translation

'... I want him to come to me at Coria and receive ... (Back) To Flavius Cerialis. '

commentary

2. Coris: we are confident that the mark after the word is a deliberate interpunct (also possible after uolo and probable after ueniat in line 1). For Coria as the Roman name for Corbridge see 154.7 note, cf. 175.3, 412. The form here should again probably be regarded as a locative (= Coriis); if the writer had meant from Coria we would expect him to have used a preposition (cf. Tab.Vindol.I, pp.72-3). For the locative place-name in addresses see above, pp.43-5.
