Stern, Matthias: Katalog der Evidenz zum Pagarchen in öffentlicher Sicherheitsfunktion. Version 01

Abstract: The present catalog collects all the papyri testifying the pagarch’s involvement in the maintenance of public security in Byzantine and Early Islamic Egypt. So far, there are 41 relevant documents providing insight into the pagarch’s rôle concerning such activities by some means or other. The texts, their respective translations as well their respective interpretations collected in this manuscript form the second main part of the paper “Der Pagarch und die Organisation des öffentlichen Sicherheitswesens im spätantiken Ägypten“ (forthcoming). The catalog consists of carefully updated and only partially revised versions of the texts as they are to be found in the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (www.papyri.info).
