Letter to Zenon containing copy of letter from Apollonios
(Date of the letter of Apollonios: 16th April 256 or 254 B.C.)
A farmer on Apollonios' land had been arrested because he had failed to pay some tax. Zenon is asked to write to Boubalos and Spendates to set him at liberty until the tax-collectors arrive, in order that the land may be weeded. The writer adds a copy of a letter addressed to Thrason and Paramonos by Apollonios, ordering them not to trouble the farmers in Tapteia about the salt-tax.
