P.Nag Hamm. 75: Letter to Sansnos.
Top portion of a letter written by a certain Besarion to "[his] lord father Sansnos" including instructions that an adelphos be given five artabas of wheat.
Recto written along the fibres; Verso blank.
Sansnos is very likely to be the same person as the priest in PNH 77-78, the monk in PNH 72 or the "beloved father" in PNH 68, see M. Choat (Choat and Giorda 2017: 35-36); about the letters addressed to him, see also Bagnall 2018: 80-85.
