Abstract :
New readings reveal the character of PUG 4.155 as a Ptolemaic land survey perhaps originating from the Herakleopolite nome that very much resembles land surveys published in BGU 14, especially 2441. The apomoira tax on orchards and vineyards, the first category of land registered here, is here dedicated to avenging goddesses otherwise named the Νεμέϲειϲ. They appear here for the first time as Νετβεῦτεϲ, which is a Greek transliteration of Egyptian n3.db3.w 'those of revenge'.
