Vindolanda Inventory No. 87.711


The foot of what must have been the right-hand portion of a diptych containing the conclusion of a letter with an address on the back. The reading of the name is not absolutely certain but it is very probable that the addressee is the prefect Iulius Verecundus. Since the sender uses the term col(lega) of himself he too was probably a praefectus of a unit.
