Excellent question. No, it does not use yod; it spells Elohim

For a hi-res image, see
If you read German, see

Offline, if you read French, see:
Bordreuil, P., Pardee, D. 1990. Le papyrus du Marzeah. Semitica 38:49-68.
P. Bordreuil, D. Pardee, Nouvel examen du < papyrus du marzeah >. Semitica

It script is closest to that of the Siloam inscription (Hezekiah's time).
