Hieratic Ostracon



Limestone ostracon with hieratic inscription in black ink on recto (seven lines) and on verso (eleven lines). Little visible on recto and nothing legible on verso. There is a transcription on the catalogue card made by Professor T. Eric Peet in 1922. In 1873 Samuel Birch, of the British Museum, examined it and described it as "having 7 lines on each side but too faint and injured to make out the purpose or meaning" (MS 7 November 1873).
