To Aurelius Maximus also called Hermaiscus, priest, archidicastes, and superintendent of the chrematistae and the other courts, from Marcus Aurelius Herodes also called Lurius, of Antinoe, and from Marcus Aurelius Sarapammon, however else he is styled. Whereas Aurelius Sarapammon and Lurius as successors to an inheritance have come into possession of certain corn lands comprising in the area of the village of Kerkeosiris in the division of Polemon in the Arsinoite nome 7 arurae in two plots, in the area of the village of Tebtunis in the same division in the place called Karion 7 arurae likewise, in the area of the village of Kerkesis 1 arura, making a total of 15 arurae, which have hitherto been undivided, and as they have now decided to divide these on the understanding that each of them acknowledges his own portion, Aurelius Lurius and Aurelius Sarapammon now agree that they have divided the aforesaid arurae and that of the 7 arurae in the area of the village of Kerkeosiris each of them has received 31/2 arurae, of the 7 arurae in the area of the village of Tebtunis each of them has received 31/2 arurae, and of the arura in the area of the village of Kerkesis each of them has received one half, so that each of them may henceforth possess and own the portion of 71/2 arurae which has fallen to him and may each administer and dispose of them in whatever way he chooses; and that Aurelius Sarapammon shall have entire control of his property in the area of the village of Theogonis consisting of 3 arurae out of 6, because Lurius has sold his half share, and that they have left under joint ownership the 2 arurae belonging to them in the area of the village of Tebtunis in the place called Pagagorus until they come to some decision concerning them, while reserving their rights concerning any other property which they may find to form part of the estate. And Aurelius Lurius shall not proceed against Aurelius Sarapammon on account of the building in the metropolis, because he has sold his own half share. And the rest of it. The 5th year of the Philippi, Mecheir 9.
