Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.035


A fragment of the right-hand portion of a letter containing the end of the message proper and a closing greeting. The surviving text gives little clue to the content; it is possible that the sender is asking for instructions on how to reach the recipient. The possible attribution to the correspondence of Cerialis depends on the reading of line 3 (see note).
