Also called archive of Nestnephis law suit

Protagonist: Satabous son of Herieus (Go to TM People)

Description: Dossier concerning Satabous son of Herieus, containing papers on two lawsuits. One opposes Satabous to Nestnephis and deals with a house and psilos topos in Soknopaiou Nesos. The other is between Satabous and Harpagathes concerning a loan. Besides petitions, the archive contains copies of official letters, title deeds, a court proceeding and an oath. Satabous is also ‘scribe of the priests’, but it is uncertain if texts written by him can be attributed to the archive. Schentuleit (CdE 82 (2007), p. 118-125) offers a list of all texts mentioning members of the family, but not all of these belong to the archive; her no. 48-57 have not been included here because they are apparently not part of the same group.
