Introduction

Fragment of the right-hand column of a letter. We originally assigned this tentatively to the correspondence of Cerialis, but we now think this less likely. One line survives on both front and back. On the back only the tops of some seven or eight letters in address script remain; the letters at the left could well read Flauio, but what follows does not look like the start of Ceriali. On the front we read ].[.]cum de iniuria. At the left the top of an ascender is preserved, probably s; there is a marked gap before de. After this iniuria is written above the line, even though it could easily have been written in alignment with de. This perhaps suggests a petition (cf. 281, 322, 344).
