Script Commentary

Script is a rather big half-uncial of an advanced type: open a is formed of two c's; the tongue of e stands almost in the middle and the eye is open. This practically undecipherable papyrus contains on p. 9 the Interpretatio of Brev. 2.16.3 and apparently the text on p. 5 is from Brev. 3.5.5. Off-sets from other leaves add to the difficulty of deciphering the papyrus.
