Letter from Spondates to Zenon

(8th July, 251 B.C.)

Zenon had written to Spondates to send some sycamore wood to Kersat, and the latter promises to do so. Palous was said to have reported that there was no acanthus wood; but in fact the muleteers had carried some from Mea on the 15th and he himself had borrowed a cart and taken some more on the 16th. What was really needed was more sycamore wood, and Spondates asks Zenon to send Theopompos to buy from the ibis-feeders from Mea, so that the boat-builders may have no excuse for making trouble.
