Petition of village-representatives

(A.D. 298)

A well preserved petition to Aemilius Rusticianus, an otherwise unknown deputy-praefect, from two comarchs on behalf of the village of Pa´mis. Their complaint was concerned with the repair of an embankment, and illustrates the difficulties experienced in carrying out the regulations which had been laid down a few years previously by the dioecetes in P.Oxy. XII 1409.
