Three fragments of papyrus. This manuscript appears to have been joined with others written in different hands in antiquity, possibly for book-binding purposes. Three separate fragments of papyrus with numerous lacunae appear to belong to it, preserving the left-hand side of the first 10 lines of this text (and possibly the lower margin) of a tithe collection contract. The verso is obscured by fragments belonging to the other papyri. A competent, essentially majuscule hand with a few ligatures.

Mounted with 1996,0608.9-14The place of origin was probably the Hermopolite monastery of Apa Apollo; for the typically Hermopolite name, Daurine (Taurine). Few details concerning the tithe collection are preserved in this fragmentary contract; the only item of interest in it is the phrase 'the sick ones'.
