Vindolanda Inventory No. 85.210

Introduction

A fragment of a tablet containing part of a letter. Though the content is exiguous, the tablet is of some interest because it has writing on both sides of the leaf, almost certainly by the same hand. There is no way of knowing, however, which is front and which back, or whether it was a letter sent to Vindolanda, or a draft written by someone at Vindolanda.
