Letter from Iollas to Zenon

(Date of reception: About 21st July, 257 BC)

A fragmentary letter from Iollas the weaver about Addaios, who appears to have been an agent of Apollonios at Memphis. Iollas had fallen into disgrace and had been severely flogged. He had intended to run away to Zenon for protection, but Zenodoros had prevented him and made him write a letter instead.
