This article presents the edition of a hitherto unpublished declaration of surety in Greek from 6th century Middle Egypt kept in the Papyrus Collection of the Austrian National Library. In this fragmentary document surety is provided for a gardener (?) called Neilammon son of Timotheos. Of particular interest in the papyrus is an attestation of a notary called Elias unknown to date, who also appears in two other Vienna papyri published in this volume for the first time.
