Select Papyri, 1.101


FROM ESTHLADAS TO HIS PARENTS


Date: 130 B.C.

Esthladas to his father and mother greeting and good health. As I have often written to you to keep a stout heart and take care of yourself until things settle down, once again please exhort yourself and our dependants to take courage. For news has come that Paos is sailing up in the month of Tubi with abundant forces to subdue the mobs at Hermonthis and deal with them as rebels. Look after my sisters also and Pelops and Stachys and Senathuris. Goodbye. Year 40, Choiach 23. {Addressed} Deliver at Pathyris to my father.
