Palaeography, archive connection and historic context led the editors to suggest a range of date around 360 for the Nepheros corespondence (Kramer and Shelton 1987: 5). According to the study of the prices mentioned in the archive, Bagnall 1989: 75 (= BL IX, 173) suggests a range after 352.

The P.Neph. were bought on the market, but, according to the seller, they were all found together. Nothing in the archive led the editors to doubt this statement. They add that the archive was probably found in the immediate vicinity of the ancient location of the monastery of Phathor (see Kramer and Shelton 1987: 5).
