Volume I 

LITERARY TEXTS (Nos. i— 6i) 







191 1 








THE present volume forms the first part of the third issue in the series of 
descriptive catalogues or guides to the collection of Oriental and Western 
manuscripts in the John Rylands Library. 

Although the manuscripts described in the present catalogue are not of greater 
importance than those which furnished the material for the preceding issues in the same 
series — the Demotic and Coptic Papyri — they are certainly of more general interest, and 
therefore a much wider circulation will be given to the volume. 

For that reason it has been thought advisable to indicate, in a few words, something 
of the range and character of the collection to which they belong, for the information 
of those scholars who are yet either unaware, or have but a vague idea of its importance. 

The manuscripts number at the present time about 7,000, and constitute one of the 
principal attractions of the library. The nucleus of the collection consisted of the manu- 
scripts contained in the Althorp Library, which was acquired by Mrs. Rylands in 1892 
from the late Earl Spencer, to form part of the equipment of the present building, which 
was at that time in course of construction. This was added to from time to time by other 
purchases. But the present magnificence and special character of the collection were 
given to it by the purchase, in 1901, of the manuscripts of the Earl of Crawford, consisting 
of nearly six thousand rolls, tablets, and codices. It is- of considerable importance, illus- 
trating as it does the history of writing and illumination in the principal languages and 
characters, and at the same time offering to students, in many departments of hterary 
research, original sources of great interest. 

Beginning with the Eastern section, it must be said at once that the wealth of 
Oriental manuscripts, of all ages, and in a variety of languages, can only be indicated 
in the briefest manner. Armenian, Ethiopic, Sanskrit, Pali, Panjabi, Hindustani, 
Marathi, Parsi, Burmese, Canarese, Singhalese, Tamil, Chinese, Japanese, Malay, 
Javanese, Achinese, Mongolian, Balinese, Tibetan, Bugi, Kawi, Madurese, Makassar, 
and Mexican manuscripts are well represented. There are examples of those curious 
and rare productions the ' medicine books ' of the Battas, inscribed on the bark of the 
alim-tree, or on bamboo poles. Of more general interest are the Persian, Arabic, and 
Turkish manuscripts, numbering nearly two thousand volumes. The examples of the 
' Koran ', dating from the eighth and ninth centuries, are, in many cases, of extraordinary 
beauty and value. 

Of papyrus rolls and fragments there are examples of the ' Book of the Dead * in 
Egyptian Hieroglyphic and Hieratic. The Demotic papyri, the catalogue of which, compiled 
by Mr. F. LI. Griffith, M.A., Reader in Egyptology in the University of Oxford, appeared 
last year, after about ten years of persistent labour, form probably the most important 
collection of documents in this script at present extant. There are a large number of 


Greek papyri, the literary portion of which is described in the present volume ; and a con- 
siderable collection of Arabic papyri, the result of the examination of which is awaited 
with interest. 

In Coptic the papyri and the codices, ranging from the sixth to the sixteenth 
century, have been described by Mr. W. E. Crum, M.A., in the catalogue which also 
appeared last year. In Samaritan there is an interesting, though not large, group of 
Biblical and liturgical texts, including an important vellum codex of the ' Pentateuch ', 
written in a. d. 1211. In Syriac there is a vellum codex of the 'Gospels' of the sixth 
century, and what is probably the earliest known complete Syriac ' New Testament ', 
written about a. d. 1000. The Hebrew manuscripts comprise many ' Rolls of the Law ', 
and several illuminated codices of the ' Haggadah '. Among the Greek manuscripts 
there are several beautiful Gospel books, but the most important member of the group 
is a considerable fragment of a vellum codex of the 'Odyssey', possibly of the third 
century ; this is published in the present volume (No. 53) along with the papyri, with which 
its date and Egyptian provenance naturally associate it. 

Of the Latin manuscripts, whether produced in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, 
Flanders, or England, there are some hundreds, including several known to have issued 
from famous writing schools of the Middle Ages. The English, French, and Italian 
manuscripts, though not numerous, will fittingly bear comparison with the Latin. 

If the manuscripts themselves excite interest and admiration, not less striking 
are many of the jewelled bindings in metal and ivory, dating from the tenth to the 
thirteenth centuries, which impart to them a character and a value of a very special kind. 

While it is the primary duty of a library to preserve its books and manuscripts, 
yet the importance of such an institution rests not upon the mere custodianship, nor 
upon the number of works assembled upon its shelves, but upon the use to which they 
are put. It is essential, therefore, that the value and importance of such a collection 
should be made known, and it is with this object that the Governors have undertaken 
the publication of the series of descriptive catalogues of which the present volume forms 
a part. 

A number of recognized scholars have kindly undertaken to deal with the manu- 
scripts in their own special line of research, with the result that work upon several 
other groups of documents is in an advanced state of progress. 

Mr. H. W. Hogg, M.A., B.Lit., Professor of Semitic Languages in the University 
of Manchester, has undertaken the Arabic manuscripts, a large group of upwards of 
a thousand volumes. Dr. Montague Rhodes James, Provost of King's College, Cam- 
bridge, is dealing with the Western section. Dr. A. E. Cowley, Sub-Librarian of the 
Bodleian, Oxford, is engaged upon the Samaritan group. Dr. R. A. Nicholson, M.A., 
Lecturer in Persian in the University of Cambridge, has undertaken to catalogue the 
Persian collection ; Dr. D. S. Margoliouth, Laudian Professor of Arabic in the University 
of Oxford, has undertaken to describe the Arabic papyri; and Dr. Rendel Harris the 
Syriac manuscripts. 

Manchester, Librarian. 

December, 1910, 


THE great majority of the texts here published, which constitute the Hterary por- 
tion of the Greek papyri belonging to the John Rylands Library were purchased 
by myself in Egypt on behalf of Lord Crawford or the late Mrs. Rylands. The locality 
from which some of them proceeded was ascertained with tolerable clearness, and the 
origin of one or two more is fixed by internal evidence. Wherever the provenance seemed 
sufficiently assured this is specified; when no locality is named, it is to be inferred that 
satisfactory testimony was not forthcoming. . 

My thanks are due to several scholars who have kindly assisted me on special 

points, more particularly to Mr. T. W. Allen, whom I have consulted on "^^"^^^ P^^^^^^ 

to Homer to Prof J. Ilberg, who has made some valuable suggestions on Nos. 21, 29 and 

29 (a), to Prof Gilbert Murray, who has seen some of the proof sheets ^nd contributed 

a reconstruction of No. 15, and to Prof. Smyly in connexion with No. 27^ Dr. Schuba t 

was good enough to verify for me certain points in papyri preserved at the Berlin Museum. 

The non-literary section of the Rylands papyri, which is naturally much more 

extensive, will occupy at least two volumes, of which the first is already in hand and will, 

it is hoped, be issued early in 1912. A chronological arrangemen ^^fJ^^J^^^^^ 

and the next Part of this Catalogue will accordingly contain documents of the Ptolemaic 

and Roman epochs, those of the Byzantine period being reserved until later.

In this volume the originals are generally reproduced so far as possible except for 
division of words, capital initials in proper names, and supplements of lacunae. Accen- 
tuation and punctuation, &c., has however for the sake of greater clearness been intro- 
duced in Nos. 27 and 29-29 {b). Additions or corrections by the same hand as the body of 
a text are throughout in small thin type, those by a different hand in thick type. Square 
brackets [ ] indicate a lacuna, round brackets ( ) the resolution of a symbol or abbreviation, 
angular brackets < ) a mistaken omission in the original, braces { } a superfluous letter or 
letters, double square brackets [[ ]] a deletion in the original. Dots placed within brackets 
represent the approximate number of letters lost or deleted ; dots outside brackets indicate 
mutilated or otherwise illegible letters. Letters with dots underneath them are to be con- 
sidered doubtful. Heavy Arabic numerals refer to the texts in this volume, ordinary numerals 
to lines, small Roman numerals to columns. 

The abbreviations used in referring to papyrological publications are as follows : —

IO-3 X II-5 cm. Fourth century. 

These few verses from the second and third chapters of Deuteronomy in the 
Septuagint version are inscribed on the lower part of a leaf out of a papyrus book. It was 
not a showy volume, for the leaf is made up of a sheet of which the recto had been 
previously used, the two pieces being stuck together face to face ; hence the literary 
writing in both pages is on the verso. This makeshift material is well matched by the 
unornamental character of the script. The text is in two (or possibly more) columns, written 
in rather large and roughly formed round uncials. Hands of this class are difficult to date, 
but a terminus a quo is fortunately provided by the cursive document of the recto, where 
the month Phaophi in the loth year of Diocletian, which = the 9th of Maximian, i. e. 
A.D. 293, is mentioned. A fourth-century date for the copy of Deuteronomy is therefore 
very suitable, and to that period it is most probably to be assigned ; it is not likely to 
be later than the end of the century. 

