Remarks: Provenance: O. IFAO 0278 belongs to the series found in January 1930. Date attributed: in view of a note by Černý next to his transcription of O. IFAO 0268 line 5, he seems to have thought on the duty roster for year 32 of Ramesses III, but this king never lived into his regnal year 32, III Ax.t . The other names do not fit into the known duty roster for these years.
