Memoranda for a Petition
The text has three sections: a list of five numbered merismoi, the first three being money assessments, the fourth an assessment in kind, the fifth partly in money, partly in kind; a statement of abuses suffered at the hands of the komarchs, who are said to be in collusion with the praepositus pagi; and what appears to be another assessment in kind, although it is not given a number like those in the first section of the text.
