The topic of this article is P.Zauzich 59 (= P.Mich. V 342), a first century AD Demotic tax-receipt issued by the priests of Soknebtunis for a payment of a fee on the transfer of property, i.e. the impost widely known as διδραχμία τοῦ Σούχου. In addition to some new interpretations of the text, the tax mentioned is contextualised and discussed. Several related texts are examined and some improved readings are offered for these as well.

Keywords: Tebtunis; Demotic; Roman period; priesthood; property transfer taxes
