Papyrus Cattaoui was first published by G. Botti, then director of the Alexandrian Museum, its provenance is unknown. P. Catt. had alread y been the subject of studies on the soldiers’ marriages when Wilcken and Meyer then discovered that BGU 114 was contiguous with the fragmentary top of the first column of the recto of P. Catt. Grenfell, Hunt and Meyer (1906) accordingly edited and republished the two papyri as one; this version was included in Mitteis and Wilcken’s Grundzüge und Chrestomathie der Papyruskunde (1912) as M. Chr. no. 372.
