Couple on roller cushions in a palace with two maidservants behind them

The lower half of the sheet shows the representation of a couple in a palace, above it two vertical columns with text in blocks and below that also text in two columns, which continue on the back. Two columns of text on the front and back in ancient Persian script; recto at the top a kind of hopscotch shape with wide tracks and two blocks next to each other of which the blocks in the middle part are written opposite each other, the blocks also return halfway at the back; around the framing lines another piece of leaf and then framing lines again; leaf corners and sides torn and irregular.
