commentary

a.1. The reading appears to be certain. We suggest a personal name, Venetus, followed by scissọ[ri, or scissọ[re, "butcher"; cf. 646.ii.10 note.

a.2. (centurione) is also possible and the symbol may be preceded by a medial dot. No centurion of this name has yet appeared in the tablets.

a.3. It is hard to make sense of a word ending –ceianae; it might be a personal name in the dative. An alternative is that we have a word ending –ce followed by ḷanae.

b.1. The form of s is like that in salutat in 645.19 (see note). The traces are consistent with c̣ọṛạrios (an attested form of coriarius, see TLL IV 951) but there are several other possibilities.
