B.Mandilaras, P.Sta. Xyla . This volume contains part of the Byzantine papyri in the collection of the Greek papyrological Society, most of which have been acquired with the support of Mrs. Stamatia Xyla. Most of the papyri in this volume date to the sixth century AD and come from the Hermopolite Nome. They seem to be mainly related to the monastery of Apa Apollo at Titkois.
|Highlights:||A long Ptolemaic tax list, divided over the collections of Athens and Trier, is now published in P.Count 50|
The Papyrological Society originally owns some 350 papyri of different origin; cf. B.Mandilaras, Proceedings XVIth Congress of Papyrology (1981), pp.691-698; Idem, Proceedings of the XIXth Intern. Congress of Papyrology, Cairo 1989, I, pp.583-602; Idem, Atti del XXII Congresso di Papirologia, Firenze 1998, (Firenze 2001), pp.855-859. In the 1980's 200 more papyri were acquired, most of them mummy cartonnage, but ten are Roman and Byzantine pieces from Oxyrhynchus; cf. B. Mandilaras, Proceedings of the XIXth International Congress of Papyrology Cairo, 1992, pp.583-595. On the papyri from the collection Oikonomides, see B.Mandilaras, Atti del XXII Congresso di Papirologia, Firenze 1998, (Firenze 2001), pp.855-859.
The collections consists not only of Greek texts, but there is also Coptic and Arabic material, cf. B.Mandilaras, Atti del XXII Congresso di Papirologia, Firenze 1998, (Firenze 2001), pp.855-859. The P.Sta Xyla, both Greek and Coptic, are connected with the monastery of Apa Apollos in Titkois in the Hermopolite nome.
