This madium-brown papyrus is badly damaged at the left edge, although the wide left margin (ca. 2 cm.) dramatically minimizes the loss of text. (TC)

The application is written in a small and somewhat casual hand in an upward direction; the 2nd and 3rd hands are similar but somewhat larger. (TC) The papyrus has already been used before; traces of a former washed out text are still visible. Abbreviation is by raising the last letter written.
