APIS Translation (English)
Phileas to Zenon, greeting. Certain of my acquaintances have come to me in behalf of Metrodoros, the man who is handing this letter to you, requesting me to write to you. You will, therefore, do me a favor by making him a collective loan from yourself and your acquaintances. It will be clear to you what sort of man he is from his dress. Good-bye. [Verso:] To Zenon.
