Aphroditopolis (Fayum region, Egypt — Pleiades map), 134 BCE (January 6)

bibliography            

Papyrus (Cologne, Papyrussammlung, P. 7696). This Aphroditopolis was in the Arsinoites district (nome). This petition, likely to Apollonios the governor of the district, is extremely fragmentary. There is mention of a "society" (thiasos) in line 18 and so is included on this site.

Too fragmentary to translate.
