In the letters that I sent by Aurelian I wrote you to get from Philetas four . . . which I left with him, but nonetheless I wrote to him also about this, as well as the itinerary that I made through Syria, Asia, and Achaea, as far as Rome. If by luck you come to Alexandria, [buy(?)] for me . . . Marseilles flasks so that [I may not put off giving thanks(?)] for the favors of the lord Sarapis . . .