This fragment may thus claim to be not inferior in point of antiquity to the Codex 
Vaticanus (B), and to surpass the Codex Alexandrinus (A), the other principal authority 
(commonly ascribed to the fifth century) for Deuteronomy ; and in spite of its unattractive 
appearance it presents a text which is not without interest. This, as is so often the case 
with early papyri, cannot be readily classified. Noticeable agreements with B against A and 
F (the Ambrosianus, of the seventh century) occur at 11. 4, 7-8, 29, and 39, with AF against 
B at 11. 9, 14, 37, and 43. There is also one variant (1. 26) which is not shared with any 
of the uncial MSS., but reappears in several of the cursives; while two more (11. lo-ii 
and 37) are the peculiar property of the papyrus, and not otherwise recorded. In the 
former of these two cases the ordinary reading has been supplied in the margin as an 
alternative. Accents and breathings have been added with what in a prose manuscript 
is a surprising frequency ; another sign rarely met with outside poetical texts is the small 
marginal cross which occurs opposite 11. 48-9. An apostrophe usually accompanies the 
final letter of a proper name ending with a mute, a practice exemplified also in P. Oxy. 2, 
&c. Punctuation is effected by a stop in the middle position. All these adjuncts are 
presumably due to the original scribe, at any rate if, as is likely, he was responsible for the 
correction of 11. lo-ii. 

References in the collation below to the uncial MSS. are taken from Swete's Cambridge 
edition, to the cursives from Holmes and Parsons.

Frag. 3 17-2 X IO-2 cm. Sixth or seventh century. Plate i (Frag, i recto). 

The following portions of the chapters i, v, and vi of the book of Job are contained 
on the remains of two leaves from a papyrus book, doubtless the same as that to which 
P. Amh. 4 once belonged. Not only is the arrangement of the lines identical and the 
hand of the same type, but the verso at the top of the first page of P. Amh. 4 (i. 21) is the 
correct continuation of that at the bottom of one of the pages of 2, which cannot be 
a fortuitous coincidence ; these two leaves were therefore contiguous in the codex. Several 
other instances will be noticed in this volume where Rylands papyri prove to be parts 
of texts already published, illustrating the unfortunate way in which the finds made by 
natives tend to become divided and scattered. 

The hand is rather large upright uncial, which may be assigned to the sixth or seventh 
century. A light brown ink was employed which is sometimes very difficult to distinguish 
on the discoloured and rubbed surface. The verses are as usual stichometrically arranged, 

B 2 


a fresh line being normally begun for each successive o-tlxos, the initial letter of which 
is somewhat enlarged. Textually the papyrus possesses some slight interest, having two 
readings otherwise recorded only in later cursives (cf notes on 11. 7-8 and 29) and two or 
three others which are peculiar to itself (11. 19, 78, 82). Of the three chief uncials, BnA, 
which are collated below, it is much nearest to B, and incorporates none of the longer 
variants of the Codex Alexandrinus.

inserted between irava-aadai and jj ^vxV- The vestiges of the first two letters of 1. 83 rather suggest vw, and

3. PSALM xc (xci). 

Behnesa. 10-4 x 10 cm. Fifth or early sixth century. 

The latter part of the 90th Psalm, badly copied in an irregular semi-cursive hand of 
medium size, probably in the fifth or early sixth century. The verses are written con- 
tinuously without division, and punctuation is also lacking. From the appearance of the 
sheet, which at the ends of the lines is unbroken, as well as the character of the hand and 
of the orthography, it may be surmised that this fragment was not part of an extensive 
manuscript, and perhaps the papyrus when complete included no more than this single 
Psalm, which was transcribed as an amulet; cf the wax-tablet published by Nicole in 
Textes grecs de la Collection papyrologique de Geneve, 1909, pp. 43 sqq., where part of the 
same Psalm is copied at the end of an account. For textual purposes a document of this 
kind is unlikely to be of much independent value, and the chief point of interest is to 
observe its affinities, which are with the Codex Alexandrinus, the Turin Psalter, and the 
second corrector of the Codex Sinaiticus, as against the Vaticanus ; cf notes on 11. 3, 14, 
21, 23.

14-8 X 23-1 cm. Late sixth or seventh century. 

An extract from the twelfth chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, written with a dark 
brown ink in long lines across the fibres of the recto of the papyrus. The medium-sized 
sloping letters are of the uncial type for the most part, but 8 is regularly provided with 
a diagonal loop, and other tendencies towards cursive occasionally manifest themselves; 
the style indicates a date about the end of the sixth or the beginning of the seventh century. 
There is a loss of some lines at the top, and the extract, which ends at verse 8, presumably 
began with verse i of the chapter. It seems to have been copied out for reading in church, 
and there are some comma-like marks (others have perhaps disappeared), inserted above 
the line between certain words and syllables, which may have been intended to guide the 
reader's eye ; but since the verso is blank it is unlikely, though the inference is not certain, 
that this was a leaf from a formal lectionary. Textually the fragment is of slight value, 
though an agreement with the Codex Sinaiticus against the other chief MSS. is observable 
in 1. 9.

How the more cursive letters following iXaporrjTt. should be explained is uncertain. An overwritten 
letter above the doubtful « looks like a x. but may possibly be meant for X ; the supposed t is a vertical stroke 
in continuation of the cross-bar of e, through which stroke there is a diagonal dash. Perhaps nothing more 
than a chrism follows, the appearance of an a at the top of it being delusive. r€X(€vro) r) €Tr(i<rroX7j) is a con- 
ceivable interpretation, but that is not a usual formula. 



I0'6x4'9 cm. Third century. Plate i (verso). 

This fragment, containing parts of a few verses from the first and second chapters of 
the Epistle to Titus, comes from the bottom of a leaf out of a papyrus book which appears 
to have been of a decidedly early date. The round and rather large uncial hand is very 
similar to that of the Oxyrhynchus Genesis (Part IV, No. 656 ; cf Plate II), which we 
assigned to the third century, and it no doubt belongs to about the same period as that 
papyrus, though the present fragment is perhaps the later of the two. A slight tendency 
towards division of words may be observed. The usual contractions of deov and, probably, 
avdpdtiTOiv are employed. 

Though too small to be of much value textually, the fragment preserves one interesting 
reading, a^dovLav for a^dopiav in ii. 7, which is recorded as a variant in two ninth-century 
manuscripts, but has apparently not previously been found in any actual text. But the 
correctness of d(f>0ovLav does not of course follow from its now established antiquity.

I3-4X i2'9 cm. Sixth century. Plate 3. 

This papyrus has the distinction of preserving what is, apparently, considerably 
the oldest copy extant of the Nicene Creed. It is, unluckily, mutilated, the left-hand half 
of the sheet, on which the text was inscribed in long lines across the fibres, having 
disappeared entirely, as well as the corner at the top of the opposite side. In these circum- 
stances it is difficult to measure the length of the lacunae with much accuracy, especially 
where, as in the case of the first ten lines, the precise point of division between the lines is 
not absolutely certain. With which of the slightly varying versions of the Creed this early 
Egyptian copy had most affinity is therefore uncertain ; so far as can be judged it did not 
quite coincide with any one of them. The main authorities for the text are : (i) a letter of 
Eusebius which was written to his diocese at the time of the Nicene Council and is extant 
in three chief recensions, viz. Appendix to Athanasius, De decret. synod. Nic. (E»), Socrates, 
Hist. Eccl. \. 8 (E^), and Theodoret, Hist. Eccl. i. 12 (E*) ; (2) Athanasius, Epist. ad lovianum 
3 (A) ; (3) Socrates, Hist. Eccl. i. 8 (S) ; (4) Basil, Epist. 125 (B) ; (5) Cyril of Alexandria, 
Epist. 3 ad Nestorium (C) and Epist. ad Anastasium (Migne No. 55). A collation with these 
versions is appended in the notes below. 

c 2 


The text of the Creed proper is preceded and followed by certain formulae which are 
unfamiliar from other sources. That at the end is a personal profession of faith couched 
in the first person singular : ' This is my creed, with this language [I shall approach without 
fear(?)] the terrible judgement-seat of the Lord Christ in that dread day when He shall come 
again in His own glory to judge the quick and the dead and to reign with the saints for ever 
and ever. Amen.' Of the introductory matter only a few words remain, but they suffice to 
indicate that its tenor was a statement of the authority on which the Creed rested ; there 
is an ambiguous reference in the third line to Rome. 

The papyrus is a good deal rubbed, and the brown ink is sometimes difficult to 
distinguish against the dark surface. The handwriting is a sloping uncial, small in the 
first three lines, but from that point onward of a medium size which tends gradually 
to increase; it seems to be of about the sixth century, A soft breathing occurs twice 
in 1. 12, and a stop in the middle position in 1. ii. The usual theological contractions are 
found, besides one or two other abbreviations, including k, for /cai; ov is written as 
a monogram above the line in /xou and tov in 11. 14 and 15. 

On the other side of the sheet are a few, for the most part illegible, lines of what looks 
like some sort of account, ending with the name of the month XoiW. Whether this is the 
recto or the verso is questionable, but on the whole it appears probable that the Creed is

3. A reference to Rome here is hardly expected, since the Roman bishop Silvester seems to have taken no 
prominent part in convening the council, which he did not attend, nor to have presided at it through his 
deputies. But it is unnecessary to assume any such implication in the present passage. 

