V (F XIII, 46)
TO APPULEIUS (IN ASIA)Lucius Nostius Zoilus is a co-heir with me, and besides that the heir of his patron. I state these two facts both to shew you that I have reason to be his friend, and to convince you that he must be an honest man to have received such a compliment from his patron. I therefore recommend him to you as though he were a member of my house-hold. I shall be very grateful if you will take pains to make him understand that my recommendation has been of great service to him with you.
