APIS Translation (English)

Sabinus to . . . [.] . narion, his mother, and to Demetrous, to both greeting. I want you to know that since the day I sailed down to Alexandria I have found most of the days free from public business, and up to today I have endured interminable delay in the matter of my suit. It happened indeed that the former archidikastes had departed, and we are awaiting the new man. As soon as he is brought here, with god's help I shall leave without delay. Since the day I came I have been with our Antonius, and everything goes well. Salute Aphrodisia and Thermouthis and Tasoucharion and my friend Ptollas. Antonius salutes all of you as well as the children. I pray for your good health.;;(Verso) To Karanis, to the house of Sabinus, the <husband?> of Demetrous.
