General description

The Turin Love Songs

On the recto of Cat. 1966 there are two columns of love songs, a lengthy description primarily dealing with the erotic character of a fig tree and its use as a metaphor for love, fertility and sexuality. At the end of the second column there are two lines of hieratic belonging to an administrative text dealing with the transfer of copper and gold.


The verso contains nine different texts in three columns containing various administrative texts: part of an account for grain, lists of vessels containing liquids, an oath, and four texts dealing with stolen goods from several members of the Deir el-Medina.
