Greek script written on Papyrus which was later re-used to make Cartonnage for a Mummy from Tebtunis in the Fayum and from the Ptolemaic Period (UC 2149).

The text reads "Agathon to Patron, greeting. You are the one and only person who entirely neglects our pressing commands. For though we have written to you and given you orders concerning the timber, you have paid no heed, but have delayed until Ammonios is annoyed and we have been forced to buy timber to send to him. I have written therefore to you in order that you may realize your own carelessness. Goodbye. The fourth year, Payni 11."
