FROM SARAPODORUS TO PHANION

Original text: BGU 1676
Date: 2nd cent. A.D.

Sarapodorus to Phanion his brother greeting. I wish you to know that I went to the centurion and he sent me to a court of arbitration for trial in the charge of a sword-bearer. And the arbitrators having heard from your opponents that the matter turned entirely upon you, I gave security to the sword-bearer till the 23rd, to allow me time to send for you. Be good enough then on receiving my letter to come up by the appointed date of the 23rd. If you are minded not to come up, they will send a soldier with me to find you and we shall have a further sum to pay for travelling expenses. I pray for your health. {Addressed} Deliver to Phanion from Sarapodorus.
