FROM THE PRIESTS OF APHRODITE TO THE DIOIKETES

Greek text:  PSI 328
Date:   257 B.C.

The priests of Aphrodite to Apollonius the dioiketes greeting. In accordance with what the king has written to you, to give 100 talents of myrrh for the burial of the Hesis, please order this to be done. For you know that the Hesis is not brought up to the nome unless we have in readiness everything that they require for the burial, because [the embalming is done ?] on the day of her death. Know that the Hesis is Isis, and may she give you favour in the eyes of the king. Goodbye. Year 28, Hathur 15.
