Collection History:

Belonged to the private collection of Nikolay P. Likhachev (visited Egypt in 1908, when he likely bought the document in Cairo). Although it was edited by Jernstedt as part of the Hermitage collection, it belongs to the Oriental Institute of the Academy of Sciences in Saint Petersburg. Likhachev could also have bought the item from the Kalebdijan brothers in Paris (Kalchenko/van der Vliet 2022: p. 210-212).
