Lysimachos, son of Lysimachos, to Hero, my sister by the same father and mother, with Herodes, son of Ptolemaios, her kinsman, as guardian, greeting. I acknowledge that, as soon as you command me, I must convey to you through the grapheion at Tebtynis the vineyard of one and one-half aroura with vines trained on trees which is in my possession near Ibion Eikosipentarouron, which vineyard I have purchased from Didymos, our common brother, who is also your husband.

The second year of Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, Mecheir 5.
