P.Oxy. XLVIII 3430

Letter from Didymus to Theodotus

ed. J. C. Shelton?

EES: Papyrology Room, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Didymus complains that Apion has let a vineyard fall into disrepair, and asks Theodotus to take the matter in hand. If his instruction to have Apion tortured is meant seriously, both Didymus and Theodotus must have official powers of some sort.

If so, Didymus is keen to use them: he also asks Theodotus to torture one Hermias, who owes him some jars.
