Translation:
To my lord Dorotheos from Iatrodoros. Know that I pressed Pinoutis (l. Pinouthis) hard for the money, the twelve solidi. He replied back: I owe only six solidi. Having received those, I went to Nesos to buy/to exchange them for thirty solidi. Thanks to God I (shall) meet your nobility whenever you like and bring them. And so that your nobility should have no reason to say that I neglected (the matter), I hurried to let your nobility know about this...the...tarries. I pray for your lasting health. Verso: To my lord Dorotheos, from Iatrodoros
