(Recto);;Kriton to Zenon greeting. As our employee Polemon is transferring his mother's sister to Philadelphia, he has asked me to write to you to have a hundred artabai of wheat bought for him, in order that he may have a supply to feed the household. You will do me a favour then by buying it for him as advantageously as possible. And as soon as you buy it, [[- - -]] write to us and to Polemon, in order that we may know and may get the price from him and send it to you. Farewell. Year 33, Pachon 14.;;(Verso);;To Zenon.;To Philadelpheia. Kriton.;(docket, 2nd hand, upside down) About purchase of 100 artabai of wheat)
