Πτολεμαῖος Ἥρωνι τῶι υἱ(*)ῷ χαίρειν.
μέχρι σήμερον οὐχ εὕραμεν ἀγοραστήν. ἐκχωρῶ
πάντα Διδύμῳ ἐπὶ τῷ λαβεῖν με τὸ τρίτον μέρος
τοῦ δανείου καὶ τῶν ἄλλων. εἰ μὴ ὅτι συνεζήτηκα

APIS Translation (English)

Ptolemaios to Heron, his son, greeting. Until today we did not find a buyer. I am ceding everything to Didymos on condition that I receive a third part of the loan and of the rest. Except that I have had a dispute with Ptolemaios, we would have left long ago; for he was enraged when he came down. Therefore I am writing to you that you may know. Salute your children and all your household and Tais and her children. [I pray for your] good health.;(Verso) Deliver to Heron, boundary inspector.
