When Trajan was among [the] Parthians, distant many days' journey from the sea, Apicius the gourmet sent him fresh oysters, preserved by skill.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὄστρεια. Τραιανῷ ἐν Πάρθοις ὄντι καὶ τῆς θαλάσσης ἀπέχοντι ἡμερῶν πολλῶν ὁδὸν Ἀπίκιος ὁ ὀψοφάγος ὄστρεα νεαρὰ διεπέμψατο, ὑπὸ σοφίας τεθησαυρισμένα.
On Marcus Apicius, see alpha 3213, alpha 4660, mu 217, etc.
[1] Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.7D (1.13 Kaibel), which makes it clearer that the 'skill' was Apicius' own.
