We present an edition of P.Mich. inv. 7198. The front contains a Syriac letter; the back was reused for a Greek tax receipt, which can be dated to the 7th-8th century. The document was probably written in a monastery. The Syriac letter is of particular interest, since there are very few Syriac documentary papyri.
