commentary

a.1. ]viii K(alendas) Februar[ias: less likely is ]xiiii.

b.1. There may be the bottom of a letter before r. We could perhaps read prunolum, a form of the diminutive of prunus, but if correct it would have to be understood as collective (cf. 192.3 note).

b.3. Perhaps ad men[sam/-as.

c.1. At the end of the line emtas makes good sense (cf. 181.3) but it is hardly credible that we have a reference to vines before it.

c.2. The trace preceding the numeral is less likely to be a denarius-symbol. What we have read as the first digit (l) might alternatively be read as p for p(ondo).

d.1. After sub we might alternatively have n which would imply two words here. subti.., if correct, would presumably be an adjective or, again, two words. subpaen[ulas (cf. 196.9, 13) is hardly possible; equally hard is subtun[icas.

e. It is impossible to be sure that this fragment belongs to this account.
