Private Banks in Villages of Roman Egypt

Private Banks in Villages of Roman Egypt

(p.122) 8 Private Banks in Villages of Roman Egypt
Village Institutions in Egypt in the Roman to Early Arab Periods

François Lerouxel

British Academy

This paper examines the evidence concerning private banking in the villages of Roman Egypt and aims to demonstrate that the presence of private banks in some villages depended on their location in respect to the district capital, Ptolemais Euergetis. Villages that were located further away from the district capital were more likely to have a private bank in order to facilitate access to banking services for its inhabitants.
