The volume, which reproduces
"fragments of three rolls covering
three successive years in the later
half of the second century A.D. when
Egypt was under Roman domina-
tion," contains "more material than
has ever been gathered in one ok
on taxation and the economic system
of Egypt." The papyri were umearthed
in the village of Karanis in thea
Fayum district southwest of Cairo
where the University was excavating
from 1924 to 1931.
The tax reports reprinted in this
volume deal with taxes paid in money.
The money-paid taxes were either
poll taxes, land taxes or taxes on
certain types of incomes. The poll
tax or personal tax was collected
from every male who was more than
14 years old and less than 62. This
tax was introduced into Egypt, in all
likelihood, by Augustus, who imposed
the tax on the subject people and
exempted Romans and partially ex-
empted Greeks. Associated with the
poll tax was the guard tax paid for
the maintenance of police protection
of rivers, fields and towers. The Ro-
man government made annual sur-
veys. in order to lay a fair tax orn
lands, some of which had depreciated
in value when the Nile had not flood-
ed the area properly. A tax of 1 3
was laid on incomes from bath estab-
lishments and dove cotes.
The material from Egypt reveals
