Vindolanda Inventory No. 88.966


A fragment of a leaf containing remains of four lines. There may be remains of notches in the left-hand edge, in which case the fragment will belong to the left-hand part of a diptych. This is supported by the fact that the ends of the lines seem to overrun the edge of the leaf. The content suggests a petition or appeal, perhaps directed to the prefect since it is attributed to the Period 3 praetorium, about the theft of a balteus (cf. 344). Word-division is good. The form of a in balteum (line 3) is interesting.
