Memorandum to Aratos from Aristeus

(257 B.C. (?))

Aristeus, a man of good position in the household of Apollonios, asks Aratos to remind Zenon the oikonomos and Kriton the admiral to purchase some rugs and garments and a Tanitic bed-spread and bring them down to Alexandria, as he had asked them to do before they left town.
