Title: Report
Category: Military documents


One of two reports, in different hands, submitted by an optio named Candidus (see 146). Given the commonness of the name it is not safe to assume identity since the name of the century to which the Candidus of 146 belonged is lost.

n 1 uacat
n 2 renuntiauit Candidus optio
3 [ce]nturiae Crescentis



1          renuntiauit has a very tall e, and the initial o of optio is also large

2          ce]nturiae: the traces at the beginning of the line are difficult but compatible with the reading. There is no other certain example in which the word is written out in full (but see 316.6 note and 242.i.3 note).
