Letter from Apollonios to Zenon

(27th December, 256 B.C.)

Apollonios orders Zenon to plant fir-trees all over the park and round the vineyard and the olive-groves, in the number of at least three hundred. For the tree has a striking appearance and will be of service to the king. That is to say, it would provide timber for ship-building besides being an ornament to the estate.
