Protagonist: Flavius Abinnaeus is commander of the cavalry (praefectus alae) in the Arsinoites nomos, stationed in a fortress in Dionysias, a village in the north-west of the nomos.

Description: Archive of private and official documents (petitions, letters, accounts and lists). Of the 42 letters, 37 are addressed to Abinnaeus and one is written by him. Abinnaeus has 26 different correspondents. 14 petitions are addressed to him in his official capacity as commanding officer at Dionysias. One petition in Latin is directed to the emperors by Abinnaeus himself. Most accounts and lists register tax contributions levied from farmers by the agents of Abinnaeus.
