Conservation Status
The papyrus now consists of 8 separate fragments, all regularly cut at all sides. Numerous horizontal kolleseis due to the direction in which the text is written (vertically). The papyrus is generally in a good condition with very few holes. (TC) When the document came to the British Museum it was folded from the bottom upward. There is a blank space of ca. 16 cm. between the entry of Apellaios 30th and that of Audnaios 1st. This would indicate that the records for the two months were kept upon separate strips, because a vacant space of ca.16 cm. seems inordinately large merely to indicate the change from one month to another. Furthermore, the papyrus is exceedingly fine in texture and of a light-tan color.
Palaeographic Description
The text is written in a clear book-hand with a tendency toward ligatures; the ligatures, however, are not consistently carried out. Account written in one long, narrow column.
