Item description for Menches, Komogrammateus of Kerkeosiris: The Doings and Dealings of a Village Scribe in the Late Ptolemaic Period (120-110 B.C.) (Papyrologica Lugduno-Batava) by A. M. F. W. Verhoogt...
This is a study of Menches, a village scribe of Kerkeosiris between 120 and 110 B.C., on the basis of the complete body of documents from his archive. The author presents the only source of material: the papyri found inside crocodile mummies at the Egyptian village of Tebtunis in 1899/1900. After exploring the precise nature of these payrus documents, the book goes on to explore what we can learn from them about Menches' (re)appointments to the post of village scribe; his position in the Ptolemaic bureaucracy; his contacts - written and otherwise - with peers and superiors; his day-to-day tasks, mainly concerned with fiscal administration; and, in the final chapter, his dealings with a "strike" of colleague village scribes and a "strike" of farmers at his village.
