Vindolanda Inventory No. 88.947

Introduction

               A diptych containing an account written in two columns along the grain. On the back of each half of the leaf are a few lines written by the same hand which probably belong to the same account. The text, which is virtually complete, records cash sums, in most cases for specified goods, notable among which is a horse (ii.12); these could well be sums still owed by individuals for the goods, those deleted with horizontal lines representing debts repaid. Since this text is attributed to Period 4 it presumably reflects a level below that of the officer class and may be a compilation by a civilian trader doing business with soldiers or a mixture of soldiers and civilians (see 180, introduction, 184, introduction).

               The hand is a respectable cursive which uses an idiosyncratic form of o, open at the right and therefore looking more like c.
