commentary

a. The fragment appears to come from the top right-hand corner, whereas we should of course expect it to be from the top of the left-hand corner. For the name of the place to which a letter is to be delivered written in capitals see 645.back.

b. Written on a slant and so no doubt the name of the sender. In 261 a Hostilius Flauianus writes to Cerialis; the slight trace of the first surviving letter would permit Fla]ụiano (neither Aemi]liano, the sender of 640, nor Vale]riano, the possible recipient of 697, looks feasible).
