Duplicate contract

(4th October, 255 B.C.)

Three fragments of a duplicate contract attested by six witnesses. A number of peasants acknowledge that they have received from Zenon an advance of money, at the rate of two drachmae for each aroura, for the cutting of the brush-wood on the land which they have taken up in basin 4 of the Philadelphian estate. It seems to be stipulated that the money is to be returned on the completion of the work to Zenon's satisfaction by the 1st of Thoth. If the peasants fail to fulfil their contract they become liable to a fine of one and a half times the amount of the money.
