Vindolanda Inventory No. 87.602.a


A fragment from the top left-hand corner of a leaf containing a list perhaps comparable to 195 and 196; on the hand see 194 introduction. The large blank space at the top is noteworthy. The first two lines of the list are concerned with footwear rather than textile or household and culinary utensils. On Roman leatherware and footwear see van Driel-Murray (1985) and (1987) and on the finds at Vindolanda, R.E.Birley (1977), 125-6, VRR III, 1-75, esp. 31-47.
