Inv. 501 (6—5 B.C.) in a loan, the primary interest of which lies in
the person of the lender Gaius Julius Carus, the earliest veteran to
appear in Egypt; the second, P. Yale Inv. 555 (middle II cent.
A.D.) is a Greek letter with a Latin subscription. In this letter the
exegetes is concerned in the ownership of "certain crops",
presumably newly harvested grain. Much interest is attached to the
part of the Boman centurion Domitius Iulianus. It is clear that
the centurion was engaged in making a διάκρισις and he demands
the evidence as to the ownership of the καρποί. The last lines allude
to λεία, that means to a delict of which the agents of the exegetes
accuse the correspondent (cf. my Law2 454 ff.).
