Inv.no.93.1329. 61 x 48 mm. Plate 12.
Archaeological data. Location: SG (rapart edge). Period: ?.
Two joining fragments containing the foot of the right-hand side of a letter from Brocchus to, presumably, Cerialis, with part of the address on the back. 625 may preserve the start; see the introduction to 625. There is a third, tiny fragment (not transcribed) with writing on both sides, which may not belong. It is noteworthy that the name of the sender on the back is not written on a slant as is usually the case in Vindolanda letters.
The second hand is the same as the second hand found in 247 (= Tab.Vindol.I 25) and 288; note in particular n in the form of modern n, and the last stroke of m which is written horizontally in order to ligature with the letter following; see also 622. We are now confident that this is Brocchus' hand and that all three are letters from Brocchus to Cerialis.
