"To Neoptolemos, decurio, from Petesouchos the Elder, son of Esouris, Panetbauis, son of Joseph, and Harmais, son of Panetbauis, three Persians of the Epigone, who vouch for the payment together. We wish to rent from the olive-farm named after Eukrates, the olive fruits which have ripened in the present 3rd year of Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus Imperator. We commit ourselves to pay the total amount of 460 stamped silver drachmas as well as extra fees for . . artabas of black olives. We will pay this rent in two equally divided [halves] in the two months of [Phaophi and Hathyr], at each month the same share of the rent, if you are willing to let us rent us (the crop) unter all the aforementioned conditions. . ."
