Zenon (son of Agreophon) (see Pros.Ptol. I 80 + add.);
Aristandros (oikonomos) (see Pros.Ptol. I 1021 + add.);
Sostratos (see Pros.Ptol. IV 11760)
Philon to Zenon greeting. The reason why you have been kept waiting about the two hundred-drachma pieces is that Aristandros interfered with us. However, this must not go on, but the money will shortly be obtained from other sources and repaid to you. You will be kind enough then not to believe that you have been kept waiting by my fault, but to take note of the real cause. If you or Sostratos need any green wild chickling (arakos), take as much as you wish, whether to the value of the whole sum or to part of it. If not, I have agreed with some shepherds who will pay me a price for it, so that in any case your claim shall be settled. I should have been away in town long ago if this particular thing had not prevented me. Farewell. See that this letter is not thrown aside until I come to you.
