Reuse note: Complicated reuse. Perhaps the present and quite short text was written on a strip of papyrus cut vertically from a roll or sheet (the kind of strip often used for letters), so that the surface that bears the demotic, written along the fibres, might be an original Vo surface. A reuse would be possible in this case.
