Report to the strategos

(2nd century B.C.)

Beginning of a report to the strategos from an ibis-feeder of the Sarapeion of Oxyrhynchus. The papyrus breaks before the subject of the report can be ascertained, but the part that remains is not without interest. The papyrus was folded four times from right to left, and is badly shredded at the folds.
