Public notices were frequently posted in the cities, towns, and villages of Graeco-Roman Egypt. The available data makes it possible to answer several questions related to this topic: What material was used for posting notices? Did the authorities issue any instructions on the format of public notices? For how long should a notice be posted? This should make it possible to make a fresh evaluation of the famous Peukestas order, a notice posted in the Saqqâra religious complex and directed at Greek soldiers.
