- SURVEY OF THE PAPYRI CHIEFLY FROM 1952 TILL 1953. P A P Y R I P E R I O D F. H i η t z e, Fragment eines demotischen Ehevertrages (P. dem. Beri. 15.592), p. 100 — 110 (Archiv Orientalni, vol. nr 3—4,= Diatribae Lexa, 1952). Upon the evidence furnished by the date - formula this marriage contract can be surely placed in the times of Ptolemaios VI. The title of one of the parties is worth of notice: Pates = Demotic: f j s c t , the letter-carrier. The official delivery of private correspondence in the New Kingdom was as hardly possible as in the Ptolemaic period. The Demotic letter-carrier corresponds to the βυβλιαφόρος "document-carrier" of the Greek deeds. The β.υβλιαφόροι, are concerned with the delivery on foot the less official mail within the boundaries of a district unlike the royal courier-mail introduced probably by the Persians (cf. P r e i s i g k e , Die ptolemäische Staatspost, Klio 7 [1907] 241 —277, especially 2 7 2 — 2 7 7 ; W i l с к e η, Grundzüge, 372 ff; further the commentary to the Pap. Hal. 7; cf. my Law II, 88 ff); they were organized into districtgroups e. g. in Oxyrynchites were appointed 44 βυβλιαφόροι. As regards the duty and the organization of the "document-carriers" we have wery little information; in our case this work is performed by an Egyptian. As to the contract itself there is little to comment because very few passages that remained of its contents furnish no new information in comparison to the known marriagecontracts. In our papyrus are missing: the list of dowry, the paragraphs concerning its security and further the signature of the notary as well as the list of witnesses.
