FROM PHILOSARAPIS TO APION

Greek text:   POxy 1664
Date:   3rd cent. A.D.

Hail, my lord Apion, I, Philosarapis, salute you, praying for the welfare and prosperity of you and all your household. That not only we but aho our ancestral gods themselves remember you is manifest to all; for all our young men carry you in their hearts, remembering your goodwill. Do me the pleasure, my lord, of writing to me about anything you need from home; for I shall be most pleased to accept your commands as favours. I salute the most estimable gymnasiarch Horion. I pray for your health, my kind and most noble lord Apion, and lifelong prosperity with those with whom it pleases you to live.

{Addressed}   To Apion, gymnasiarch and ex-strategos of the Antaeopolite nome, from Philosarapis, holding office as sacrificial magistrate of Antaeopolis.
