Contents: By an oracle of king Amenhotep I, prior to I pr.t 9, it has been decided that the policeman Imn-xa has to give a donkey or its value to the draughtsman 1r-Mnw . The oracle decides on I pr.t 9 that Imn-xa must pay 9 copper dbn . On the following day, Imn-xa appears before the oracle again and swears to abide by the decision, in the presence of witnesses. The water-carrier PA-wxd swears that he has given a donkey to Imn-xa ; this transfer is testified to by two witnesses.
