Vindolanda Inventory No. 87.579


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
