In 1.10 is mentioned a signet-ring. No. 5 and No. 8 are unintelligible. A b d u l l a t i f A h m e d A l y , Some Michigan Papyri from Karanis (Ibrahim University Studies in Papyrology, No. 1. Reprint from the Annals of the Faculty of Arts, Ibrahim Pasha University, vol. II, 1952). The documents presented in these Annals are part of a group of the papyri which in 1950 were sent to the editor for publication by Mr H. C. Υ o u t i e, Professor of papyrology at the University of Michigan. They belong to that portion of the Michigan papyri which was discovered on the site of the ancient Karanis, in the course of the excavations conducted by the University of Michigan Near East Research Expedition to Egypt, between the years 1924 and 1934. The "first series" of the papyri thus obtained was published in 1944 as Part I of Michigan Papyri vol. VI and the "second series" was published in 1951 as Part I of Michigan Papyri vol. VIII. The present edition contains 10 documents. No. 1 (III/IV A.D.) is a chirograph in which Aurelius Paulus agrees to restore certain houses in Karanis belonging to Aurelius Melas which he lioldsi and occupies, whenever the latter comes to the village. Aurelius Paulus holds evidently the houses precario modo. Precarious relations are in the papyri rather unusual and few, cf. e. g. Pap. Heid. Inv. I l l (cf. my Law I, 1963). No. 2—5 are allotments of uncultivated land (II cent. A. D.). Each text begins with a numbered cleruchy — the first cleruchy in 2—4, the ninth in 5, and further specifies the areas of public, crown, usiac or revenue land within the cleruchy. The parcels of land are allotted to landowners under the system of compulsory lease. No. 2 has a comprehensive statement fixing responsibility for all land that may become άβροχος in the first cleruchy; in the last lines the name is given of the person upon whom the burden was imposed. No. 6 (218 A.D.) is a receipt for rental with the usual form καί ουδέν ένκαλώ (cf. my Law I, 318). No. 7 (218 A. D.) is a receipt issued by the sitologi of Philopator for payment of dues in kind on the land at JOURNAL OF PAPYROLOGY Bacćhias, including epibole or land assigned to cultivators on the prevalent system of compulsory lease. No. 8 (II/III cent. A. D.) is an account of expenses for a festival. It contains a short list of articles purchased from poultry-dealers and bee-keepers on the occasion of Semasia, a festival celebrated annually when the inundation had reached satisfactory height. No. 9 (II cent. A. D.) is a list of villages which were all in the Herakleides division of the Arsinoite nome. No. 10 (169/70 A. D.) is a chirograph in which Valerius also called Heron, a resident of Karanis, acknowledges that Hermias, a citizen of Alexandria, has deposited with him the sum of 140 drachmas, which he will return on demand (cf. on deposita my Law I, 264/5).

S e i d 1, Der Eid im röm. äg. Provinzialrecht p. 90 — 91). No. 208 (75 A.D.) is a deed of sale in the form όμολογοϋμεν πεπρακέναι— και άπέχομεν τάς της τιμής αργυρίου δραχμάς κτλ. No. 209 (152 A.D.) is a loan of money given by the bank and drawn to the account of Didyme who is called also Diogenis an άστή (cf. Journal of Jur. Pap. V, 245 ff) acting by her φροντιστής (cf. my Law I, 119 ff) to two Persians τ. έπιγ. — έξ άλληληγγύης άνευ πάσης ύπερθέσεως και [εύρησιλογίας]. No. 210 (90—96 Α.

(cf. on labour-contracts my Law I, 281); the editors assume that it concerns a contract which belongs to the type of the so called παραμοναί (cf. my Law I, 218 ff.). No. 211 (306 A.D.) contains a partial receipt; No. 212 (IVth century A.D.) concerns a presentation to a liturgy.
