"...Aurelius Severus, millstone-cutter by trade ... I acknowledge through this my written assurance that I am ready to work ... for the period of my lifetime on all the milling strobili and calathi that are in every location of your estate, both in the bakery and on all the farmsteads and in the oil factories of your excellency"

A specialist stoneworker enters into a lifetime contract with Flavius Apion II, of the wealthy Apion family of landowners. For strobili and calathi in use, see 3640.
