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). Date(s) mentioned: the published transcription is not fully reliable. See Müller, LingAeg 7 (2000), 278, for obv. 2. In rev. 2 rnp.t-sp seems highly improbable without a further date; in rev. 3 read sw 24 instead of sw 25; Müller's sw 14 seems less likely. Date(s) attributed: in view of the style and the names most probably early years of Ramesses IV; belonging to the group O. DeM 0040-0045 (Demaree). Names, Titles: Wsx-nmt.t (obv. ~2# ) read by Müller, LingAeg 7 (2000), 278.
