Summary of Content Thelporine sells a room and a courtyard for two solidi of the old currency to a soldier whose name is lost. Even though none of the parties is known elsewhere, this conveyance is very closely connected with P. Munch. 16 in time, as the identity of the drafter and the repetition of his formulary indicate. It is probably the same courtyard in both documents. (J.J.Farber D20)
Location of Composition Aswan / Syene Upper Egypt, 1st nome Egypt (Certainty: high)
