Letter from Nikolaos to Zenon


Nikolaos asks for a loan of 14 drachmae in addition to the 10 drachmae already received, in order that he may clothe himself decently for his journey down the river. He offers him a written bond that he will repay the money within sixty days of his return, and he promises to work for him with threefold zeal. He adds that if he had been able to procure the money from anyone in his own village, he would not have troubled Zenon.
