Contents: Necropolis journal covering the period from II pr.t 24 until II Ax.t 2 of regnal year 3 (of Ramesses X); the entries record work at the royal tomb, inactivity of the gang, deliveries of temple cakes, charcoal, firewood, fish, plaster, pottery and sandals, distribution of grain rations, collecting tools. Inactivity is due to the presence of "foreigners" ( xAs.t.y.w ), and the delay of food supplies. Specific events: a matter between the mayor PA-wr-aA and the high priest of Amun (recto I 1/recto II 1); arrival of the high priest and the scribe (of the vizier) (recto I 16-17); the transport of grain to "the temple" (recto I 18); the doorkeepers are sent to Thebes in order to fetch grain rations (recto II 11); the bringing of a letter from the high priest by the policeman Ns-Imn (the high priest urges the workmen to go to work, but the policeman tells them not to do so; recto II 15-17); the policeman is summoned because of this matter by the necropolis scribe 2a-m-Hd.t and the scribe Pn-tA-Hw.t-nxt (recto II 21); working at the tomb of aA-pA-TAw (recto III 1); the mayor PA-wr-aA brings a letter from the vizier (recto III 7); the workmen are brought "down" because of a matter of the smd.t (recto III 14-15); the scribes of the vizier are told that no necropolis personnel is put at their disposal; two workmen say that the vizier has taken some garments and wood belonging to King Ramesses IX (recto III 16-18); the gang are in Thebes in front of "the officials" and the high priest, who does not give them rations; rations are demanded from the scribe of the vizier; the gang are given rations from the temple of Montu(?) (recto III 23 - IV 2, cf. also V 20-21, VI 2-3); two fanbearers are given wooden chests and scrib al equipment(?) ( r-a ?) (recto IV 3-4, cf. V 6-7); work in the tomb of scribe Pn-tA-Hw.t-nxt (recto IV 6-7); a special delivery of gold, silver, textile, oil and vegetables (recto IV 8-11); searching for grain rations (recto VI 1, VII 21-22, 24-25). Verso dockets: various deliveries dated to regnal years 3 (of Ramesses X) and 1 (of Ramesses XI?). The older text on the recto includes the description of a statue (see Remarks).
