Abstract: All pairs $ (p,n)$ such that there exists an $ n \times n$ symmetric matrix $ A$ with entries in the ring $ {\mathbb{Z}_p}$ of $ p$-adic integers such that $ {A^n} = p \cdot U$ with $ U$ invertible in $ {M_{n \times n}}({\mathbb{Z}_p})$ are determined. It is shown that such matrices $ A$ can be used to construct examples of deformations of abelian varieties.
