Tablet 327

description

Inv.no.85.028. 88 x 32 mm.
A fragment of a leaf containing three lines of a letter. It is not clear whether it belongs to the left- or right-hand portion of a diptych. The text mentions aes minutum ("small change") and it is possible to imagine that the sender is informing the recipient that he has despatched someone carrying the money; cf. 323.3 for a reference to the coins called uictoriati. For the function of coinage in this respect see Howgego (1992).

translation

'... and they are bringing (?) it with them in small change because ... '

commentary

1. aḍf̣ẹrunṭ fits the traces reasonably well and makes good sense here (cf. 281.i.1 note and 3).

2-3. For aes minutum see TLL I 1075.25.
