Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.318.a-d

Introduction

One substantial fragment of a letter (a), written on both sides of a leaf (cf. 340). There are two smaller fragments, also with writing by the same hand on both sides (b, c) which may fit together. It is not clear how they may relate to (a), but the sloping writing on one side of the smallest fragment suggests that it belongs to the address on the back. There is no clear indication as to which side is the front and which the back of (a); we have designated as the back the text in which there are spaces at the right of the lines of writing, which seems to us slightly to predispose in favour of this. The content is exiguous but what there is suggests a concern with legal matters (cf. perhaps 317, 339).
