HGV 869 Translation (English) [xml]


1  To Zenon, greetings, Teos. While I was making the journey to Philadelphia, I was attacked by a robber. Later, on a visit to Arsinoë, I found the man who had attacked me and pointed him out to Hermais, the archiphylakitês there. Please write a letter to Hermais so that he may send this person to you, so that I, who have fled to you, may receive justice. Farewell.


10  Year (?) 32, Hathyr 15. Teos (concerning) robbery. (J. Bauschatz, Law and Enforcement, p. 225)
