Re-editing SPP III Texts: Challenges, Problems, Results – Five Case Studies


The present paper deals with the new edition of the documents that make up the last part of the third volume of the series Studien zur Palaeographie und Papyruskunden, also known as SPP texts (SPP III nos 573-701). It focuses on characteristic instances of re-transcribing in five receipts for the payment in money, preserved on parchment and dated to the early Arab period of Egypt that are included in this corpus. The proposed readings provide us with information on the text type, the prosopography, the dating and provenance of these texts.
