agent of another brother, Sarapammon, in a transportation receipt (1,
527). Sarapammon is named also in a chaff receipt (1, 190) and in
other transportation receipts (II, 919, 920, 925).
58. See n. 39.
59. The dots replace a lost numeral.
60. See n. 59. A collector's signature may be lost at the end of the
text. A majority of the chaff receipts bear such signatures, but there
is no trace of one in O. Mich., 1, 211 ; 11, 783. On the problem
connected with the omission of collectors' signatures from tax receipts
see my remarks in TAPA, LXXI, 1940, P. 626, nn. 20, 21 ; CF, XXXIX,
1944, P. 37, n. go.
61. According to P. Cair. Boak, 23= &Eactue;tudes de papyrologie, V,
1939, pp. 95-101, chaff was collected in 31 1 A.D. at the rate of 25
pounds per aroura. Cf. TAPA, LXXII, 1941, P. 449, n. 43
62. This is the name of the collector. In the same indiction he issued
also O. Mich., 11, 782, and in the fifth indiction, I, 199,
which resembles Inv. 9854 in the introduction of a second instalment
with the words . In 199, 7 should be substituted for the
editor's . The three texts, including the signatures, are in
three different hands; they were authorized by Uranius, but were
written and signed in his name by his assistants. This is sufficient
to show that signatures cannot always be taken at face
value. Cf. Majer-Leonhard, , Frankfurt, 1913, P. 3, on P. Oxy.,
I, 71 .
63. This person is one of six in O. Mich., I, 269, who are credited
with work on the embankments.
64. A variant spelling of .
65. This collector is not otherwise known.
