The article offers the first edition of a Greek papyrus belonging to the Austrian National Library, which preserves the biggest part of a sale on delivery for reeds. This document offers valuable information concerning not only reeds as products involved in such a transaction, but also the production and use of reeds in general. Therefore, it supplements our knowledge provided by the few already published sales on delivery which come from the Hermopolite nome which also date to the early seventh century.
