Letter from Theogiton to Apollonius

(Second century A.D.)

This letter was found with the Gemellus papyri, but the persons concerned were not so far as we know members of the family. The letter is a strong remonstrance addressed by a relative or friend to a man who was defrauding his mother of some allowance (choręgia), and threatens prosecution if this conduct was persisted in.
