Abstract :
CPR 18.11 (September/October 232 BCE, Theogenis) is an entry in a contracts register that combines a lease for a portion of a garden with a labor for wages agreement. Neither the treatment offered in CPR 18 nor the one in the recent re-edition of the text in CPJ 4 satisfactorily addresses the text’s unusual features. Fresh analysis suggests that CPR 18.11 was designed to restore a προσφορά-like arrangement for shared use of the garden entailed in a cancelled marriage agreement (CPR 18.9); that the features of the contract abstract suggest the garden portion had been cultivated as a new vineyard shortly before the marriage ended; and that the land-sharing agreement was extended beyond the end of the marriage in recognition of the extended time necessary for new vineyards to produce remunerative crops.
