Chapter Summary

The 35 papyri of the Babatha archive were labeled P.Yadin 1–35. Although the Babatha archive on its own presents perfect material for a study of the relationship between local and Roman law in the time and place concerned, the information found there can actually be compared to another archive centering on a woman, dating to the same time and found in the same region. The Salome Komaise archive consists of six to eight papyri and is therefore much smaller than the Babatha archive. Like the documents in the Babatha archive, the papyri from the Salome Komaise archive provide a picture of her family. Both Salome’s father and brother died during the period the archive covers.
