"Two receipts for poll-taxes of the twelfth(?) year in the amphodon Hieras Pules paid apparently by the same person through Diodorus, the first payment being 8 drachmae with [4] obols for prosdiagraphomena, the second for 12 drachmae with 6 obols for prosdiagraphomena. The second receipt is dated in the 13th(?) year of Hadrian (AD 128-9); the date of the first is lost, but was probably the same. Incomplete." (Grenfell, Hunt, and Hogarth)

  • Text is on one side only, 10 lines with the fibers. Text is in two columns, each a separate receipt that can most likely be dated within the same year. Second column most likely in a separate hand, as writing appears more compact and darker than first hand. Bottom margin is clearly visible, other margins are torn.