5. Eust. places ixovoyevrj before ©eoV instead of after irarpoy. 

6. <j)o)s : KOI *6>s E*S. Perhaps the doubtful e of aXrjdfivov is really a and some other letter was deleted 
between it and j;. 

8. €v rr] yq : ewl rjjy y^s A, and room could be found in the papyrus for this variant, either by supposing 
that ov(pa)va> was written, or by omitting tov before 8t -qixai, with S. The uncontracted form of ovpav6i is, 
however, rather more suitable in 1. lo, and the assumption of an agreement herewith S is not very satisfactory. 
That the writer was inconsistent in the matter of contraction is shown by 1. 5, where Ttarpoi is written out. 

9. The omission of Kot before (vav6poiTTr}]tTavT[a (so E'AB) is desirable in order to reduce the length of the 
initial supplement, which even so has two or three letters more than those of the lines immediately preceding 
and following. But the restoration of this passage is complicated by the doubt as to the meaning of the 
illegible insertion above the line. Possibly the termination is -dovra or -devTa,hut there is no known variant to 
which it could belong. A more tempting interpretation would be to suppose that the addition represented in 
nvfvuaros 'Aylov Koi Mapi'oj ttjs Tlapdivov, a phrase which first appears in the Creed preserved by Epiphanius, 
Ancorate, c. 120, and was incorporated in the Nicene Creed as confirmed by the Council of Chalcedon in 
A.D. 451. KJa: Ma[pias :r]ap06vou might be read, but there is no room for ttjs. 

10. fpxoufvov: or (c(at) (pxop.(vov (E*'), which could be read if rovs were omitted (so E* Clem. £/>. 55) or 
if ovpavovs were abbreviated ourous. 

11. TO ayiov iTv{fvn)a: or to ■}Tv(evfx)a to ayiov, with E'AC. E*S add on after Xeyoiras. 

13. Considerations of space make it practically certain that r\ ktkttov, which in most of the authorities 
precedes ij rpcirTov but is omitted by E'C, did not stand in the papyrus. 

T0VT0V9 : om. E*'S ; tovs toiovtovs B. 

14. The papyrus apparently agreed with E*'C in omitting ayia before KaBoXiK-q. E* omits icat airo^ 
oToXiKTj. At the end of the line tjjs ovoix[ is very uncertain : the doubtful r; may be 01 or ov, and n or i<r 
could be read in place of v ; but neither rrjy oj^ioXo[ytos nor i;pocroi<Top,[ai are suitable. 

15. ^T/fiart: cf. Rom. xiv. 10 TTapaaTr)cr6p.i6a t<3 /S^/nart roC Oeov, 2 Cor. v. lo ^avepcadfjvai 8fi itmpo<r6(v tov

16-17. The supplements a.Te added exempli gratia. The last line may also be a doxology, e.g. to crw 
■jr(aT)pi (t(ai) ayim ^^(eufiar)! tj So^a «ts rovs aia)]vos, or 81 ov t] ho^a Kot to Kparos €is xrX. (cf. e. g. P. Oxy. 407. 6). 

7. HYMN. 

17-8 X 13-9 cm. Sixth century. Plate 2. 

A Christian hymn to the Saviour, well preserved after the first few Unes. There 
is a break at the top of the papyrus, but the extent of the loss can be accurately determined 
from the fact that the composition is an acrostic, the lines commencing with the letters of 
the alphabet in their order from a to w. The acrostic method, of which there is an instance 
on papyrus as early as the first century (P. Tebt. 278), was very common in the Byzantine 
period ; cf 41, Krumbacher, Gesck. d. Byz. Lit. pp. 697 sqq., and, for another example of its 
use in a hymn, P. Amh. 2, The lines are furthermore divided off into stanzas by a kind 
of refrain introduced at every fourth verse, in which the first word only is varied. Apart 
from this strophic arrangement there is no attempt at metre. The subject of the hymn, which 
may have been intended for the Christmas festival, is the birth of Christ and its attendant 


blessings. Some parallels in language are cited from the Greek liturgy for Christmas 
in the notes below. 

The text is written across the fibres of the papyrus in fairly good sloping uncials of 
medium size, dating from about the sixth century. It is rather inaccurate, and a number 
of small alterations are necessary; it may of course be removed several stages from 
the archetype. There are signs of another line below the conclusion of the hymn, which 
therefore was perhaps followed by another ; but the papyrus seems to have been an 
isolated sheet, not part of an extensive MS.

4. 8o[^]a o-ot [ might be read, but the line is no doubt to be restored on the analogy of II. 8, 13, 16, and 19,

17. pr}p.aTa aXrjfleio is apparently for prjixa rrjs aX-qdfLas in apposition to ks like (fxoi in 1. 20. The metaphor

18. 1. a-apKa)6eis . ■ . ttjs aTSiipoyap.ov. The r line which should intervene between 11. 18 and 19 is missing, 
and perhaps has dropped out ; but it may be easily supplied by writing njs aireipoyaiMov as a separate line. 
Immediately below the initial a- of (rapKodeLs there is a mark resembling a paragraphus, but probably this is an 
accidental smudge and has nothing to do with the dislocation of the acrostic at this point.

6-2 X 8.7 cm. Fifth century. 

A small fragment of papyrus inscribed on both sides with a series of sentences based 
mainly upon the Psalms, but including one citation from the New Testament. A free use 
is made of the scriptural texts, suggesting that the quotations were from memory, and 
possibly the leaf, which is inaccurately written in a medium-sized clear semi-cursive, of, 
perhaps, the fifth century, was not designed for more than private devotional purposes ; 9, 
however, which contains a composition of similar character, has the appearance of part 
of a regular service-book.

3-4- Cf Matt. xix. 14, Luke xviii. 16, Mark x. 14. The papyrus takes epxerdai from Mark and Luke 
{i\0e'Lv, Matt.), t&v ovpavS>v from Matthew (toC Oiov, Mark, Luke). o<^[e]rai is for a(l>[€\Te and hiovratv 

for TOlOVTUiV. 

5-8. Cf. Ps. xxiv. 5-7. (701 in 1. 5 should be o-e. In adding K{vpi)i after crov in 1. 7 the papyrus agrees 
with SARU against B. It is peculiar in omitting ^ov after veorjjTos and in having ov fir) for jurj in 1. 8, where 
fxov fir] (i<"-»ARU) cannot be read. The k of Kai has been corrected perhaps from a ix.

cf. Ps. xxvi. 9, xxxvii. 31, Ixx. 9, 18, cxviii. 8, cxxxix. 9. Neither (f>i\dv6pcx)voi nor (jjiKavOpatma occurs 
in the Psalms. 

13. The supposed chrism before [h]t] is very doubtful, being represented only by part of the cross-bar 
which might equally well belong to e. g. c or s ; but (f>i\ai{ep]o>Tr[o]i would not fill the space. 

I3-I4' = Ps. 1. 13. anopo^ii is for aTrop(p)i\j/r)s and ■n]po(Ta>-n<a for -ov. 

14-16. Cf. Ps. 1. 13 Kapbiav Kadapav ktCctov h i/xol, 6 Oios. Either iKTiT[e]v or €(crKT[o]v may have been written, 
ktIvov being intended in either case ; and 1. o-wo-oj; for o-cofor. 


3i'ix35-3cm. Fifth or sixth century. 

The contents of this papyrus, the upper part of a large leaf from a book, resemble 
those of 8, consisting of a number of sentences which incorporate more or less exactly 
scriptural phraseology, derived in this case from Isaiah as well as the Psalms ; as before, 
however, the latter are especially prominent. The surface of the papyrus is in places much 
damaged, and the consequent difficulty of decipherment is augmented by the illiterate 
corruption of the text. This is written with brown ink in rather large and thick sloping 
uncials, which may be assigned to the fifth or sixth century. The common contractions 
are employed, and Kai is written k,. An abbreviation which perhaps stands for akX-qXovid 
(cf. note on 11. lo-ii) usually marks the close of the different versicles.

6. It is uncertain whether icj a or simply ko should be read. 

7. Xvix\}fa(r seems clear, but the meaning is obscure ; perhaps \ajLt\//ay or kr}fi\j/ . . . was intended. The

9. Cf Ps. cxxxvii. 5 fi«y(iX7j ^ 8o'fa KvpCov (^<''•*ART). avTOKparmp occurs only in 4 Maccabees (airoKp.

lo-ii. Cf. Ps. xxviii. II Kv/oios tvXoyjjo-ei rfii; Xadv aiirov iv elprivr}. ao>va, not at- nor e-, was apparently 
written. Whether the letters before the chrism are rightly interpreted as ak{\ri\ovia) is doubtful. The a is quite 
clear at 1. 22 (it is unlikely that a there should be connected with what precedes), and this is followed by what 
seems to be A joined by an oblique stroke of abbreviation. aAA.jjA.owci is commonly used as a title in the 
Psalms, but occurs also at the end of Ps. cl ; cf Berl. Klass. vi. vi. 4. 5. In 1. 8 a chrism only is used. 

