Condition

The text in the scroll is preserved in poor condition; the ink is faded, in others has flaked off, therefore, in some places, the text is barely visible.

The decorations are in better condition but some damage can be noticed in them. Even in the most damaged sheet, the first, the decoration is preserved, albeit with faded paints.

The last membrane is torn.
