Addresses and delivery

I am reliably informed that the street called 'Straight' in Damascus is/was not so straight.

The more detailed delivery instructions in the papyri are:
P.Oxy. XIV 1678 (image) and 1773, XXXIV 2719 ('Give a shout...'), and XLI 2980.
These references are from P.J. Parsons, City of the Sharp-nosed Fish - Greek Lives in Roman Egypt. (London: Orion Publishing Group, 2007), 125-126 and 239nn. 23 and 24.
