This chapter examines whether and in what ways legal practice differed in villages and metropoleis in Roman Egypt. A key question that will be asked if whether people living in villages and metroploeis could access the same legal instrumenta and if so, whether this involved higher costs for villagers. The focus will be the wills, since in both Roman law and local legal practice this type of document required a certain level of solemnity and had original character in comparison with other legal deeds.

Keywords:   wills, Roman law, Egyptian villages, testamentary practice, village legal practices