12-14. = Ps, xlvii. 1-2. 1. aiviTOi (T(pobpa {A similarly has here aivtro <T(f>obpa) . . . tvpiCci). Something 
apparently stood in the papyrus between r]ixa)v and opei, and probably ev was read as in t<°''RT. B*SART

14-15. KaQa-nep . . . t]baix[(]v is from Ps. xlvii. 9. 1. -qKovtrantv : ibanev for etSo/xcr is also the spelling of A*RT,

15. Where the insertion placed above this line, and continued also over 1. 16, was intended to come in

the interlineation is presumably to be connected with those words ; the identity of the termination ]o/^€ws

18-3 X 21-4 cm. Sixth century. Plate i. 

The following fragment, which is evidently part of a description of the adventures 
of some Christian saint, is apparently not extant. What remains of the narrative is for 
the most part a discourse by the saint, who had been condemned to death by starvation 
(1. 6) and already been twenty or more days without food or drink (1. 3). M. H. Delehaye, 


to whom the text has been submitted, suggests that it may possibly come from an 
early redaction of the martyrdom of Lucian, who was similarly subjected to the torture 
of starvation, but is not credited in the extant account (Migne, Patres Graeci, 114. 397) 
with the language found in the papyrus. 

Both the beginnings and ends of the lines are lost, but the extent of the lacunae 
is determined by 11. 7-8, where a quotation from the First Epistle to the Corinthians shows 
that the gap at that point extends to 25 letters. On this basis the loss elsewhere is roughly 
calculated, though of course it is quite uncertain how the lines are to be divided, and the 
arrangement adopted below is purely arbitrary. The hand, a large sloping uncial, but 
including a minuscule /a, may be assigned to the sixth century; the writing is at right 
angles to the fibres, and the ink of the brown colour common in the Byzantine period. 
For punctuation, besides the ordinary dots, which occur in three positions, a comma 
is sometimes used, but this seems to have indicated division of words rather than a true 
pause. On the verso is a seventh-century Coptic account giving a list of names with 
payments in artabae of o-iros.

15-1 X 13-6 cm. Fifth or sixth century. 

Whether this fragment should be classed as literary is very doubtful. It is written 
across the fibres of the papyrus in a large uncial hand of the fifth or sixth century, 
and the widely spaced lines, of which the ends are preserved, may have been of con- 
siderable length. The first and second persons plural are used, and there is a reference 
to the ' terrible judgement-seat of Christ our God '. Perhaps the fragment belongs to 
a hortatory composition of some kind; but it may be only from a letter, though the 
style of the writing suggests that the contents were not intended simply for private 
perusal, and would suit an epistle of some dignitary of the Church.

Fayiim. 22 X 12-4 cm. A. D. 250. Plate 2. 

This papyrus, though not literary, may conveniently be included in the theological 
section. It is another example of the lihelli or declarations of conformity to the pagan 
worship exacted during the Decian persecution of the Christians. As in the case of 
four out of the five instances hitherto known (B. G. U. 287 ; Sttzungsb. Wien. Akad. 1894 ; 
P. Oxy. 658; Bulletin de la Societe Archeol. d^Alexandrie, No. 9, p. 88; Patrol. Orient. 
iv. 2), its provenance is the Fayiim, and its phraseology corresponds almost exactly with 
that of B. G. U. 287. The present declaration, however, which was made by a woman 
(cf. 1. 2 and note), has this advantage over its predecessors that it is practically quite com- 
plete, including the official signature in 1. 11, which closely resembles that of the libellus 


published by Wessely in Patrol. Orient, iv. 2 and confirms Wilcken's restoration of the 
corresponding mutilated passage in the Berlin papyrus; cf. Archiv v, pp. 277-8. *

and now also I have in your presence, in accordance with the command, made sacrifice and libation and tasted 
the offering, and I beg you to certify my statement. Farewell. I, Aurelia Demos, have presented this 
declaration. I, Aurelius Irenaeus, wrote for her, as she is illiterate. I, Aurelius Sabinus, prytanis, saw you

^-3. It is noticeable that although the husband of Aurelia Demos was living, and signed on her behalf, 
she here acts independently, whereas in the Vienna libellus the two men who make the declaration are 
associated with their wives. In Wessely's papyrus the declaring party is again a woman, but there is no 
reference to her husband.

Behnesa. ia-5 x 7-4 cm. Second century. Plate 4. 

A Strip of papyrus containing on the verso the beginnings of the last sixteen lines 
of a column, with vestiges of the column preceding, from an apparently non-extant 
hexameter or elegiac poem. A clue to the subject of the passage is probably to be found 
in 1. 2 apv7]8aa{. According to the statement of Clearchus ap. Aelian, Nai. Antm. xii. 34, 
apirqU was the name of the Argive festival held in honour of Linus : eV 8e rat? rjiiepaLs as 
Ka\ov(TLv dpvrjiSa^ ol avrot {sc. ^Apyfioi) . . . Several Other words occur which support the hypo- 
thesis that the lines refer to the legend of Linus. apveio<i in 1. i (so rather than Apyeios) con- 
firms the reading apvyfiaai in the following verse, while Argos is mentioned in 1. 21. iraiBo^ovcj 
in 1. 16 is a suitable epithet of the king Crotopus, who is said by Conon c. 19 (cf Ovid, 
Jb. 573-4) to have put to death his daughter Psamathe, the mother {jjnqTepa, 1. 19) of Linus. 
TrXayKTvv in 1. 12, a word unknown to the lexica, may well refer to the wanderings of 
Crotopus, who as a punishment had to leave his kingdom and founded Tripodiscium. 
Pausanias says (i. 43. 7 ; cf. Ovid, lb. 575-6) that it was Coroebus who was driven from 
Argos ; but 7raiSo(^ovw indicates that the version of the myth found in Conon, /. c, was here 
reproduced. On the recto are parts of a few lines from the top of a column of accounts 
concerning land, written probably towards the end of the first or early in the second 
century. The literary text on the verso, which is in an irregular uncial hand of medium 
size, does not appear to be much posterior, and may be referred to the first half of the 
second century. A high stop is apparently used at the end of 1. 3.

The following small fragment of a lyric poem appears to be novel. Only the ends 
of a few lines are preserved, written in well-formed uncials of the oval type, and dating 
from the latter part of the second century perhaps more probably than from the third. 
A high stop is the only lection sign which occurs.

Fayiim. 2o-i x 13-8 cm. Second century. 

Remains of two columns containing lyric stanzas. In the first column two groups 
of four verses, distinguished by a space left below the fourth line as well as by a hori- 
zontal stroke under the final word, are followed by another group of five lines, the last 
of which is considerably shorter than the rest ; while Col. ii begins with a series of ten 
verses. Lines 3-4 are put into the mouth of a woman, who complains of having been 
deserted ; and probably the whole of the first column at least is a monody of the same 
kind as the ' Maiden's Lament ' in P. Grenf. I. i, described by Wilamowitz as a Hilarodia 
(Gott. Nachr. 1896, p. 230). In the present case the lover has been carried off to fight as 
a gladiator (11. i, 7), a plight from which the forlorn girl apparently proposes to release him 
by means of bribes. Whether Col. ii is the continuation of the same theme is uncertain, 
though likely. Col. i being the commencement of the piece. The metre seems to be Ionic, 
as in the erotic poem from Marisa discussed by CrOnert and WUnsch in Rhein. Museum, 
Ixiv, pp. 433 sqq., and perhaps also in P. Oxy. 219, the singular lament for a lost cock. 
Wilamowitz has emphasized the fact that Ionia was the home of this class of poetry (/. c. 
pp. 227 sqq.). The date of composition can be fixed fairly closely, on the one hand by 
the occurrence of the word yiop^iWcov [mirmtllo) which points to the Imperial period, on 
the other by palaeographical considerations. The text is written on the verso of the 
papyrus in a cursive hand, upright and rather large, which appears to belong to the earlier 
part of the second century. A correction from a different pen occurs in 1. i. The recto 
is occupied by a taxing-account relating to the Arsinoite nome. 

I add below the transcript a restoration of 11. 1-12 kindly supplied exempli gratia by 
Prof Gilbert Murray, to whom I am otherwise indebted in connexion with this papyrus.

14. This line is higher up than the first line of Col. i, and perhaps the columns should not be regarded as 
complete at the top ; the recto, however, suits though it does not necessitate this view. 

15. Kvva followed at a short interval by Ti]pa[ suggests a possible reference in these lines to Heracles 
and Cerberus. 

16. COMEDY. 

Harit. 264 X 8-5 cm. Late second century. Plate 5. 

