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 , 78. Date(s) mentioned: at the end of obv. 1 read IV Ax.t instead of III Ax.t as in the published transcription (S. Allam, WdO 30 (1999), 143). Date(s) attributed: in view of the script and the names of the two scribes, certainly end dyn. 19 (Demaree).
