This is a rare example of a private letter written in Greek that has survived outside Egypt. It was discovered on two parts of an ostracon, excavated from the site of ancient Nikonion, on the north-west coast of the Black Sea. The complete text was first published in 2011 by B.Awaniowicz ( ZPE - academia.edu ); and his translation is reproduced here.
