Title: Letter to Genialis
Category: Correspondence of Genialis


A fragment of a leaf containing one line of a letter and, on the back, an address to Flavius Genialis. It is very odd that the address is written upside down in relation to the writing on the front, but so little survives of this letter that we cannot elucidate this.

1          We expect some recognisable part of a closing formula but the traces do not suggest anything familiar.

Back 1          For the division of the cognomen between two lines cf. 213.back; for the use of the apex mark see above, pp.57-61.
