Recto V and VI: the vizier(?) has the Necropolis administrators swear an oath saying that they will not allow the workmen to leave (Western?) Thebes (see Remarks). He reads aloud a list of eight workmen, upon which the gang are dismissed and given something (see Remarks). Some (robbed?) gold and silver is found. Further events in the temple and granary of the goddess MAa.t involve the vizier(?), the Necropolis scribe 1r-Sri and the eight men mentioned before.
