Also called archive of Anonym; The archive of an / the anonym

Description: The Anonymous family archive mainly contains sales and cessions of tombs (title deeds). Pestman divides the archive into three stages. The first stage involves four documents and three people: Thabis, her daughter Timounis and her grandson Amenothes, to whom tombs and the related archival papers are passed. To the second stage may be reckoned two papyri when Thabis’ grandson Amenothes ceded his tombs to Panas, son of Espmetis. The last stage affects only one document, when Panas ceded in his turn his tombs and related papers to an anonymous person, hence the name of the archive, as suggested by Pestman.

Publication: P. BM Andrews

Studies: Pestman, A family archive which changes history, in P. L. Bat. 27, 1995, p. 91-100; O. Chicago Muhs, 2005, p. 131
