kept green is clear from the allusion made by another Alexandrian, 
Appianus, when he was himself in a similar position, as reported by 33. The 
present text deals with an earlier stage in Isidorus' career, and is not necessarily 
connected with the documents concerning his trial and sentence or that of other 
Alexandrian citizens. The relation between those various documents is itself 
still a matter of uncertainty. Deissmann suggested that they belonged to a 
history of Alexandrian anti-Semitism {Theol. Literaturz. 1898, 602-6), Reinach 
to a chronicle of the vicissitudes of Alexandrian gymnasiarchs [Rev. des Etudes 
juives, xxxvii. p. 224), while others do not regard them as parts of any single 
whole. So much, however, seems agreed, that these ' heathen acts of Martyrs ' 
(Bauer, Archiv, i. pp. 29-47) were written from the Alexandrian-Greek point 
of view, and it is highly probable that their real motive was hostility to the 
Roman Government rather than to the Jews. The Alexandrians were anti- 
Semitic because the Jews were pro-Roman (cf. Wilcken, /. c, pp. ']^6-η and 825, 
where further references are given). It is natural to refer 1089 to the same class 
of what may be roughly described as * nationalist ' literature. Perhaps this is 
even some of the setting in which an account of the ' martyrdom ', as recounted 
in the Berlin and Cairo papyri, was embedded. That, however, is quite pro- 
blematical, and a negative answer would leave unprejudiced the view that this 
new Isidorus text represents ideas and interests similar to those of its prede- 
cessors, and that it originated and was current in similar circles.

18-19. These two lines are closer together than they should be.

33. δ[€]σ-π[οτ]α is a very doubtful reading ; π and α are quite uncertain, and [or] barely

I20 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

34. Σα[ρά]π•ιο[ί], which was suggested by Wilcken, sufficiently accords with the 
ambiguous traces. 

35. σνν is very insecure, but appears on the whole more suitable than ovv or ovs. 
36-7. With the reading adopted, the sense would seem to be ' What do we gain by 

your going ? ', but I cannot identify the principal verb. The termination may be -ομίΐ/ 
or -αμ(ν, hardly -ωμ^ν, and before this there is probably a φ (not ψ). « may be read in 
place of η after θΐντος, but ίί μη ίΚαττον is not satisfactory. In 1. 36 η could well be η, and 
the preceding ν may be μ. If τί is right, [?λ]^ο«] αν might serve. 

38. τί'ψοι/]: cf. 33. II. 

39. 6ύ5€τ(€)ίί : or possibly ev deo'is or θ(οί σ . . ., hardly eu df\{e)is. 

42. (]πη\θ€ν•. ά]7Γη\θ(ν secms less appropriate, since the presence of Dionysius (1. 51) 
indicates that the encounter of Flaccus and Isidorus took place on the same spot, not at 
some later time. 

43. [ιδ"ώ[ΐ' is suggested by the context and the space, but the traces are barely 
recognizable. 

45. Between e and tvdv are two upright strokes Λvhich would suit π ov μ; or the 
doubtful e may be read by the help of one of these strokes as Θ, θκυΐΐν. ti, €τ, or η are 
possible in place of the preceding «σ. 

47. Apparently not κ(\[€^/ιω. 

48. [8ο'ϋ\ον is not satisfactory ; if there were two letters between the supposed υ and v, 
they must have been narrow ones. The υ may be χ. The size of the lacunae at the 
beginnings of the lines from this point onwards is doubtful. There is a tendency in 
this column for the commencements of the lines to advance not, as often happens, to the left, 
but to the right ; and if the slant shown by 11. 34-48 was continued uninterruptedly, άλλα 
would be the first word of 1. 61. But it is not easy to restore 11. 55-60 on that hypothesis, 
and I have therefore assumed that the progress to the right was arrested. If [Φλάκ]κο£ 
in 1. 55 is correct, the tendency must even have been slightly reversed. 

51. fh(v is of about the right length, but it is not at all clear that Dionysius here 
intervenes, and Flaccus may still be the speaker. 
55. There is perhaps nothing lost before λο[. 

Frs. 1-3. Fr. i. 6-7 and 2. 2-3 might perhaps be combined so as to read ]fiv[ and 
]ονη[, but the appearance of the other side of the papyrus is rather against this. It is hardly 
certain that Fr. 3 belongs to 1089.

III. EXTANT CLASSICAL AUTHORS 



1090. Hesiod, Opera. 

32-3 X 1 1-4 cm. Late first century. Plate V. 

One column, originally containing from ^^ to 40 lines, written in a good- 
sized round hand probably towards the close of the first century. There is much 
similarity of style between this hand and those of 220 and 844, 1090 being 
perhaps rather the earliest of the group. A more or less definite terminus ante 
quern is provided by a fragment of a mathematical treatise inscribed in second- 
century cursive on the verso. No accents, breathings, or marks of elision occur ; 
the one example of a stop, a point placed well above the line (1. 268), may be 
due to a second hand which has added a few corrections or variants. There 
is a deep margin of 7-4 cm. at the top of the column : that at the bottom is also 
partially preserved, but the last few lines have disappeared owing to the decom- 
position of the papyrus. 

Notwithstanding inaccuracies, which the corrector has not always eliminated 
(cf. 11. 269-71), the text, as might be expected from its early date, is of some 
interest. Three small emendations proposed by modern critics are supported 
(11. 263, 264, 268) ; and there are some other novel readings, which may be 
correct (11. 257, 284-5). An agreement with the Rainer papyrus of the fourth 
century and several ancient citations against the other MSS. is noticeable 
in 1. 278. Erroneous iotas adscript are ignored ia the collation below.

inserted by some one who wished to cancel that letter; but the c of σκολι^ω[ν is certainly 
untouched.

a circumflex accent on α\υτωι, but an accent would more naturally have been written to the

1091. Bacchylides, Dithyrambs.

Remains of one column containing part of Bacchylides' Ode xvi (xvii). To 
the top of the column is afifixed a vellum σίλλνβοί or label bearing the title 
Βακχυλίδου /διθύραμβοι. This roll was therefore limited to the Dithyrambs and 
did not include the Epinician or other poems, a fact which supports the view of 
Blass {Bacchyl. pp. v-vi) that the British Museum fragments were derived from 
two rolls, rather than, as Kenyon supposed, from one. The corresponding 
column of the British Museum papyrus (Π) has some small lacunae, and the 
present second copy is not only an independent witness to the existing text 
but in a few passages usefully supplements it. Lines 50 and ^-^, are now 
completed, the former in accordance with a conjecture of Jurenka, the latter not 
quite corresponding with any editorial restoration. An emendation of Blass in 
1. 6a and his transposition of that verse are confirmed, while on the other hand 
one or two further slight alterations adopted by him do not receive support 



124 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

(11. 51, 58, 66, 69, 75, 116). In general the agreement between Π and 1091 is 
close, extending to the arrangement of the verses, in regard to which only one 
small discrepancy occurs (1. 51) ; and there is but a single difference of reading 
that amounts to a serious variant (1. 70 ττανταρκ^α for -navhipKia). Π is the more 
careful and accurate, the writer of 1091 being rather liable to small graphical 
errors, though some of these have been subsequently eliminated. His semi- 
cursive script is also in strong contrast to the formal uncials of Π ; it is round, 
upright, and clear, but makes no pretence to calligraphy. It may be dated to 
about the middle of the second century. Punctuation, accents, and other aids 
have been freely inserted by a second hand, which has also made some cor- 
rections in the text. A few of the signs, however, seem to be original, — the 
diaeresis in 1. 71, the mark of elision in the same line and perhaps that in 1. 64, 
and the short curved stroke placed above the letters instead of, as usual, below 
them (cf. e.g. 1082. ii. 18) to connect the component parts of the compound 
word ττοταινίαν in 1. 51. The accentuation is similar to that of 1082. Examples 
of σίλλνβοί intended both for literary and non-literary rolls have been previously 
found (e. g. 301, 381, 957), but the present, so far as I am aware, is the first 
Avhich has survived in its primitive position. It measures 2•ι χ ιο•ι cm. and is 
stuck on to the verso so that the edge of the papyrus coincides with the initial 
letters of the title, which is written on the outer side. When the MS. was rolled 
up, these initial letters must have been concealed, but enough would remain 
uncovered for easy identification. This label seems to have been attached at 
a period rather later than that to which the manuscript itself belongs, the sloping 
uncials of the title suggesting the third century. It is, moreover, a palimpsest, 
and the original hand, again a sloping uncial, which is visible on the side inscribed 
with the title, is unlikely to be earlier than the latter part of the second century, 
if indeed so early. Portions of three lines are legible, apparently hexameters, but 
I have failed to identify them.

50. χολα)[ Π (P. Brit. Mus.), χολα)[σατ' ητορ Κ., Jcbb, χολώ[^?; Keap Β. who in the corre- 
sponding verse of the second epode (1. 116) altered pobois ίρΐμνόν into ρόδοίί ^Ιρμίνον. K.'s 
reading proves to have been nearer the truth, and the tradition of the MS. at 1. 1 16 is upheld. 
There is no analogy for the intransitive use of χο\ονν, and the subject must be άρά-αιχμοί 
ηρως, which is readily understood from 1. 47. 

51. [v\pmvt : so Π ; ΰφανΐ needlessly Β. In π μητιν stands in 1. 52. 

53. μ€ νυιι[φα Confirms Jurenka's conjecture, ^[e κονρ]α Β., [μ' άλαθίως] Κ. with 
Palmer; Β. was correct in reading the vestige of the final letter of the verse as a. 

54. T(K(v : t€k[ Π. Since the corresponding syllable in the second epode is short, the 
V ΐφΐλκυστικόν is better omitted. The supposed low stop after τΐκεν is just above the dot 
referred to in the next note, and may be due to accident. 

55. The correction is by the second hand. A misplaced mark of elision after the μ 
of προπ(μπ is rather fainter than that after the π and has perhaps been partially erased. 
There is an unexplained dot above the line where the a of θοαν would have stood ; it does 
not suit an accent, and is probably accidental. 

58. Ύροιζψια is the spelling of Π; B. writes Ύροζηνία. 

02. κόσμον βαθ(ίης Π, which between this verse and χ^φος άγλαόι/ reads St/cav θράσίΐ σώμα 

πατρός [e]s δόμου:. Β. inserted (κ before βαθΐία: and put 8ικων θράσΐΐ κτλ. after 1. 62, thereby 
obtaining a closer metrical correspondence and improving the construction. These 
alterations, which were accepted by Jebb, are now confirmed. Line 63 has been accidently 
left out, but by reading the iic restored by B. 1091 shows that 1. 62 corresponds to 1. 128, 
not to 1. 129. The probability of Jebb's suggestion, that the dislocation was caused by an 
omission of 1. 63, which was subsequently supplied in a wrong position, is also demonstrated. 

66. [ai/a]^[i]/3pfi'Tai : SO Π. K., B., and jebb all substitute άναξιβρόντας, Κ. remarking 
that the MS. reading is an example of the confusion of e an ο in the papyrus. It is now 
evident that the t is no individual vagary, and the spelling is quite defensible. There is 
analogy for the interchange of ο and e in Aeolic, e.g. edvvas for oBvvas (Greg. Cor. p. 597, 
Schaefer) and npes for προς according to Joannes Gram. 244 b ; moreover, βρόντοι is directly 
attested by Hesychius, a fact which the editors of Bacchylides appear to have overlooked. 

67. αμΐμπτον : αμα,τρον for αμίτρον Κ., αμ(πτον for αμ^μπτον Β., whose reading is proved 
to have been correct. The facsimile does not support Jebb's assertion that ' the sixth 
letter is clearly ρ '. 

68-9. The readings of Π are upheld. B. in his second edition adopted Housman's 

φιλον , , . παϊ8α. 

7ο. πανταρκΐα : navbepKea Π, a more difficult reading (and therefore perhaps preferable), 
since πανΒερκψ has elsewhere only an active sense. Aeschylus calls Darius πανταρκης 

βασιλΐύς {Pe/'S. 855) ', cf. Hesych. πανταρκία' πασι βοηβόν. πανταρκης• 6 πασιν αυταρκών. In 

the present passage the word would mean ' all-sufficient ' and would be apposite enough. 



1091. EXTANT CLASSICAL AUTHORS 127 

71. Γ : 1. ff. The diaeresis over ν of θυμαρμ[ΐνον is unintelligent. 

72. xeipas, the original reading, is that of Π, which also gives πβ'τασσβ. As thus 
written the verse has a long syllable more than the three corresponding lines, an irregularity 
which K. removed by emending to χΰρ€ π4τασ(, while others have preferred niraJ'e χ€~φαί. 
Β. in his first edition considered the metre of this ode too obscure for a departure here from 
the tradition, while in his second he transposed xelpas and neravae. But it is now seen that 
tradition was not stable, and the corrector's deletion of the final f of xecpas anticipates in 
some sense the emendation of K. x^'pe πίτασσε would give a closer strophic correspondence. 

75. βλ(π(ΐ arose from a lipography ; 1. βλ^πας with Π. The emendations by which it has 
been sought to give regularity to the metre ((σΰ) τάδβ Κ. with Jebb, έβλεπα Β. ed. 2 with 
Richards) receive no support, though Piatt's τάδ' {ipa) is not excluded. 

76. συν is an error for συ, correctly written in Π. For ορνυσ{ο) Π has opvv, which may 
be preferred as the rarer form. 

76-8. It is not quite certain how these lines were divided, but [βρο] and [τοι] would 
barely fill the space at the beginnings of 11. 77 and 78, and the probabilities are that the 
arrangement coincided, as elsewhere except in 1. 51, with that of n. 

91-2. This small detached fragment from the bottom of a column seems to be 
rightly identified. Both the hand and the texture of the papyrus are closely similar. If 
it is correctly placed, the height of the roll was about 30 cm. 

ΣίλΧνβος. The mark of elision in the first line of the original text is doubtful and the 
last word may be δα///. In 1. 2 Ελ^νη can of course be divided ίλ(ν ή. 



1092. Herodotus ii. 

Height 23-1 cm. Late second century. 



Plate V (Col. ix). 



The following group of fragments from the Second Book of Herodotus is 
of rather more respectable compass than the Herodotean papyri which have 
hitherto been published, whether from Oxyrhynchus (18, 19, 695) or elsewhere 
(P. Rylands 55, and a Munich papyrus in Archiv i. p. 471). It extends from 
chapter 154 to chapter 175, though some of the pieces are very small and the 
gaps extensive. Perhaps more scraps of this roll will eventually make their 
appearance, since 1092 is derived from the same large find as 1082-3, and 
moreover was in the company of another fragmentary text written in a hand 
which in the minor samples is practically indistinguishable from that of the 
Herodotus. Meanwhile I print so much as I have up to the present been able 
to identify. The extremely mutilated state in which this papyrus proves to be 
is not of happy augury for the numerous other MSS. which have still to be 
dealt with from the same source. 

The small neat uncials are of the sloping oval type and may be referred to 



128 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

the latter part of the second century ; they are more careful and regular than 
those of the Oxyrhynchus Hellenica (841), and are perhaps rather earlier in 
date. Though of no great height, the columns, which are strongly inclined to 
the right, contained about 41 or 42 lines each. Punctuation is effected by high 
stops, inserted perhaps by the original scribe ; they are accompanied by short 
blank spaces and the usual paragraphs A second, but no doubt practically 
contemporary, hand is apparently responsible for a semicursive entry at the top 
of Col. ix, where a different version of a passage has been copied at length. 
To this writer may be due a few other small corrections and insertions, but since 
there is no difference in the colour of the ink no certainty is here attainable. 

