Inv.no.86.507. 90 x 21 mm. Plate XXVII.
Two joining fragments from the top of the left-hand portion of a diptych containing the opening of a letter to a person called Fadus. There is a tiny scrap with traces of a few letters which we cannot place; it might supply part of the name of the sender. Only the first line of the message survives and, rather surprisingly, it seems to express the wish that something might turn out badly for the recipient. The hand is a reasonably competent but not very elegant cursive.
'... to his Fadus, greetings. It is my wish that it might turn out badly for you .... '
