Example text

Line x+: ). (rd) is probably to be translated ‘soles’ (Hagen a: ; pace Janssen : Line x+: The exact nature of mrht . is disputed, but seems often to have had a generic meaning of ‘fat’, ‘ointment’, ‘oil’, or similar; see Koura (: –) for a discussion of the relevant material, and cf. Sherman (: ). Line x+: The kbs, ‘grain basket’ was a fibre basket of a standardised size, the volume of which was  oipe, or just under  litres; Janssen (: ) noted that the use of the word for this object may be local to Deir el-Medina.