The MSS. of Herodotus are divided into two groups known as the Florentine, 
which is headed by AB, and the Roman, represented by RSV. As might be 
expected from the analogy of other papyri, 1092 does not consistently support 
either family, but agrees here with one and there with the other. Readings 
of RSV occur in v. 6, vi. 6, viii. 24, ix. 32, of the Florentine group in i. 2, 3, vii. 
I, 5, viii. 22, ix. 44, x. 5 ; in viii. 7 the papyrus occupies a position midway 
between the two. The text thus exhibits a stage prior to the differentiation of 
the families as we know them. But there were already divisions, for, as has been 
mentioned, an alternative version of several lines in chapter 162 has been inserted 
' from certain other copies ' at the top of Col. ix ; and occasional variants have 
been recorded elsewhere (cf. v. 5 and notes on viii. 3, 12). In omitting άτταρτί 
in V. 8 the papyrus is in agreement with the MSS. as against some other 
authorities. Readings apparently not otherwise attested are found in vi. 15, viii. 
3, 12, ix. 1-5 (cf. ix. 12), 46, xii, 11-12, and xv. 4, the last confirming a commonly 
accepted correction of Abresch.

i. 2. re : so the older MSS., om. RSV. H(ude) prints re in brackets. 

3. χώρους : χρόνους RSV. This fragment comes from near either the top or the end of 
a column, but since the papyrus is broken immediately above and below the letters of 11. i 
and 3, the point cannot be definitely decided. My numeration of the columns proceeds 
on the second alternative, and if that is correct, 1. 3 was probably the last of the column. 

V. I. The papyrus seems to have agreed with C in reading be (so H.) ; δ^ other MSS. 
Only the bases of the letters remain, but these on the whole suit δε eXo[ better than δ»; ίλ[ , 
2 sqq. A hypothetical division of the lines is adopted. 

5. καλΐνμίνην, V. l. καλΐομΐνψ : the MSS. here apparently agree on the latter spelling. 

6. οριζοντο\ς : so PRSV ; ονρίζοντοί Others, and H. 

8. χίλιοι : so the MSS. H. inserts άπαρτί before χίλιοι on the authority of Bekker, 
Anecd. 418, Schol. Aristoph. Plut. 388, Suidas, s.v. 

vi. I. This line was probably the first of the column. 

5. των. 2)1' PRSV. 

6. (ίσι 8ηλοι: so RSV; (πίδηλοι other MSS., H. 

7. Σ]υρο[ισι could also be read with ABCP. 

9. Μαγ8]ωλωι: Μαγ^ολωι (SV) is equally possible, but Μα7δ]αλωι (R Lex. Vind. 165) 
is unlikely. 

15• α^τταντα: πάντα RSV, τα πάντα Other MSS., Η. 

vii. I. και is omitted in RSV. 

3. αγων[ι\ζ(σθαι : SO H. with most MSS. ; άγωί'ίσασθαι RV. 

4. ονΓτω : τοΰτο S. 

5. ουδ(\μιαν ; ovte μίην RSV. 

viii. 3. The Jv at the end of this line is preserved on the edge of the papyrus in the 
margin of Col. ix. It is too close to the beginnings of the lines of that Column to be the 
normal conclusion of a line, nor is there in the text an available final ν followed by a stop. 
I can therefore only suppose that ]v represents an alternative reading enclosed, as often, 
between medial dots ; perhaps (λάσων was a variant on (λων or vice versa, though no such 
variant is known, and (λών would be the regular Herodotean form. 

7. [πα^ρ ^ωυτον : e of (ωντον is represented only by an ambiguous vestige, which could 
just as well belong to an i, but this would leave no room for the e. R similarly has τταρ' αυτόν, 
SV παρ' αντων ; ττβρι βωυτό ι/ Other MSS., Η. π^ρί is Certainly the natural preposition here, 
and παρά may have come in from άγαγύν παρ" ΐωυτόν just below, though the analogy of 
expressions like Xen. Cyrop. i. 4. 18 pivnv παρ' ίαυτόν might be used in its 'support. 
Nearly all MSS. have την νϊν παρ' tpe ίοΰσαν Βύναμιν in Hdt. viii. 140 (ί'μοί Η. with Ρ). 

12. What appears to be a final ]e stands, like ]i^ at the end of 1. 3, in the margin of the 
next column. It is not so near to the beginnings of the lines as the ]v is, but is nevertheless 
rather further out than would be expected, even in a line of more than the average length ; 
and since there is no e in the text hereabouts with which it can be readily identified, this 
may be another instance of a marginal variant.

it was found * in certain copies ' ; for ον{τως) ev τ^ισιν) a[XX(oiy) cf. e. g. 874. The second 
version differs considerably from the ordinary text, which coincides with what stands in 
11. 9-13; it has, however, left no trace in the mediaeval MSS. In one respect it seems 
clearly wrong, for Απριης does not harmonize with προστα\ξαι. This may be merely an 
isolated slip, but the accusative participles certainly produce rather longer supplements than 
would be expected in 11. 3-4, especially in 1. 4, where the lacuna is of the same extent as 
that at the beginning of the line below. Perhaps, therefore, the writer was consistent and 
80VS and ίχων followed, though unless something essential has been omitted this construction 
could not be justified. 

9-13. See the previous note. ιτροσταξ]αι πΐριτα[μΐΐν is an inversion of the order found 
in the MSS. Cf. 1. 4. 

30. ησα[ν : SO CPRSV ; 1. ηισαν. 

32. μωψΐμφι, \vhich has been corrected from μωνμΐμφι, may be merely a misspelling of 
Μωμΐμφι, though it is likely enough that the letters were understood to be divided δ^^ζωι 
Μ(μφι, as in RSV. δη Μίμφι other MSS.

X. I. διαραιρ]ήτα[ι suits the space better than 8ιη]ρηται (SV). 
5. t[ovs : so H., with AB, &c. ; om. RSV. 

xii. 1-5. The division of these lines, which is calculated on the basis of the following 
fragment (II. 8-16) is likely to be approximately correct. 
3. Tfws] : or perhaps ΐως\, with RSV. 

II— 12. τη\ι\ παίτρωιηι ταφηι η Se earV I τΐ/σι πατρωίησι ταφΐ]σί. ai δε ίίσι JVISS. There IS 

not room for τη[σι], still less τη[ισι], and τη[ι] has been followed in the supplement to its 
logical conclusion. But of course τηι may have been no more than a clerical error, and 
πατρωιηισι κτλ. have succecded. No safe inference can be drawn from the size of the lacuna 
at the beginning of 1. 12. The plural is used e. g. in iv. 71, v. 63. 

14. The papyrus may have had eiaiovrt, with RV. 

38-9. Line 38 is slightly shorter than the average and the point of division is uncertain, 
but no arrangement will admit of the addition of και €ργασμ(νη, which is read by most MSS. 
after κίκοσμημΐνη. The two words are also omitted by Athenag. Legat. 28. κα\ ίρμασμίνη

dating from about the middle of the second century. The columns, which are 
very narrow, vary in length from 27 to 31 lines ; a deep margin is left both 
above and below them. Short lines are filled as usual by a conventional sign, 
which here has the shape of the figure 7. The text has been revised by a 
corrector, and to him are probably due one or two accents and in considerable 
measure the elaborate punctuation, for which stops of three kinds, high, medial, 
and low, are employed, as e. g. in 844. Their use, however, is not invariably 
accurate, for a medial point sometimes appears where one in the high position 
would be expected ; there is a clear instance of this, e.g., in xv. 34. A symbol 
resembling the letter s is placed after the word preceding the entry μαρτυρεί or 
μαρτυρία (xii. 19, xiv. ii). The text of this papyrus, as of so many others, 
shows mixed relationship ; there is, however, some tendency to agree with S, 
by common consent the best MS. of Demosthenes. Coincidences with S occur 
at V. 5-6, viii. 14, ix. 2, x. 6, 20-1, xi. i, xii. 26, xiv. 13, against which have to be 
set iv. 7 ( = Q), vi. 21-2, viii. 28 (= FQ), xii. 10-11, xiii. 10 ( = FQr), xiv. 15, 
XV. 23 (=r). Of the few peculiar variants (v. 7-8, ix. 6, xii. 17, 21, xiv. 5-6) 
none are striking ; two of these (xii. JJ, xiv. ^-6) proceed from the second hand.

Pr. 5. This fragment might be supposed to be part of § 14 πολλά y\ap [(στ ανθρωττιν\α, 
but this cannot be reconciled with the τ (or π) of the next column, which would belong to 
about the twentieth line from the end, and there is no initial τ or π within two lines 
of the twentieth from the end of Col. viii. 

Pr. β. Apparently not vi. 8-9. 

Pr. 8 does not appear to suit either x, 26 or xiv. 5. It is hardly certain that the 
fragment belongs to this MS., or even which way up it should be read. 



1094. Demosthenes, De Falsa Legatmie. 

17x6 cm. Fifth century. 

A fragment from the upper part of a vellum leaf, containing on the verso 
portions of §§ 274-5, on the recto portions of §§ 279-80, of the De Falsa Lega- 
tione. It is clear from the extensive lacuna between 11. 23 and 24 that the leaf 
included more than one column ; and we have the alternatives of supposing that 
there were two columns, implying a tall and narrow page of about ^^ (^t least) χ 
20 cm., or three columns, which would give a squarer page measuring some 
28 cm. across and, if the lower margin was as deep as the upper one, of 
approximately the same height. The former is perhaps the likelier shape, but 
in any case this was a large and handsome codex. The script is a sloping 
uncial of medium size, carefully finished and with rather strongly marked con- 
trasts of light and heavy strokes ; it may date from the fifth century. Stops in 
two positions occur, inserted apparently by the original hand. There is a well- 
defined vertical ruling down the margin of the recto, but traces of horizontal 
rulings are only to be distinguished in places. 

No particular aiiiinities are traceable in the text, which is inferior in quality 
to that of 1093. A conjecture of Dobree is supported in 1. 38.

10Θ5. [ISOCRATES,] Ad Demonicum. 

25-6 X 8-5 cm. Fourth century. 

This is a leaf from a papyrus book, complete at the top and bottom but 
broken at the side, so that about half the letters in each line are lost. It is 
inscribed in a clear semicursive hand of medium size, and probably of Ihe fourth

century. Stops in three positions occur, apparently added by the original scribe, 
to whom a rough breathing in 1. 47 also seems to be due ; but a few accents are 
differentiated by a rather darker coloured ink than that of the text, which is of 
a brownish shade. 

Isocrates papyri have not as a rule been distinguished for good qualities 
(cf. e. g. 844), and in particular their chief representative for the Ad Demoniaim, 
P. Berlin 8935, which is attributed to the second century, displays an extra- 
ordinary divergence of tradition. 1095 follows the normal type of text and is on 
the whole a creditable witness. As might be anticipated, there are occasional 
coincidences with the deteriores (11. 3-4, 17), but agreements with the superior 
group of MSS., of which the chief is the Codex Urbinas (Γ), predominate. In 
the collation appended below, which is based on E. Drerup's edition, I do not 
include unsupported readings of the eccentric Berlin papyrus. Another papyrus 
at Strassburg is available for comparison only in § 45.

ΙΟΘβ. ISOCRATES, Panegyricus AND De Pace. 

10x7-3 cm. Fourth century. 

A practically complete though much wrinkled and discoloured leaf of thin 
vellum, containing the conclusion of the Panegyricus and the beginning of the 
De Pace, separated by the titles of the two orations. The measurements of 
the leaf are similar to those of 1080 ; it bears no decipherable number, but this 
must have been a rather bulky little volume, consisting of at least 150 such 
leaves. The handwriting is a well-formed upright uncial, of medium size, 
belonging to the so-called biblical type and attributable to the fourth century ; 
some accompanying cursive documents ranged in date from the third century to 
the fifth. Corrections have been made in blacker ink by a second hand, which 
has also added stops in three positions, occasional breathings, &c. Textually 
there is little to remark beyond the usual absence of well-defined affinities to 
mediaeval MSS.: an agreement with Γ in 1. 14 is immediately followed in 1. 19 by 
a * vulgate ' (Λ) reading. No comparison is possible with the British Museum 
papyrus of the De Pace, since the commencement of that copy is lost. My 
collation depends on the edition of Blass.

1097. Cicero, De Imp. Cn. Pompei AND In Verrem II. i. 

15.4 X 8.4 cm. Fifth century. Plate VI (recto). 

Two fragments from Egypt of the Pro Plancio, on vellum, were published 
last year by S. de Ricci {Melanges Chatelain, pp. 442-7)^ to be followed a few 
months ago by a papyrus of the Second Oration against Catilina (P. Rylands 61), 
and still more recently by another of In Verrem II. i (ed. F. Ramorino in 
Papiri d. Soc. Ital.). A fourth Ciceronian fragment now makes its appearance. 
It is a portion of a leaf from a papyrus book, containing the conclusion of the 
speech De Imperio Cn. Pompei and the commencement of the Actio Secunda 
against Verres. The script is a small and upright half-uncial, with some 
tendency to a more cursive style, especially towards the ends of lines ; the 
linked form of / with the cross-bar at an angle and continued to form the base 
of the next letter is occasionally employed, e. g. in 1. 22 anctoritate, Greek 
documents of the fifth century were found in the company of this papyrus and 
to that century it is itself suitably referred. With the commencement of the 
Verrine oration the hand becomes rather heavier, and very likely the new speech 
was begun on another day or with a different pen. The ink throughout is of 
the brown colour common at the period. The lines are long, and the leaf when 
complete must have measured some 18 cm. across, the column of writing having 
a width of about 13-5 cm. With an allowance of 5 cm. for the margin at the top 
and bottom, the height of the leaf may be estimated at some 29 cm., the propor- 
tions being thus very much the same as those of 1011. A great deal can be got 
into a page of this size, with small writing and closely packed lines ; and a 
further economy of space was attained by the abbreviation or contraction of certain 
common words. For punctuation a single high point was used, accompanied by 
a short interval before the next letter, e. g. 1. 62. 

In the text of this papyrus the chief point of interest is its relation to the 
Harleianus (H). Noteworthy agreements with that manuscript occur in 11. 12, 
28, and 31, in the two latter passages against all other authorities. On the 
other hand 1097 and Η are opposed in 11. 18, 21, 4^, and 44• The affinity 
between the two, therefore, seems to be weaker than that between Η and the 
Turin palimpsest. Readings peculiar to the papyrus are limited to two slight 
variations in the order of words (11. 1^-6, 42-3)» an apparently erroneous 
addition in 1. 29, a fairly evident interpolation in 1. 58, and the insertion of viri, 
which is of very questionable value, in 1. 13. The collation given below is based 
on the Oxford editions of Clark and Peterson, supplemented occasionally by

are not noticed.

abbreviated, though written out in 1. 19.

25-6. illu7n\ unum : unum ilium MSS. deltgistis is also the spelling of T. 

28. istis : so Η : its T, his Ε dett. 

29. qua[r\e'. om. MSS. The Avord may have come in from a failure to recognize 
that vos . . . attulistis belonged to the protasis; or perhaps, as Clark suggests, it is 
a corruption of Quirites, the abbreviation of which was frequently misunderstood. We 
might then suppose that the Quirites which Η inserts in 1. 30 stood earlier in the papyrus. 

