P.Kellis I 30: Exchange of ownership rights
Exchange of property rights between Aurelius Psenpnouthes from the Panopolite nome and Aurelius Horos from Kellis concerning immovables in the middle-Egyptian village of Aphrodite.
Horos gives the sixth part of a farm in the Southern part of Aphrodite, which he had inherited from his mother (apparently co-owner with Aurelius Psenpnouthes). The precise location of the immovable (a house?) brought in by Psenpnouthes is unclear. The document is of considerable interest because of the description of the family of the addressee of the document, Aurelius Horos son of Pamour, and also because it illustrates the fact that this Christian family had properties in the village of Aphrodite, otherwise undocumented in the middle of the 4th c. See also P.Kellis I 32.
The papyrus consists now of two combinations of fragments. On both sides, the writing runs parallel with the fibres.
