Hotephres' bureau was a temporary residence of Hotephres, one of Apollodorus' informants, in Soknopaiou Nesos, Egypt, during the 1st century BCE. From here, Hotephres kept in contact with others via messenger pigeons.
In 48 BCE, Hotephres stole a ledger containing delicate information about the Order of the Ancients from a Greek magistrate, especially about the member known as the Crocodile. Due to the theft, the Crocodile ordered soldiers to arrest Hotephres. As he had fled, the soldiers thrashed his place, killed his dog, and arrested his servant on false charges, taking him with them to the nearby military camp.