30. The addition of Quirites with Η is probable in view of the size of the lacuna, but 
of course not certain ; cf. the preceding note. 

31. animi virtues \ so H, Clark; virtutes antmi oihox^. 

41. quidquid: so MSS. with the exception of H, which has si quid (adopted by Clark). 

42-3. graiiam \bonam : bonam gratiam MSS. It is improbable that bonam was left 
out entirely, since this would leave the supplement in 1. 43 abnormally short. That in 
1. 42, on the other hand, is rather longer than would be expected, and perhaps ego was 
omitted, as in one of the dett. 

44. vesiris is omitted in H. 

47-8. The title of the speech following as well as of the one preceding seems to 
have been given here ; cf. e. g. 1096. 4-5 and 1011. 90-1. 

52. The apparent shortness of the supplement may be explained by the repetition of 
the letter m. 

53. α of aut is considerably enlarged. 

55. It seems clear \}c^\.paratus was not omitted as in D, &c. 

58. ac deliberaverai, which the MSS. omit, has doubtless come in wrongly from 1. 51. 

60. Why the a οϊ plane was written above the line is not clear. 

61. The supplement is quite long enough without enim after neque (so D, &c.) even if 
popuhts was abbreviated. 

64. isiius : so ρ Schol. Gronov. and dett. ; illius others, Peterson. The initial supple- 
ment is four or five letters shorter than would be expected. 



1098. Vergil, Aeneid ii. 

5-2 X 20•8 cm. 

Fourth or fifth century. Plate VI (verso). 

Examples of Latin MSS. in square capitals are scarce, and this small 
fragment from the second book of the Aeneid, though textually of no value, 
has a palaeographical interest. The script is not particularly large, but it has 
the roundness and breadth characteristic of the type. Hands of this kind are 
attributed to the fourth or fifth century, and there is no reason to put this 
specimen any later. They may indeed go back to a somevi'hat earlier period ; 
cf. Wessely, Stud. Pal. i. App. The fragment is part of a leaf of thin vellum, 
which was ruled horizontally and vertically in the usual way with a hard point. 
When complete the page must have been fairly tall, the column consisting of some 
twenty-three lines. The text has been revised by a corrector whose blacker ink is 



1098. EXTANT CLASSICAL AUTHORS 159 

easily distinguishable from the brown of the first hand. He also added occasional 
marginal notes (1. 4a), inserted some stops in the middle position, and touched 
up others which he already found there. He was not, however, responsible for 
the marginalia on the recto, which are inscribed in small half-uncials in an ink 
of the same colour as that of the text and may be attributed to the original 
writer.

1 7. The supposed / in the adscript may be a, but aeras is hardly suitable. 

18. Some further letters of the illegible marginal note may have disappeared. 

42. It is possible that three or four letters preceded Laocoontis, e.g. haec. The 
meaning of the curved mark, which was inserted by the second hand below this line, is not 
clear. 



i6o THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

1099. Greek Paraphrase of Vergil, Aeneid. 

25-2 X 14-1 cm. Fifth century. 

A leaf, broken diagonally on one side, from a Latin-Greek vocabulary to 
the Aeneid. An analogous text is P. Rylands 61, which contains part of Cicero's 
In Catilinam II with a paraphrase in Greek. There, however, the Latin is 
transcribed continuously, whereas here it is only excerpted. The Latin words 
and their Greek equivalents are in parallel columns, both written by one copyist 
in a well-formed uncial hand of medium size and dating perhaps from the fifth 
century. The vocabulary extended over at least two books, of which the explicit 
and incipit, inscribed in capital letters and enclosed in an ornamental border, are 
preserved near the end of the second page. A work on so large a scale and 
executed by so practised a hand is evidently not to be credited to a young 
learner ; and it is surprising to find it so full of blunders. Not only are there 
frequent errors both in the Latin and the Greek, but the Vergilian order is not 
always maintained. Words from different verses are sometimes ranged in the 
same line (e.g. 11. 16, 21) and in two places (11. 1-6, 27 sqq.) there is a con- 
siderable dislocation. Some of the mistakes have been eliminated by a less 
cultivated hand employing a darker ink, but a good many remain, and no 
attempt has been made to amend the disturbed order. The corrector is 
responsible for the accentuation, which in order to assist pronunciation has 
been applied to the Latin as well as the Greek, stressed syllables receiving an 
acute accent ; in one case (1. 6) a mark of long quantity is used instead. These 
accents were often very lightly written, and were probably inserted in many 
places where they are no longer really visible. The leaf, which is of stout 
vellum, was ruled on the recto with a hard point which has left a light brown 
mark ; the horizontal rulings are doubled so as to regulate the size as well as 
the line of the writing. There is no trace of pagination.

15. It may perhaps be inferred from κχΐΚίονταί that volvuntur and not volvantur was 
written, volvuntur is the original reading in Pc and was inserted by the second hand in y. 
17. Some other letter was originally written in place of the first α of μιαινονσα. 

2 1 . π]υρκαϊα should be oxytone, and possibly the accent, though actually nearer to the 
t, was intended for the a. The aecent on μ(\η in 1. 45 is similarly somewhat misplaced. 

22. Why the imperative κα\ταφρονησον was written is not easy to see. 

25. Nothing is wanted before τα]ς and probably a defect in the leaf caused the Greek 
line to be begun further to the right than usual; cf. 1. 26. Several other flaws occur in this 
leaf. (μ€ τ]ας would be an unnatural order. 

26. ]oTfpos here can hardly be anything else than the termination of αμφοτΐρος, for 
αμφοτβρας, the accented e being a survival of the correct termination. But αμφ]οτ(ρο5 
does not account for the space, and since ο αυτός αμφ]σΓ(ρος would more than fill it, this line 
tends to confirm the hypothesis suggested by 1. 25 of a flaw in the vellum at this point. 

27-8. The remains of the Greek appear to suit nothing in the Latin nearer than 
11. 685-6. 

29. If 11. 27-8 are rightly reconstructed, there was very probably a disturbance in the 
order of the entries, as in 11. 1-6, and 11. 29 sqq. may return to one of the earlier verses. 
]τιην however is rather intractable unless we go back as far as 1. 675 ^oc illud fuit, which 
might perhaps be represented by e/ceti/o rovrt ψ. This would be of about the right length, 
but is not particularly satisfactory. 

35. Clearly marked rulings terminate three or four lines below this one, but there are 
faint traces of further rulings lower down, and the column may have continued some ten 
lines beyond 1. 35.

IV. DOCUMENTS OF THE ROMAN AND 
BYZANTINE PERIODS 

{a) OFFICIAL. 

1100. Edict of a Praefect. 

i5-7Xii-8cm. a.d. 206. Plate V. 

A circular letter addressed by the praefect Subatianus Aquila to the 
strategi of the Heptanomia enclosing a copy of an edict which they are directed 
to post up in conspicuous places for a period of not less than thirty consecutive 
days. The edict is unfortunately disfigured by extensive lacunae which render 
it difficult to follow the sense at all closely, and not much more can be said than 
that the object aimed at was the repression of official extortion, διασ^ισμο?. 
Complaints of this are not rare in the papyri (e.g. 240. 5, 284. 5, 285. 12, 
P. Amh. 81. 6), and prohibitions of it go back to Ptolemaic times (cf. P. Paris 
61, P. Tebt. 5. 138-43, &c.). What particular class or classes of oflficials the 
praefect on the present occasion had in view is not apparent. 

The text, which is on the verso, is copied in a hand approximating to the 
literary type, and so, being accurately dated, has a certain palaeographical 
interest. On the recto is 1110.

in 11 2-21 has been roughly calculated on the basis of the supplement adopted in 1. i. 

'2 'Αλ^ξανδρ^ων: Άντινο^ων might be preferred on account of 1. 23, but Alexandria 
is the natural place of promulgation. If Άνηνοίων were supplied, χωρ\: Άντιροιτον would 
presumably have to be added in 1. i ; cf. e. g. B. G. U. 484. 9-10. ^

ς βοίΧομαι is the word also used in the analogous circular B. G.U. 646. 7, and m the 
letter of Subatianus Aquila published by F. Zucker in Silzungsb. der K. Preuss. Ajad. 1910, 
ρ -713. Zucker's remark that βούλομ^ in place of ^ϋχομαι is 'ganz gegen die Kegel 
is somewhat misleading; βούλομα, seems to have been preferred in the praefects bureau. 

10. κλησθήσ^ται, if rightly read, may be for κληθήσ€ται; κ^ην and κλφιρ are 

unlikely here. 

1 1. Perhaps μηΒίν was meant ; the writer was clearly not very accurate. 
1 4. ίπηρ^τ cannot be read, but perhaps the second η is a mistake for e. 

10 κοΧΚητιωσι is a remarkable word ; the fourth and fifth letters might be read as γ, 
which, however, does not improve matters, r, not γ, is clear. A Grecism of coHa/io is hardly 
likely at this date.

2 2. If the verb is [ιταρ^ρ^οθήσονται, the first syllable would probably belong to the 
previous line. The number of letters lost at the beginnings of 11. 11-22 is not 
precisely fixed. 



1101. Edict of a Praefect. 

28-7 X 17-7 cm. A. D. 367-70. 

Copy of an edict prohibiting recourse to military praepositi on the part of 
civil litigants. The name of the praefect issuing this decree is given as . . . Imius 
Statianus, i. e. no doubt Flavius Eutolmius Tatianus (Dittenberger, Or. Gr, Inscr. 
733), who held office in A.D. 367-70; cf. Cod. Theod. xii. 18. i, Cantarelli, La 
Serie dei Prefeiii, ii. p. 34. He begins by stating that the illegal abuse of 
military jurisdiction was a matter of his own personal knowledge (11. 2-12). 
Jurisdiction over civilians belonged to the praefect (11. 13-15) and their recourse 
to praepositi was only permissible when justice was required locally against 
a soldier (11. 17-21). Nothing else justified neglect of the proper civil courts, 
and future offences in this regard would be punished by deportation or con- 
fiscation, according to the rank of the delinquent (11. 22-5). The text breaks off 
in an incomplete sentence ordering the local riparii to report any cases which 
they might detect ; probably only a few words were wanted to conclude the 
copy of the edict, and if they were added it must have been either along the 
lost left-hand margin or on a separate sheet of papyrus, for this one is complete 
at the bottom and on the right-hand side, and there is no indication of a second 
sheet having been joined on. 

The encroachment against which this proclamation is directed of the 
military authority in judicial matters is illustrated by the frequently recurring 
imperial constitutions on the subject during this period. In Cod. Theod. xii. i. 
128 of A. D. 392 it was ordained Militaribiis viris nihil sit commune cum curiis ; 
nihil sibi licituvt sciani, quod suae non subiectum est potestati; cf. id. i. 21. i 
Numquam omnino negoiiis privatorum vel tuitio militis vel executio tribuatur 
(a. D. 393), ii. I. 9 Si quis neglectis iudicibus or dinar iis sine caelesti oraculo 
causam civilem ad militare indicium crediderit deferendam, praeter poenas ante 
promulgatas intellegat se deportatio7iis sortem excepturnm (cf. 1. 24 below ντισον 
οίκησαι κελεύω), nihilo minus et advocatum eius decem librarutn auri condemna- 
tione feriendum, Cod. Just. i. 46. 2 Praecipimus, ne quando curiales vel privatae 
condicionis homines ad militare exhibeaniur indicium (cf. 11. 24-5 below). Military 



1101. OFFICIAL 167 

arrogance and aggression form one of the main themes of the oration of Libanius 
De pairociniis (cf. §§4-5, 23, &c.) ; and a concrete instance is provided by P. Brit. 
Mus. 408, where a complaint is brought against a praepositus that he had 
prevented certain criminals from being brought to justice (about A. D. 346).

i68 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

' Copy of an edict. Proclamation of Flavius Eutolmius Tatianus, most illustrious praefect 
of Egypt. [My orders are] not based on information gained by . . . and from a few first comers, 
but on instruction in a way derived from what occurs in every city and district. I learn 
from petitions that some persons of civil status, without [excuse ?], whether from malice or 
from perversity of judgement, in their desire thoroughly to worst their adversaries at law, 
have recourse to the local praepositi, presenting petitions to them and procuring exactions 
by their means from persons, as I said, of civil status. That this is forbidden by the law is 
clear. For a praepositus has authority over soldiers, but not over civilians ; it is enjoined 
on the praesides to [govern] them and to receive their applications. This, therefore, is for 
the future made clear by this proclamation. If any civilian has a difference with a soldier 
and relies on the vengeance of the praepositus and is confident of receiving assistance from 
him, let him apply ; for he cannot obtain requisite assistance on the spot from any one else. 
If, however, it is with a person of civil status, let him not attempt to do this. For should 
any one ever be discovered leaving his proper court and having recourse to unauthorized 
persons, if he is a man of common rank, I order him to be deported, and if he is a senator, 
I subject him to confiscation of property. I therefore command the local riparii, if they 
catch any civilian who has left his proper court and had recourse to praepositi . . .' 

3 sqq. This construction is not very satisfactory, and it is quite possible, as Mitteis 
suggests, that ίγνων preceded ov in I. 3 and that there is no full stop at the end of 1. 5. But 
on that view of the passage I should prefer to write [?μαθον, ov], and to keep [ίγνων γα]ρ e| 
ίντΐίξΐων as a parenthesis instead of substituting, as he proposes, something like \καθάπΐ\>. 
Neither τη pijo-ei nor άκροάσα suits the remains after ] μεν. 

5. ei]i (κ<Ίστ[η]ν: this use of els for fv is frequent in the Koti»^, e.g. Diodor. xiii. 12

64. 457 -noKis Koi ai κωμαι της ivopLas, and on the significance of this conjunction of πόλί? and 
ivop'ia, Gelzer, Byz. Verwalt. Aeg. p. 62. 

7. The illegible word after av^ev may begin with προσ, and προστασία! would be 
reconcilable with the very slight remains. But such a recognition of the principle of 
patrocinium seems inconsistent with the quite general terms of the prohibition in 11. 17 sqq., 
as well as with the trend of contemporary legislation (cf. e.g. de Zulueta, Be Patroc. Vicorum, 
Gelzer, Byz. Verw. pp. 69 sqq.), and a vaguer expression like av\iv προφάσ(ως would be 
preferable. προφάσ(ωί, however, cannot be read, and the letter after π is more probably 
λ or ο than p, of which part of the tail should be visible. av]eu too is uncertain ; ev may 
belong to the following word. κακο[βουλ(()'ία]ς produces a tolerable antithesis to κακίας, but 
is highly conjectural. 

13-14. By Cod. Theod. ii. i. 2 (a. d. 355) military jurisdiction was limited to criminal 
cases in which the defendant was a soldier; in Cod. Just. iii. 13. 6 (a. d. 413) it extends to 
civil cases of a like character. A differentiation of suits in which one of the parties was 
a soldier is recognized in 11. 1 7 sqq. below. No distinction is, however, drawn between 
criminal and civil cases.

1102. Report of Legal Proceedings. 

20'4X25-5cm. About A. D. 146. 

