Claudia Severa to her Lepidina greetings,
On 11 September, sister, for the day of the celebration of my birthday,
I give you a warm invitation to make sure that you come to us,
to make the day more enjoyable for me by your arrival, if you are present.
Give my greetings to your Cerialis. My Aelius and my little son send him their greetings.
sperabo te soror
I shall expect you, sister.
vale soror anima
mea ita valeam
my dearest soul,
karissima et have
as I hope to prosper, and hail.
-from Claudia to Lepidina circa 100AD at Vindolanda (Roman Britain).