A strip of papyrus containing the ends of a column of iambic lines evidently from a 
comedy, though neither the play nor its author seems to be determinable. From a palaeo- 
graphical point of view, however, the fragment has some importance. The manuscript 
was an unusually sumptuous one, both in its scale and calligraphy. There is a very 




broad margin of from 7-5 to 8 cm. both above and below the column, which numbers 
twenty lines, written in large and fine upright uncials. The hand is extremely similar 
to that of P. Oxy. 661 (IV, Plate V), and like it can fortunately be dated with some 
accuracy, since the verso is inscribed with a letter to Heroninus (cf. e. g. P. Flor. 9, 
introd.), written in the third year (of Gallienus), i. e. a.d. 255-256. A manuscript so elaborate 
would probably not be quickly destroyed, and hence the text on the recto can hardly 
be later than about the year 215 and may well belong, as there was reason to suppose 
that P. Oxy. 661 belonged, to the latter part of the second century. Other examples 
of this so-called biblical type on papyrus may be seen in P. Oxy. 25 (I, Plate III) and 
867 (VI, Plate I) ; it is indeed not uncommon, and that it came into vogue so early as, 
at any rate, the beginning of the third century is noteworthy. Two accents, a mark 
of elision, and a high stop occur, all of which are perhaps more likely to be due to 
the corrector to whom is attributed the marginal insertion opposite 1. i, than to the 
original scribe. The occurrence in the letter on the verso of the name Heroninus as 
addressee shows that this papyrus, like 57, came from Harit (Theadelphia) in the 
Faylim; cf. P. Fay. 133, &c.

I. In the marginal adscript the m is written rather above the line, probably indicating ibw{y). The curved 
mark preceding awas is a sign used in supplying an omission (cf. e. g. P. Oxy. i6, iii. 3, 656. 139), or making 
a rectification (cf. e.g. P. Oxy. 844. 495), in the text; the words avras ibiivweie presumably intended to be the 
commencement of the verse.

Hibeh. Frag, i 5-6 x 8-8 cm. Third century B. C. 

These small fragments from the cartonnage of a mummy are no doubt to be recognized 
as belonging to the same MS. as P. Hibeh 5 and P. Grenf. II. 8 (b). Like those two papyri, 
they contain remains of a comedy, and are written in a hand of just the same kind ; 


moreover on the verso of Frag. 2 occur a few lines of explanations of epic words or 
phrasesj like those on the verso of P. Hibeh 5 Frag. (a). But no satisfactory combination 
has resulted, and the fragments are too small to throw fresh light upon the disputed 
question of the character and authorship of the play (Leo, Hermes, xli, pp. 629 sqq. ; 
Blass, Rhein. Mus. Ixii, pp. 102 sqq.). Frag. 2, and apparently Frag, i, both come from 
tops of columns, while Frag. 3 is from the bottom of a column.

A small complete sheet of papyrus containing six hexameter lines addressed to

century ; the papyrus was bought together with several cursive documents from 
Eshmunen (Hermopolis), some of which are dated in the year a.d. 397, and is not 
likely to be very far removed from them in date. A single high stop occurs in 1. 3 ; 
below the last line is drawn an interlacing border. 

To what period the composition of these verses is to be assigned is less closely 
determinable. Epithalamia can be traced back as far as Sappho, to whom Catullus 
seems to have been indebted in his well-known sixty-first and sixty-second poems. For 
a complete Greek specimen, however, it is necessary to come down as far as the 
'EXc'i^? 'Einda\dixLo<s of Theocritus (xviii), in which, according to the scholia, use was made 
of a poem by Stesichorus on the same subject. The lines before us may have been 
extracted from some similar product of the Hellenistic or even the Roman epoch. The 
sentiment as well as the phraseology, in which Homeric echoes are noticeable, is of 
a conventional character. Some metrical laxity is seen in the scansion of KaC as a long 
syllable before a vowel in 1. 6.

8.8xio.2cm. Second century B. c. Plate 6. 

A small fragment containing the upper parts of two columns, written in a good- 
sized clear semi-cursive hand which can be assigned with security to the second century 
B.C., and with probability to about the middle of the century; the hand is very similar 
for instance to that of P. Brit. Mus. 1200, of either 192 or 168 b.c, and may also be com- 
pared with those of P. Brit. Mus. 44 of 161 e.g. and 879 of 123 b.c. (see the Plates). 
Sentences are divided off by a paragraphus, which in 1. 21 is accompanied by a short 
blank space within the line to mark the position of the pause. 

Of the two columns partially remaining, the first, which has only a few letters from 
the ends of the lines, is practically useless, but the second, so far as it goes, is in a fair state 
of preservation, and is of an interesting, if tantalizing, nature. After an imperfect sentence 
(11. 12-15) referring to the colonization of a tract of country, of doubtful identity, mention is 
made (11. 16-21) of the Spartan ephor Chilon and the king Anaxandrides in connexion 
with the suppression of the Greek tyrannies, among which those of Aeschines at Sicyon and 
Hippias at Athens are named (11. 21-3). Unluckily the reading of this important passage is 
not quite certain ; a detailed discussion of the possibilities is given in the notes below. No 
manipulation of the text, however, can remove the novelty of the statement ; our meagre 
information has not hitherto credited either Chilon or Anaxandrides with any active part 
in the expulsion of tyrants. Chilon especially is a very shadowy figure. Herodotus 
makes him a contemporary of the father of Pisistratus (i. 59), and he was perhaps the 
grandfather of the Chilon mentioned in vi. 65. That this latter, who is not known to have 
been ephor, is the person here meant seems improbable, though that hypothesis might 
harmonize better with the chronology of 11. 21 sqq. (see below). Diogenes Laertius 
(i. 3. i) puts Chilon's ephorate in the 55th Olympiad (560-557 B.C.), adding that Pamphila 
and Sosicrates assigned it to the year of the archonship of Euthydemus, i. e. 556 b.c If 
so, it coincided with the beginning of the reign of Anaxandrides, which is placed on 
satisfactory evidence about 560 b.c. But Dum [Entstehung des Spartan. Ephorats) expresses 
much scepticism regarding these dates, and holds (p. 25) that Chilon's floruit cannot be 


fixed within a period of fifty years. According to Diogenes, again, Chilon ir/awros elar- 
TjyrjcraTO icj^opov? toi? /SacriXeCcrt TTapat,evyvvvai' Xa.Tvpo<: 8e AvKovpyov. This is interpreted 
by some as meaning that he raised the power of the ephors to the level of that of the kings 
(Dum, op. cit. ; Busolt, Gr. Gesch. i, p. 147), by others that the ephorate was actually held 
to be his institution (Niese in Pauly-Wissowa, Real-Encycl. s.v. Chilon). In any case 
it seems that Chilon's period of office was an important landmark in Lacedaemonian 
history ; and if Meyer is right in attributing to him a large share in shaping the policy of 
Sparta in the sixth century (Gesch. des Altertums, ii, p. 766), there is no reason why its 
anti-tyrant tendency should not have been inaugurated by him. The story told by Herodotus 
of his advice to the father of Pisistratus either not to marry or, if he had a son, to 
disown him, may thus acquire a fresh significance. 

The relation of the following clause (11. 21-3) to what precedes is not quite clear, 
owing to the loss of its conclusion ; the natural view is that the tyrants mentioned 
were among those whose suppression was due to Chilon or Anaxandrides. But in the 
case of Hippias, at any rate, this would be incorrect, since he was expelled by Cleomenes, 
the son and successor of Anaxandrides (Hdt. v. 64) ; and if our author held a different 
opinion, he was doubtless mistaken. Perhaps, however, the sentence was continued in 
a way that would avoid such a discrepancy from the accepted chronology. A more impor- 
tant point is the reference to Aeschines, tyrant of Sicyon. The sole authority for this 
ultimate successor to the rule of Cleisthenes has hitherto been the well-known passage 
in Plutarch's De Herodoti Malignitate, c. 21, in which a list is given of the tyrants who 
were put down by Sparta : Kin//eXt8as /xei' i^i^akov Ik KoptvOov koX 'A/XTr/aa/cia?, Ik Se Na|^ou 
AuySa/xiv, ef 'A0r}va)v Se rous Ileicrto-TpaTou TratSas, eK 8e SiKuaJvos AX(r^lvT)v ktK. In the 
absence of other evidence this statement of Plutarch has been regarded with a certain 
amount of suspicion (cf e. g. E. Meyer, Gesch. des Altertums, ii, p. 629); it is now seen to 
represent a tradition at least two centuries earlier, though whether the work of which the 
papyrus is a fragment was Plutarch's actual source is of course uncertain. 

Of the character of this work it is hazardous to say much more than that it was 
historical ; and even that statement needs to be made with some circumspection. Among 
the papyri published by M. Th. Reinach is a small fragment (No. 5) which contains a few 
fines relating to /fi^apio-is,* and which, judged from the facsimile, is in the same handwriting 
as 18 ; since, moreover, another of Reinach's literary fragments is certainly to be connected 
with a Rylands papyrus (cf; 21 introd.), it is at first sight obvious, in spite of the diversity 
of subject, to assume that P. Reinach 5 and 18 are also from a single MS. That hypothesis, 
however, becomes much less attractive when it is added that, according to information 
kindly supplied by Dr. Schubart, P. Reinach 5 is in the same hand as the two pieces pub- 
lished in Berl. Klassikertexte, ii. 3 ( = P. Berlin 9869), which evidently deal with a similar 
topic. That the Berlin and Reinach fragments have a common origin is therefore clear ; 
but it becomes increasingly difficult to establish any connexion between them and 18, and it 
appears preferable to suppose that the latter, though written by the same scribe, belongs to 
a different treatise. Additional colour is lent to this theory by a further similarity of the

referring the two texts to the same writer. Apparently, then, a singular chance has pre- 
served parts of three distinct manuscripts from the pen of one copyist.

