Original text: WChrest 469
Date: A.D. 380-390.

Gaius Valerius Eusebius to the riparii in the respective cities from the Thebaid to Antioch. Take over from those who are conducting the levy the new recruits now being sent from the Egyptian diocese, and passing them on from one to another send them forward at your own peril to the city of Antioch, understanding that if any of them should desert, the person through whose negligence he is proved to have escaped shall not get off unpunished, but shall be compelled to produce either the deserter himself or another man in his place and at the same time be brought to justice for his negligence.
