It is not clear to me whether this is papyrus or text placed on wooden tablets. I have not found the texts in the Egyptian Museum and from Maspero’s text I am not much wiser, it mentions both planks and papyri. So if you know the details, let me know. See for an English translation of the hieratic text Budge, The Gods of the Egyptions, Vol II, London 1903, page 13-16.
