Menas οἰκέτης degli Apioni tra realtà e finzione: la formula di rappresentanza nei papiri e la legge di Giustiniano

Federica Silveri

Abstract

Menas οἰκέτης is the intermediary in about 100 contracts related to the Apionic family, that come from Oxyrhynchus. His name appears through such an extremely long time period (523- 620) that his very existence is doubtful. A thorough analysis of the representation formula, focusing on its structure and variations, allows to correct some readings of the papyri, and, on the background of the legal context, could also shed light on the issue.
