Rental agreement (land)

(AD 530)

Aurelius Ioannes rents a vineyard belonging to [...], daughter of Ioannes the comes, for a period of ten years, in return for 126 aggeia of wine per aroura of land. Each aggeion is valued at seven xestes, and the farmer is obliged to provide the clay jars himself. He rents, at the same time, a palm grove, lands whose nature is not specified (ktemata: most likely, cereal fields) and a piece of uncultivated land, which he undertakes to transform into a vineyard. All this on the same conditions as an individual named Ioannes, the previous tenant of the same properties. Belongs to the archive of Dioscoros.
