Account of barley presented by Leptines


An account of barley presented by Leptines. The barley was required for the fattening of hiereia in the months of Epeiph and Mesore, probably therefore in preparation for the Arsinoe festival. The daily consumption amount to 15 and sometimes 16 1/2 artabs, so the number of animals must have been considerable.
