Tsenhor, 517 BCE
In 517 BCE Tsenhor bought a male slave, probably a young boy. The purchase included a transfer of the original title deed to the new owner and a contract to the name of Tsenhor herself. Remarkably, this boy features in the second written contract, assenting to the sale through an oral statement in the notary office, which was then recorded in writing. Excursus on the right of ancient Egyptian women to own property including slaves, using sources from the Middle Kingdom.