A report of a judgement delivered by a hypomnematographus, Cerealis. 
There are very slight remains of the column preceding that printed beloAv, and 
perhaps the earlier history of the case was originally prefixed. It was evidently 
a complicated and difficult matter, for references are made to decisions already 
given concerning it by the praefect Valerius Proculus (1. 7) and the juridicus 
Neocydes (11. 16, 24), — familiar names which supply an approximate date for the 
present proceedings. The principal parties to the suit were the representatives 
of a city (Oxyrhynchus ?) and one of its citizens, a certain Eudaemon, the 
question at issue being the ownership of some property to which Eudaemon 
was the successor and the city asserted claims. Cerealis re-affirms a decision of the 
praefect Proculus directing Eudaemon to hand over to the city for the gymna- 
siarchy a quarter of the property, with exception of a part which had been 
bestowed as a dowry (II. 7-1 1). He ordains a further investigation by the local 
strategus of the question whether certain land was included under the will — 
presumably that under which Eudaemon had inherited the property — and if 
the answer should be in the negative, that the land was to belong to the city 
(11. 11-15). The ownership of some furniture and slaves had already been 
determined by Neocydes (11. 15-16). A request was then made by the city- 
delegates to be allowed to keep the revenues of the above-mentioned land, and 
these were awarded to them apparently for one year (11. 16-18). Eudaemon 
complains that his revenues had been impounded, and Cerealis replies that they 
should be released when the terms of his judgement had been complied with, 
and declines to reconsider further questions raised by the delegates (11. 18-24).

' Copy of a judgement. . . . year, Hathur 21. ... and . . . and their associates and 
Eudaemon and . . . being present, Cerealis, priest and recorder, having considered with 
those in attendance dictated a judgement which was read out as follows : — " In accordance 
with the decision of the most high and gracious praefect Valerius Proculus, 1 think it right 
that Eudaemon, without taking any of his brother's properly, having once entered on the 
inheritance, should contribute the fourth part of the estate to his native city for the gymnasi- 
archy, with a deduction of the dowry previously given to the daughter. With regard to 
the amount, seeing that in answer to my question he made no clear statement, the strategus 
of the nome shall hold a more exact inquiry in the place where he lives, and if the . . . 
arourae appear not to come under the testamentary covenant according to the laws and 



1102. OFFICIAL 171 

ihe decisions read to me, . . . these arourae shall go to the city. With regard to the furniture 
and young slaves, a decision has been given by Neocydes, ex-juridicus." The delegates 
having requested to remain in possession of the income of the arourae, the priest and recorder 
said : " The city shall receive the income of one year." On Eudaemon's declaring through 
his companions that his income had been impounded, and requesting that it should be 
released, the priest and recorder said : "As soon as my orders have been carried out, and 
the city has received its proper share, it shall be released." The delegates having made 
a request for delay and also concerning the property standing in the name of the wife 
of Apollonius, the priest and recorder said : " Neocydes has delivered judgement . . . about 
this. Sarapion, assistant of the praefect, Trogodyte, went out. Read by me." '

3. Ενίδ](ΐί>ο»'[ο]ί, though commended by 1. 8, &c., is not very satisfactory, the first three 
letters being too cramped. 

4. [ii]pei;i Koi νπομνηματογράφος : cf. P. Tebt. 286. 1 5, where our restoration of Upevs is 
now confirmed. On the rank of the νπομνηματογράφος see the note ad loc. Cerealis is perhaps 
identical with the Claudius Cerealis who was strategus of the Ήρακλίίδου /nfp/s in a.d. 138-9 
(P. Brit. Mus. 1222. i &c.). 

5. Cf. P. Tebt. 286. 15-18, which should be restored on this analogy as follows:

II. Tji βυγ[ατρί] is more likely to mean the daughter of the testator (Eudaemon's brother ? 
cf. 1. 8) than Eudaemon's own daughter.

e. g. μίτ eras, which would not be inconsistent with the very slight vestiges. 

16. Other references to Claudius Neocydes occur in P. Fay. 203 (= Preisigke, 
P. Cairo i), P. Brit. Mus. 196. i, B. G. U. 245. ii. i, 378. 17, 1019. 5; cf. Archtv

23. The wife of Apollonius may be identical with the θυγάτηρ mentioned in 1. 11.

[ν>'ίμ]οΐ/[£«(όί) is a doubtful reading, but seems justified by analogy. For the spelling 
Ύρωγο^ντης, which is correct, cf. Wilcken, Theb. Bank. p. 58. Aethiopic slaves are mentioned 
in P. Flor. 50. 62, 94. 



172 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

1103. Proceedings of the Senate. 

25-5 X ι6•3 cm. A.D. 360. 

A minute of a report made to the Oxyrhynchite senate by Eutrygius, 
formerly a logistes, concerning the payment of certain recruits. The dux, or 
commander-in-chief, on visiting the city had received a complaint from these 
recruits that they had not had their dues. Eutrygius states that his department 
had satisfied the dux that the complaint was groundless, and that the recruits 
had as a matter of fact been paid more than they were strictly entitled to. 

The payment in question is apparently to be brought into connexion with 
the xpvaos τφώνων mentioned in several Leipzig papyri of about the same period 
as 1103 ; cf. 34. verso 7, 61. 14, 62. 3, &c. In P. Leipzig ^^,'). 8 (c. A.D, 373) an 
imperial ordinance is quoted limiting the sum payable to recruits to 10 solidi, 
and in A.D. ^y^ it was fixed at 6 solidi by Cod. Theod. vii. 13. 7. 2, where the 
payment is described as an allowance for clothing and expenses {gratia vestis 
ac siimptuum). At the time when the present document was drawn up no such 
general regulation can have been promulgated, since according to 1. 7 the 
amount was determined by the Treasury. Mitteis has raised the question 
(Introd. to P. Leipzig 54) whether this burden was borne by the State or fell 
upon the municipalities where the recruits were raised ; it is now sufficiently 
clear that the latter of these alternatives is to be accepted. 

This text is written on the verso of 1104, which is over fifty years earlier 
in date. For other records of proceedings in the local senates cf. B. G. U. 925, 
C. P. Herm. 7, Archiv iv. pp. 115 sqq.

A letter from Aurelius Hieracion, prytanis, to the logistes, requesting 
payment of a sum amounting to over fifty talents of silver in order to meet 
expenditure on the public baths. Repairs of the baths of Oxyrhynchus figured 
conspicuously in the municipal budget at this period ; cf. 53 and 896, which are 
dated ten years later than 1104. It is noteworthy that the present outlay is 
stated to have been authorized by the praefect Clodius Culcianus, — whose period 
of office is brought down a year later by this allusion. At the end is an endorse- 
ment showing that the money was duly paid over and an acknowledgement given 
for it by Hieracion. Cf. Wessely, Stud. Pal. v. 66 sqq. The document is a good 
deal rubbed, and is difficult in places to decipher ; on the verso is 1103.

orders may now be given to pay me out of the city's funds from the sums publicly 
apportioned ... to be used for the expenses in accordance with the letters of his highness 
my lord the praefect Clodius Culcianus which 1 lately handed to you ... a further sum of 
fifty talents and four hundred and fifty denarii of silver, total 50 tal. 450 den, I think 
it right that the curator of the civic chest should be sent to make this payment to me, so that 
there may be no obstruction to the interests of the public baths or to the other interests of 
my prytany. 1 pray for your health, dearest friend.' Date by the regnal years of the 
emperors, and declaration of the curator (?) that he had paid over the money and obtained 
a receipt. 

3. For Aurelius Seuthis cf. 895. 3.

1105. Notice to the Agoranomus. 

14-2x10 cm. A. D. 81-96. 

A description of this papyrus was printed in Part II, 339 (= P. Brit. Mus. 
805), but since some scepticism has been expressed concerning the accuracy of 
the interpretation there given (Manigk, Gldiibigerbefriedigung durch Nutzung, 
p. 23 ; cf. Z. Sav.-St. xxx. p. 283), and I have ascertained, as I think, the nature 
of the yearly payment, previously described as obscure (cf. note on 1. 21), it is 
desirable to publish the complete text. The formula of this document, which 
is common to a number of Oxyrhynchus papyri of the end of the first century, 
was discussed in the introd. to 241; cf. Archiv i. p. 194, Wenger, Stellvertretung, 
p. 80. There is, however, still some doubt whether in such authorizations to the 
agoranomi the verb αναγραφών means * to register ' or * to draw up ' a contract.

It was originally interpreted by us in the former sense (cf. Preisigke, Giroweseii, 
pp. 307-8, 423, 446 ^), but the latter, which was advanced by Koschaker in Z. 
Sav.-St. xxxviii. p. 289 is, as I understand, now preferred by Mitteis.

in the quarter of the South Square, namely, three-fifths of a three-storeyed house, below 
which is a cellar, and the courts belonging thereto, and a stone well and other fixtures and 
the entrances and exits to them and appurtenances, being joint and indivisible, which 
Tbekis daughter of Hierax son of Thoonis, of the city of Oxyrhynchus, has mortgaged to 
him for a capital sum of 400 drachmae of silver for a period of three years, with the right 
of inhabiting the said three parts of the house and the rest of the property in lieu of interest, 
on condition that he shall pay annually the charge for the renewal of the mortgage, 
being of the value of 30 talents of copper. Good-bye. The . . . year of the Emperor 
Caesar Domitianus Augustus Germanicus . . .' 

1 8. Other examples of occupation of house property instead of interest are P. Brit. 
Mus. 1 168 and B. G.U. 1 1 1 5, which were discussed at length by Manigk, Glaubigerbe/riedigung, 
pp. 21 sqq. In those two documents, however, there is no technical mortgage of the 
property, as there indubitably is, notwithstanding Manigk's objections, in 1105. For a later 
instance (a. d. 608) see the papyrus published by Wessely in Wiener Siud.wn.'^^. 130-1

Flor. Ι. 6, &C. ; Naber, Archiv i. p. 314, had already suggested that this was an annual 
impost, avavi is the most probable reading of the first five letters, and the ω of the termina- 
tion is also fairly clear ; I am, therefore, confident that the payment to be made by Thoonis 
was connected with the ανανίασα. More doubt attaches to the identification of the figure 
at the end of the line. In the original description of this papyrus {^αΚαντα) 8 was adopted 
as the object of τάξίται ; but that sum is larger than would be expected in view of the fact 
that the tax on mortgages is known from 243 to have been only 2 per cent. At the normal 
ratio between silver and Ptolemaic copper of i : 450 (242. introd.), 4 talents of copper 
are 1 3^ per cent, of the capital sum of 400 drachmae. Quite possibly the actual tax was 
not the only expense involved in the process of άνανίωσίς ; but it can hardly be supposed 
that extra charges could raise the percentage so high as 13^. Mr. Bell, who has kindly 
looked at the passage, agrees with me that a, which would be 3 J per cent., instead of δ is 
palaeographically unsatisfactory, and hence I prefer to read the figure as λ and to regard 
this, not as the amount of the TeXos, but as the amount on which the reAo? was paid. At 
a ratio of i : 450, 400 drachmae of silver and 30 talents of copper are equivalent (cf. 331, 
where these identical sums again stand side by side) ; and, as is clear from the numerous 
examples (242-3, 327 sqq.), it was the rule in documents of this class for the capital 
amount to be expressed in terms of both copper and silver, την is accordingly not to be 
altered to της, but some word like Βαπάνην must be understood. [For the literature on 
άνανίωσις, which must now be reconsidered, see B. Schwarz, Hypoihek, p. 118.]

1110. Census-return. 



ΐ5•7Χ II-8 cm. 



A.D. li 



This census-return, which is preseived on the recto of 1100, though mutilated, 
is of interest as being concerned, like P. Reinach 49 of the year A.D. 215-16, 
with Antinoopolis (cf. 970). It resembles the Reinach return in being addressed 
to a board of three persons from one φυλή, who had been chosen (by the senate) 
to superintend the census in one of the districts of the city. The return is made 
by a citizen of Antinoopolis, apparently a young man, whose household consisted 
chiefly of slaves. Incidentally it adds to the list of Antinoite demes (cf. the note 
on 1. i), and provides new evidence for the date of the praefecture of Aurelius 
Papirius Dionysius (11. 6-7). Both the beginnings and ends of the lines are lost ; 
the extent of the lacunae can be measured by 11. 6-8, but it is uncertain how the 
lines should be divided, and the arrangement adopted is only hypothetical. Two 
diagonal dashes have been drawn across the top left-hand corner.

915, P. Hamburg 7, Wessely, Stud. Pal. ii. pp. 27-8, 31. The editors of P. Brit. Mus. 
915 were wrong in suspecting an error on the part of the scribe, not noticing that the date 
in 1. 41 is confirmed by 11. 20—21. For πρό? τό cf. P. Reinach 49. 7.

read; for ihe πΚινθία at Antinoopolis see also P. Brit. Mus. 1164. [c) 12-13. The deme-

nil. Census-returns. 

10.2x13-4 cm, A.D. 203. 

Two returns for the census of A. D, 201-2, relating to the Oxyrhynchite 
village of Mermertha. They were stuck together to form a roll, but the first line 
of Col. I, owing no doubt to the relative shortness of that particular sheet, corre- 
sponds with the eighth of Col. ii ; in the left margin also there are some slight 
remains of the document (no doubt a similar declaration) affixed on that side. 
Col. i, of which the commencement is preserved, is unaddressed, like 479.

i86 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

i. ' From Didyme daughter of Cephalon and Didyme, with her guardian Heliodorus 
son of Dionysius, of the city of Oxyrhynchus. In accordance with the orders of his 
excellency the praefect Maecius Laetus I register for the house to house registration of the 
past loth year the house belonging to me in the mid-eastern parts of the village of Mer- 
mertha together with my full brothers Asclas and Cephalon, formerly the property of our 
mother in respect of one half and of our father the said Cephalon in respect of the remaining 
half . . .' 

i. 3-5. It is clear from this passage that Q. Maecius Laetus remained in office down to 
the beginning of September a.d. 202, and, since census-returns were commonly sent in when 
the year was well advanced, it is probable that his tenure extended into a.d. 203. Cantarelli 
is accordingly mistaken {La Serie dei Prefetti, p. 65) in dating the praefecture of Subatianus 
Aquila from the year 201-2 on the strength of B. G. U. 484, in which the census of 
A.D. 201-2 is referred to but which cannot itself have been written in that year, as 1111 
proves. The earliest date for the commencement of the tenure of Subatianus Aquila is 
A.D. 202-3 (Euseb. vi. 3. 3; cf. Archiv v. p. 418). 

The statement of the text that the census of a. d. 201-2 was ordered by Laetus is of 
interest for another reason, to which my attention has been drawn by Wilcken. Rostowzew 
in Rom. Kolonat, pp. 209—11, seeks to bring into close connexion with the census the 
edicts of Subatianus Aquila and Valerius Datus directing people to return to their homes. 
It is now clear that Subatianus Aquila was no more the initiator of the census of a.d. 201-2 
than Valerius Datus was of the census of a.d. 215-16, and hence their edicts at any rate 
formed no part of the original orders for holding the census. Cf. Wilcken's forthcoming 
Chresiomathie, p. 235. 

ii. ' ... of the village of Mermertha. In accordance with the orders of his excellency 
the praefect Maecius Laetus, I register for the house to house registration of the loth year 
the half share of a walled space belonging to me at the village, formerly the property of my 
father and formerly of his father Admetus ; at which we return ourselves as follows : 
Admetus son of Heracleus, aged . . years, my mother being Tapontos daughter of , . ., 
whom I declare to have died in the . . . year ; my son Heracles by . . . daughter of . . ., 
whom I declare to have died long ago; my son Admetus by Τ . . . daughter of . . ., having 
no trade or distinguishing mark, aged . . . years ; my brother Mieus . . .' 

