Notification to Amosis, scribe of the village of Apollonias, from Heracon, superintendent of the estate of Pitholaus. On the ... of Epeiph Theophilus son of Dositheus, Philistion son of . . ., and Timaeus son of Telouphis, all three Jews of the Epigone, raided the fruit-garden of the aforesaid Pitholaus, which is in the bounds of the aforesaid village, and stripped the grapes from ten vines ; and when Horus the guard ran out against them, they maltreated him and struck him on any part of the body that offered ; and they carried off a vinedresser's pruning-hook. The aforesaid robbers are living in Kerkeosiris. I estimate the grapes gathered as enough to make 6 metretae of wine. {Endorsed} To the royal scribe. Year 12, Epeiph 10.
