APIS Translation (English)

Taos, komarches, and the elders of the cultivators to Menches, greeting. On the 20th of Phaophi Apynchis met you about the matters on which we had a dispute concerning the land, and for your sake I came to an agreement on most points. Accordingly we sent on the 21st for the seed, but Kotys refused to pay it, referring the matter to the inspector, whereupon we have no sent Apynchis again. Tell us who is at fault. � As for the inspector, if he still continues to oppose the payment of the seed, send him to us under arrest. Good-bye. The 6th year, Phaophi 21. (Addressed on the verso) To Menches.
