Title: Letter
Category: Descripta


Three joining fragments which contain the remains of three lines, presumably from the right-hand side of a letter since what survives on the back looks like part of an address. The writing has for the most part faded completely and only a few letters survive at the left; lines 2-3: ]sho traces / ]eris (less likely is ual]eas .[). The back may well be in address script. Part of one line survives:.essi..[; we can only read Cessio if we suppose that o is represented by a mere dot; if this is right, the cognomen after this may begin Fin[.
