Remarks: Transcription collated in Turin on 3 and 4 May 2000 by B. Haring. Description: verso II has only 6 lines (Kitchen's vs. II 2 and II 3 are one and the same), but the numbering of lines as edited has been maintained here. Terminology: note short writing of smHy as observed in recto I 18 and 21 by Kitchen, Ramesside Inscriptions VI, 646; same writing in recto II 10 (red). Names, Titles: for the writing of mnH in recto II 11 see Janssen, Village Varia , 20 note 41. Probably read in pA sS n tmA at the end of recto II 9 (Haring, in: Deir el-Medina in the Third Millennium AD , 147, note 103).
