Petition to Zenon from Harmais and Teos

(251 - 250 B.C.)

The petitioners were two Egyptian brick-makers. They had been ordered by Zenon to work for four months, but had been kept working by Horos, Zenon's foreman, for a whole year extra and had been shamefully sweated. They ask Zenon to inquire into their case and bring Horos to account.
