P.Herm. 15: fragmentary letter.
The letter is addressed to one's "Lord father" and concerns arrangement made with regard to wine and a donkey needing a veterinary surgeon for his foot. Beginning and end of the letter are missing. The first line (Θ(ε)ῷ) might be the end of Christian greetings "in God".
The editor notes that "The neat hand and atrocious spelling form an odd contrast".
Recto: upright hand, slightly ornamental. Use of nomen sacrum. Text written across the fibres. Verso: (according to the editor) few traces, illegible, maybe of a word in the address.
