Amin BENAISSA, Rural Settlement of the Oxyrhynchite Nome. A Papyrological Survey,

The Trismegistos project is pleased to announce the fourth volume in its series Trismegistos Online Publications: Amin Benaissa, Rural Settlement of the Oxyrhynchite Nome. A Papyrological Survey, Köln / Leuven 2009, 417 pp. This is a comprehensive and up-to-date gazetteer of the villages and hamlets of the Oxyrhynchite nome. It provides first a critically compiled list of the papyrological attestations of each settlement. In addition, it presents in summary form the information recoverable from the papyri about individual villages, such as their relative location, topographical features, religious institutions, and the officials, occupations and important landowners associated with them. This publication will be a useful resource to papyrologists studying and editing Oxyrhynchite documents as well as to scholars interested in the topography and rural society of Graeco-Roman Egypt.
This is the first instalment in the TOP-series which does not simply present data from the Trismegistos database in a more stable way for easier reference, but which adds information not previously available, linking to the database. We have adapted our publication policy in this sense and are now offering Trismegistos Online Publications as a peer-reviewed series aiming to provide freely downloadable pdf-documents with scholarly tools based upon or providing links to the Trismegistos database. Further information can be found on http://www.trismegistos.org/top.php
,"> Trismegistos TOP where all volumes can be downloaded.
