P.Cair.Preis. 20: List of liturgists.
List of liturgists who are residents of the East Town quarter of Hermopolis and perform their liturgies in that quarter of the city, with the addition of the names of their guarantors. The list includes someone called Makarios, son of Soïs, deacon (l. 20: diakôn). It is not sure whether this should be interpreted in an ecclesiastical sense, since, on the basis of an imperial ruling of 319 AD, the clergy were exempted from liturgies. The name Makarios may point both to a pagan or Christian background. The editor suggests that the most simple explanation for the inclusion of a deacon is the provisional character of the list, which allowed for the elimination of flaws afterwards (Salomons 2014, intro).
|Selection criteria||Mention of Christian cult officials/institutions|
The list is given for the 15th new indiction i.e. 356/357 (BL VIII 76 = Lewis 1982: 119, n. 9).
