A Hermopolite Sale on Delivery in Vienna and London
Schlagworte:Hermopolites, sale contract, papyri, Egypt, 6th century
CPR IX 31 preserves the top part of a Hermopolite sale of barley and vegetable seed in advance of delivery. Its lower portion is a newly discovered piece, housed in the British Library. Only a few lines have been lost between the two fragments, as we may tell from their combined height, c. 30.3 cm. There are some novelties, including a tantalizing reference to an earlier transaction (16–17 and n.) and a price for the products if they are not delivered in time (20–21).
