Vindolanda Inventory No. 178

Introduction

This scrap contains, on one side, the beginning of what is probably a letter to Cerialis and, on the other, the remains of three lines of which the last two are written upside down in relation to the front. The first line may be the remains of an address script and this suggests that the two following lines may be part of a different text, perhaps a draft, on the back of a discarded letter, written over the top and upside down. The two texts thus may well not be connected. The hand of the Cerialis text bears some resemblance to that of 233, which also has a second, apparently unconnected text.
