2which you owe me: I have been paid by you and do not have any
3business with you concerning it because you have given it to me. If anyone
4proceeds against you for it, I am ready to give two tremissis
5to you as a fine and, furthermore, if a security is produced against you,
6(it is) invalid. I, Paeion, agree to this release 1i.e. from the financial obligation.
7I, Petros, the most humble deacon, (because) Paeion asked
8me, I wrote this release and I am witness.
