Title: Letter from September (?) to Cerialis
Category: Correspondence of Cerialis


The beginning of a letter addressed to Cerialis, perhaps from September (see note to line 1). The hand is probably not the same as that of 252.


n 1 ]mber Ceriali suo
3 salutem
. . . . .



1          The traces before Ceriali are very faint but suit the proposed reading well. If it is correct, the letter is probably from Caecilius September (cf. 252, introduction), although September is, of course, not the only name with this termination (cf. 258.back 8 note).
