Petition to a praefect

(About A.D. 178)

Draft of an appeal to an unnamed praefect from six persons described as the superintendents of the golden statue of Athene-ThoŽris concerning a case of peculation which he had recently decided. The ends of the lines are lost throughout, but the general sense is seldom obscured. This draft is written accoss the fibres of the verso; the recto contains remains of two columns of a list of persons.
