You need not retract what you said initially about the contraction for kai (attached here). This one is well known, and will be found for example in various texts reproduced in Ruth Barbour's Greek Literary Hands, such as text 108 lines 4, 5, 6. There is no shortage of tachygraphic abbreviations that do not look a bit like the explicit Greek.

The Greek is the Lord's Prayer, Matthew 6:10 - 14
The odd ligature in line 3 and line 5 must be και 'and' although it doesn't have any similarity.
The last two words are τους αιωνας
