Five lines of a letter, written along the grain but sloping downwards. The writing is complete at left, with a substantial margin, and probably complete at right.

translation

' because you wrote to me that our Priscinus had remained rather inconveniently(?) '

commentary

2. No doubt this is the Priscinus whose correspondence is preserved in 295-298 and 636-638; see also 663. n(ostrum): the abbreviation is indicated by a superscript bar over n (cf. Tab.Vindol.II, p.54) and a medial point following. The reading to the right of this is uncertain and there may have been more than just two letters. We have also considered ịạṃ.
