Abstract:
This board records an 18th dynasty administrative text from Meir. It provides quite interesting information such as titles, personal names, different types of cattle, toponyms, in addition to the attestation of the term wsx-boat. The text also lists the number of cattle of each individual with a total number of 71 cattle. The paper will try to shed light on the handwriting of this text as an important source for the 18th dynasty hieratic inscriptions. At the same time it will try to figure out the purpose of the text.
