Abstract :
An edition of an incomplete account in the Beinecke Library listing large amounts of wheat collected or due from villages of the Oxyrhynchite nome. Comparison with the number of Oxyrhynchite villages listed in P.Oxy. 10.1285 and the total grain tax contribution of the nome in SB 14.12208 suggests that the amounts correspond to the annual tax revenues in wheat from these villages, evidence for which is otherwise scarce. The back of the papyrus contains a money account mentioning an ἐμβολάρχης. Another fragmentary account of Oxyrhynchite villages in the Beinecke Library is edited as an appendix.
