Small Document, Perhaps a Label

ink on leather

written in Official Aramaic

9.6 x 15.6cm (maximum)

The document concerns Bagavant, the governor of Khulmi, and his wife. It is perhaps a label originally attached to a container. A hole on one side  may have served to attach the document by means of a narrow strip to the container. No date is given.
