Letter from Hermias to Zenon


Hermias writes that his brother has come to summon him to Memphis. A certain Agathokles was there, preparing to sail up the river, and it seems that this man was claiming some money from Hermias. He asks Zenon therefore to write to Agathokles to be generous and send him back quickly. If only he knew how he stood, he would like to send for his mother and little brother to come and join him.
