Letter from Amyntas to Zenon

(257 BC (?))

Amyntas announces that he has sent Apollonios a consignment of fish of various kinds and regrets that he has been unable to send Zenon the Chian wine and the other things which he had ordered. The excuse he gives is that the king is summoning Apollonios back to town and urging the dispatch (?) of the boat in order that his messenger may use it. The date of the letter is lost.
