Content
Letter from Apollonios to Zenon, concerning Pais the brewer, who had agreed to take over the brewery in Philadelpheia for a certain amount, but pretended to Zenon that the amount was lower than the one agreed with Apollonios: the dioiketes tells to Zenon to detain Pais by force and to check the accounts of the beer-house
Persons
Apollonios (dioiketes) (see Pros. Ptol. I 16 + add.);
Zenon (son of Agreophon) (see Pros.Ptol. I 80 + add.);
Pais, zytopoios (see Pros.Ptol. V 12488)
Translation
(Recto)
Apollonios to Zenon greeting. You wrote to us that Pais the brewer says that he has agreed with us for eleven artabs a day. He has therefore lied to you; for he undertook to brew twelve artabai and it was on that understanding that I have sent him to you. Detain him then until we arrive, and order your agent to check the accounts of the beer-shop and follow all the operations of the brewery. Farewell. Year 31, Dystros [7], Phamenoth 14.
(Verso)
To Zenon.
