Page: f70r2

The first panel (f70r2 proper) contains a circular diagram framed
by four rings of text (unit "C") between two faint mechanically
drawn circles. There are two faint radial strokes at 10:00, breaking the two
outer rings, and one at 09:05, breaking the two inner rings.

The second (half-)panel contains a paragraph with 13.7 lines of text
(unit "P"), part of which spans the fold between the two panels.

Inside the diagram's frame is an eight-pointed flower (or chubby
star), with serrated outline. A narrow channel or stem connects
the tip of each of the star arms to the frame.

Inside the flower there is a sun, containing a ring of text (unit
"I"), and inside it a human (woman's?) face with crossed eyes and
smooth light hair. The sun has eight S-shaped rays directed along
the star's arms, interleaved with eight long spikes with a bulbous
base, each touchng the diagram's frame.


Speculation is that the two inner circles are one paragraph since
they share the single line marker at 09:05, and the two outermost
are another paragraph since they share the double line marker at

However those lines may be modern guesses. The aligned gaps
at 12:00 on the two outer rings and at 06:00 on the two inner rings
are equally plausible.

Lines P.9 on were quite garbled in the "F" transcription --
it listed only 11 lines instead of the correct 14.
