APIS Translation (English)
Apollonides to Zenon, greeting. You wrote me to give to Kriton, instead of the two mattresses of forty minas' weight, a mattress of a talent's weight. But I have had made for you, instead of those of forty minas' weight, two purple-bordered ones of fifty minas' with excellent seaming. And for these two I have received from Kriton as labor charge 2 1/2 obols per mina, total for the 100 minas, 41 drachmas 4 obols; and for dyeing of both mattresses, 20 drachmas; and pay for seaming, 1 drachma: total, 62 drachmas 4 obols. And I have given him both the mattresses. For the seven [mattresses] which you wrote me to have prepared, I have 400 drachmas, pending account. It will be carried out, therefore, as you have ordered. I have also bought up the pigs for him. Good by. Year 29, Pachon 25. And for whatever else you may need, write to me.
