Those fragments belong to the incipit of a contributors list similar to IGCyr065200, IGCyr065210 and IGCyr009300, but the lettering is slightly smaller than in the first and second, although coming probably from the same workshop. So we must admit that there were at least three different lists.

The restoration of the incipit is based on the combination of the vestiges of all three lists.

Pugliese Carratelli found only a copy of fragment a in Oliverio's papers and published it without having found it at Cyrene.
