Abstract :
This article results from a paper presented during the Eleventh Congress of Demotic Studies held in Oxford (September 2011). It deals with one ostracon from the collections of the Ashmolean Museum, dating to the early Roman period. This ostracon contains a list of amounts of wheat received by two women and four men from the granary of the god Jeme, on Mesore 9 and 14 of an unknown year. The document sheds light on the role played by priestesses in the Egyptian temples and priestly economic affairs in early Roman times.
