Descripta: tablets 354-573

From Alan Bowman and David Thomas, Vindolanda: the Latin writing tablets London: Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, 1983, pp. 344

Under this heading we have described texts which do not merit full editions either because they are too fragmentary or because we have not been able to read or extract sense from the writing which survives. With very few exceptions we have described only those tablets on which we have been able to read something more than isolated letters. It should be added that there are very many fragments on which the photographs show abraded traces of writing or marks which might be writing. We have not thought it worthwhile either to describe these or to include them in our concordance. A full list of all the tablets and the reference numbers of their photographs can be found in VRR II, 109-22.

We have also included the minor texts first published in Tab.Vindol.I, the majority as descripta. We have omitted the stilus tablets.

All texts are written along the grain of the wood unless otherwise noted. The backs of all fragments are blank unless otherwise stated.
