Letter from Dioskourides to Zenon

(Date of reception: 14th September, 254 BC)

Dioskourides writes that he has received twelve yoke of cattle, as well as the pack donkeys, but that four of the twelve yoke are useless. He then enumerates the eight defective animals and complains that he will be obliged to feed them without being able to use them for the sowing.
