The paper offers a new edition of P. Lond. inv. 2110 recto (= SB XX 14599), fragmentary account, dating from the first half of the 3rd century AD, of the receipt of a professional scriptorium. It was purchased along with other papyri, among which nearly all whose provenance could be identified were from Oxyrhynchus. Edited by H.I. Bell (1921) and K. Ohly (1928), the account provides two different scales of pay of profes- sional scribes: the scribe’s payment was in fact based on the quality of the writing. At the end of the same account there’s a detailed estimate for the repair of a roof and for the purchase of medicines.

Abstract

The paper offers a new edition of P. Lond. inv. 2110 recto (= SB XX 14599), fragmentary account, dating from the first half of the 3rd century AD, of the receipt of a professional scriptorium. It was purchased along with other papyri, among which nearly all whose provenance could be identified were from Oxyrhynchus. Edited by H.I. Bell (1921) and K. Ohly (1928), the account provides two different scales of pay of profes- sional scribes: the scribe’s payment was in fact based on the quality of the writing. At the end of the same account there’s a detailed estimate for the repair of a roof and for the purchase of medicines.
