Although many scholars debate the levels of literacy in the Ancient world, the Vindolanda tablets do provide evidence of written eloquence in writing, and even more surprisingly, evidence of women writing. This in itself is a testament to Latin notions of literacy where (elite) women were just as capable of literacy as men. Specifically, Vindolanda tablet 291 contains a letter to Silpicia Lepidina from Claudia Severa, wife of Aelius Brocchus, who is sending an invitation to a dinner party for Severa’s birthday. The elegant script is marked by a high level of formality, such as ‘For the day of the celebration of my birthday, I give you a warm invitation to make sure you come to us, to make the day more enjoyable for me’.
