Commentary Under publication by Professor W.J. Tait, University of Durham. This text is of considerable interest. It is the only text of its kind in Egypt, and throws new light on words and their meanings. Many words included are rare with hitherto unclear meaning, which now has been clarified. It is also extraordinarily late for the use of Hieratic script.
