"Humanitas", S. Riccobono jr., "Il circolo giuridico", 1950 : [recenzja]
In this article the author raises objection to S e i d 1 ' s
interpretation of P. Ibscher in J.J.P. I V , (1950), 159 — 1 6 4 . He is also
against M a n t e u f f e l ' s reading upon which S e i d 1 rests his
J. F. G i l l i a m , The Ostracon from Möns Claudianus (Chronique
d'Egypte, nr. 55 (1953), 144 — 146).
G i l l i a m gives a new interpretation of the ostracon from
Möns Claudianus published by C l a i r e P r é a u x in Chronique
d'Egypte, nr 53, (1951), p. 354 — 363 (cf. Journal of Jur. Pap. YI,
311). The author thinks that Ptolemais mentioned in the ostracon
was a civilian who worked in the military quarters at Möns
Claudianus and received cibaria and other allowances at monthly
intervals. The cibariator, one may suppose, issued rations and
advances in lieu thereof and accepted receipts. But Caesarianus was
either Ptolemais' employer, or his deputy and was fully authorized
to advance pay to his workmen. The promise to repay Gaion is
perfectly intelligible in the more personal and variable
employerworker relationship, but it would be out of place in army records
and book keeping.
S. R i c c o b o n o jr., Humanitas (estr. da "II circolo giuridico",
In this study the author discusses the meaning of humanitas and
makes suggestion that the imperial chancellary and the cognitio
of the provincial functionaries show clearly the reception of the
word humanus and humanitas. In this matter the author refers to a
mention made by S e i d 1 concerning Pap. Oxy. X V I I I 2177.
W i l h e l m E n s s l i n , Zu Papyrus Oxyrynclms I Recto
(Aegyptus X X X I I , I, 163).
Pap. Oxy. I Recto, as it is known, is an official document which
contains an account of the delivery of fodder to different
détachements of the army. A selection of the receipts of the
underoffieers in charge of this duty is added in form of copies. The author
gives in this article a very interesting analysis of these receipts.
