Tablet 306

description

Inv.no.85.067. 63 x 55 mm.
A fragment of a leaf containing part of the right-hand side of a letter with traces of address script on the back. Since we have neither the left- nor the right-hand edge intact it is impossible to establish the line length. The first hand writes a nice, right-sloping cursive.

commentary

1. iuga might suggest a reference to yoked animals.

2. There might be a letter or, more likely, an interpunct after nis.

3. At the right ṇọsṭṛaẹ might be read.

4. The message might end with ṭịḅị.

5-6. The writer appears to have left spaces at the left, aligning these lines with the beginning of his closure part-way through line 4, cf. 255.ii.15-7, 264.3-5. carisṣime: for c rather rather than k see 299.ii.1 and cf. the note on CEL 139, ad loc.

7-8. There are traces of two more lines of which we can make nothing coherent. For an addition after the closure see 248.ii.14.
