This paper will explore a Latin curse tablet against the legatus Rufus and his men. Although the tablet comes from an unknown archaeological context, palaeographical and prosopographical analysis suggests a possible origin for the piece in Hispania Citerior. Comparing our curse tablet with three other curses aimed against the same legatus (Q. Pomponius Rufus cos. suff. 95 AD) also forces us to ask about his actions during his time in Hispania Citerior.   University Hall 448 Department of Classics classics@osu.edu America/New_York public
