APIS Translation (English)
Poseidonios to the priests at Teptunis, greeting and good health. I too am well. Sokonophis and Opis, members of your body, have come down to the city, and intimate to me the hereditary friendship which you have for me of old; so, whatever you may require, do not hesitate to command my services, because of old I revere and worship the temple. Good-bye. The 16th year, Phaophi 9. (Addressed on the verso) From Poseidonios to the priests of Teptunis.
