The book (re)publishes and newly interprets five accounts from the second century B.C.E. Menches Papers. The book offers an imaginative historical reading of the accounts, detailing how in Ptolemaic Egypt various government officials on tour through the country side were received in one specific village (Kerkeosiris) by the local official (village scribe). The accounts also give insight into part of the financial management of the office of village scribe.
