Date 501 / 22.8.1107 - 10.8.1108
Content This document was among several buried documents which were discovered by Dr. Hoernlé 1900/01. The first part of the scroll is rotten and therefore, the reconstruction of the content is difficult. Maybe it deals with selling land in the province of Khotan. Contains a list of witnesses who signed the contract.
