Tablet 685

description

Inv.no.93.1478I. 65 x 43 mm.
Archaeological data. Location: SG (bonfire site). Period: 3.
Four joining fragments, complete at the foot. The text is written along the grain and may be by the same hand as 597 and 599; the use of interpuncts is common to all three and the name Taurinus which occurs in the present text is also found in 599.1 which was inventoried with 685; see also 604.i.1-2 note. It is not entirely certain that 685 is an account; it could be part of the left-hand column of a letter.

commentary

1. Possibly ]c̣ịrca · .[.

2. Perhaps ].. c̣urua, which would make good sense in view of 600.i.4 (see Adams (2003)). In order to read alḷigata we have to ignore an apparent cross-stroke through the second l. Presumably it would mean something like "tied together", cf. alligandum in line 4.

3. i]ạculạ seems the most likely restoration (cf. 164.5 where the hitherto unattested masculine form occurs).

4. For alligandum see line 2 note. After it, either pluṣ or pluṛ[a is possible.
