Grammatical Corrections

Grammatical Correction in line 17

In line 8 of the papyrus, the scribe had written ὧν τιμὴ δραχμῶν π. In this line, the relative pronoun incorrectly agrees with the word δραχμῶν, rather than its antecedent, θήλεια. The scribe corrects his mistake in line 17, which reads θήλεια λευκὴ ἐκπηδήϲαϲα παρὰ Νικίου νυκτόϲ, ἧϲ τιμὴ δραχμῶν π. Here, the relative pronoun, ἧϲ, is the proper case, gender and number.
