P.Oxy. 8 1157

26.1 x 8.7


Letter of Pathermouthis

(Late 3rd century)

The subjects of this letter are a registration, evidently for the census, and a payment of the poll-tax, both of which the writer wished his sister to undertake for him. He was uncertain whether she would be allowed to register him in his absence, and he asks her, in case this should not be possible, to let him know, in order that he might come and do it for himself.
