Extracted from mummy cartonnage with P.Duk.inv. 675-677. P.Duk.inv. 674 was formerly P.Duk.inv. MF79 1. Papyrus petition from the Arsinoites (modern name: Fayyum), Egypt. Directed to Dionysios, the representative of the oikonomos (a financial official), in charge of the collection of taxes on vineyards in the Ibion area. Agathokles, Nearchos and someone else accuse three tax collectors, Ptolemaios, Apollonios, and someone else, of cheating. Since the market price of wine is low, the tax collectors are apparently demanding too much in cash for the tax on vineyards. Dated to Choiach 17, year 14 (January 24, 191 B.C.). In Greek.
