DECLARATION OF A PURCHASE OF PROPERTY

Original text: PHamb 16
Date: A.D. 209.

{Docketed} Signed by me, . . . The 18th year of the Emperors and Caesars Lucius Septimius Severus Pius Pertinax and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Pius, Augusti, and Publius Septimius Geta Caesar Augustus, Phaophi 10. (Text of declaration) To Didas, ex-exegetes, and Mystes, ex-cosmetes, senators, keepers of archives of the Arsinoite nome, from Antonia Thermoutharion, acting without a guardian by right of children in accordance with the Roman custom. In virtue of a public deed executed on the present day through the record-office here I have bought in the village of Philadelphia the four-fifth part, which was owned in common and undivided, of the sixth part of a house and fixtures for the price of a hundred drachmas from Tituleius also called Isidorus and Tituleius, both of them citizens of Antinoe of the Sabinian tribe and the Harmoniean deme, and Cyrilla and Titania, who are all four children of Longinus also called Sarapion son of Isidorus and have not registered their ownership, each of the women acting with her husband as guardian, Cyrilla with Socrates son of Theon son of Ptolemaeus of the Arabs' quarter, and Titania with Ammonius son of Claudianus also called Ptolemaeus, ex-chief priest of the city of Arsinoe. Wherefore I present this application in order that the annotation may be made in conformity with the copy of the deed which I have deposited. For when I make the declaration of the property, I will show that it belongs to me and is free from any lien ; but if another person should be proved to have a right to it or a hold upon it recorded through the archives-office, the present notification shall not stand in the way of his claim. {Subscribed} I, Didas, ex-exegetes, senator, have placed this on record. I, Mystes, ex-cosmetes, senator, have placed this on record. The 18th year of Lucius Septimius Severus Pius Pertinax and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Pius, Augusti, and Publius Septimius Geta Caesar Augustus, Phaophi 10.
