in view of the centurial sign, which is certain, we must have a name preceding
and the termination seems secure. The reading of t is not easy; the alternative is n but we have not been able to find a suitable name with this
ending. The beginning of the name is obscured by dirt but there does not seem
to be room for Adiutori (cf. 199.2, 214.1)
or another name of similar length. Perhaps Tutori.
ferri p(ondo): there appears
to be too much ink simply for p
and it would be possible to imagine (denarii) clxxxx[; but it
seems very unlikely that such a large sum would`be involved (cf. 182.ii.15
where the amount for ferrum is less than 5 denarii).
The name Candidus occurs in several texts from different periods (see 181.2
note) but the name is so common
that it is pointless to hazard identifications.
porco[s: cf. 180.27.
.u.ae uector[i: the name appears to begin with a large l and we could read Lucae; for the name Luca (gender
uncertain) see RIB I 867; NPEL also cites Luca... (in
Gallia Belgica) and Lucas. For uectura at Vindolanda cf. VRR
The surviving letters are faint and abraded. We might have a name in the
genitive, preceded by ratio in the lost portion, cf. 192.back,
