### Fibre direction
The fibre direction was obtained from the observation of facsimiles. It is recorded as `fh` (horizontal) or `fv` (vertical), `mixed-horizontal` or `mixed-vertical` in the rare cases when there is a combination of vertical and horizontal fibres, for instance if two sheets of papyrus were pasted together. `mixed-horizontal` have a top and bottom half with different fivre direction, while `mixed-vertical` papyri have a left and right half.

Where a ruler is attached to the image and no measurement given, the measurements are taken from the highest to lowest part of the papyrus, and at the widest points of the papyrus.
