- Upper part cut away, a frequent practice since the several lines of polite address were not needed for reference, and the back had only the address, so it was used for scrap paper.

Recto (front): 17 lines (14 fully preserved), plus 14 shorter lines (11 full) on margin. Verso (back side): 16 lines (4 badly preserved), plus 13 on margin. Line 13 seriously damaged by fold (on recto side). See also E 16517. Not yet fully catalogued. Metadata based on image and Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS) data. Title based on Prof. Robert A. Kraft's 1990 survey of University Museum Hebrew Manuscripts. Upper part missing; lower part torn away irregularly.
