Introduction

Remains of the end of a letter with the name of the sender on the back. domi]ne bene ualere; then, after a space and in a second hand, ual(e). This abbreviation of uale also occurs in 312.ii.12, 343.iv.45 and 349.margin 1. The first hand is cursively written and the second even more so. Back (on the slant and probably in the first hand): a Ma...lo dec(urione); Masculo is possible, cf. 367.
