A notary's register of contracts

(AD 139-140)

Small, gracefully executed uncial script, written along the fibres. Only five fragments remain from what was once a long roll. The preserved text contains parts of twenty-one excerpts of contracts, most being lease contracts, but there are also a few contracts of service.
