Translation
(Recto)
Philotas to Zenon greeting. Know that I have now arrived from Memphis, where in the first place I have given money to the soldiers to buy rations and in the next place have delivered to the revenue-collector all the money that was in hand, borrowing an additional sum from the bank of Memphis. But since my arrival nothing has yet been paid in. It is advisable therefore that you write to Thrason about this matter, telling him to instruct his agents to transfer the sums collected to the bank in order that payment may be made immediately. Farewell. Year 31, Thoth 4.
