Tablet 335

description

Inv.no.86.352. 68 x 24 mm.
Two joining fragments from what appears to be the end of a letter, perhaps to a woman (see note to line 4). We should therefore expect to see something of an address on the back, but nothing is visible. The writing on the right-hand fragment has mostly disappeared and no connected sense can be obtained. Word division is good.

commentary

1. craṣ is possible.

2-3. Presumably adị [ u-] /torio (cf. P.Brooklyn 24.iii.5, Thomas and Davies (1977)), probably not preceded by cum.

4. It is not clear whether this greeting is in a different hand, which is what we should expect. The last visible letter is either d or o; the former suggests ualeạṣ ḍ[omine, but the traces perhaps suit ualeạṣ ṣọ[ror better.
