Translation:
Justus to the dearest Ploution, many greetings. It would be nice if you in Bousiris could buy two linen tunics, coarse, clean (Schmidt: thick) and good, for the amount of up to 40 drachmae, a nice pair of cross-woven cloths from Diospolis, a single bathing towel, a good half-cushon, if you find a bigger one - see to it that you do not forget anything - another cheaper one from Saïs ... Verso: Give to Ploution.
