Letter from Amyntas to Zenon

(Date of reception: About 26th March, 257 BC)

Amyntas writes about his friend Demetrios, whose goods were now being sold up and who was himself still in prison. He offers proof that the silver plate in question really belongs to the household. Subjoined is a copy of a letter which he has written to Apollonios, but which he does not wish Zenon to deliver unless he and Artemidoros the physician agree that it is advisable. The object of the letter to Apollonios is not to plead for Demetrios, but to excuse himself for having lent Demetrios the plate in the beginning.
