Protagonist: Heroninos was an estate-manager (phrontistes) in Theadelpheia from September 249 to summer 268. The owner of the estate was Aurelius Appianus.
Description: Mainly business correspondence and accounts, dated between AD 249 and 268. Heroninos was an estate-manager (phrontistes) in Theadelpheia from September 249 to summer 268. The owner of the estate was Aurelius Appianus (attested from 231 to about 259), who was succeeded by his daughter Diodora ca. 260. By 290 the estate had returned to the crown. Diodora was married to Antonius Philoxenos, who also plays a role in the archive. The estates of Appianus in the Arsinoites nomos stood under the direction of Alypios, who as the direct superior of Heroninus, is one of the main figures in the archive. The neighbouring phrontis of Euhemeria was directed by Eirenaios, a colleague of Heroninus, from 247 to 259.
