Remarks: Numbers : "P. Turin 1082" in Bruyère, Mert Seger à Deir El Médineh , 235. Description: recto V and column preceding verso I not numbered by Pleyte-Rossi, Papyrus de Turin , pls. CVI, CVIII and CIX. The numbers of lines and columns by Pleyte-Rossi are maintained here. Publication: transcription of the entire text, including some small fragments added after the publication by Pleyte-Rossi, in Cern MSS.3.571, 723-731. Dates attributed: Bruyère, Mert Seger à Deir El Médineh , 235: "époque Ramsès III" (sic). "Year 8" (verso I 9, verso II 1, 7, 10) also of Ramesses IX according to e.g. Valbelle, Ouvriers , 105; Gutgesell, Datierung I, 135. Names, Titles: recto III 25 wbA-nswt [...] -xa or wbA-nswt 2a ? Cf. McDowell, Village Life , 223 ("Kha"); Helck, Die datierten und datierbaren Ostraka , 418: ( Imn- ) xa . A gap after wbA-nswt is indicated in Pleyte-Rossi, Papyrus de Turin , pl. 105 and in Cern MSS.3.725. Recto IV 15: read ms-aA.t ? Traces indicated by Cern MSS.3.727 seem hard to reconcile with this. Cf. McDowell, Village Life , 223: "alabaster-cutters"; Helck, Die datierten und datierbaren Ostraka , 418: "Alabastersteinmetzen".
