The Zenon Archive is an important group of ancient papyri because it is one of our earliest records of life in Egypt under the rule of the Ptolemies. The Zenon archive contains a large variety of documents, touching upon numerous aspects of life in Hellenistic Egypt. All of these documents were collected and retained by Zenon, the assistant to one of the main adminsitrators under the Ptolemies.
