Memorandum to Zenon from Alkimos


Alkimos asks Zenon to return the slaves according to their agreement, as he had now begun work. Zenon must decide how much should be given as clothing allowance, having regard to his circumstances. If Zenon refuses his requests, it will do more harm to himself than to Alkimos, who ought not to be obliged to bring in hired labourers while Theon is working without having any wages to pay.
