    The chapter discusses the Katochoi archive from the point of view of idiolects. Several documents written in the hands of Apollonios and Ptolemaios, sons of Glaukias, can be identified within the archive, which comprises of several types of documents. I study whether these autograph texts can be said to represent the idiolects of Apollonios and Ptolemaios and how this perspective might change our interpretation of the interesting linguistic variation found in the whole archive. Apollonios, for example, wrote many drafts and copies which do not necessarily reflect his personal language use in the morphological or syntactic levels. However, the orthography reveals individual practices. I will present examples of language use by both brothers, comparing them to the scribal language use found in the same archive.

    This article provides a new reading of a notarial signature in papyrus BGU III 997, a copy of an agoranomic sale from the Ptolemaic period. The signature was not transcribed in the original edition since only traces of it survive and the papyrus seems blank and intact at that place. A closer examination reveals that only the upper layer of the papyrus has peeled off. How, when, and why the alteration took place, remains unsolved.
