. . . you shall put it right within three years, and shall immediately cut down material for the synoecism of the city, and bring it from the forests in Taranza, as Zeuxis determines. We release you from the additional one-twentieth tax for the government, and we have ordained that the gymnasium that you formerly used shall be restored to you; and we have written concerning everything to Zeuxis and Ktesikles. Metrodoros and his associates will report to you concerning these matters. Farewell.   Year 99, 5th day of Xandikos .
