P.Oxy. 8 1165

16.9 x 29.8


Letter of Victor

(6th century)

A letter from one advocate to another expostulating about the treatment of some cultivators in the writer's employ, and threatening reprisals. The cause of the trouble was apparently a dispute about some camels, perhaps a question of ownership. Only the verso is illustrated here.
