P.Oxy. XLVIII 3403

Letter from Maria to Papnuthis

ed. John C. Shelton

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

"A rather whiny letter to Papnuthis from his mother, complaining of neglect and asking for money. The hand is crabbed and difficult to decipher." — JCS

"...You have again been persisting in your neglect and have sent me no word concerning the matters I instructed you about. Therefore please send me the money. Your wife too says herself that you should send her money ... I pray for your health for many years."
