It is not certain that the marks at the edge of the leaf are ink.
missi: see the references given in 255.i.6-8 note.
equitem: only the
tops of the first two letters survive. e is not difficult,
though f is possible; q is very difficult
indeed and virtually nothing survives except the top of a vertical, meeting the
cross-bar of the previous letter. We have considered fuissem as an
alternative, but while the rest of the letters are possible u is
impossible. If equitem is
correct, one can imagine, e.g., [noun] tibi missi
per [N] / equitem ex turma [N] or tibi missi N / equitem ex turma
[N] (though the second name would have to be short); but this does
not take account of the difficulty of articulating the word or words in line 4.
goresset: there is
a space between o and r which suggests a
division between words, and the penultimate letter might be i (e.g. si
ergo res sit ...); if it is gor esset we must
have a noun-ending, e.g. fulgor.
The c has apparently been corrected, perhaps from f.
