"The river Tanais which divides Asia and Europe".

The name (all in black ink) is spread over two lines, with the only stop being one at the end.

The initial three-quarters inch of the river course on 8A1 is faint. Subsequently, also on 8A1, a deep gash into the parchment removes one-quarter inch of the course.

The notice of the Tanais as a river that divides continents corresponds to the notice for the Nilvs (8C1-8C4).
