Title: Report
Category: Military documents


This fragment is probably intact at the left-hand margin. The text must have been written in short lines and the hand is a crude one; the feet of t and p are noteworthy.

1          There is rather more space than we would expect between m and n in omnes, but despite the loss of the tops of all the letters we are reasonably confident of the reading.

3          It is not certain whether there is the trace of a letter at the right before the tablet breaks off (cf. 127.4 and note). Normally renuntiauit would begin a new line.

4          The traces are too uncertain to offer a reading.
