Date: 3rd cent. A.D.

Aurelius Dius to Aurelius Horion, my sweetest father, many greetings. I make supplication for you every day before the gods of this place. Now do not be uneasy, father, about my studies ; I am working hard and taking relaxation; I shall do finely. I salute my mother Tamiea and my sister Tnepherous and my sister Philous, I salute also my brother Patermouthis and my sister Thermouthis, I salute also my brother Heracl . . . and my brother Kollouchis, I salute my father Melanus and my mother Timpesouris and her son. Gaia salutes you all, my father Horion and Thermouthis salute you all. I pray for your health, father. {Addressed} Deliver to Aurelius Horion from his son Dius.
