These fragments include the margin (there is no border). This is apparently from the same manuscript as EA 76429. Notes on slip of paper in the frame identify the chapters as 84 and 85. On the frame is written 'Unregistered fragments (14 frames)'.
A note by Stephen Quirke dated 14/5/1992 reads: 'Papyrus fragments in temporary clear-bound glass frames, seventeen frames. New Kingdom BD. In 1984 these were ten frames with brown paper binding and four batches of fragments on white paper loose including one batch with [BD] LXXXIV, LXXXV noted (see 1984 slide, Caroline Barry). By 1990 also two plastic sleeves of fragments (these now each mounted in small glass frame). One plastic sleeve was marked X 33, the other (? or a frame?) was marked A.35. The ten frames and two plastic sleeves treated 1990 by C. Barry (-> twelve frames). The loose four batches treated 1992 by B. Leach. (-> five frames)'.
