Letter from Thrasymedes to Zenon

(20th December, 254 B.C.)

Thrasymedes reports that Etearchos having arrived on the 7th of Phaophi, a receipt had been written to Python for the 100 artabs of sesame which Zenon had measured out in the preceding year, as well as for the 105 artabs of knekos measured out on the 10th of last Epeiph. As for the poppy seed, if a note of the amount be given to him, he will write a receipt to Philiskos, together with one for the 300 artabs of sesame, if Zenon will instruct him, in order that the sesame may be sent to the factory to be utilized.
