Memorandum to Zenon from Alexandros and Ismaelos


A complaint from two farmers, whose names proclaim them to be Jews, that some land which they were cultivating on contract had gone dry through Zenon's failure to provide what was specified in the contract. As they had no crop last year and the land had suffered, they ask for an immediate loan to enable them to carry on.
