Certain private associations in Ptolemaic Egypt engaged in distinctly Egyptian religious activities and compiled rules in native Demotic. These rules closely parallel those written in Greek and Latin, however, and examination of several rules from Tebtunis further suggests that their associations played social roles analogous to those played by associations elsewhere in the Graeco-Roman world.

Certaines associations privées en Égypte ptolémaïque se consacrent à des activités religieuses typiquement égyptiennes et établissent des règlements en démotique. Ces règlements ressemblent toutefois à ceux qui sont rédigés en langues grecque et latine et l'étude de quelques textes relatifs à Tebtunis suggère, en outre, que ces associations jouent un rôle social analogue aux rôles joués par d'autres associations ailleurs dans le monde gréco-romaine.
