For further fragments of blocks from probably a similar period, but with slightly different scripts, see T.249 and T.17. Since the letter group may well come from the end of an imperial title in the genitive plural it probably refers to Valentinian and Valens (AD 364-375); perhaps with Gratian (AD 367-375); see T.249.
