A text from about 100 AD, but showing the same general practice:

“Gaius Vibius Maximus, Prefect of Egypt, says: since the enrollment by household is at hand, it is necessary for all who for any reason are outside their nomes [districts] to return to their domestic hearths, that they may also accomplish the customary dispensation of enrollment and continue steadfastly in the husbandry that belongs to them.” (cited in Deissman, Light from the Ancient East, pp. 270-271)
