Title: Letter from Cerialis
Category: Correspondence of Cerialis


A fragment of the left-hand side of a diptych containing the beginning of a draft or copy of a letter from Flavius Cerialis. The hand could well be the same as that which wrote 235 and perhaps 233. The spacing suggests that the traces below the name probably belong to the first line of the body of the letter.


n 1 Flauius Cer[ialis
2 [ salutem
3 ].[.].[
. . . . . . .



1          The traces below Flauius Cer[ialis are compatible with s[a]l[utem but their position on the line is much too far to the left for this to be possible.
