This fragment is only known from a photograph in the Cyrene archives. From the lettering and textual content, we might guess that it is a part of IGCyr062810, but this cannot be pushed because we have no information about dimensions either of the stone or of the letters.

Pugliese Carratelli thought the fragment to be complete at right. The photo does not really help to decide.

The word ἀγρός 'field' is mentionned twice (l. 2 and 4) in this small fragment along with ἔκδοσις 'sale' (l. 5). There is also the word for 'priest' (ἱαρεύς, l. 5), so that the whole might deal with some sacred land like in IGCyr062810.