6. For the repetition of (πρότίρον) cf. i. 9-10. α is clear, but whether it is the numeral 
or not is doubtful. 

8. For the supplement cf. 171. 11 (Part II, p. 208). I suspect that βφ' ol should also be 
read in P. Flor. 4. 12. 

II. The entries here and in 1. 13 concerning the death of the mother's father are unusual. 
They can hardly refer to the persons named in 11. 9 and 12, since it is the rule for the name 
of the person making the return to stand first ; cf. e. g. P. Flor. 4. 

17. A horizontal stroke at the beginning of this line may either belong to a letter, e. g. τ, 
or represent yivoprai.

1112. Purchase of Acacia-trees. 

17-3 X9 cm. A.D. 188. 

Two extracts from the records of the idiologus giving the substance of 
declarations made by a certain Apollonius concerning purchases by him of 
acacia-trees (ακανθαή. These trees were evidently the property of the government, 
and were bought by Apollonius at the rate of 13 drachmae each, a very much 
smaller price than that found in the private contract 909, where 14 trees fetch 
1,200 drachmae. That document, however, is some forty years later in date than 
1112, which belongs to the reign of Commodus, and of course there may have 
been a considerable difference in the size and condition of the trees ; some of 
those here sold are described as ' fallen ' (1. 23). The extracts, which are very 
cursively written and much abbreviated, are written across the fibres on the verso 
of the papyrus ; on the recto are the beginnings of some lines of a second -century 
account.

I. TO κ{ατ apbpa) : SO e.g. P. Brit. Mus. 259. iii. 104; the third letter is possibly β, 
but not μ. The superfluous λ above the line (cf. the critical note) stood for λ(όγου), but the 
writer changed his mind and added λόγ(ου), without cancelling the suspended λ. 

5• roC : SC. κωμογραμματ£α)5 ', cf. 11. 20—1. 

7. For Ώΐ(ννώ cf. 713. 26. The scribe seems to have at first intended to abbreviate 
the name after neev; cf. the note on 1. i, and 1. 22 βορ{ρ)[ι]νο'ίς. 

ΙΟ. 2ev(p(\f{v): Σ(ν(Κ(λ€{ύ) (899. 7, 1052. 3, &c.) can only be read on the supposition 
that the e was miswritten, which would be natural were it not for the fact that Sew/xeXiu 
seems to have been the spelling in 482. 5. Possibly, then, 2fvfKf'\(v and Έ€ν(μΐ\(ύ were 
distinct places. 

14. ΐπόμ€να is the usual term for extra charges in connexion with government sales; cf. 
513. 12, P. Amh. 97. 14. As suggested in the note on 513. 12, they are not to be dis- 
tinguished from the προσ8ιαγραφόμ(να, on the amount of which see the next note.

16. For this contraction οι προσΒιαγραφομ^νων cf. 11. 20 πρ{ΐσ)β{υτ(ρων) and 1. 25, where 
the δ is omitted. Other instances of such contraction are P. Amh. 35 βα(σι.\ι)κων and the 
common κ{άτ)οι(κο5) ; cf. also 1. 22. The προσδιαγραφόμΐνα amount to 6^ per cent, of the 
price, both here and in 1. 25; the same proportion is found in 513. 15. 

19. e' is no doubt to be interpreted €π{ικαλονμ€νος) here as in 1. 2, the foUoAving name, 
&c., being omitted for the sake of brevity. Apparently in 1. 2 also the scribe originally

1113. Return of Unirrigated Land. 

i7'3Xi4'9cm. a. d. 203. 

Two declarations, which have been joined together, concerning unirrigated 
land; cf. P. Grenf. II. ^6, P. Fay. S3, ?• Tebt. 324, B. G. U. 139, 198, 973, 
P. Hamburg 11. One is addressed to the comogrammateus of the village near 
which the land was situated, the other, like B. G. U. 198, bears no address. 
Such returns were usually made in consequence of an order of the praefect in 
office, but in P. Hamburg 11, as in the present case, the authorization is stated 
to have emanated from the procurator usiacus Claudius Diognetus, who is also 
known from P. Giessen 48. 25 and papyri published by Wilcken in Hermes^ xxiii. 
p. 593 (a.d. 197) and Comparetti in Melanges Nicole^ pp. 57 sqq. (Cols, i and 
iv, A. D. 203, not second century, as was pointed out by Stein, Archiv iv. 165).

Sarapion and Aristocleia also called Chaeremonis, of the said city. In accordance with the 
orders of his highness the procurator Claudius Diognetus we register for the current nth 
year the unwatered land belonging to us at Sento in the holding of Cleandrus with the 
adjacent ground standing in the name of (?) Dionysius son of Apion, namely , ^ arourae of

Pius Pertinax and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Pius Augusti and Publius Septimius Geta 
Caesar Augustus that I have made no false statement.' Date. 

i. 14. This date is noticeable, since both B. G. U. 139 and P. Hamburg 11 refer to 
the 10th year, and evidence is thus for the first time obtained of the registration of 
unirrigated land in two consecutive years. The fact that such a registration took place 
in the year 202-3 is a slight argument in favour of the supposition that B. G. U. 108 is 
also concerned with αβροχος γη (cf. Eger, Grundbuchwesen, p. 183, note 3), in which case 
a third consecutive year would have to be added. This, however, would not necessarily 
disprove our view that the returns of unirrigated land were not annual (P. Oxy. Π. p. 177), 
for a succession of low Niles is quite possible; cf. Eger, op. cii., p. 184.

192 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

1114. Declaration of Inheritance. 

26 X 56 cm. A. D. 237. Plate VII. 

A Latin declaration made to the responsible Roman official by M. Aurelius 
Saras, a citizen of Oxyrhynchus, that his wife had died intestate, and that the 
inheritance, which passed to their two daughters, was of the value of 200,000 
sesterces and free from the vicesima hereditatiwn or succession duty of 5 per 
cent. To this declaration is appended an affidavit in Greek, duly witnessed, of 
the fact of intestate death, and a subscription in Latin of a notary of the office 
concerned with the tax. 

The persons concerned were all Aurelii, and therefore subject to the vicesima ; 
it was indeed in the interest of this and similar taxes, so we are told (Dio Ixxvii. 
9), that the cotistitutio Aniojiina \v3.s promulgated ; cf. Archiv v. p. 429. On the 
history of the impost see Bachofen, Atisgew. Lehren des R. Civilrechts, pp. 322 sqq., 
Cagnat, Les Impots hidirects chez les Romains, pp. 175 sqq., Hirschfeld, K. Ver- 
waltungsbeamten, pp. 96 sqq. Instituted by Augustus it was levied upon all 
inheritances and legacies except where the beneficiaries were near relations or 
the estate inconsiderable (ttAiji; τώι; τιάνν ανγ-γ^νων η καΐ ττίνητων, Dio 1ν. 25}. 
Caracalla, who raised the rate to 10 per cent., abolished the exemption in virtue 
of close relationship (Dio Ixxvii. 9, Ulpian, Coll. xvi. 9. 3) ; but these changes 
Avere reversed by his successor Macrinus (Dio Ixxviii. 12). What degree of 
affinity is to be understood from Dio's phrases ττάνν συγγενών and πάνυ ττροσηκονσι 
is not clear (cf. Cagnat, op. cit., p. 184), but daughters succeeding to an intestate 
mother, as they were entitled to do by the recent Senatiis consultiini Orfitiamim 
(cf. 1118. 13), would doubtless be included within the exemption, and this benefit 
would extend to their father, who in such a case would be the de facto heir; cf. 
the note on 1. 9. A niece on the other hand seems not to have enjoyed immunity, 
for in P. Amh. 72, a declaration by a woman of the value of an intestate uncle's 
estate to which she was succeeding (a. d. 246), there is no mention of any claim 
to exemption. Relationship and not poverty was evidently the ground of the 
claim in the present instance. The taxable minimum is indeed uncertain, but it 
can hardly have reached 200,000 sesterces ; Bachofen puts it at half that amount 
{op. cit., pp. 341-2 ; so Mommsen, Die Rom. Tribus, p. 1 20, Marquardt, Staatsverw. 
ii. p. 259). The tax no longer existed in the time of Justinian {Cod. vi. ο,-^,. 3) 
and its abolition was perhaps one of the financial reforms of Diocletian and 
Constantine ; this papyrus appears to be the latest document in which it is 
directly mentioned.

The Latin pvofessio and the subscription of the notary are written in clear 
cursive hands rather similar in type to that of P. Grenf. II. 108 of the latter half 
of the previous century. Dots or short dashes are, as usual, commonly placed 
after abbreviations and occasionally after other words (11. 5, 37). Line 38 is in 
a smaller and less legible writing.

Aurelius Saras, ex-gymnasiarch and senator of the city of Oxyrhynchus, son of Marcus 
Aurelius Diogenes also called Heliodorus, ex-eutheniarch and senator of the most illustrious

and however he is styled, ex-gymnasiarch and senator of the city of Oxyrhynchus, his wife 
and the mother of their daughters Aurelia Stratonice also called Sosipatra and Aurelia 
Apollonia also called Dieus, who are under age, died intestate . . .' Signatures of witnesses 
and of Marcus Aurelius Saras in Greek and of a notary in Latin. 

2-4. The small fragment assigned to the middles of these lines is doubtfully placed, 
sancti\ssim[t being unsatisfactory. D]add could be read in place of Sarm]aiid, but this 
causes greater difficulties in the next line. 

5-6. Geminius Valens, if that was his name, was apparently an official in the office of 
the procurator vicesimae, who was no doubt appointed for Egypt as for other provinces; cf. 
HirSChfeld, K. Verwaliungsbeamten, pp. 102-4. A σταηών r^s ίΐκοστψ των κΚηρονομιών κάϊ 
ίλίυθεριών at Arsinoi'tonpolis is mentioned in B. G. U. 326. ii. 10. 

7. It is noticeable, as Wilcken remarks, that the term am'tas was now used where 
before the grant of the βουλή the correct Latin word was metropolis ; cf. e. g. the Cairo 
diptych referred to in the following note. ,• u j 

8. g{ui) e{t) : the same abbreviation occurs e. g. in the cretiones hereditatium pubhshed 
.by De Ricci from a Cairo diptych in Nouv. Rev. xxx. pp. 479 sqq- and reprinted in Bruns, 
ed. 7, pp. 319-20. At the end of this line decurionis darissimae is expected, but cannot be 
read.' Perhaps decurionis was omitted and some longer adjective used, e. g. sp^en]d[i]d[i]s- 
s[i]mae, which is a possible though not very satisfactory reading ; or decurionis was written 
and* the adjective was quite short, decu[rioni]s s[.]s . . . ae. 

9. How the lacuna after pro/[iteor is to be filled is unfortunately somewhat doubtful. 

Ο α 



196 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

The daughters could only succeed iussu pain's, and he would at this period be the real 
beneficiary (Gaius ii. 87; modifications were subsequently introduced, Cod. Just. \\. 60): 
hence something like me adnuisse would be suitable. The construction of 1. 15 rather 
suggests that an infinitive had preceded, otherwise the more neutral supplement \pro duabus\ 
might be preferred. 

13. suae: the construction demands ζ^ζί-Λί ; that />/'^/"[z/'(?i?r and not />;'^/"[z"/i'/«r preceded 
in 1. 9 is indicated by suhieci in 1. 14. 

The meaning of the letters q. p./. here is uncertain ; from their position and the run of 
the sentence they should refer in some way to the date, and the interpretation suggested in 
the text will give a tolerable sense. Or possibly p might represent praesens as an equivalent 
of the Greek hiarw; cf. 1. 24. <1• p• f• is also found in C. I. L. v. 5067. 7 of a.d. 103, 

Εαφεηό', ii cos. [ \q. p. f. [. . cur\aiores Saiur\. . . . i\nfra scripti. The letters have 

there been explained as standing for qui primi/uerunt, referring to the persons iJi/ra scripii; 
that, however, is very doubtful, and it seems likely that the day of the month preceded in 
the lacuna, and that the meaning of the abbreviation is the same as in the present passage. 

30. If 1. I was the first of the column the loss at the top of Col. ii above 1. 30 would 
not be expected to exceed more than three or four lines. 

32. μαρτυρώ or some equivalent term is to be supplied at the end of the line. 
προκΐψ[€]ι>ηί is very doubtfully read. 

35. Ivivilinus is a curious name, but I cannot read the letters otherwise; Iul{ius) 
Vilinus is inadmissible. Tabularii are frequently mentioned in connexion with the vicesima ; 
cf. Hirschfeld, op. cii., p. 105. They were commonly freedmen, as here. 

38. If ac/um is right (cf. e. g. the Cairo diptych, ap. Bruns, p. 320), a place-name would 
be expected to follow, but the s followed by a dot seems clear. Perhaps s[upra) s{cripio) 
die was written. 



1115. Reply to a Strategus. 

23*5 X 20-8 cm. A.D. 284. 

The writers of this letter were three agents for the delivery of the military 
annona, who had been asked by the strategus, in consequence of representations 
from the praefect and dioecetes, for the receipt for a large quantity of bread 
delivered by them to certain military and naval detachments. They accordingly 
forwarded the original receipt, enclosing at the same time a copy which they 
request the strategus to sign. The receipt had been issued in the sixth year of 
Probus (a. D. 281), but the signature of the strategus, which is appended as 
requested, is dated in Pachon of the second year, the reference presumably being 
to the reign of Numerianus. Pomponius lanuarianus, the praefect in office 
(1. 4), is a new addition to the list of Egyptian praefects.

8. The initial letter of the mutilated word could also well be η. 

ΙΟ. The letters following Άγουστ are very uncertain, but the reading suggested is 
sufficiently suitable. Άγουστίω does not seem possible. The building referred to may well 
be the same as that known as the Καισάρων (Strabo xvii. 794) or Ί,φάστιον (Philo, Leg. ad 
Gaium, 22); cf. Lumbroso, L'Egitio, pp. 188 sqq., F. Blumenthal, ArcMvv.f^. 318-19.

13-14. Cf. P. Flor. 39. 8, where the same phrase is to be read {Archiv iii. p. 534). 
It may be suggested that in the next line of that papyrus the letters following trovs, which 
are transcribed as ov μ[, represent the current years of the Oxyrhynchite eras, which in

(ή PETITIONS. 

1117. Petition to a Praefect. 

19-8 X 13-9 cm. About A.D. 178. 

Draft of an appeal to an unnamed praefect from six persons described as 
the superintendents of the golden statue of Athene-Thoeris concerning a case of 
peculation which he had recently decided. The ends of the lines are lost 
throughout, but, though the lacunae as gauged by 11. i, 7, and 13 are too large to 
be restored with much certainty, the general sense is seldom obscured. Judgement 
had previously been given by an earlier praefect, Pactumeius Magnus (A.D." 176-7), 
and it was probably to his immediate successor Aurelius (?) Sanctus (a.d. 177-9) 
that the present petition was addressed. The statue of the goddess had lately 
been made, and a quantity of gold embezzled in the process. Magnus had decided 
that the loss, amounting to eighteen talents of silver, should be made good by 
the artificers and the municipal officials of the year (11. 4-5). His judgement was 
substantially upheld by the new praefect, who distributed the responsibility 
between the contractor, the inspector, the officials who disbursed the money, and 
the overseers, who now apply for relief (11. 6-8). They make no profession of 
innocence, but in the first place ask that two gymnasiarchs and a third official, all 
of whom, they assert, had been concerned in the disbursements (11. 9-15), should 
be called on to assist, and secondly apply for an extension of time, offering an 
annual payment of two talents (11. i6sqq.), and declaring that their existing 
obligation must reduce them to ruin. 

