Letter concerning an abduction

(Early 6th century)

After an interesting introduction in which the writer hints disapproval of his correspondent's epistolary methods, his main topic is a case of abduction, the victim of which was a certain Macaria. Apparently the case was to be the subject of legal proceedings.
