Remarks: Description, Publication: Janssen, JEA 52 (1966), 81, note 4, calls the side with fibres V/H "recto"; this is followed by Helck and Kitchen. Actually the text begins on the verso (V/H) of the papyrus. The side with fibres V/H will here be called "verso". The lower left fragment of Janssen's recto is placed one line too high on pl. XVII (cf. transcription pl. XVII A), and consequently one line too low as top right fragment on pl. XIX (cf. transcription pl. XIX A). Dates mentioned: for the dates in verso II 15 and 16, see Janssen, JEA 52 (1966), 86, note ee, and 87, note hh. Names, Titles: in recto II 2 and 7 probably not aA-nxt.w (Janssen), but aA n is.t (R.J. Demarée). PA-pr-anx (verso II 7) toponym, or rather pA pr-anx "the House of Life" (so Janssen, JEA 52 (1966), 86, note u)? Verso III 11: tA rpy.t n As.t "the statue of Isis" (Janssen, JEA 52 (1966), 84 with note aaa).
