Tablet 307

description

Inv.no.85.318.a-d. (a) 43 x 29 mm. (b) 17 x 11 mm. (c) 28 x 9 mm.
One substantial fragment of a letter (a), written on both sides of a leaf (cf. 340). There are two smaller fragments, also with writing by the same hand on both sides (b, c) which may fit together. It is not clear how they may relate to (a), but the sloping writing on one side of the smallest fragment suggests that it belongs to the address on the back. There is no clear indication as to which side is the front and which the back of (a); we have designated as the back the text in which there are spaces at the right of the lines of writing, which seems to us slightly to predispose in favour of this. The content is exiguous but what there is suggests a concern with legal matters (cf. perhaps 317, 339).

commentary

a.2. Perhaps some case of piger or impiger. We are confident that g is correctly read; it has a remarkably long tail (as does r in this hand).

a.4. It is not possible to read dọ[mine after exoro.

aBack.2-4. scribti-/ [ o] ṇe seems a plausible restoration; for the spelling cf. 339.4. This would suit the context if the reading accụs/ [ a] ṇtium (in which the first c is re-made) is correct. A noun in the accusative would then follow.

b. If fragment (c) does not fit below, this piece may belong with a.1.
