See s.v. γεωργέω for one or two citations of a ubiquitous word, enough to indicate some of the Egyptian farmer’s public burdens. We might add reference to a docket of papers in P Eleph, dated B.C. 223–2, relating to the insolvency of tenants who had found their task too heavy : in 15.8 οἱ δ᾽ ῢ ̣̣π ̣ο ̣γεγραμμένοι γεωργοὶ ἐπέδωκαν ἡμῖν (officials who make their report to a bank) ὑπόστασιν , an ";undertaking"; to take over these liabilities. That γεωργός was common outside Egypt may be illustrated by its appearance in Syll 510 (Ephesus, ii/B.C.) quinquiens, 531.40 (Amorgos, iii/B.C.), 632.4 (Athens, i/B.C.), 647.20 (Eleusis, c. B.C. 320), OGIS 519.7 (Asia, c. A.D. 245). In MGr γιωργός = ";peasant.";
