Translation
To Ornymenes from Peteminis from Mouchis in the Polemon division. I have filed a petition with Athenodoros the dioiketes against Pythion, the oikonomos of the same division, with regard to 4000 drachmai which he extorted from me and the . . . in addition to 5 talents, 2300 (drachmai). And when my petition was sent to you, you wrote to Philon to make him appear before you. Since, then, the fellow is avoiding furnishing justice to me, I therefore request, if you approve, that you write an order for me to the police so that, wherever he is found, he may be brought before you. Failing this, . . . may his house be locked up.
