P.Oxy. 55 3805

This is on the back of an annual account of the year 566 concerning the Apion estate, see E02352, and seems to have formed part of it, by adding further records at a later stage and in a more informal style. It records various financial transactions, among which one finds a payment made by monks of a monastery of Phoibammon, line 67:

δ(ιὰ) τῶν μοναζ(όντων) τοῦ ἁγί(ου) Φοιβάμμωνος ἐν Θμοινακώμεως ὑ(πὲρ) τῆς Νήσου Ταπετρωνίου ἰδ(ιωτικῷ) νο(μισμάτια(?)) ιδ

'Through the monks of St Phoebammon in Thmoenacomis, for (land in) Nesu Tapetroniu: By private standard, solidi 14.'
