Description: Botti and Peet ( Il giornale della necropoli di Tebe , 9, 15, 16, 28, 29) distinguish two scribes who wrote the Necropolis Journal of years 13 and 17: hand A ("mano A") wrote Giornale 13, 17-A recto, 17-A verso I, 17-B recto I, II, VII and VIII and 17-B verso ; hand B ("mano B") wrote Giornale 17-A verso II-VI and 17-B recto III-VI as well as lines a-b over 17-B recto VII-VIII. Keywords: commodity measured in ip.t in recto I 27-30: grain? Date attributed: note that regnal years 13 and 14 only appear on the verso, and that the relation between the recto and verso texts is unclear. Content: reference may be made here to temple objects and materials; hence unrelated to necropolis matters on verso?
