The reduced dimensions of the preserved fragment and the display of the few preserved products allow to consider that this account was organised in two columns, like some others originally dated in the second century B.C. Rosamilia, 2016 has shown that the change from silver standard to bronze standard took place in Cyrenaica about 220 B.C. and he was also able ( Rosamilia, 2017 ) to place this account before 180 B.C., together with IGCyr014000, IGCyr014300 and IGCyr014600. One other common point for this group is the use of the abbreviated form of some products names.
