Zwei spätdemotische Zahlungsquittungen aus der Zeit des Domitian.

Publication of two late demotic "receipts of payment" (ỉw-Urkunden) from the Erzherzog Rainer Collection in Vienna. The documents were issued by the priests of the god Soknopaios and the goddess Isis-Nepherses at Soknopaiou Nesos.

The first papyrus (P. Vindob. D 6833) from regnal year 8 of Caesar Domitian (?) (= 88 / 89 A. C. E.) contains a tax (nḥt) on four ships (ḏy.w 4.t). The receipt also acknowledges other payments that were payed in installments in "money (and) copper" (ḥḏ ḥmt), and in kind with products like "cattle" (ỉḥ) or "jugs" (šš.w). The taxpayer is "the scribe of the priests" (pȝ sẖ nȝ wʿb.w), in all probability an administrator for another person, the owner of the four ships, whose name is mentioned in the text.

The other receipt (P. Vindob. D 6837) dating from regnal year 9-10 of Caesar Domitian (= 89-90 A. C. E.) and classified under the so-called late demotic papyrus documents, refers to a new kind of tax which is not mentioned directly. However, it concerns the tax for using the "pasturage" (?) (tȝy?) in Pȝy-šy, as well as the "proceeds" (ẖny.t) of the šfṱ. The two localities were obviously combined with Soknopaiu Nesos in both administration and taxation. The payments were payed in at least eight installments.
