I know this is going to appear patronising but thank you for re posting the link
(I am guilty and hadn't got around to reading it all).

So we have the earliest specific dated ostraca at 68AD and a papyrus from 300 AD
Know the exact number of men 913 at 300AD and 110 men at 140AD
Know the wages, the tools distributed, even that the postman was allowed a drink!
Even where they got their fish and variety!

Gee whiz, whatever was buried there must have been huge!, if they managed to
rip out 16, 150-200 ton columns for the Pantheon 118 -125AD, and had enough buried treasure to escalate production
works for the next two hundred years!
Those sneaky Romans, they certainly could keep a secret , and create a scam... must have been
when the mafia got started?

Fascinating reading. Thanks

Cheers
