P.Vindob.Worp 2

To the royal scibe Herakleides from Phanias, son of Sarapion, member of the catoecic cavalry and tenant of public land. In the present month Hathyr of the 10th year of Augustus the slave Hilarion has driven the sheep which he has in possession onto royal land which I cultivate, situated at Takona in the cleros of Kraton and at Tholthis in the cleroi of Spokes and Moschion. He allowed the land to be grazed upon and trampled down althought it was in a state of being (about to be?) sown with wheat, and he also allowed to tbe trampled down land which I have some with [arakos].

 

PW 77

[In order that . . . he will be] duly [forced] to pay the land taxes and the compulsory assignment (epibole)[with all speed], 5 artabs of wheet for ever arura of the cleros of Kraton and 5 artabs of wheat for ever arura situated at Tholthis, and also to be the arakos and the wages for sowing and the damage I have suffered or shall suffer because of the land, I entreat you, if it is appropriate, to take precautions that the petititon be registred, so that Hilarion knows that the taxes are his, as is written above, and damage and expenditures are recovered for me so that nothing of the taxes is lost.

Farewell.
