Lease of a garden

(March 14th, 22 BC)

From cartonnage found in Abusir el meleq. Rather careful script. The top is abraded. The document consisted of two sheets stuck together, of which the right one is lost (approximately 35 letters per line are missing). On the verso of the left sheet are two loan contracts, in a different hand from that of the recto (BGU IV 1150).
