Remarks: Transcription collated in Turin in May 2000 by B. Haring. Keywords: ref. to clothing in verso II 11? Description: Parts of lines (dates and numbers) on recto in red ink. The position of the beginnings of recto II 5-13 (12 lines) does not correspond with that of the remaining parts of these lines (only 11). There is nothing between the ends of the lines numbered II 10 and 12 (i.e. no number "8", palimpsest or not, at the end of recto II 11). There is some space between the fragments of recto IV 4-10, i.e. after HA.t.y-a (recto IV 4), after Niw.t (recto IV 5), between the untranscribed traces in recto IV 6, after MAa.t (recto IV 7), space for sS (recto IV 9), more space after "1,000" (recto IV 10). Perhaps verso III has only 10 lines (numbered 1-10). Kitchen's lines 11-13 are the same as 8-10; lines 14-18 may in fact belong to column II. Names, Titles: Nfr-xa (recto II 6) proper name? Preceding traces unclear (not sS ).
