- Curator's comments
- 'The 'residence' is someone's living quarters, but like so much in these texts, only the writer and his contemporaries knew where it was. Despite the reference to a 'medical orderley', this hospitium is unlikely to have been the 'hospital', which was called the valetudinarium. The 'stone burning' means lime-burning for mortar, the clay would be used for wattle-and-daub walls' (Tomlin 2018, 80).
