So, why was this weaver so difficult to find? Ammonianus seems to know that linen-weavers were sparse where Moros lived, so it is possible that the notorious linen-weaver's services were in high-demand. In other words, he may have been difficult to find because he was avoiding further work.

Ammonianos to his dearest Moros, greetings. Bearing in mind what you had written concerning a fine of 4000 drachmas, I was not intending to delay, first in the matter of the ... pitch, second in the matter of the chitons; but the matter of the pitch has been concluded. Do you even now take pains not to neglect to send me the linens. For I knew that it is impossible for you to bother the weaver, whom you suggested to me, who is like "wherever the ravens fly." (Of course), you will say: "there is a lack of weavers."
