1Translation by J.H.F. Dijkstra (ZPE 216, p.248)
1χμγ, amen.
2I, Eusebios, the son of Barouche, the man from Aswan who lives in the place of Athanase in the nome of Kos (Diokletianopolis), am writing
3to Patermoute, the son of Mena. About the matter of the acknowledgement of debt which Iakob owes
4me, look you have come and owed me and you have acknowledged your share, namely half, of this acknowledgement of debt.
5Since you have written a document of security for me as we agreed with each other,
6and if Ioannes comes and agrees with me, I will hand over to you (pl.) your acknowledgement of debt, that you may tear it.
7I, Eusebios, the son of Barouche, acknowledge this guarantee, as it is written. I, Danos,
8his son, wrote it for him, for he does not know (how) to write and he has entrusted me and I agree.
9Written on 18 Hathyr (14/15 November), with God, of the 3rd indiction.
