Merkê (?), domestikos of Faras through Merki the priest.

I pay homage to your glorious brotherhood, blessed by God. I inform you. I did not neglect anything that you sent. And if Chael’s son comes at my behest, I will {not} go forth saying, “I do not come fearing you, and when they___ the ___, we will receive (it) in your house.” Also if you sent it, I will take it. And to the three who will come, at once give greetings.
