Eine Synchoresis aus der Zeit des Commodus. Papyrus Rainer
G. 25.867 (Studi in onore di Y. Arangio-Ruiz III, 429).
The papyrus from the year 189 A. D. published by L e w a 1 d
contains a synchoresis which concerns the sale of a female slave
(cf. on sale-contracts of slaves my Law I, 250).
The buyer Aphrodisios is represented by 'Απόλλων ίδης (on
agency see my Law I, 233). The seller is Titus Silvius
Symmachus, a Roman citizen beside whom appears Julius Zenon as
βεβαιωτής and proxy. The seller is responsible for eviction (cf. my Law
I, 234). Our document is a katagraphe received by the proxy of
the buyer. The female slave is denoted as άπο καταπλόου. According
to the opinion of A r a n g i o - R u i z this term means that the
female slave was brought to Egypt. The sale is a άπλω χρήμα-«
sale. With reference to the words άπλω χρήματι it is said of the
sold female slave that she is έκτος ιεράς νόσου και επαφής. In
1.12,13 is our Nike denoted as άνακριθεΐσα (on άνάκρισις cf. the
commentary, p. 436). The price will be paid to the seller not by
the buyer but by his proxy but on the buyer's account (άπο λόγου

(cf. my Laiv I, 124); on p. 521 — a papyrus from the year 131
A. D. edited by A. C i n o t t i which contains the petition of
Sabinus to the strategos. The matter of the petition is the
dispute of Sabinus with the guardians (φροντισταί) of two minors (cf.
on φροντισταί my Law I, 119) which concerns probably taxes
which the former (i. e. Sabinus) had failed to collect. Sabinus
requests the strategos to summon both φροντισταί to appear before
the forum of the prefect. Upon the papyrus there is a note of the
ύπηρέτης, that the delivery of the διαστολικόν to the cited persons
was performed in the presence of the plaintiff (cf. my Law I, 382 ff).

Friedrich Schiller-Universität Jena, Jahrgang 1952/3, Heft I).
The papyrus from the Jena collection (Pap. Jen. 59) published
by Z u c k e r is a petition of a man who in Tebtunis was
compelled to cultivate a certain piece of land. The petition was
written in the years between 133 and 138/9 resp. 137/8 and quite
probably it was directed to the strategos of Heptanomia. The
petitioner demands a revocatory instruction for the strategos of the
Polemon - district in order that the petitioner could live
unmolested in Antinoopolis where apparently his permanent
residence was. To support his petition he encloses a copy of the writing
of the epistrategos of Thebais, Umbricius Capitolinus which was
seemingly directed to the βασιλικός γραμματεύς and to the assistant
of the strategos of the Polemon-district in the Arsinoite in the
year 133. In this writing which concerns a petition delivered to
him, the epistrategos speaks of the Άντινοεΐς and liturgies and of
the decisions which were passed in similiar cases (cf. on the
privileges of the Antinoites my article in Sav. Z. LXX 134 ff).
