Of this remarkable fragment, not much is known. It appears to predate by far all current worship, and is written in a script no longer extant.¹ Its medium is unique in the literature: it is stamped in an metal that eludes our attempts at identification², a sheet almost half an inch in thickness. Despite its apparent robustness, it is nonetheless an incomplete fragment of a single page of an evidently much larger book. Discovery of any further fragments would be a major archeological find of this century.
