Account from Timanthes


Timanthes gives an account of the money spent in wages to workmen who have been engaged to collect the dry sticks from the fields, burn out the old stumps and cut down the brushwood. These operations lasted from the 25th of Thoth to the 9th of Phaophi, after which the workmen were turned on to the irrigation of the land thus cleared. The daily wage was 3/4 of an obol per head.
