Lease of Land

(303/304 A.D.)

Both the top and the bottom of this papyrus are torn away, and with them has gone every chance of recovering the names of the lessor and the lessee. The object of the lease is five arouras of private land at Kerkesoucha and two arouras at Ptolemais Nea. These are given in lease for three years, and the lessee is exempt from payment of rent provided he pay all the taxes and perform all the agricultural operations required for effective cultivation of the land.
