Papyri : Election to Municipal Offices


<p style='text-align: justify;'>Partially mutilated document concerning election to Municipal Offices. The chronological sequence of the enclosures of the papyrus is as follows :— (a) The minutes of a session before the strategus of the Hermopolite nome. (b) an official letter addressed to the strategus by the municipal authorities (ol άρχοντες), valuable in giving a brief summary of the whole affair, dated April 8th, 192. (c) a further letter, perhaps from the strategus to the άρχοντες, in which extracts from some minutes are quoted: July 23rd of the same year. Due to mutilation of the papyrus, the precise purpose of the main document is now impossible to guess.</p>
