Description[edit]

This and the two subsequent papyri (P. Oxy. 147 and 148) are receipts for payments made by the monks of the monastery of Andreas. This one records a payment to Serenus, a stableman, for carrying hay and chaff from the barn belonging to the landlord to the stable of the monastery. The measurements of the fragment are 80 by 298 mm.[2]

It was discovered by Grenfell and Hunt in 1897 in Oxyrhynchus. The text was published by Grenfell and Hunt in 1898.[2]
