Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.281


A fragment containing the opening of a letter almost certainly from Flavius Similis (cf. 235, 286, 347) to Cerialis. The left-hand edge may have the remains of a v-shaped notch. There is a smaller fragment of the same tablet with abraded traces which we cannot join to the main piece.
