Background and Physical Properties

- Conservation Status
- A light-brown papyrus, of a slightly darker color at the kollesis (approx. 4 cm. from the right-hand side). It is cut off fairly regularly only at the top. There is an upper margin of 1 cm.
- The text on the verso side was written after the papyrus was broken off at the right and left-hand sides. One vertical fold is still visible. The text is extremely difficult to read in some places due to holes and very bad fading.
- Palaeographic Description
- The hand on the Verso is well-trained and writes quite large letters. The text on the recto side, written in large letters by a well-trained hand, begins 1.5 cm. from the upper edge.
