Petition to a strategus

(A.D. 299)

The petition represents a stage in some legal proceedings taken by Aurelius Plutarchus in consequence of his nomination for the office of decemprimus, from which, he maintains, his rank exempted him. The rationalis ordered documentary evidence to be produced and notice to be given to the official responsible for the appointment. Plutarchus accordingly now forwards a copy of the official report of his preliminary bearing to the strategus, with the request that the necessary notification should be made.
