This volume contains 25 papyri, which were excavated in the village of Karanis in the north-eastern Fayum by American archaeologists (1924-1926). Half of the new texts are literary, mostly from the library of the tax collector Socrates; the others are documents that can shed new light on the activities of the tax collector or of other inhabitants of Karanis. They give us a vivid picture of village life in Graeco-Roman Egypt in the 2nd century AD.

Arabic letters on papyrus challenge the modern reader. There are few to no diacritical dots to distinguish homographs, no systematic spacing between single words, and in the majority of cases a low degree of graphical structuring. However, contemporary readers usually read and understood these documents easily - probably because the recipient of a letter knew what to expect. The letters are formulaic, and their information packaging follows an algorithm typical for their time and content. Here formulaic letter writing means not only the reuse of the same formulae or topoi but expressing thoughts in a predictable linguistic way and order, both as a matter of readability and as one of adequacy and politeness. The main concern of this work is to discover these unwritten rules and norms behind Arabic letter writing on papyrus.
