A letter for the dead, written for a women named Ankhiry
This letter was attached to a wooded statue of a women to whom this letter was adressed and placed inside her tomb. The content of the letter is meant to ease the husbands suffering. Three years after his wife’s death he is writting to her to stop paining him in her afterlife. In the letter it becomes clear why; he speaks of brothel visits and adultery but insists that he is NOT guilty of these things. In the end he becomes desperate and threatens to carry his point before the gods.
The man was obviously suffering from a bad conscious and in his desperation threatened the dead.
There are 17 lines written on papyrus in hieratic from right to left.
