Tablet 251

description 81 x 15 mm.
A fragment containing the opening of a letter from Claudius Karus to Cerialis. It is very likely that Claudius Karus is to be identified with the writer of 250, a letter of recommendation to Cerialis. Karus was presumably a prefect of another unit but cannot be further identified (see 250, introduction). The hand of the present text is a very much better one than that of 250. It is notable that it uses two distinct forms of l, the first angular, the second with hooks at top and bottom.



1. Despite the faintness of the last two letters of Karus, there is no doubt about the reading.
