Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.194.a


Two joining fragments containing the beginning of a draft or copy of a letter from Flavius Cerialis to a person only traces of whose name survive. It is probably written by the same hand as 234, however, and may also be to September (see note to line 1). The back of the smaller fragment has traces of writing, apparently including m with a superscript dash (= m(odius)), which may suggest that this side was used for an account before or after the copy of the letter was written (cf. 233, 299). The writer appears to have used an apex over a in Flauius. There are three small scraps which probably do not belong with this text (see 402).
