Petesouchus also called Peteuris son of Selebous, Persian of the Epigone, to Hermias also called Hergeus son of Petesouchus, greeting. I acknowledge that I have received from you 241/2 artabas of wheat with an additional one half, which I will repay to you in the month Pauni of the 22nd year conveyed to Kerkeosiris and measured by the dromos measure. If I fail to repay you, I will forfeit to you forthwith as the value of each artaba 3000 drachmas of copper or the highest price then current, and a fine of 60 drachmas of coined silver and the damage, and to the Treasury the like amount. This bond shall be valid wherever produced. Goodbye. The 22nd year, Mecheir 23.
