Museum catalog notes that M. Noel Aime-Giron, French Consul at Port-Said, to whom S.L. Skoss(?) sent a photograph of this document, replied in May 1933; "In my opinion, this is a forgery. I know this handwriting very well, as I have seen it often on similar documents. I believe it comes from a forger who wanted to imitate Greek." 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. Top, left and right margins intact.
