(Col. II)
(2nd hand)
From Nemesion, son of Zoilos, [[from]] 'collector of money taxes', from Philadelphia in the division of Herakleides of the Arsinoite nome, [[collector of money taxes]]. Horion, son of Petosiris, who was assigned together with me, in the tenth year of Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus Imperator, to the collection of public taxes, and served as collector for four accounting periods, scorned his obligations, no longer undertaking the collection, although he is neither an exempt 'cultivator' nor in the public list (leukoma). Therefore I ask you, the savior of all, to write to Clotios, the local centurion, to compel Horion to undertake his office of collector of public taxes, in order that no deficit may accrue to the public taxes, and we may be benefitted.
