Rogatus's Letter is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Salvius Farm is a small farm that includes a windmill just outside of Markarth. Rogatus Salvius can be found outside working in his garden. After speaking to him, he will inform the Dragonborn of his strained relationship with his son, Leontius Salvius. He asks them to deliver a personal letter to Leontius at Old Hroldan Inn.

Old Hroldan Inn can be found east of Markarth; it is near a bunch of Forsworn encampments, and can be a dangerous journey if coming directly from Markarth at a low level. Leontius Salvius usually can be found chopping wood or walking around outside during daylight. When night approaches, he can be found inside the Inn. They are rewarded with 25 septims for completing the quest.

  • Objective 10: Deliver Rogatus's letter to Leonitus [sic] [Do not change this to Leontius. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.]
  • Quest complete


  • After conversing with Leontius, the letter may become stuck in your inventory marked as a quest item. If Leontius is killed, the letter will then remove its quest status, now allowing you to remove it from your inventory. Trying to pickpocket the letter onto Leontius while he is still alive will be unsuccessful.
  • In the letter, Leonitus is spelled incorrectly, as it should be Leontius. This is an unintentional spelling mistake by Bethesda.
