Abstract:
Excavations in 1981-84 and 1990 discovered tablets written in ink on wooden leaves instead of papyrus, in the southern limits of the Roman fort. This collection is thought to be second only to that from Vindolanda, and contains unique evidence for the consumption of barley, wheat, and weapons by a cavalry regiment, and the name of the (probable) regiment concerned, ala Gallorum Sebosiana. There is also an allusion to the province's best-known governor, Gnaeus Iulius Agricola. The whole collection (of some fifty examples) is published with commentary and a suggested citation style.
