commentary

1. The end of line 1 clearly has the name of the addressee: perhaps C]ạẹc̣o (but an alternative possibility is ]ạf̣ịo).

2. suo must have been written on line 2 unless this line considerably overran the fold.

3-4. May have contained a reference to the despatch of cavalrymen to Vindolanda, but there are clearly numerous other possibilities.

5-7. Of lines 5-7 only odd letters can be read.
