Inv.no.93.1308. 88 x 18 mm. Plate 22.
Archaeological data. Location: SG/NE (intervallum road). Period: 3.
Part of the right-hand column of a letter containing the last few words of the letter proper and the closing greeting. Part of the address survives on the back, but neither the name of the addressee nor that of the sender can be recovered.
The whole of the front is probably in the same hand, which is written more rapidly and with many more ligatures than is usual in the Vindolanda material, sometimes leading to distortion of the letter-forms. Some examples of i are exceptionally long and others have a pronounced serif; u in ualeas is no more than a shallow curve ligatured to the following letter.
tibi opụṣ fuerit scribe mihi ụṭ n
eg̣ọ tibi mịṭtam op̣ṭọ ḅene ualeaṣ n
