Lahun UC 32194 - translation

Account of produce added to an estate revenue, in a sequence of days (date in first part of line), with each addition qualified by an official (name and title in second part of line)

The titles mainly relate to the temple; the designation ‘head of leaders’ seems to denote the person with authority over all potential temple staff (everyone in the four rota groups or ‘watches’).

The remains of the column to the side indicates that the item supplied was grain.
