Notes/Discussion:

Daniel & Maltomini (1990: p. 61) note that the fibres of the upper strip are perpendicular to those of the lower sheet and that there are traces of a protokollon on the recto of the lower sheet. Ink transferred after folding gives the misleading impression that this is a palimpsest.
