Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.111.a

Introduction

This leaf or half-diptych is incomplete at the top and bottom. There may be a notch in the left-hand edge. It should be noted that lines 3-5 begin much further to the left than lines 1-2 and 6. The reading and interpretation of lines 1-2 and 6, where the writing is extremely abraded, is very difficult. The first line, which may refer to the remainder of the account indicates a loan. The account then appears to have date-headings in lines 2 and 6, the second perhaps one month after the first. The notations at the left which may have been added later in a second hand might indicate recovery of the items which were lent out (see note to line 3). The form of u in line 3 (almost a flat dash) is noteworthy, as is that in oua (line 5) which lacks its right-hand side and perhaps is in ligature with a.
