Letter from Antipatros to Zenon

(14th June, 242 B.C.)

Antipatros requests Zenon to get the letter from Sostratos about the garden, in order that he may come to terms and have money for harvesting the poppy crop. He had not been able previously to come to terms with Menelaos' people owing to his sudden departure. The business about which he went down to Alexandria is proceeding favourably, though he was not able to bring it to a conclusion as Zenodoros had no time to attend to him. He feels sure, however, that it will be settled in Memphis.
