The research highlights women education and the social status of teachers in Al Bahnasa, which was called “Oxyrhynchus” during the Graeco-Roman period. The city is located approximately 20 km West of Beni Mazar in Minya Governorate, and is currently affiliated to Ezbet El-Shareef, the village of Sandafa. It is located about 400 km away from Alexandria. Culture in Oxyrhynchus was limited to the city’s elite community, which consisted of Romans, Greeks, Alexandrians, and Grecian Egyptians.
