Cartonnage, thick paint of various colours covers the backs of fr. 1 and 3. The hand is a fine cursive, consistent with the first century BCE, but similar forms also appear earlier and later. The fragments show numerous holes and effaced ink at places. Large X marks on fragments 1, 2 and 3 next to entries indicate a list, with some names apparent--possibly a taxation list or business account. Fr. 1: only the left margin is present but highly damaged, 7 lines along the fibres; fr. 2: no margins, 7? very damaged lines along the fibres; fr. 3: possible left margin, 7 lines along the fibres; fr. 4: no margins, front, very damaged, traces of ink; back, 4 lines against the fibres.
