This book brings together a vast amount of information pertaining to the society, economy, and culture of a province important to understanding the entire eastern part of the later Roman Empire. Focusing on Eygpt from the accession of Diocletian in 284 to the middle of the fifth century, Roger Bagnall draws his evidence mainly from documentary and archaeological sources, including the papyri that have been published over the last thirty years. This book represents the most expansive study of Egyptian society in trasition yet produced, both voluminously documented and self-critical in its use of papyrological evidence...A tremendous contribution to our understanding of social, economic and administrative activity in early Byzantine Egypt- and therefore to our knowledge of the late Roman Empire as whole.
