Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.046+85.047


Two joining fragments of the left-hand portion of a diptych containing the opening of a letter from Flavius Conianus to Priscinus. It is the very clear and distinctive p at the beginning and c in the middle of the name of the addressee on which we base our view that the name of the person with whom this small group of letters is associated is Priscinus rather than Crispinus (contrast Tab.Vindol.I 30-33).
