Sale of a girl slave

(April-May 259 B.C.)

A duplicate deed of sale, attested by six witnesses, of a little girl called Sphragis, perhaps a Babylonian. The seller was Nikanor, the buyer Zenon, and the price paid was fifty drachmae. The sale took place in the land of Ammon, in a place called Birta. Several of the persons mentioned in the text are said to be cleruchs belonging to the troops of Toubias, an Ammonite chief of the great Toubiad family.
