General description

Calendar of Lucky and Unlucky Days

The text on the recto is a festival list for months 3 and 4 of the Inundation season which is the time of the annual flooding. Each day of the month is followed by a list of feasts occurring on that day, designation of favourable or adverse day, and injunctions. The text seems comparable to Book I and Book III of the Cairo Calendar no. 86637. 

The verso contains a letter from the gang of Deir el-Medina or its administrators, asking for the delivery of grain rations, garments and "wages" from the treasury. Furthermore, written on the verso are accounts and administrative texts.
