Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.048.b


The end of a letter to Cerialis which transmits a greeting to Lepidina. Compare 247 which may be from Brocchus. The present letter may also be from Brocchus, but the hand cannot securely be identified with any of those which occur in his correspondence and it is likely that other correspondents of Cerialis will have sent greetings to Lepidina. It is noteworthy that, in relation to the grain of the wood, the writing slopes markedly down to the right. There is an interesting ligature of u and a in line 3 (cf. above, p.52).