This draft is written across the fibres of the verso ; the recto contains 
remains of two columns of a list of persons, in which the word ττρεσβύτΐρος is 
apparently abbreviated in the same way as in 1112. 20.

1 1-7 X 1 1-4 cm. Late first or early second century. 

A fragment of an application, addressed no doubt to an archidicastes, for the 
recovery of a debt. The request is made that the strategus of the Small Oasis 
should be authorized to forward a copy of the claim to the debtors, and probably 
this application was appended to a notification to the strategus that the archidi- 
castes had sanctioned the claim, the arrangement being similar to that e.g. of 
485 ; cf, P. Flor. 86. 20-5, where the phraseology is very close to that used here.

111Θ. Petition to a Strategus, etc. 

28-5 X 39-6 cm. A.D. 254. 

The body of this long document consists of a petition from two citizens of 
Antinoopoliswho had property at Oxyrhynchus, Theon and Arsinous, requesting 
the strategus of the Oxyrh>Tichite nome to notify the existing phylarch that they 
were exempt from nomination to municipal offices. Their rights had been 
established ten years before under an earlier strategus, and they give a narrative 
of the course of events, and enclose copies of official correspondence relating to 
their case. Its history was as follows. Aurelius Sarapion, an amphodogramma- 
teus of Oxyrhynchus, in contravention of the pri\-ileges of Theon and Arsinous 
as AntinoYte citizens, had nominated them as collectors of money-taxes in the 
metropoUs. On receiving information of this they applied to the senate of their 
native cit>', who sent a letter of remonstrance to the epistrategus Antomus 



204 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

Alexander. A copy of this interesting letter, which is dated in A.D. 244, is given 
in 11. 14-22. It is a vindication of the privilege enjoyed by Antinoites of immu- 
nity from public burdens outside their own city (cf. note on 1. 16). That privi- 
lege had been granted by their founder Hadrian, had been confirmed by his 
successors, and respected by a long line of praefects and epistrategi. Antonius 
Alexander is asked to follow this example, and to instruct the strategus of 
Oxyrhynchus to call the offending amphodogrammateus to account. He did so 
two months later in a letter transcribed in 11. 22-4. The strategus passed on the 
correspondence to the amphodogrammateus demanding explanations, and the 
reply of the latter follows in 11. 25-8. He acknowledges his error, admitting that 
Theon and Arsinous had the rights of Antinoite citizens, and apparently himself 
undertaking the duty which he had wrongly imposed upon them. In the upper 
margin a short note has been added by the strategus to whom the petition was 
addressed, forwarding the document to the phylarch, as requested by the 
petitioners (11. 2-5) ; and at the foot (1. 30) is the signature of the agent who 
delivered it. 

The lines are of great length and there is a large lacuna at the commence- 
ment of each. The restorations adopted often aim at no more than indicating 
the general sense, which is for the most part clear.

copies of two letters, one written by the most high senate of the Antinoltes to Antonius 



2o8 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

Alexander the most high epistrategus, the other by the said epistrategus to the then 
strategus, and also a copy of the reply made by the then amphodogrammateus. The third 
year of the Emperors and Caesars Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus and Gains Vibius 
Afinius Gallus Veldumianus Volusianus Pii Felices Augusti, Mesore 23. 

■ To . . ., strategus of the Oxyrhynchite nome, from Aurelius Theon and Aurelius 
Arsinoiis, sons of Theon, Antinoi'tes of the Sebasteian tribe and Dioscureian deme. In the 
previous cycle of the persons about to serve in the quarters of this city, the amphodo- 
grammateus then in office, Aurelius Sarapion, [ignoring our rights,] in the list of burdens 
submitted by him returned us for the collection of money-taxes in the metropolis, and we 
immediately on receiving information of it . . . did not acquiesce but applied to the most 
high senate, recounting the audacity and illegality of the said amphodogrammateus. The 
senate was indignant and sent to the most high epistrategus Antonius Alexander, who, 
heedful of the rights especially accorded to our native city, sent to the then strategus 
Aurelius Dius also called Pertinax directing that the amphodogrammateus should be 
compelled either to present some other persons instead of us for the office, or [to pay the 
penalty for] his illegality. The strategus sent the whole correspondence to the amphodo- 
grammateus, and he, being aware of the danger hanging over him in consequence of his 
illegal action . . ., himself promised in amends for his error, for which he pleaded the excuse 
of ignorance, to undertake the burden for the future. Now, therefore, in order that the 
present phylarch may not appear to be ignorant of these facts . . . because one of us, 
Aurelius Theon, is there in our native city attending to the duties to which we have been 
assigned, since the turn has come to our senate in the present year to ... , we submit to you 
the following copies, begging that they may be communicated for his information by means 
of one of your assistants to Aurelius Heras, phylarch of the quarters about to serve. 
The third year of the Emperors and Caesars Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus and Gaius 
Vibius Afinius Gallus Veldumianus Volusianus Pii Felices Augusti, Mesore. The copies 
are as follows : — 

' The officials and senate of the illustrious city of the Antinoi'tes, new Hellenes, to 
Antonius Alexander the most high epistrategus, greeting. You are aware, highest 
of procurators, you who during your procuratorship have been especially concerned with 
the exceptional rights claimed by our native city, that originally the deified Hadrian . . . 
[distinguishing] it from the other cities in Egypt clearly established the law that we should 
bear office and burdens nowhere but at home, and we were relieved of all offices and 
burdens elsewhere ; and next ... his successors on the throne often confirmed our immunity 
in this respect, and they have been scrupulously followed by the praefects appointed from 
time to time and by you the most high epistrategi, who not only release us from all 
external offices and burdens but also punish the lawlessness of those who attempt to offend 
against the Imperial legislation and the judgements of praefects. Whereas, then, Aurelius 
Theon and Aurelius Arsinoiis . . . our fellow-citizens have approached us in a petition 
accusing Sarapion, amphodogrammateus of the city of Oxyrhynchus, of having illegally 
nominated them both for the collection of money-taxes in the metropolis, ... we apply to 
your heedfulness in order that you may direct the strategus of the said nome to have one of 
two things done, namely that the amphodogrammateus, if he gives way, should nominate to 
the office other persons in their stead, or else [be compelled to] appear before you at your 
coming auspicious visit, in order that in accordance with the ancestral usages of our 
constitution he may render an account for his outrage upon the Imperial laws and the 
judgements of praefects ... We pray for your health. The second year of the Marci Julii, 
Hathur 30th. 

* Copy of the letter. Antonius Alexander to the strategus of the Oxyrhynchite nome,

greeting. I have ordered the document sent me by the officials and senate of the 
illustrious city of the Antinoites, new Hellenes, to be appended for your information to 
this letter. See that the amphodogrammateus whom they accuse of having nominated to 
the office of collector members of their polity appear ... to give an account for his 
defiance of the law, if he still attempts to subject them to the office as persons within 
his province. I pray for your health. The second year of the Marci Julii, Mecheir 3. 

' Copy of the report. To Aurelius Dius also called Pertinax, strategus of the Oxyrhyn-

I received from you on Phamenoth the ist a missive to which was appended a copy of 
a letter written to you by Antonius Alexander, the most high epistrategus, with an enclosure 
in the latter of the appeal made to him by the most high senate of the Antinoiles on 
behalf of Aurelius Theon and Aurelius Arsinoiis, twins . . ., who were nominated by 
me for the collection of money-taxes in the metropohs, one of whom, Arsinoiis, . . ., 
directing that I should go down to appear before the most high epistrategus, if I still attempt 
to subject them to the burden as persons within our province. I have accordingly 
investigated the matter and found that they possess hereditary Antinoite rights, and 
I immediately on learning this undertook the burden on their behalf; I accordingly make 
this report. The second year of the Marci Julii, Pharmouthi 1 3. 

' Presented by us, Aurelius Theon and Aurelius Arsinoiis, sons of Theon. 

' Delivered by me, . . . 3rd year, Mesore 29 . . . pages 25-27.' 

1. κη is an official number; cf. 1. 30. 

2. φυλάρχ(ω): this title does not seem to have occurred in other papyri of the period, 
but Wilcken informs me that it is found in a fourth-century Leipzig papyrus which he is 
editing in his Chrestomathie ; cf. the γνωστηρ φυλ{ψ) of P. Leipzig 65. 7. 

4. Άντωνίω 'Αλίξάν8ρω : cf. 1. 2 2. This epistrategus of the Heptanomia is not otherwise 
known. 

5. For the date cf. 11. 13-14 and 30. It is at first sight surprising, because the Galli 
only just reached their third year, and the accession of Valerian and Gallienus must have 
been known in Egypt long before the end of August of 254. The explanation probably is 
that the covering note of the strategus was, like the petition, written early in the year, and 
that the month, which is by the same hand as that which inserted Μΐσορή in 1. 14, was 
subsequently added without any modification of the regnal year. This will not account for the 
date in 1. 30, which, however, might very naturally be made to conform to those in 11. 2 and 5. 

6. neptoSf : cf. 1030. 2, where the word should be taken, as here, in a temporal and 
not a local sense. For the αμφο8α in connexion with Xeirovpyiai cf 1116. 5 and note, B. G. U. 
958. c. 11-12 roO vvv\ λιτουργουντος άμφόδου. The initial supplement here is rather long, but 
perhaps this first line projected slightly. 

7. ΐκύσε: i.e. probably at Antinoopolis ; cf. 1. 12. The division cm σε is less likely. 

8. προσήλθομίν ttj κρατίστί] βονλ^ : cf. Β. G. U. I02 2, a petition to the Antinoite senate 
on a similar occasion. For ονχ ησνχάσα]μ(ν cf. e.g. P. Flor. 57. 50, B. G. U. 908. 13, 
P. Tebt. 330. 8 ; but of course various other phrases are possible. 

10. For the supplement cf. 1. 20. 

11. Cf. 1. 28; but why the amphodogrammateus himself undertakes the Xeirovpyla, as 
he apparently does, is not clear. The βουλή in 1. 20 only asks that he should be made to 
nominate other persons. 

12. Cf. 487. 15 Tjj yeopyia μου νροσ€υκ(ρ7ν. The λίΐτουργία to which the petitioners had 
been appointed at Antinoopolis was apparently some burden which the μητροπόλίΐς undertook 
in turn. πρ6ε τό may be supplied instead of 8ia τ6, ' in order that he may.'

is to the present and not, as τώ χράνω τψ imrponTjs at first suggests, to a previous office of 
Antonius Alexander. The supplement at the beginning of the line both here and in 1. 25 
is somewhat shorter than would be expected, but this may be explained by supposing that 
spaces were left before χα]ίρ(ίν and παρ]ά ; or perhaps iotas adscript were written. 

16. The first letter is probably η, ν, or ρ : perhaps χω]ρ{()ίς. Cf. Β. G. U. 1022. 6-10

For ηγούμενοι τοΰ Wvovs cf. 1020. 5• 

22-3. The insertion of δπω? etS.^? gives the sentence the form of an indirect question. 
The use of Ws for δ? is found in the N. T., e. g. Mark xiv. 36, Luke xvii. 8, as well as in 
papyri and inscriptions, e. g. 1155. 13, B. G. U. 822. 5, P. Brit. Mus. 239. 10, but is perhaps 
better avoided in a comparatively well written document hke the present. 

26. δνδυμα[•γ€νων : cf. e.g. B. G. U. 26. ID, 115. i. 12. This fact has not previously

27. hv τον eTfp[o]v κτλ. : cf. 1. 12 ; Πατίρμ . [ scems to be some local Oxyrhynchite name. 
A verb to govern the accusative has to be supplied, but there is very little room for it ; 
perhaps there has been some omission. 

28. νπίστ]ην is obtained from 1. 11 ; cf. the note there.

1120. Petition. 

27x9-5 cm. Early third century. 

This petition, like 1117, is no more than a draft ; it lacks address and conclu- 
sion, and the name of the vi^riter, a widow, is not given. She accuses one man of 
an outrage upon her son-in-law and another of an act of violence against herself. 
The document may have been intended for the strategus.

' In the consulship of the present consuls. To Aurelius Ammonias, beneficiarius of 
the praefect of Egypt, from Aurelia Techosis daughter of Diodorus and Techosis, of the 
Small Oasis, now living at the illustrious and most illustrious city of Oxyrhynchus. No 
small danger and no ordinary severity awaits those who lightly give themselves over to 
plunder and robbery of the property of others. I therefore, being the victim of a most 
outrageous attack and robbery, approach you to testify to the assault upon me. Techosis, 
my aforesaid mother, was stricken with illness, and I in the goodness of my heart nursed 
and tended her and was assiduous in performing what is owing from children to parents. 
When a few days ago she died intestate, leaving me her daughter heir in accordance with 
the law I provided for her funeral and did all that was fitting on the occasion of her death. 
While i was occupied with my trouble, I know not on what ground or with what impulse, 
a certain Sotas and Papontos, who are my neighbours in the same house where my mother 
lived possessing themselves of the extensive movables left by her, a considerable amount of 
gold,' a quantity of furniture, some very valuable clothes, and other things, lawlessly carried 
them all off, on what inducement I cannot tell. I am about to demand satisfaction for this 
of the superior official, and in order that they may put in an appearance I perforce present 
this petition, testifying to the assault and requesting that they may be compelled to provide 
written security that they will stay and appear, since I am already having recourse to the 
official, and that a copy of this document be prepared through your grace for the praetect s 
office.' Date and signature of Aurelia Techosis, written for her by Aurelius Agathodaemon. 

I The document is dated on Feb. 8 (1. 30) when the names of the consuls for 
the year were very likely not yet known. This is a more probable reason for their omission 
than the desire for brevity which prompted the formula εφ' 'κρίων και Upei&p των ίντων και 
οίσών in the later Ptolemaic contracts. Cf. the use of 8η\ωθησόμ€νος and άπο8^χθησόμ€νο5,

In this contract the incoming tenant of some domain-land guarantees the 
daughter of the late cultivator, who had died, against any future demands for 
dues upon the land, over which he is given full rights, while he apparently 
promises to make no claims to any other part of the estate. The situation may 
be contrasted with that of 899, where the daughter and heir of a cultivator of 
domain-land petitions to be released from the responsibility (theoretically 
illegal) of continuing the cultivation ; cf. B. G. U. 648, Rostowzew, Rom. Kolonat, 
pp. 196-7. In the present instance the heir was more fortunate and had found 
somebody willing to relieve her by becoming the tenant in her father's place.

in itself very satisfactory. a[ir]r^y could be read, but is also unconvincing. 

1 9 sqq. Apion here seems to be renouncing claims to property other than the land, 
and the proposed restoration proceeds on that hypothesis. The desirability of such 
a stipulation is evident from a comparison of B. G. U. 648, where the claim to the 
petitioner's inheritance was based on the cultivation of her father's βασιλική yrj.

' . . . the rent being free of all risk. If any demand be made upon the lessee for the 
government or for any other purpose on account of Dionysius or the land, the amount 
shall be deducted from the rent ; and Dionysius and his agents shall retain the ownership 
of the crops until he recover the rent. The lease being guaranteed, the lessee shall pay 
to Dionysius the rent in the month Pauni of the said year at the threshing-floors of Isieum 
Tryphonis in wheat that is new, pure, unadulterated, and unmixed with barley, by the 
4-choenix measure of Ammonius son of Ptolemaeus, or shall forfeit as the value of every 
artaba which he does not pay . . . drachmae of silver and double the rent of the land 
sown with green produce, while the penalty for abandoning the cultivation, in addition 
to the amounts aforesaid, shall be loo drachmae of silver and to the treasury an equal 
sum ; and Dionysius shall have the right of execution upon the lessee or anyone he chooses 
and upon all his property as if in accordance with a legal decision. This lease is valid.' 
Date and signature of Dionysius. 

