Receipts for Various Taxes

(316 and 318 A.D.)

Four receipts (two columns, with two receipts in each); two issued to Heras, son of Ptolemaeus and brother of Isidorus, and his wife TaŽsis, daughter of Kopres; one issued to TaŽsis alone, and one in the name of Kyrillous, sister of TaŽsis. The first three receipts acknowledge payment of charges assessed on land at Kerkesoucha and Ptolemais, villages which had close economic ties with Karanis.
