Order for payment of wine

(A.D. 503)

Order from John, a comes, to his butler Phoebammon to make certain payments of wine to various individuals. The amounts are given in dipla, sc. keramia, and among the recipients are the inhabitants of two villages or hamlets, Sepho and Kesmouchis, who had brought cakes(?), a carpenter, a stationarius or policeman, fishermen, the porter of a monastery or church of St. John, and guards who protected estates on the further bank (probably of the Bahr Yusuf).
