Publication of two late Ptolemaic loans that exhibit unusual diplomatic features but were nevertheless registered in their respective writing offices. Both have a large blank space where the body contract would normally be written, neither contains the autograph acknowledgement of the syngraphophylax or mention of witnesses, and the lender’s name is left blank. These irregularities are discussed and put in the context of the changing nature of the grapheion in the late Ptolemaic period.
