Appointment of a workman on Trajan's river

(A.D. 322)

A return addressed by the comarchs of two villages to an interesting collocation of officials who had taken the place of the strategus and basilicogrammateus. At the end only the date giving the month and the signatures are missing. The workman nominated was required for repairs of Trajan's river, which connected Babylon with the gulf of Suez.
