Remarks: Provenance: note that many of the Strasbourg ostraca were excavated by J.E. Quibell in the Ramesseum in 1895-1896 and given to the Bibliothèque Nationale et Universitaire by W.M. Flinders Petrie in 1918 (Koenig, Ostraca Strasbourg , 1; Spiegelberg, ZÄS 58 (1923), 25, note 4). Publication: see also Helck, Die datierten und datierbaren Ostraka , 301, 302 and 306. Dates mentioned: read "epagomenal days" in rev. 2. Hence the number beneath the day sign is 5, not 7; cf. editor and Müller, LingAeg 7 (2000), 276.
