Also called archive of Flavius Dioskoros and Sophia

Protagonist: Flavius Dioskoros son of Apollos was a landlord and notary in Aphrodito, but also a poet, and owner of a library, which included i.a. a codex of Menander (TM 61596 = LDAB 2745). Perhaps the papyri dealing with Phoibammon son of Triadelphos should be considered a separate archive (cf. Fournet, Pap. Congr. XXII (Firenze 1998), 2001, p. 475 n. 2).

Description: 680 texts: 63 (para)literary [62 Greek, 1 Greek-Coptic] and 617 documents [577 Greek, 40 Coptic]; contracts, petitions, letters, accounts, receipts, poems.
