Sales in early Roman Tebtunis: the Case of the grapheion Archive of Kronion
By using the evidence of the local record-office archive, this paper examines the role and importance of formally contracted sales and cessions in the economy and society of first-century Tebtunis, in the Fayum, Egypt. The aim is to determine to what extent and how reliably fluctuations in sales and cessions trends reflected changing market conditions and hence had an impact on the local village community.
