Fragment A (P.Berol. inv. 6747) measures 16.2 x 14 cm, and preserves 26 lines on the recto; 25 lines on the verso.
The original text is estimated to have been arranged in approx. 33-34 lines per page.
The initial letters of the verses are visibly larger (approx. doubled in size) than the rest of the script. There is no apparent punctuation, and the text contains irregular diaereses. The are several nomina sacra. A correction (no longer legivle) has been made by the same hand in l. 6 of the verso.
