translation

' ... I wished to make it known (?). I pray, my lord and brother, that you are enjoying good health. (Back) To Flavius Cerialis (?) ... '

commentary

Front.1. The word division could come before or after a. After s we cannot rule out t or p (cf. the name Asper in 224.1).

Front.2. Before suos the most attractive reading is per, but prop]ter or in]ter is possible.

Back. The reading is plausible, but far from certain.
