Porterage account

(259 B.C.)

The porterage account for Apollonios' share of the cargo of Patron. Many of the goods can easily be identified with those entered in the timÍsis. The articles of which there is no mention in the latter, lampstands, beds, table, sideboard, etc., were either not subject to import duty or were admitted free because they counted as ship's furniture.