3-5. Cf. P. Tebt. 105. 48 and 277. 8-10, where η τ\η\ί yijs is to be read, as here, before 

υττίολογίίτωι. 

12. For similar measures cf. e. g. 101. 40, P. Tebt 376. 24, note, P. Strassb. i. 9, note. 

13-15. It may be inferred from this distinction between the rent in wheat and that on 
the land άπο ξνλαμης that different categories of produce had been previously specified. 
ξνΚαμή and ξυλαμαν are almost always used of green crops like αρακος or χόρτος.

9-2Xii-iocm. Second century. 

Part of a contract for a lease of some land, with an advance from one of the 
lessors of aoo drachmae at the usual rate of interest. The formula is similar to 
that of 101 and 501.

' . . . half an artaba of wheat annually. The lessee further acknowledges the receipt 
from Dionysius singly of an advance of 200 drachmae of silver at the interest of a drachma 
per mina every month, from the present month Thoth, which sum together with the interest 
he will return to Dionysius in the month Pauni of the present year or will pay for the 
overtime interest at the same rate of one drachma, all free of all risk. If any part of the 
land is unirrigated from the present year, an allowance shall be made to the lessee. The 
annual taxes upon the land are to be borne by the lessors in proportion to their share of 
the land leased ; and they shall have the ownership of the crop until they receive their dues. 
The lease being guaranteed, the lessee shall deliver annually at the public granary at his 
own expense the specified rent, while he shall place on deposit free of all deductions for 
the lessors, for each the rent of the part leased by him, every year at the time of the first 
measuring . . .'

arourae, total 4 arourae, by the measure of a fair measuring-line, the boundaries being on

auspicious 14th indiction, at a fixed rent as agreed between us of 13 carats of gold oil the 
private standard for each aroura, making together 52 carats of pure metal on the pnvate 
standard ; and we will pay the rent of these to you at the time of the collection of pubhc 
taxes in the 14th indiction without delay or dispute of any kind, at the risk of all our 
property, which is pledged to you for this purpose. The lease is valid and guaranteed, and 
in answer to the question we have given our consent.' Signatures of the lessees, and 
endorsement on the verso. 

3. There are traces of ink after υτταρχώντων, though nothing is wanting for the sense. 

4. προστασία^ : cf. 1134. 7. The land leased clearly belonged to a considerable 
administrative area, and was perhaps of a similar kind to that concerned in 1134 ; but more 
probably προστασία here means simply patrocinium, the parties to the contract being a 
patron and one of his dependents. ^ ^ 

6-7. Cf. e. g. P. Amh. 95. 4, 12, 96. 3 δίκαι'ω σχοινίω, C. P. R. 4O• H» &C., πρόϊ αναμί- 
τρησιν. For τάλη or Ταλά»;, which was in the Κωίτης τόπος of the Heracleopolite nome, cf. 
P. Hibeh 36. 3, note. It is to be distinguished from the Oxyrhynchite Ταλαώ. 

8-9. λιδν or λι8ης seems from its repetition to be a common, not a proper name. 
Possibly it is for λιτή or -ψ as an equivalent of ^/^tλ7} ; cf. Alexand. Aetol. ap. Athen. 296 c 
XiTTj φΰΐί eiapi γαίη. 

9-1 0. So e.g. C. P. R. 41. 14-15 «'Ϊ σποραν πνροΰ els τον σπόρον του ΐνεστώτος κα

12. ιδιωηκ(ω): cf. 1138. 5, note. 

16-17. That υμών is a misspelling for ημών is indicated by the next line, of which the 
sense is fairly evident though the construction is obscure ; cf. the phrase found in 136. 
39-41 and elsewhere κα\ vπeθeμeθa els TO 8ίκαιον τούτου του συvάkλάyμaτos πάντα ημών τα υπάρ- 
χοντα . . . (νεχύρου λόγω και υπoθήκηs δικαι'ω. υπ[ at the beginning of 1. 1 7 suggests υποκ€ίμίνου

19. 'E[p/ii]as is suggested by the verso, but the difference in the case makes the restora- 
tion doubtful. The third letter of the next name may be ω. 



1127. Lease of a Pigeon-house. 

28•ι Χ7•5 cm. a.d. 183. 

Lease of an upper room with a pigeon-cote for four years at an annual rent 
of 60 drachmae. Cf. the fragmentary P. Flor. lo, where two ireptorepecui/es and 
a κέΚλα are let for 400 drachmae in the middle of the next century, and for the 
formula 502, 911-12, 1036, 1128.

' The year after the consulship of Flavius Troconda the most illustrious, Pachon 9, 
7th indiction. Aurelius Abraham son of Ision and Sophia, of the village of Senokomis in 
the Oxyrhynchite nome, to Aurelius Isaac son of Nilus, of the capital city Alexandria, 
dealer, greeting. I acknowledge, my former bond remaining valid and secure, that I have 
now received from you as a loan from hand to hand out of your house for my own pressing 
need ten solidi of gold of the genuine Imperial coinage, of full weight and unalloyed, total 
10 solidi of gold, as a capital sum, and for interest upon it up to the term herein following 
I will pay twenty bundles of tow, pure and satisfactory, according to the weight of the 
village, total 20 bundles. This sum I will perforce repay to you free of all risk in the 
month Phaophiof the current i6ist which = the 130th year, at the beginning of the eighth 
indiction, without delay or dispute of any kind, with the condition that it shall not be lawful 
for me to say that I have paid any of the aforesaid debt without a written deed or receipt 
or before the recovery and annulment of this my bond. If at the expiry of the term I do 
not make the payment to you and you are willing at my request to grant me another term, 
I will pay you this sum with the same interest for the overtime, and you shall have the right of 
execution upon me and all my property. This bond, of which a single copy is made, is 
vaUd, and in answer to the question I have given my consent.' Signature of Aurelms 
Abraham written for him by Banos, deacon, signature of the scribe, and endorsement on the 
verso. 

1. χμγ: cf. 940. I, note. 

2. Cf. Cod.Just.\v.^g.2postconsulatum Trocondae; he is commonly called Trocondus, 

The nomen Flavius appears to be new. 

3. There is an inconsistency between this date and the year of the mdiction m 1. 2. 
Pachon 9 of the year after the consulship of Trocondus is May 4, a.d. 483, but Pachon 9 
of the 7th indiction is May 4, a.d. 484• The number of the indiction year is supported by 
ογδώι;? in 1. 1 6 and confirmed by the years of the Oxyrhynchite eras in the same line, where, 
though eV€στωΓou(J^■ί•)must be an error for daiovros (cf. the note adloc), it is implied that the 
current year was a.d. 484, not 483. Toif τό βί μετά should therefore have been written in 
1. 2, if the name of the consul for a.d. 484, Theodericus, who occurs in Cod. Just. i. 3. 36, &c., 
on April 28, was not generally known.

as suggested by Wilcken, Archiv i. p. 556. For other instances of interest in kind cf.

the νομισμάτια; the sentence would be improved by some conjunction, e.g. ταντα δε, or 
perhaps (5) should be inserted. 

15-16. Numerous instances show that the year by the eras of Oxyrhynchus began, 
like the ordinary Egyptian year, on Thoth i ; cf. introd. to 125. Since the contract is 
dated in Pachon (1. 3), to speak of the coming ' Phaophi of the present year ' is a contradic- 
tion, and ΐ'νβστωτου must be a slip for eiVtovro?. Though the remains of the figures after ρξ 
are very slight there is little real doubt about the reading, and I consider ρξ ρκθ to be 
inadmissible ; cf. the note on 1. 2. The reference to Phaophi as the άρχη of the new 
indiction, which usually began in Egypt in the latter part of Pauni, is not to be taken 
strictly.

Acknowledgement of the return of a loan of 600 drachmae, which was being

the interest charged was at double the normal rate.

the note on 513. 37 it was suggested that the persons who successively gave their names to 
the bank were more probably ' either the άσχουΚοΰμΐνοι or the ΐπιτηρηταίοΐ it than the owners '. 
This view now receives some confirmation so far as the ίπιτηρηταί are concerned, and the 
theory that they were only mentioned in 91 because at the time there was no τραπεζίτης 
(Wilcken, Archiv v. p. 212, note 4, Preisigke, Girowesen,•^^. 21-3) becomes less plausible.

acknowledgement of indebtedness had previously been made by the latter at 
the time of the sale (cf. e.g. 1131), but this could not now be found and handed 
back to him, and therefore the present document was drawn up releasing him 
from further obligations in the matter.

paid in full the four gold solidi less 600 myriads due for the price of the produce of the said 
village, and I have no claim upon you in respect of this, and I make and will make 
no charge against you ; and since your bond has been lost and cannot be found I declare

for your security and in answer to the question have given my consent.' Signatures

I. The brothers Olybrius and Probinus do not seem to have been given elsewhere the 
name Flavius.

8-9. This great depreciation of the μνριάς at the end of the fourth century is somewhat 
surprising. The passage does not necessarily prove that 600 myriads were less than a single 
solidus (cf. e. g. 1138. 6-8), but they must have at least been considerably less than four. 
Late in the Byzantine period the value of the μνριάί was very much lower than this 
(We^sely, Alkrsindiz. im Philogelos, pp. 45-6), but for the fourth century the ratio of 
I : no \ibid. pp. 32-3) seems to be the highest that has previously occurred.

during the preceding two years from local cultivators. A contract of a kind 
similar to 136, the phraseology of which is recalled by 1134 (cf. note on 11. 7-10), 
had probably been previously engaged in by the agent. The document, which 
might have been included in section {a), is well written in a large and

1135. TAXATION 235 

(e) TAXATION. 
1135. Receipt for Anabolicum. 

9•8Χ9•2 cm. Third century. 

This and the following papyrus are receipts for άναβολικόν or, as it is termed 
in 1135, iepbv αναβολικού, issued in the one case by collectors (άπαιτηταί) in the 
other by an * assistant ' (βοηθοί). The first receipt, which seems to have been 
written about the middle of the third century, is for a money payment, the 
second, dated A.D. 420, is for four tunics. Apparently the only other papyrus 
mentioning the anabolicum is P. Thdad. Inv. 15 (the reference to which I owe 
to Wilcken; cf. Archiv iv. p. 185), a receipt issued in A.D. 324 by the a-nohUrai 
λίνου του Upov αναβολικού for 50 pounds of flax. The name has also occurred on 
some leaden tablets, and in the Edict of Julius Alexander, C. I. G. 4957 = 
Dittenberger, Or. Gr. Inscr. 669. 21 αναβολικά ίίληφόσι ck του φίσκον ; cf Vopiscus, 
Aurel. 45 vectigal ex Aegypto urbi Romae Aurelianus vitri, chartae^ lint, stuppae 
atque anabolicas species aeternas constituit. On the nature of this impost see 
Rostowzew's discussion in Mitt. d. Arch. Inst., Rom. Abth. 1896, pp. 317 sqq., 
Wuch. Klass. Phil. 1900, 115; he points out that the commodities mentioned 
by Vopiscus were, with corn, for which there was the special word annona, the 
principal exports of Egypt {άναβάλλίΐν = to lade a ship), and describes the ratio 
anabolica as the taxes upon a certain group of monopolized Egyptian industries.

1019. 3. At the end of the line κλ»;ρ(οί'ό/;χωΐ') (Wilcken) is preferable to κΚηρ(ον).

3, αιγεωθητης is probably, aS Wilcken remarks, for αίγο&ύτης or αίγιοθύτης; cf. προβατο-

4. For the collection of στιχάρια for the clothes-tax cf P. Leipzig 59. 13, 60. 14. 
Mitteis notes in connexion with those two documents (p. 186) that according to Cod. Theod. 
vii. 6. 3 of A. D. 377 this impost Avas in Egypt payable in money (cf e.g. B. G. U. 21. iii. 
17-18, 727. 14), and thinks that the delivery in kind attested by P. Leipzig 45-6, 58-60 
is due to the fact that they are all earlier than the year 377. But this view will not account 
for 1136, and hence it is necessary to fall back on the alternative explanation that the 
adaeratio was permissive only and not compulsory.

{/) ORDERS. 
1139. Order from a Logistes. 

5*5 X 17*5 cm. Fourth century. 

An order from a logistes directing the presidents of the guild of vegetable- 
dealers to supply an exceptor with a certain quantity of vegetables. These trade- 
guilds are frequently mentioned in the papyri of this period, e.g. 53 (carpenters), 
84 (ironworkers), 85 (coppersmiths, beersellers, bakers, oil-sellers, bee-keepers) ; 
cf. Ziebarth, Griech. Vereinswesen^ pp. 96 sqq. The order is written on the verso, 
the recto containing the beginnings of lines from a list of payments dated in 
Hathur of the 17th = the 15th = the 7th year, i. e. A. D. 322 (cf. Wilcken, Archiv

3. ταγήν : the word is commonly used in late Greek in the sense of food, especially 
fodder for horses, e.g. Chron. Pasch. p. 138 b ^ ταγ^ αΐτον . . . itapa τον βασιλ/ω?, p. 254a 
«V ταγ^ν ΐπτΓου. In the present passage, as in B. G. U. II18. 16 ttpaaov yXvKeas rayas λ

I. Cf. 741. I Xoy(oi) ΐΐτολικων, a list of articles ordered, and B. G. U. 953. νποστάθμιον 
is apparently an adjective formed from υποστάθμη, 'sediment.' The division νπ6 σταθμίον 
' by weight ' is unsatisfactory, since the article immediately mentioned was to be measured. 

3. For πατήματος cf. 1156. 9, where it is evidently a kind of fodder. Perhaps trodden 
grapes were so used (cf. B. G. U. 1039. 4 ot πατηταί), or straw of some sort may be meant 
(cf. P. Flor. 150. 5 πατησαι τα . . . βίρη). πατητόί as an epithet of φοϊνιξ (e. g. B. G. U. 591. 
22) has a different sense. βρ(λλιον, apparently an unknown form, is perhaps for βδίλλων, 
which occurs in conjunction with οι/υξ in Galen, De Antidol. ii.

Both this and the following papyrus are fragments of accounts of payments 
in connexion with one or other of the Oxyrhynchite temples. Not improbably 
they come from the annual reports of receipt and expenditure which it was 
incumbent upon the priests to submit to the civil officials of the nome ; cf. 
P. Tebt. 298, introd. The ' deified lord emperor ' on whose behalf were made the 
sacrifices and libations recorded in 1. 4, was no doubt Augustus, to whose reign 
this document, from the handwriting, is to be attributed.

6. Upas κλ(^νηί = kc/ts/ernn. Cf. e.g. Pausan. viii. 37. 2 κλίνη re Upa της ' Αθήνα!, 

Marquardt, liom. Siaatsverw. iii. p. 46, 110. 2 κ\(ίνην τοΰ κυρίου "Σαράπώος. 

7-8. Not yeveOXiois θ(οΰ Κλαυ8ίυυ ΟΓ Ν€ρωνοί Κλαυδίου, since neither Claudius nor Nero 
was born in the month Germaniceus (Pachon) or Germanicus (Thoth). But if, as is possible, 
the name Germaniceus was given by Claudius, a festival in his honour in that month would 
be natural enough. 

