Ammonios to the most honourable Dioskoros greeting. Heras, the one who brings you the letter, is a farmers' scribe in Ska[ndips] and he has an apology to give for the delivered report. I ask [you to accompany] him to Markos so that [he can take care of] him until I come, since I [care] about him. Think of the goodwill [I shall have] towards you because of [your disposition. [I hope you are well.]
