Our aforesaid father Heracleides son of Heracleides son of Heracleides, whose mother was Tasoucharion his father's sister, registered himself in the 8th year of the deified Vespasianus together with his parents in the quarter of the Cilicians ; in the 9th year of Domitianus and in the 7th of Trajanus he likewise registered himself with his parents in the quarter of the Bithynians and Neighbourhood, at the same time registering his wife Lycarous, who was our mother, and myself, Horion ; in the house-to-house census of the 2nd year of Hadrianus Caesar the lord both our parents registered themselves in the said quarter, at the same time registering the two of us ; and in the house-to-house census of the 16th year of Hadrianus Caesar the lord I registered myself together with our mother and my brother Heracleides, now presented for examination, because our father had died after the census of the 2nd year. Lycarous, again, daughter of Heracleides slave of Ischyrion son of Papus, her mother being Didyma daughter of Hermas, was registered in the 8th year of Vespasianus together with her mother and brothers in the quarter of the Temple of Seknebtunis ; she herself died after the house-to-house census of the 16th year of Hadrianus Caesar the lord ; and her parents were registered as living together in the 9th year of Domitianus in the quarter of the Cilicians. I also lay before you the record of my own examination and a page of the property census . . , part of a house inherited from my father . .