12-15. It is unfortunate that the person and locality referred to in this passage are not more clearly 
indicated. What follows rather suggests that the person was some tyrant or his agent, otherwise a connecting 
link seems difficult to obtain. Polycrates of Samos made acquisitions on the mainland (cf. Hdt. iii. 39 (rv\vas 
fifv hri T&v irqa-atv cLpaiprJKff, iroWa be Koi rrjs riTreCpov acrrea), but eKTi,(T[(v is not the word that would be expected 
of his operations. Can the scene be the coast of Acarnania or Epirus ? This, however, is not very suitable 
from a chronological point of view, for the Corinthian colonization of that region was mainly effected by the 
illegitimate sons of Cypselus, long before the time of Anaxandrides (1. 18) ; though it is noticeable that 
Plutarch, in the important passage from the De Herodoti Malignitate quoted in the introduction above, mentions 
the expulsion of the Cypselids from Ambracia. 

In 1. 15 the IS of vjwmpetos is not above suspicion, and that reading makes the first four letters of the line 
somewhat cramped ; it is also not quite clear whether the word was spelled with or without an e. 

17, The overwritten p is small and its tail faint, but to suppose that it is no letter but merely a blot is 
not a very satisfactory hypothesis ; moreover, if the p be rejected, apparently the only word practically 
possible is <TTa<T[ia\<Tas, and though this would give a good sense with Ai;a^ai^8pi8rj[t in place of Ava^avhpihr][s re, 
the vestige following o-to is inconsistent with o- but well suits the cross-bar of a r. It may be added that 
Ava^][i would give a rather short line ; the termination of the verb in 1. 21 is too doubtful to found any 
argument upon. Hence o-Tpar[jjy»j Jo-ay or <TTpaT[ev](Tas is the most suitable reading : it may be connected either 
with XiAcor, as in the text, or, if tc be dropped, with Ava^avhpihr][i. 

20. The second v of T[vpa]vvi.has seems to have been corrected from 8 ; the scribe perhaps still had 
kva^avhpi(n\s in his head.

7-2 X IO-8 cm. Second century. Plate 6. 

This small but interesting fragment, of which the text has already been printed in the 
Oxford edition of Theopompus and Cratippus, belongs to an epitome of the 47th Book 
of the former's Philippica, as is expressly stated in the heading of the first column ; 
the name of Theopompus was also written as a title by a second hand upon the back. 
Though the figure 40 is a restoration the number of the book is certain, being not only 
suited to the contents as given in the papyrus, but also directly confirmed by the occurrence 
in 1. 10 of the Thracian city Angissus, which according to Stephanus of Byzantium was 
mentioned in the 47th Book (s. v. 'Ky7]cr(T6<; : cf. note on 1. 10). Concerning the contents of 
that book of the Philippica the explicit evidence has hitherto been confined to three bare 
geographical references, the Thracian Angissus already cited, Astacus as a Byzantme dis- 
trict, for which the authority is again Stephanus, and Cabyle, another Thracian town 
spoken of by Harpocration ; see Theopompus, Frag. 211 (a), Oxford edition. From these 
data it could be inferred that the book dealt with Macedonian operations in Thrace 
(cf MilUer, F. H. G. i, p. 319), while the allusion to Byzantium might suggest that the year 
in question was 340 b.c, which witnessed Philip's unsuccessful sieges of Byzantium and 
Perinthus. That this was in fact the period to which the 47th Book related is now definitely 
proved by the papyrus. Column i begins by mentioning the outbreak of war between the 
Macedonian king and Athens, and its immediate cause, the sieges of the two great Hellenic 
cities on the northern shore of the Propontis. The remainder of this column is unfortunately 
broken away, and what is left of the next reports operations carried on in the north-west 
of Thrace by the Macedonian generals Antipater and Parmenion. They were, apparently, 
actively engaged with the T^Tpa^aoplTai, a Bessie people living in the neighbourhood of 
Philip's recent foundation Philippopolis ; and Angissus, a city probably in the vicinity, 
was captured. Of these facts the latter is novel ; the former has to be brought into con- 
nexion with Polyaenus, Strateg. iv. 4. i, where a stratagem of Antipater against the 
TeTpaxfoplrai is described, — an anecdote of which the source is now sufficiently evident ; 
cf. note on 11. 8-9. This activity on the part of the Macedonians in the interior of Thrace 
seems significant. Frontinus (Strateg. i. 4. 13) has described a device by which Philip, after 
his ill success at Byzantium, opened the way from the Black Sea for his fleet : he wrote 
a fictitious letter, we are told, to Antipater that Thrace was in rebellion and his military 
posts there were surrounded, and contrived that this should fall into the hands of the 



Athenians, who thereupon retired to the Chersonese. Perhaps the statements of this sup- 
posed letter possessed a speciousness in being not so very far removed from the truth. It 
is Hkely enough that the unwonted reverses sustained by the Macedonian army in 340 B.C. 
encouraged the newly subjugated Thracian tribes to hostile movements ; and Philip may 
possibly have found it necessary to take measures for their suppression even while the 
sieges of Perinthus and Byzantium were still in progress. 

This epitome is precisely of the same kind as the P. Oxy. 665, a summary of events in 
Sicily, and no doubt both papyri represent tables of contents prefixed to the detailed his- 
torical work, like those which precede the several books of Diodorus. As in P. Oxy. 665, 
the successive items are distinguished by the slight protrusion of their first lines into the 
left margin ; paragraphi, however, are not employed. The script, a well-formed round 
uncial of medium size and somewhat ornate character, may be assigned to about the middle 
of the second century. Vertical strokes are commonly finished off" with small apices, and 
the broad base with which the v-shaped upsilon is supplied is also noticeable. No stops or 
other lection signs occur. One correction has been introduced by a second hand, perhaps 
the same as that which wrote in cursive the title on the back of Col. i, — an indication that 
that column was, as would be expected, the first of the roll.

substantive like eXeyxos. 

4-7- The supplement [A6rivai.oi\s scarcely admits of doubt, though there is a slight looseness of statement : 
the outbreak of war with Athens followed the investment of Perinthus and Byzantium, and there was no 
formal rupture till the siege of the latter had been begun (Philochorus frag. 135, Diodorus xvi. 77). The 
occurrence, however, was an outstanding event which may well have been given a prominence in the opening 



chapters of this book, before its causes and circumstances were narrated in detail. Hence 'origin' seems 
a better translation of apxv than commencement. It is noticeable that there is no mention of Selymbria, 
though this absence will of course not justify the inference that the assault on that town, mentioned in some 
documents of very doubtful authenticity in the De Corona, did not take place. 

For the dative [A6rjvai.oi]i cf. e. g. the abstract of Diod. xi iroKeixos 'Ptofxatou -npos AUoKavovs. In 1. 6 only 
the tips remain of the letters ]vtio[, but tl are fairly secure, and the following letter was a round one. The 
supplement [viroKio] is a trifle long for the lacuna, in which a letter less would suffice ; there are, however, 
considerable variations elsewhere in the size of the writing. 

8-9. Cf. 11. i3sqq. The genitive not improbably depends on some such substantive as dirooroo-ts. Only

during the campaign to which the papyrus refers, and there can be little doubt that the authority for it was 
Theopompus. The passage of the seventh Book of Strabo cited by Steph. Byz. is lost.

of Stephanus, 'Ayrja-iros, is correct it is impossible to determine ; the confusion of FI and H is one of the easiest 
of errors. Livy, who describes the town as Macedonian, has Agassae (xliv. 7, xlv. 27), which favours the 
spelling of Stephanus ; but pending further evidence it is safer to follow the earlier authority and adopt

Frag. 3 13x7 cm. First century B. c. Plate 6. 

The hand in which these fragments of a prose work are written is a good-sized and 
rather ornamental uncial, which may be dated to about the end of the Ptolemaic period; it 
has a general similarity to that of P. Oxy. 659, but is characterized by superior finish and 
regularity. Sh ort blank spaces, in one instance probably accompanied by a medial point, 
mark a pause ; a rough breathing is apparently inserted in 1. 19. The sign for filling up 
a short line tak s the form of a short-topped z. Some supporting strips, which the thinness 
of the papyrus . endered desirable, adhere to the verso. 

