Fragmentarische Notiz einer lateinischen Geburtsanzeige
Languages of publication
The present papyrus – published here in editio princeps – preserves a fragmentary text related to a birth declaration, as evident by the mention of the lex Papia Poppaea, by the formula q(uae) p(roxumae) f(uerunt), and by the reference to the public display. A comparison with the professiones and the testationes preserved on tablets and in papyri proves that the text is likely to be closer to a professio than to a testatio. Its exact nature is unclear, but its brevity suggests it to be a notice.
