TVI Publication No. 3

Vindolanda Inventory No. 82i

Introduction

A leaf with writing on both sides, perhaps a document recording the activities of workmen. The order of the text is uncertain and our designation of the sides as A and B is therefore arbitrary. The text appears to record names in the nominative, followed by a trade and the century to which they belong, then adding the work on which they are engaged. This has been discussed by Bishop (1985) in connection with the manufacture of weapons and military equipment; note the archaeological evidence for the manufacture or repair of metal objects at Vindolanda (see VRR I). There is occasional use of interpunct.
