APIS Translation (English)

Apol . . . to Apollinarius, his brother, greeting. Having learned that you are in Bacchias I salute you, brother, and I urge you to write to us immediately concerning your health. For I have already used up a papyrus roll in writing to you, and I received barely one letter from you, in which you informed me that I should receive the cloaks and the pig. The pig I did not receive, but the cloaks I did get. Farewell. Pharmouthi 4(?). (2 hand) I pray for your good health and pleasure, brother. Do you receive four good lettuces, a bundle of beets, 21 bulbs, 16(?) greens, and three good semi-salted fish. Theon, my brother, salutes you and urges you to come to us from Bacchias. For observe that those who come from there arrive within the second hour.;;(Verso) To Apollinarius, his friend.
