Conianus: we could perhaps read Coniarius but it is less attractive. The form of c, with a diagonal stroke at the bottom, is unusual. The cognomen Conianus is unattested but note the rare gentilicium Conius, attested in Spain, Dalmatia and Sardinia (?) (NPEL); there is also a gentilicium (?) Coriarius, AE 1978.123 (Puteoli), but that might be a misreading. This name does not appear elsewhere in the Vindolanda tablets.
