Inv.no.87.695. 75 x 22 mm.
Part of the left-hand side of a leaf containing the opening of a letter from Oppius Niger to Cerialis. Oppius Niger is the man who, apparently at a later date, sent 295 to Priscinus, but although the hand of the present letter bears considerable resemblance to that of 295, it is probably not the same (e in particular being very different in the two texts). For discussion of the identity of persons with this cognomen in the tablets see the introduction to 295.
