Petition to a Prefect of Egypt

(299 A.D.)

A petition submitted by Isidorus, son of Ptolemeaus, to Aelius Publius, prefect of Egypt in 299 A.D. It is either a variant draft of the petition preserved in Isid.66, or a second petition to the prefect concerning the same affair - a case of arson, resulting in the loss of grain on a threshing floor.
