34. To Theodora?[1][edit]

[362]

I have received from you who are wisdom itself your letter telling me of the fair and blessed promises and gifts of the gods to us. First I acknowledged the great gratitude that I owed to the heavenly gods, and in the second place I rendered thanks to your generosity of soul, in that you are zealous, no one more so, in entreating the gods on my behalf, and moreover you lose no time but inform me without delay of the blessings that have been revealed where you are.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. This unaddressed letter must have been written to a priestess, who was almost certainly Theodora.
