Abstract :
This article explores the meaning of the noun entype in P.Giss.Apoll. 20, a private request letter that is part of the Apollonios archive. The analysis offered is based on a lexicographical and etymological analysis of the word, supplemented by papyrological and literary sources. The linguistic and textual findings are confronted with archaeological finds, i.e. preserved textiles.
