Tablet 715

description (a) 36 x 24 mm. (b) 47 x 21 mm.
Archaeological data. Location: SG (bonfire site). Period: 3.
Two substantial fragments and four small scraps. They were all found together and it seems likely that they all belong to the same letter, although it is not quite certain that they are all written in the same hand. This hand is rather inelegant and uses several ligatures. (b) is likely to be from a right-hand column with a trace from the the left-hand column visible opposite line 3. There may be very faint traces of an address on the back.

a.3. If the reading is right (and ịṛ is far from secure), it is most probable that we have another occurrence of a chirographum, for which cf. 640.ii.1, 645.22, 647.5 (cf. 648.ii.5-6 note). We have also considered chịṛụ[, i.e. some case of chirurgus or a related word.

b.3. No doubt supply col]|legae.

b.4. The loop of initial d is very large. At the right not mih[i or mit-.
