Translation
Eumelos to Ammonios, his most honoured friend, many greetings. Before everything else I pray that you are in good health and I make obeisance for you before the lord Sarapis. I have heard from Katoites that you say: “The administrator annoys me very much concerning the place Apasan, since he did not provide an account although the mother of Dioskoros was present together with him.” Do not heed him! If we have done anything we have done it conformably to usage. I have written to him too and take care of the house. Stay healthy . . . . and take care of yourself. I salute by name all those of your family. Dioskoros and Sarapias and their mother salute you. Stay well. We salute Kanis and his wife and their children.
(Verso) Deliver to my friend(?) Ammonios [- - -]
