Abstract :
Three new papyri from the Austrian National Library provide insight into the dealings of a local subordinate of Athenodoros, the Ptolemaic dioiketes who held office from at least 197 to 190 BCE. The texts are all addressed to a certain Δημήτριος ὁ παρὰ Ἀθηνoδώρου τοῦ διοικητοῦ, who is without a doubt also the addressee of CPR 28.11. Demetrios appears to have been responsible for various fiscal matters in the Herakleopolite nome: solving problems in regard to some tax issue, protecting naukleroi against supposedly unjustified freight charges, protecting a worker against fiscal demands on the part of a security officer, and, possibly, organizing a grain transport.
