About the database

This database of papyrological evidence was compiled by Dr Myrto Malouta as part of her work as Research Assistant for OXREP between 2005 and 2008. It shows more than 600 references to water-lifting devices and irrigation facilities from Egypt, with an emphasis on the Oxyrhynchite Nome, dating between 300 BC and AD 700. It can be used as an accompaniment to M. Malouta and A.I. Wilson (2013), 'Mechanical irrigation: water-lifting devices in the archaeological evidence and in the Egyptian papyri', in: A.K. Bowman and A.I. Wilson, The Roman Agricultural Economy, OUP, Oxford.
