Bureaucracy didn't succeed too
well in ancient Egypt during the
Byzantine period, Prof. Allan
Chester Johnson of Princeton
University said yesterday in the
last talk of the Thomas Spencer
Jerome lecture series.
The Edict of Justinian allowed
the prefect of Egypt a bureau of
600 clerks, Prof. Johnson said.
However, each person was paid, in
kind, enough to support only one
person, and no allowance wali
made for families. Dishonesty,
graft and corruption in the Egyp-
tian administration was the result,
Prof. Johnson cited a munici-
pal budget for the city of Alex-
andria, dated in the fourth cen-
tury, which included about $10,000
a year for four items - public
baths, the "anti-cantherus," the
meaning of which is unknown, a
wheat dole for the poor and horse-
racing. None of the items expect-
ed in a modern city's budget are
included, he pointed out.
