Correspondence concerning a Strike

(245 (244) BC)

A fragment of a series of official letters concerning a strike of slaves employed in a stone-quarry. Lines 4-11 contain a copy of a letter from Antiochus to Dorion forwarding a letter from Aenesidemus, of which only the beginning is preserved, and ordering the immediate arrest of the offenders. Lines 1-3 are the conclusion of a letter which may be from Dorion to the phylakitai.
