"The column preserved contains thirty-three lines, yet is only some 11.5 cm tall. ... the height of the entire roll is unlikely to have been much more than 16 cm. Since the account on the back shows an upper but no lower margin, it seems that the roll has been cut down to the present size; at this period, small rolls may have been fashionable for poetry."
