P.Cair.Masp. 2 67154 verso

75.8 x 30.6

JE40898; SR2363

Deed of settlement

(AD 566-73)

On the verso, a deed of settlement from a father to his daughter(?), leaving her his fortune in recompense for her devotion during the illness and old age of the testator, and annuling in this intent a previous settlement. This verso was without doubt written a long time after the recto: between 566 and 570, like the other papyri from Antinoe. A good example of the revocation of a mortis causa donatio. Belongs to the archive of Dioscoros.
