	Petition from Panopolis (modern name: Akhmim), Egypt,
	written on papyrus. Aurelius Horion, son of Horion,
	writes to Flavius Nestorios, praefectus Aegypti or
	prefect of Egypt, through his uncle on his father's
	side, Ammon, the well-known scholastikos, or lawyer.
	Horion claims his right to succeed his father in
	the position of prophet (a priest) of the Panopolite
	Nome against the scheming of the high priest. Makes
	reference to an imperial rescript of Diocletian in
