Contents: Deposition by the workman PA-Ra-Htp about the things he has given to the water-carrier Knr , who was to bring them to one PA-HA.t.y-a . Instead, Knr took these things, as well as some items subsequently entrusted to him. Despite Knr 's promise to pay for some of the items, and the decision made by the oracle of Amenhotep in favour of PA-Ra-Htp , the latter has apparently not received anything. See Remarks.
