After their initial publication some of the documents were lost, others recovered or discovered, others re-read and better understood, all of them becoming part of a renewed interest in medieval Latin papyri by historians of society, economy and culture, as well as paleographers and diplomatists, jurists, and linguists.2 The lack of papyrologists among them is quite surprising, but it is less puzzling if we consider that an ancient tradition binds these papyri to historians of the Middle Ages and to diplomatists
