Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 255
Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 255 (P. Oxy. 255 or P. Oxy. II 255) is a fragment of a census return, in Greek. It was discovered in Oxyrhynchus. The manuscript was written on papyrus in the form of a sheet. It is dated to the 28 September – 27 October 48. Currently it is housed in the Union Theological Seminary (Rare Book Library) in New York.
The document is similar to POxy 254. It was written by a woman called Thermoutharion and was addressed to the officials. At the end is a declaration on oath that no one else was living in the house "neither a stranger, nor an Alexandrian citizen, nor a freedman, nor a Roman citizen, nor an Egyptian".
