There has not been much research on the archives of the governors in Late Antiquity. Apparently these archives are thought of as a typical element of a „bureaucratic“ state such as the Later Roman Empire, and it is assumed that they are well documented. But it is quite the opposite: there are almost no general references to archives of the governors. As in the case of the archives of the governors of the High Empire – whose existence has been doubted -, the existence of such archives in Late Antiquity can be proven only in an indirect way. This is achieved by collecting evidence for the principal elements of such archives and their preservation and for the members of staff who cared for them. This article puts together the evidence for diaries of daily activities of the governors, the collection of letters written by them and to them, the petitions submitted to them and the documents of their financial administration, with the aim to prove the existence of such archives.
