[- - -] that Kronion <has received> from Sokrates the entire sum of money established for the cession of the aforesaid two arourai, and that he, Kronion, and his heirs guarantee to Sokrates and his heirs the property in accordance with this cession with every guarantee from all public dues and all imposts and every tax from past times up to the present seventeenth year and including the present seventeenth year of Tiberius Caesar Augustus, and from private encumbrances and every claim forever, and <he shall relinquish the arourai> neither sold previously even in part nor mortgaged nor alienated in any way. If Kronion violates any of the aforesaid provisions, the prosecution or accusation or claim or hindrance or fraud which he or another on his behalf shall make with regard to this property shall be void in every respect, and he shall in addition pay to Sokrates double the amount of the damages and expenses and a fine of a thousand silver drachmai, and a like amount to the treasury.

And I have received from Sokrates the entire price agreed upon in full from hand to hand out of the house and I guarantee the sale with every guarantee both from all public dues and all imposts and from every tax from past times up to the seventeenth year of Tiberius Caesar Augustus and including the present seventeenth year of Tiberius Caesar Augustus, and from private encumbrances and every claim forever, and I shall hand over to Sokrates the tax receipts and the legal instruments <made out> to me as aforesaid.
