Imperial rescript

(AD 548-49 (?))

An imperial rescript, addressed to several functionaries - to the dux and to the praeses. An unknown person has addressed a plea to the Emperor about the conduct of a certain Theodosios, who has collected the taxes of the village of Aphrodito but has kept them for his personal use. In the text, the rescript is interestingly referred to as the epistole (l.13). Belongs to the archive of Dioscoros.
