Petition concerning forty drachmae

(A.D. 44)

The part of the papyrus which is mutilated deprives us of the circumstances in which Bassus was to repay to Harpocration the value of two doors and forty drachmae of silver. What still remains is an account of his various attempts to recover his property, which were futile, and therefore he is sending a petition to the strategus.
