Aurelius Bion also called Ammonius, gymnasiarch, senator, and prytanis in office of the city of Oxyrhynchus, to his dearest Aurelius Dius also called Pertinax, strategos of the Oxyrhynchite nome, greeting. Since I am leaving with others to meet our most illustrious praefect Valerius Firmus on a deputation concerning the quota of the Imperial assessment imposed upon our nome, I beg you, dearest friend, to inform Aurelius Isidorus, ex-chief priest, senator, and irenarch, that he is to act as my deputy in the office of prytanis, until I return. I pray for your health, most dear friend. The 3rd year of the Emperor Caesar Marcus Julius Philippus Pius Felix and Marcus Julius Philippus the most noble and eminent Caesar, Augusti, Epeiph 23.
