Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.094.a


Part of a leaf, complete at the top and left margin, containing an account of foodstuffs written along the grain. This may simply be a shopping-list or "menu" for a single meal and should perhaps be related to the domestic organisation of the praetorium (284, with which it was found, might well be a letter to Flavius Cerialis).
