Remarks: Description: There might have been an additional fourth column, placed between column A and column B ; Janssen, Village Varia , 115. The gap between the two fragments of recto B might be la r ger than the 1 cm initially proposed by Gardiner ; Janssen, Village Varia , 113, 119 note b. The diagram showing the placement of the papyrus fragments in Janssen, Village Varia , 113 appears to have erroneously labelled what, according to the description, must be recto C as recto A, and what must be recto A as recto C; cf. Černý Notebook 48 . 2. Terminology: in.n=f Imn.t.t WAs.t (recto B 29) may alternatively be read in n=f Imn.t.t WAst , both options, however, remaining somewhat obscure ; Janssen, Village Varia , 118, 119 note p.
