Abstract :
This article, inspired by the recent acquisition of a lot of two papyri by UC Berkeley’s Center for the Tebtunis Papyri, contains notes on their provenance as well as an edition of one of the papyri: a letter by a certain Phoibammon to his father Didymos. In carrying out provenance research for the papyrus, a rare sales catalogue has been uncovered that adds some previously unknown papyri to the list of those once owned by Erik von Scherling and transcribed by E.P. Wegener. The first section of this paper summarizes the provenance and history of the papyri. The second part of the article provides an edition of P.Berk. inv. 148, one of the papyri in the lot recently purchased by UC Berkeley. An appendix lists descriptions of the 'new' von Scherling papyri.
