Census Edict

* In 48 AD Thermoutharion was required to return to her home city for a census while in 104 AD Gaius Vibius Maximus, the Roman Prefect (governor) of Egypt, ordered those of each household that were absent, must return to their own home to their native city for the census.

Census Edict for Roman Egypt (Greek Papyrus)
“I Thermoutharion along with Apollonius, my guardian, pledge an oath to Tiberius Claudius Caesar that the preceding document gives an accurate account of those returning, who live in my household.”
