Loan of money and wheat

(A.D. 89)

The papyrus is incomplete on the left, where 3-4 letters are missing at the beginning, while at the foot, in the last lines, up to 12 letters are lost. The writing is an upright, regular cursive. Caius lends 200 drachmae and 110 artabae of wheat to his brother Heracleides and his wife. The second part of the document sets out the conditions for this loan.
