This paper considers some evidence for active priestly management of the economic affairs of temples in the Ptolemaic period, especially in the Fayum. In particular, I examine the case of the ‘royal temple land’ attested in late second century bc Kerkeosiris, and suggest that the most common sacred tenant, the temple of Petesouchos, may have done so as a means of economic survival.
