Correspondence of Lucius: tablets 299-300

From Alan Bowman and David Thomas, Vindolanda: the Latin writing tablets London: Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, 1983, pp. 272

The two letters addressed to Lucius are assigned to different periods (3 and 5 respectively), but we are tempted to refer them to the same individual, who might have been at Vindolanda for a period of several years, or on more than one posting. One of the letters gives him the title of decurio (299); the subject-matter of the other, the despatch of two cavalrymen, would be appropriate to a decurion (300). Note also 180.28.
