An ancient agreement confirming the granting of a loan, from Roman Egypt, and dated May 16, 123 CE. A certain Sokration of Syene (present-day Aswan in southern Egypt) borrowed 109 drachmas to Marcus Annius Balbinus and his sister, Annia Olympias, to pay for an estate in lower Syene.
The contract was written on a fragment of a ceramic vessel (ostracon). The object is on display in Kingston Lacy, Dorset, south England.
