Tamsi, Eparch of Lower Nobadia, to Mashshouda, Elder (?). It is the Eparch’s statement: keep the new grain and sell 37 (artabs) of his old (grain). And as for the 12 artabs of grain, after he has had them cleaned for you, if you can sell them for gold or at face-value (?), keep them apart, and when he is near (?) to selling (them), tell him to sell through my Gis (?).
