Also called archive of Family archive of Tebtynis

Protagonist: Four succesive archive keepers, following the line of the first-born sons of the ancestor Maron: Herakleides I, Herakleides-Valerius I, Lysimachos-Didymos I and Philosarapis II. They kept texts of other family members as well. The family members are named in the database as in the list of (all possible) family members in P. Fam. Tebt., p. 5-11. For a stemma, see the on-line description of the archive. This archive allows us to study four generations of one of the wealthiest families in the Roman Arsinoites (AD 89-224). Several family members belonged to the 6475 Greek katoikoi, a privileged hellenized class in the Arsinoites nomos. Several members of the family received citizenship of Antinoopolis shortly after AD 130. (Go to TM People)
