An early Ptolemaic bank register from the Arsinoite nome revised

Abstract : New readings and a rearrangement of the fragments have led to this reedition of an Arsinoite bank register, first published two years ago (APF 55/2 [2009] 230-250). The register covers one month in year 12 (of Ptolemy III). A wide variety of taxes is recorded, paid by both civilian and military sectors at different local banks; details are here collected in a central register most probably from the nome capital. The surviving text records the final 5-6% of inpayments for the current year, followed by arrears going back year-by-year. Different agios are charged on different taxes. The large sums on the back are probably annual payments relating to the whole nome.