1 7. Payments in kind begin at this point ; Wilcken aptly compares the similar arrange- 
ment in B. G. U. I. 17. 



1146. Account of a Sitologus. 

27-8 X 25-6 cm. First century. 

A fragment from an account recording amounts of wheat delivered on 
different days by various persons who are arranged under their villages, — 
apparently part of the day-book of a sitologus ; cf. e. g. P. Fay. 340. The begin- 
nings of lines of a second column, mentioning the village Ίσίήου Ύρύφον[ο9 (1. 
Ύρύφωνοί) and the names Taairis, Μαώ?, Ά,βτι/χαρα[, and Nii'yai'6/)os( = NtKaj;6poi ?),

p. 8) were perhaps near the boundary of the Oxyrhynchite and Heracleopolite nomes. 

2. The meaning of the θ which has been prefixed to most of the names, apparently by 
the same hand as the rest of the account, is uncertain. Above it is a curved or angular 
mark such as is elsewhere used in this papyrus to indicate an abbreviation. In the second 
column this θ is omitted with four names out of fifteen. The letter is sometimes found in 
such a position to indicate a person's decease (= θάνατο!, e.g. P. Fay. 105. iii. 26), but its 
frequency here is hardly consistent with that interpretation. Does it stand for θησαυροί ? 

4. θίω[νος κωμών is probably to be restored on this analogy in 740. 35.

15. The dash after 'Arpijs takes the place of the father's name; there is another 
instance in Col. ii. Cf. e. g. B. G. U. 1150. 3, Archiv v. p. 391. 

18. The foregoing items add up to i22| artabae 20 choenices, which are expressed 
in the total as i23i artabae, showing that the artaba here used contained 40 choenices; cf. 
1044, introd. 

22. The Alexandrian deme-name EiXfi^uwy has already occurred in 377 and 623. 



1146. Account of Payments. 

15-7 X 12-5 cm. Early fourth century. 

A fragment of a list of payments to various persons. There are remains of 
two columns, of which the first consists only of a row of amounts in money, 
ranging from 380 drachmae up to 9 talents. The second column, though the 
ends of the lines are lost, is worth printing on account of some unusual words. 



246 THE OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRI 

This account is on the verso ; the recto contains a fragment of a document, 
apparently a petition concerning the division of an inheritance, mentioning a 
κονράτωρ and την bmaLoboaiav bioiKovvTi, i. e. a deputy iuridicus.

10. ϋποκανσττ] : this word occurs in P. Leyden S iii. 30, vii. 8, Τ i. 5, where no doubt 
it is a dative masculine, not, as given by Leemans, a nominative feminine. It means, 
apparently, a stoker; cf. e. g. B. G. U. 760. 10. 

13. Idiov may be a word in itself, hufsipov is unsuitable for the preceding name.

An account of sums which had not been included in ' the great list ' but had 
either been paid since or were still owing. Some of the items have been subse- 
quently cancelled. The account is described in the heading as relating to the 
district (διοίκησις) of a cojnes, and mentions several familiar village names (cf. e. g. 
998 and 1053).

1148. ORACULAR QUESTIONS, AMULETS, ETC. 249 



{h) ORACULAR QUESTIONS, AMULETS, etc. 
1148. Question to the Oracle. 

7.1 X 5-8 cm. First century. 

The two following papyri contain questions addressed to the oracle of 
Serapis, who in 1148 is identified with Helios, in 1149 with Zeus-Helios. Cf. 923, 
which in the light of 1149 is now intelligible, and the analogous documents to 
which references are there given. The text is written in a crabbed cursive hand 
across the fibres of the recto. 

Kvpii μου papain "Ηλί€

10 Κ€. '4ρρω[σο). 

4• yvvaik Pap. 

* Ο lord Serapis Helios, beneficent one, is it better for my son Phanias and his wife 
not to agree now with his father, but to oppose him and make no contract ? Tell me 
this truly. Goodbye.' 

1. Σαραπι "UXie : cf. 1149. I. The identification of Sarapis with Zeus and Helios is 
found in many inscriptions. 

2. e?: so e.g. Wessely, Scrip/, Gr, Spec. 26 « ol[v hOporai. ^ is probably meant, 
though a word like «ρωτώ could readily be supplied, el might also be regarded here 
as the conditional particle, 'if it is better . . ., grant me an oracle in that sense,' and this 
would make σύμφωνον somewhat easier; cf. 1150. 2. But the parallel examples are in 
favour of taking the first sentence as a question; cf. 1149. 3-4, P. Fay. 138. 2 χρημάτισαν 
μοι, η μΐίνωι iv Βακχιάδι, &c. σύμφωνον will then mean 'in accordance with truth' or 
' expediency '.

Β. G. υ. 2 29• 3""4 ν Μ^" σοβήσωι (1. μην σωθησομαϊ) . . ., τοντό[ν] μοι i^iviKov. It doeS not, 

I think, mean 'bring this to pass' as translated in P. Fay. 138, but 'deliver an oracle', 
'give an answer', like χρημάτισαν in P. Fay. 137. 4; cf. P. Giessen 20. 18 (χρ[η]ιχατίσβψ νπο 
των Διοσκούρων, and 1150. 6, note. 



1149. Question to the Oracle. 

9-7 X 6-1 cm. Second century. 

Λ question similar to 1148 addressed to the oracle of Zeus-Helios-Serapis, 
whether it would be expedient to purchase a slave. The writing is at right 
angles to the fibres of the recto.

' To Zeus Helios, great Serapis, and the associate gods. Nice asks whether it is 
expedient for her to buy from Tasarapion her slave Sarapion also called Gaion. Grant 
me this.' 

1 sqq. On this analogy 923. 1-4 may now be restored [Διι Ή]λ/ω μ(•γά\[ω 2αράπί|δι. 

eptOTJacri σε Άπίων [καΐ] Τ . , [.]t . . νη 'Ε|ακάι/τ[οϊ χρημ^ατίσαι (cf. Ρ. Fay. 1 37• ^) α^'Ό'ί• 

μ[. . . .] in Κ 6 is no doubt a person. 

9. Cf. 923. 14-15 TovTo fjpe'iv δο'ί. δο'ί means 'give a reply', like χρημάτισαν and 
f^eveyKov ; cf. note on 1148. 9. 

^ There is no need to suppose with Wilamowitz, Gott. Gel. Anz. 1901, p. 40, that Kpeiverai is for Kpivfre ; 
cf. Wessely, Script. Gr. Spec. 26 i? ov[v δ£]δοτοί μοι, where a single deity is addressed. 



1150. ORACULAR QUESTIONS, AMULETS, ETC. 251 

1150. Christian Prayer. 

7-5 X 10-8 cm. Sixth century. 

This prayer asking for guidance is, like 925, a Christian analogue of the 
questions to pagan deities exemplified in 1148-9. As with the amulets (cf. 
1151-2), the old practice was carried on under a different nomenclature. 

+ 
+ Ό ^eoy τον ττροστάτου ήμώι^

e/s το νοσοκομΐον σου Ανονπ ; 
5 8ei^ov την Βνναμ\ίν σου 
και ^iiXOr} το 7Γΐττ[ά]κ[ιον. 

' Ο God of our patron Saint Philoxenus, dost thou bid us take Anoup to thy hospital ? 
Show thy power and let this prayer be accomplished.' 

2. Φιλοξίνον: cf. 1151. 48, note. 

The occurrence of eav here might be held to confirm the view that el and ^ in the 
parallel passages are really conditional (cf. note on 1148. 2) ; but 1149. 3 supplies strong 
evidence on the other side, and eai/may be explained as an indirect interrogative, as e.g. in 
Xen. Mem. iv, 4. 1 2 σκίψαι iav . . . άρίσκη ; cf the use of av in modern Greek. 

6. The first τ of ■ηιττ[ά]κ[ιον is irregularly written, but I can see no alternative. Cf. 
Wessely, Script. Gr. Spec. 26. 5-6 v-t:6bfi^6v (so we should read, as the facsimile shows, not 
ΰΐΓ08(ξον for νπόδ(ξαι, as W.) μοι κα\1] κνρωσ[όυ] μοι τοίιτο το γραπτάν. ' May my prayer have an 
answer ' is probably the real meaning. 



1151. Christian Amulet. 

23-4 X 4-4 cm. Fifth century (?). 

An elaborate charm, designed to ward off fever and other ills. Its phrase- 
ology is purely Christian, with no admixture of heathen magic. The opening 
verses of St. John's Gospel are quoted, just as the Lord's prayer is inserted in 
B. G. U. 954 ; and the Virgin and several saints are appealed to. The papyrus 
when found was tightly folded, and tied with a string ; it is written in a clear 
upright hand, approximating to a literary type. Cf 924, 1077, Wilcken, Archiv i. 
pp. 429 sqq.

the intercession of our lady the mother of God and the glorious archangels and Saint Joh^n, 
the glorious apostle and evangelist and divine, and Saint Serenus and Saint Philoxenus and 
Saint Victor and Saint Justus and all the Saints. Upon thy name, Ο Lord God, have 
I called, the wonderful and exceeding glorious name, the terror of thy foes. Amen.' 

7-8. The allusion is to John v. 2 ^στιν be . . . eVl τη προβατικη κόΚνμβηθρα.

22. ούδί «/ : so t^cABC, &c. ; ouSeV t>i*D. In ending the sentence at δ yeyovtv, instead 
of connecting those words with the following sentence, the writer is in accord with

A letter from a father to his son, who, it appears from the address on the

kinds. Nicanor, who is frequently mentioned, and was in the son's company, 
was perhaps his brother.

of having made some time ago and presented to you ; write and acknowledge their receipt.

you at home. The blankets have been cut out ; the account of them, as jou write, shall

The subjects of this letter are a registration, evidently for the census, and 
a payment of the poll-tax, both of which the writer wished his sister to undertake 
for him. He was uncertain whether she would be allowed to register him in his 
absence, and he asks her, in case this should not be possible, to let him know, in 
order that he might come and do it for himself.

' To my sister, mistress Dionysia, from Patliermouthis, greeting. As you sent me 
word on account of the registration about registering yourselves, since I cannot come, see 
whether you can register us. Do not then neglect to register us, me and Patas ; but if you 
learn that you cannot register us, reply to me and I will come. Find out also about the 
collection of the poll-tax, and if they are [hurrying on with] the collection of the poll-tax, 
pay it and I will send you the money ; and if you pay the poll-tax, get the receipt. Do 
not neglect this, my sister, and write to me about the registration, whether you have done 
it or not, and reply to me and I will come and register myself. I pray for your lasting 
health. (Addressed) Deliver to Dionysia from Pathermouthis.' 

lo. The name Uaras occurs in P. Brit. Mus. 1170. 264. There is a small hole in the 
papyrus immediately after the v, but if another letter, except t or o, had been added, it would 
be partly visible. 

14-15. The context indicates that the writer wishes his correspondent to get 
information and is not himself giving it, so that μάθί δτι . . . άπαιτοΰσιν practically means 
' find out when they are collecting '. 

15-16. Tfs seems to be the termination of a participle of which the commencement has 
been accidentally omitted ; the sense requires some such word as {fneiyov)Tfs. For the 

construction cf, e.g. P. Tebt. 333. 13 eav ησάν τι τταθ6ντ(5, 423. 1 8 eav ovv μη jjs λαβών.

we pray for your prosperity and that of your whole house. Many times in the day we

from him four talents which he had from us when he was at Alexandria, See that you do 
not neglect this. If you get the four talents from him, when you come to us, buy us some 
provisions for our use and obtain stores and send them to us. You must know that I have 
written to Aretion to give you the four talents. As you said that you Λvish for . . ., I will send 
it you when it is brought. I got the Cnidian jar of vinegar from Ammonas, and I have sent 
you by him a basket of dainties and a . . . We greet our sister and her daughter Helenous 
and her daughter. Greet Aphunchis and Techosis and Ptolemaeus from us. If yoa learn 
that Aretion is going to accuse you about the copper, write to me and I will send him 
an addition. I pray for your lasting health.' Address. 

2. The position of Σαραπίωνι and the use of ij/xel? and σύ make it clear that Έαραπίων 
was intended. 

12. ταγαριζα is probably for ταγαρίΒια, a double diminutive of ταγή, for which cf. 1139. 3 
and note, τά γαρί8ια {γάροή seems less likely. For the interchange of δ and ζ cf. 11. 1 6 and

15. τταστάδα, if that is the right reading, cannot here have its ordinary meaning. It 
may possibly be connected with the form of sauce called πάστη or πάστα. 

1 8. σολ(ΐν is for σόλιον, which occurs also in 741. 8 σόλια άρσινικα Cevy{q) ς. Wilamowitz 
proposed to interpret the term in that passage as the Latin soleae, but the occurrence of the 
singular here is not in favour of this explanation. See moreover P. Cairo Cat. 67006. 47

' To my revered father Origenes, many greetings from Trophimus. Before all else 
I send many salutations to you and your consort Copria and Isidorus and Phullon and 
Helene and all our friends severally. You wrote to me in your letter that my boastfulness 
earns me the name of " Gift of Zeus " because I sent you money ; but I do not boast about 
what I sent you by Philoxenus. If you have sold the various things which I sent you, write 
to me in order that I may send you more. I have been idle here for two months, other- 
wise I would have sent you all some more. I am keeping for the trial the money that 
I have collected; for I am waiting for the memoranda. You wrote to me, " Petition against 
Polydeuces." If the memoranda come to me, I will petition against him and against 
Sarapodorus. If it seems good to you, send me a pot of oil. You wrote to me " You are 
staying at Alexandria with your paramour ". Write and tell me, who is my paramour. 
I pray for your health. (Addressed) Deliver to Origenes from Trophimus.' 

8-9. The name Diodorus seems to have been jestingly applied to the son on account 
of his liberalities.

A letter from a priest commending a brother- Christian to the good offices

the size of the writing, 11. 5, 9, 12 and the word (ρρώσθαι in 1. 13 being especially

1163. Letter to Heraclammon. 

18 x30.6 cm. Fifth century. 

This incomplete letter, which is addressed to a comes, was written from the 
Cyrenaica giving news of the writer's movements. The writing in this and the 
two following papyri, as usual in Byzantine letters, is across the fibres. On the 
recto is a fragmentary account, headed, like the recto, with ττ/.

A letter from one advocate (σχολαστικό?: cf. 902. i, note, and Gelzer, Byz. 
Verwalt. p. 34) to another expostulating about the treatment of some cultivators 
in the writer's employ, and threatening reprisals. The cause of the trouble was 
apparently a dispute about some camels, perhaps a question of ownership like 
that involved in 1164.

' Your fraternal, illustrious learnedness ought to have helped my insignificance and not

property, but to prevent others who wish to do so. I have said this because my cultivators 
at Amoules have been put to such straits, and because of some camels worth a score of 
denarii. If we go to litigation and your fraternal wisdom says that the guard did this, you 
control the guard and you ought to help me rather than to proceed against me and then 
leave the whole matter to my insignificance. God knows, I too could have injured an 
estate near Murmux belonging to the mistress of that guard, as I did on another occasion 
in the time of the honourable comes Paul, when I was injured once before by the inhabitants 
of Teruthis. Let me tell you then what you should do ; be persuaded, whether they made 
an error or whether they did not, to have them released, so that I may not come to that
