Two fragments of a letter, written on both sides of the leaf in the same hand. There is no way of telling which side was written first. Side A (b) seems to have the ends of a left-hand column and the start of a right-hand, with the two columns not aligned and with only a small gap between them.

commentary

A.a.2-3. E.g. quas [dixit se misis]se tibi. Then, after per, a name?

A.a.5. Perhaps ]nes p̣ụtes. b.

A.b.i.2. ṣi is possible (not nisi).

A.b.ii.2. The reading appears to be fectịc̣is or perhaps fectụis, preceded by or , and followed by a space suggesting a word end. rẹf̣fectị (for refecti) could be read.

A.b.ii.4. Possibly seḍ q̣ụạṃ [. B.

B.b.2. abet for habet; cf. 649.

B.b.3. For the spelling dimissi see Adams (1995a), 89.

B.b.4. si ṃịṇụṣ is possible.
