TM Arch id: 50
Protagonist: Osoroeris (Go to TM People)
Description: Osoroeris, son of Horos, was a choachyte-priest in the Memnoneia. His archive is linked with the archive of Panas, son of Pechtes (TM ArchID 364), another member of his family. Choachytes were libation pourers to whom the deceased bodies were entrusted; they were also responsible for food offerings. The archive belonged to two generations of choachytes: Horos II, and after the latter’s death in 111 BC, his eldest son Osoroeris. Horos and Osoroeris also kept documents from other family members: Horos’ brother Hasos I; Horos’ wife Sachperis I; Horos’ son Chapochrates; Osoroeris’ brother Nechtmonthes and Osoroeris’ daughter Sachperis. Most of the texts in this archive are sale and inheritance documents mainly for liturgies, but it also contains some sales related to other property. It also contains a professional document on the association of the choachytes. The archive also preserved seven petitions and lawsuit dossiers. The most importante lawsuit contains the Hermias-case, in which the Greek Hermias claimed the house of the choachytes, because in his view, it had belonged to his deceased father Ptolemaios. The case can be broken down in seven phases. The archive contains some private documents as well. At last there are left a few problematic documents because they are rather expected to belong to other choachyte families.
