Longinus Celer to his most esteemed Maximus, greeting. Before everything I pray for your health and that also of all your family. I have to inform you, brother, that Tiberinus has found our brother Sempronius with the tunic <or: cuirass?> (kithonion) which you sent him in a boat making for Taposiris, one day's journey from Alexandria. He was carrying bread to the soldiers there. Don't think that he went off on this business just at random; he chose the right time; it is a piece of luck that he is going. For your information, I gave this instruction straight away to Tiberinus: "Give me the girdle, and I'll take it and let Celer know." So I have to inform you, I have taken charge of it till you arrive in good health. Do please let me know if there is anything you need here, and I will send it at once. Greetings to all our family individually. All my family send individual greetings to all yours. I pray for your health and the best of luck.
Deliver to Maximus the physician(?) from his brother Longinus Celer.
