1Senyris to Mathalis, her son, greeting.
2First of all I pray and make supplication for you
3before all the gods in this place. When Agathos comes to you,
4give to him the furniture(?) and the beds and give to his
5son Hylas - may he be free from harm - the jar of wine from down there
6into the cellar. I greet your wife
7and your children. I greet Gemella and her
8husband and her mother. When
9Apollonios comes, and Apolonia, entertain them.
10Apollonios, in fact, travels to Hermoupolis and to
11Latopolis. Sokratos greets you.
12I wish you Farewell.
13Give (the letter) to Matalis in Syene, from Senyris.
