Letter from Philikrates to Zenon

(? )

Philokrates writes that he has sent the oil-seller Pais (or (?) Patis) to receive something about which Hermolaos the oikonomos had already spoken to Zenon. Philokrates would have come himself, but he is busy; and he asks Zenon to write to him, if ever he wants anything, and not to forget him. Below is a draft of Zenon's answer, saying that Patis has not turned up, but is reported to have gone to Krokodilopolis.
