Roman Republic, Lucius Caesius, 112 - 111 B.C.
|150-100| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |Lucius| |Caesius,| |112| |-| |111| |B.C.|, An Egyptian papyrus of 112 B.C. issues instructions to a local official in the Fayum for the visit of a Roman senator, Lucius Memmius. He was apparently visiting for pleasure, to see the sights, and was to receive a reception similar to that which would be given to a great dignitary of the kingdom. Everything was to be ready for his entertainment, including food for the sacred crocodiles. It is an incidental light upon the subservience to members of the Roman elite which it was now thought politic to show in the Ptolemaic Kingdom.
