Remarks: Description: Text on side II is literary according to Černý, Notebook 101.45. Keywords/Content(s): the spelling for the word iSd (fruit) employs Gardiner sign A 24 as its determinative, which makes the reading somewhat uncertain. The context of the word does not, however, allow for it to be read as some form of the verb Sd . Publication: a revised transcription of side I 1-5 and side III 1-6 by Černý, Notebook 101.49.