The relatioi ; of the three pieces surviving is doubtful. Frag. 2, containing the first 
letters of a few 1: nes, may well be the continuation of the second column of Frag, i ; but 
whether Frag. 3 i)elongs to the same or to the preceding column, or is unconnected with 
either, is quite uncertain. This last fragment gives a connected passage which serves 
to define to ^ome extent the nature and date of the treatise. Its subject is, broadly, of 



a political nature, and the use of the second person points to a dialogue or an epistolary 
composition. The person addressed is advised to be warned by the example of the 
Persians not to deplete the treasury by providing for military forces out of revenue, 
the alternative presumably being to support them by local levies. Since the Persian 
empire is spoken of as a thing of the past, the treatise must be at least subsequent to the 
conquests of Alexander. Who then is the ruler here introduced, and who can the author 
be? The conditions might be satisfied by such a work as the nroXe/xaios of Demetrius 
Phalereus, which in Ostermann's opinion [De Demetrii Phal. vita, ii, p. 21) was more 
probably a dialogue than a life of the first Ptolemy ; though there would be difficulties 
in crediting a well-informed writer with the novel view taken concerning the Persian 
military administration and its financial effects.

29-46. ' For if you try like the Persian king to provide for the soldiers out of revenues, your surplus of 
the wealth will be quite small, as may be clearly perceived from the sums left by the Persians ; for in this way, 
though they were for a long period rulers of Asia and possessed themselves of all the wealth amassed by the 
Medes and Assyrians . . .' 

29 sqq. It is strange that an example should be found in Persia of needless expenditure of revenue upon 
military forces. This is not at all the ordinary view of Persian administration : ' Man sieht,' says E. Meyer, Gesch. 
des Altertums, iii, p. 89, ' wie wenig Geld verhaltnismassig fiir Reichszwecke gebraucht wurde. Fast nur in 
Kriegszeiten wird es zu grosseren Geldausgaben gekommen sein ' ; cf. Heeren, Asiatic Nations, i, p. 266, Grote x, 
p. 121. Perhaps, however, it was the periods of actual war which the writer had in view. His implication that 
the treasure which fell into the hands of the Macedonians was comparatively small is also remarkable ; 
according to the statements of Diodorus and others the spoil amounted to upwards of 180,000 talents, or some 
60 millions sterling (cf. Meyer, op. cit. pp. 89-90).

Frag. I 9-9 X 7-1 cm. First century B. c. Plate 7. 

These five fragments from a treatise on the nervous system of the human body 
belong to the same papyrus as P. Berhn 9770, which was edited by Kalbfleisch in 
Berliner Klassikertexte , iii, pp. 10 sqq. This identification was first suggested to me by 
Prof Ilberg, and a reference to the facsimile at once established it. An additional proof, 
if it were wanting, is supplied by the verso, which, as in the Berlin papyrus, contains 
some ill-preserved medical receipts,— though I cannot agree with the editor (/. c, p. 10) that 
the hand in which these are written is much like that of the recto. The latter is 
a small and neat though not very formal uncial, which is, I think, rightly referred to the 
first century b.c. ; and it may perhaps be placed early rather than late in that century. 


Yet another fragment from the same treatise has recently been recognized by Kalbfleisch 
in P. Reinach 2, which he combines with P. Berhn 9770 A. vi. M. Reinach acquired 
that small piece at Gizeh ; 21, on the other hand, was purchased in the Faytim ; where 
the Berlin fragments were obtained is not stated. The ultimate source of the papyrus 
remains quite uncertain. 

The previously published fragments consist for the most part of the tops and central 
portions of columns, while 21 includes several bottoms, which ought to be some of the 
missing bases of the columns at Berlin. Probably they actually are ; but attempts at 
combination have so far proved disappointing. One factor which might assist in this 
task has hardly been made the most of by the Berlin editor. In the left margin opposite 
1. 3 of P. 9770 A. vi the numeral 2 occurs, and at B. iv. 15 there is a T in a similar position. 
These must be stichometrical figures (1800 and 1900 ; cf P. Oxy. 852. Frag. 25, note), and 
if they have been rightly read, A. vi would be the top of either B. ii or B. iii. I am 
informed by Dr. Schubart, who examined the original at my request, that the former of 
these alternatives is excluded by the writing on the verso. Apparently then A. vi should 
be combined with B. iii. That hypothesis involves a rather tall column, though, since the 
writing is small and the lines are closely set, the height would not exceed reasonable limits. 

In two respects especially the new fragments throw some further light upon the nature 
of this treatise. The first three lines of Frag. 2. ii are divided off from what follows by 
a short blank space, which suggests that they formed some kind of heading ; and this 
view is confirmed by the occurrence in P. 9770 B. vi. 4 of a title, irpoa-^vcri';. The 
significant words airopLa and aTTopfnai in Frag. 2. ii. 2 and 6 serve to indicate that the heading 
formulated some disputable question concerning the functions of the motor and sensory 
nerves, which question the writer proceeded to discuss. It is thus clear that the treatise 
was subdivided into several definite sections, distinguished by particular titles. Secondly, 
in Frag. 5 the writer has passed from the domain of physiology proper to that of 
psychology, and speaks of some view involving the Platonic distinction between Xoyio-/ios, 
dvp.6<i, and iinOvfiia. No such transition is found in the fragments at Berlin. 

The problem of the identity of the author does not seem to be brought much nearer 
to a solution. His period, at any rate, is fixed within fairly narrow limits, on the one hand 
by the date of the papyrus, on the other by the recognition of a distinction between motor 
and sensory nerves which, as Kalbfleisch has pointed out, shows that he cannot be older 
than Herophilus. Wellmann in Pauly-Wissowa, Real-Encyd. vi. 904, suggests that the 
treatise is by Eudemus, a younger contemporary of Herophilus and Erasistratus. In that 
circle of famous anatomists the writer is most naturally sought ; but at present there 
appears to be little reason for selecting one name rather than another.

Behnesa. 19-2 x 7-4 cm. First century. Plate 5. 

The following fragment gives a brief narrative of events at Troy subsequent to the 
death of Achilles. Both the beginnings and ends of the lines are lost throughout, but 
the extent of the lacunae, which are evidently considerable, can be fairly gauged from 
a comparison of 11. 7-9 and 10-14, where a minimum loss of from 14 to 16 letters is 
indicated for the first 13 lines ; in the lines following the gaps are still larger. It is 
desirable not to exceed the minimum in order to avoid increasing the breadth of the 
column, which, in any case, will be rather broader than is usual. How the supple- 
ments are to be divided between the lines is of course uncertain ; the arrangement 
adopted below is quite arbitrary, and several of the restorations are only made exempli 

The events described in the papyrus are as follows : — i. (11. i-io) Expedition of 
Odysseus and Diomedes to the Trojan citadel in quest of the Palladium, the removal 
of which had been declared by Helenus to be one of the conditions of the fall of Troy ; 
they kill among others Corybus (Coroebus), son of Mygdon, who had come to assist the 
Trojans, and return to the camp with the Palladium. Joy of the Greeks and dis- 
comfiture of the Trojans. 2. (11. 11-14) Voyage of Odysseus and Phoenix to Scyros to 
fetch Neoptolemus, who returns with them and receives from Odysseus the arms of 
Achilles. 3. (11. 16 sqq.) Arrival of Eurypylus, son of Telephus, from Mysia, bringing 
aid to the Trojans. These subjects were all treated in the Little Iliad of Lesches or 
Lescheos, though not apparently in the same order. According to the summary of 


Proclus (cf. note on 1. i) the capture of the Palladium by Odysseus and Diomedes occurred 
after the arrival and death of Eurypylus; and that Proclus is correctly presenting the 
sequence of the Little Iliad is evident from the close agreement with him of the Epitome of 
Apollodorus, who, though he had other sources than the Little Iliad, was at this point 
obviously summarizing that work (cf. note on 1. i). Another peculiarity of the fragment 
is the time and occasion of the death of Coroebus, who according to Virgil, Aen. ii. 
341, 425, and Quintus Smyrnaeus xiii. 168 sqq. was slain during the sack of Troy. But we 
know from Pausan. x. 27. i (cf. note on 1. 4) that the author of the Little Iliad differed 
from the common account in attributing the death of Coroebus to Diomedes instead of 
to Neoptolemus (Virgil assigns it to Peneleus), and it is possible that he also connected 
it, as the papyrus does, with the seizure of the Palladium. The real divergence lies in 
the precedence of the latter event, apart from which the new text is nearly allied in 
matter, as it is also in manner, to the summaries of Proclus and Apollodorus. There are, 
however, other traces of a version in which the capture of the Palladium was put earlier. 
Ovid, Metamorph. xiii. 1-381, makes it precede the dispute between Odysseus and Ajax 
for the arms of Achilles ; in Tzetzes, Post-Horn. 509-17, it follows on the death of Ajax, 
and in Dictys v. 14 Ajax and Odysseus quarrel over the Palladium instead of the armour. 
Their chronology is thus analogous to that of the papyrus ; but what is the ultimate 
source of this form of the story is quite obscure. 

The text is written in rather large uncials upon the verso of an account dating 
probably from the latter part of the first century B.C. Early characteristics are evident 
also in the uncial hand, which is unlikely to be posterior to the first few decades of the 
century following. No lection signs occur. A pause is denoted by a short blank space 
in 1. 14 ; the other intervals are less clearly marked.

