|Date||IV (301 - 400)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain, probably a centre where Greek was the familiar language. Found at Antinoë. Our fragment, along with that of the St John’s Gospel in Aberdeen, is one of the very few Christian texts in Rustic Capital, a rarity in Latin script.
|TM Number||TM 61867|
|Contents||Testamentum Novum, Epistula Pauli (Vetus Latina, Eph 6.5–6, 11–2).|
A parchment strip containing the Old Latin version of Ephesians 6.5–6 on the recto and Ephesians 6.11–2 in Greek on the verso. Script, by a somewhat inexpert scribe, is broadish Rustic capital not of the oldest type: the failure to space properly suggests that the scribe hardly understood what he was copying (e.g. NO N); the form of the O in the Greek conforms to the Latin norm, whereas the proper distinction is made between the Greek and Latin N.
☛CLA date (IV–V) changed to follow D. Minutoli, Anal. Pap. 26 (2014), p. 96. ☛PSI XIII 1306. ☛Cavenaile, CPL 51.
