APIS Translation (English)

To Claudius Apion, former agoranomos of Alexandria, through his overseer, Philodespotos, Heron son of Hermas, herdsman of the village of Theadelphia. I acknowledge that I have contracted to transport dung and sebekh (?) for the vineyard belonging to your sons (located) in the vicinity of the village, known as the property of Spartianus, commencing the coming 16th year of Hadrian Caesar the lord, on condition that I shall receive from you for freight charges the sum of 8 obols per donkey per 6 trips to convey dung and likewise the sum of 8 obols per donkey per 8 trips to convey sebekh (?). And if I should fail to provide the transportation of dung, I will pay you the freight charges twofold. But if you cause me to be without work, I shall receive the freight charges because we agreed on reasonable terms (?). Heron, about 50 years of age, having a scar on his forehead. Year 15 of Emperor Caesar Trajan Hadrian Augustus, Pachon 15.
