1Asklepiades to Philon, the bailiff for the judges in the Panopolite nome and the allotted
2places, greetings. You have written to us, to take the copy of a petition to the king submitted
3by Isias, to give it to the acccused Esoroeris and Tagos, and summon them
4to be present at court in five days with the
5legal documents related to the proceedings. And how we managed the summonses,
6to Tagos in person, but to Esoroeris, being away from home, through the phylakites Eponychos, would be too long
7to report.
