|Date||I (1 - 100)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain. Found at Oxyrhynchus. The excellent script and generous margins suggest that the volume is an importation. The terminus ante quem is furnished by the Greek astronomical treatise (Gr. 527) on the back, which experts assign to the latter half of the third or the first half of the fourth century.

Script is expert Rustic Capital of an old type; the general impression is that of slimness: A has no bar; B is decidedly tall; G has a tiny tail turning down; the bows of P and R are small; the second stroke of U is thin and often goes below the line; ligature of UM occurs at line-end. To be compared with the Herculaneum papyri (CLA 3.385, 386, 387) with which it has some slight resemblance; see also the Aulus Gellius palimpsest in Vatic. Palat. Lat. 24 (CLA 1.74).