Apollodorus in the passage quoted on 1. i. According to Quintus Smyrn. vii. 169-417 and Tzetzes, 
Post-Horn. 531, Diomedes was the companion of Odysseus on this occasion. In Proclus' argument of the 
Little Iliad cited above, as in Homer, X 508, only Odysseus is mentioned ; but it would be too much to infer 
from the silence of Proclus that Phoenix was not coupled with Odysseus in the Little Iliad.

6-5 X T5-4 cm. Second century. 

This fragment contains the ends of two columns from an epitome of the Odyssey, 
written in round upright uncials which appear to date from about the middle of the 
second century. A stop in the central position in 1. 10 and a rough breathing in 1. 11 
may well be original, but the supplement of an omitted word at the end of the latter line 
looks like a subsequent addition. What remains of Col. i relates to the third book, of 
Col. ii to the sixth ; hence it is probable that Col. i was actually the first of the epitome, 
which, if the space devoted to the successive books was fairly constant, could have 
been completed in eight columns. The books were treated separately, and at the head 
of the several abstracts stood the first verse of the book concerned (see 11. 9-10), preceded 
no doubt by the book's number. There is little in common between the wording of 
these abstracts and that of the imodea-cLs in the extant scholia.

appropriate (cf. y 331 sqq.), but Ad[r]\va]v does not fill the lacuna, and with A6[q\vai the difficulty is to find 
another substantive short enough. It is not at all likely that Ad[ri\vai.a.]v was written or that AdT]vas was

11x7-7 cm. 

First century. Plate 8. 

Remains of two columns of a Homeric commentary, written in a medium-sized 
semi-uncial hand which is probably not later than about the middle of the first century 
A. D. A single high stop occurs in 1. 16, and a pause before a quotation is marked by 
a short blank space in 1. 28. On the verso is part of a demotic account.

Eustathius ad loc, is cited, and is followed by an allusion to Apollonius and another 
person, though whether as supporters of the preceding view or of a different opinion is 
uncertain. The same passage is still under consideration in the upper part of Col. ii.

The commentary was thus on an extensive scale, pointing, Hke the palaeographical 
evidence, to a comparatively early period ; and in view of the verbal coincidences in 11. 12- 
16 with Schol. A it seems not improbable that the writer may have been Aristonicus 
or Didymus. As for the Apollonius who is quoted as an authority in 1. 17, Dyscolus is 
excluded by the date of the papyrus, the compiler of the Lexicon may be dismissed 
on similar grounds, while the son of Molon was perhaps hardly of sufficient importance 
to be given so much space. There remains Apollonius of Rhodes, who is known to have 
interested himself in the criticism of Homer and Hesiod, and is supposed to be referred 
to in the extant scholia at A 4, 97, t 177. Mr. Allen remarks that exegesis of the fanciful 
character described would be more natural in one of the older grammarians.

Behnesa. j6-i x ^S cm. Second century. 

This fragment of a Homeric lexicon is contained on the verso of a narrow strip from 
the bottom of a column, and is written in well-formed upright uncials of the oval type, 
dating probably from the latter half of the second century ; on the recto there are some 
scanty remains of a cursive document belonging to the reign of Trajan. The lexicon 
is of the same class as P. Amh. 18, and is arranged in just the same way, the lemmata 
being made to protrude slightly into the left margin. It is somewhat fuller than the 
so-called Scholia Didymi, to which, like P. Amh. 18, it stands in close relationship ; 
cf also P. Amh. 19. So far as it goes the text is confined to the bare equivalent of the 
less obvious words and phrases, but the fragment is too short to justify the inference 
that other explanatory matter was entirely absent.

Behnesa. 11x9-9 cm. First century. Plate 8. 

The following fragment of a Homeric glossary is written in an upright and clear 
cursive hand which may be assigned with confidence to the first century a.d. The 
text is arranged in paragraphs, a new line being begun at each new Homeric word ; 
and these words, as is usual in such cases, are made to project by two or three letters 
into the left margin. No lectional signs of any kind occur. On the verso is part of 
an account, which may itself fall within the first century. 

It is not so rash as it may at first sight perhaps appear to attribute such a small fragment 
as the present to a work so shadowy as the glossary of Apion. There is extant a short 
alphabetical vocabulary, bearing the name of Apion, which was printed by Sturz from 
a Darmstadt MS. in his edition of the Etymologicum Gudtanum (pp. 601-10). Its genuine- 
ness was denied by Lehrs [Quaest. Ep. p. 33) and others ; in 1885, however, A. Kopp {Hermes, 
XX, pp. 161 sqq.) maintained that though greatly altered by epitomizing processes it never- 
theless represented an authentic work. Kopp's acute criticism failed to convince L. Cohn 
(Pauly-Wissowa, Real-Encycl. s. v. Apion), but is now thoroughly vindicated. The essential 
and peculiar principle of the Darmstadt glossary (D) is an enumeration of the meaning 
of Homeric words which are used in more than one sense, with illustrative quotations. In 
the earlier portion this method is to be clearly recognized ; later on it is obscured by the 
omission of the quotations and by other compressions. Now the principle of D is 
precisely that of the fragment before us. In the latter the successive words are regularly 
followed (i) by a figure indicating the number of meanings borne by the word in the 
Homeric poems, (2) a specification of the meanings, (3) illustrative quotations from the 

Iliad and Odyssey ; e. g. [ovei.po]<i jS- tov Oeov koX to hC avTov dia[fj.a- orav fikv TOV Oeov, 
fidcTK Wi, ovXe Ovetpe, OTav Se to 8t' avTov 6eap.a, ws ol iuap[ye<; oveipov in]€crcrvT0 (11. 7— lO). 

Let us compare a couple of articles in D : dXand^ai, Suo. to iKvopOrja-at., w? 'iXCov e'faXa-

d/AciySe. The similarity is striking : practically the only difference is that the illustrations 
here follow immediately the meaning, an alteration readily explained as due to the 
desire for brevity ; ' occasionally the arrangement of D is actually the same as that of 
the papyrus, e. g. apyvptov 8- Tr]v vXrfv, koL to koKov ktX. • . . TTjv fiev vXrjv, apyvptov xpv- 
creoKTiv aopTT^pecrcnv aprip6<;- to koKov, kKvOL p-ev kt\. Had the papyrus contained words 
beginning with a instead of o the affinity might have been still more evident. Of the three 
which occur, o/i^aXo's, ovei.po<;, and ottXqv, only the last is represented in D, the other two 
having been omitted probably as of minor importance. The article ouetpo?, it may be 
observed, is quite in the manner of D, where there are ten instances of such names, 
e. g. aTT)- TTjP Baipova, Koi rrjv /3\d/3r]v r) S' "Att) a-dtvaprj ktK. With regard tO ottKov, D 
leaves out the quotations, but the same meanings are distinguished as in the papyrus, 
though in rather different language (cf note on 11. 11-18). 

The so-called 'Attiwi/os rXwo-o-at 'Op-qpiKai have fared ill at the hand of the epitomizer, 
as the lexicon of Apollonius, to a less degree, is plainly shown by the Bodleian fragment 
{Class. Rev., Nov. 1897, pp. 390 sqq.) to have done; but so far from being toto colore recen- 
tiores, as Lehrs held, they are proved to be based on a scheme identical with that of 
a glossary current in the first century. That glossary may be earlier than Apion ; it can 
hardly be later. In these circumstances a strong presumption arises in favour of the 
reputed authorship of D. The common-sense view is that tradition is once more up- 
held, and that the mediaeval glossary is ultimately, what it professes to be, the work 
of Apion, of which the papyrus offers a specimen in its original form.

20-8 X ^6-4. cm. Third century. 

Three columns, inscribed on the verso of 43 in a legible cursive hand of the latter 
part of the third century. The columns are imperfect at the bottom, but the loss is 
no doubt trifling, since in 43, where the lines are closer together, the lacunae at the 
ends of the columns amount to only three lines. Column i, which is preceded by a 
broad margin and surmounted by the symbol for the moon, was evidently the first of 
the treatise, and it appears not unlikely that Col. iii was the last, though on this side 
the margin is quite narrow. That column terminates with a table of the Roman em- 
perors from Commodus, with their regnal years, the last name before the break being that 
of Gallus (a.d. 251-3), and the palaeographical evidence indicates that the table was not 
carried down much further. A slight compression of the lines in this table also suggests 
that the scribe was concerned to include the whole of it within the limits of the column. 
There is a considerable use of abbreviation ; the more noticeable forms are k for /cai 
(in 1. 53 k), irp (to which 9 is sometimes added) in the form of a monogram, with the tt either 
square or semicircular, for irpoaOe';, op also as a monogram for aipa and its cases, p. (o small 
and low down between the tops of the p) for polpa and cases, and ■/. for eo-ri. v at the end 
of a line is occasionally represented by a horizontal stroke above the preceding vowel. 
An isolated instance of an elision-mark is found in 1. 48, but no accents or breathings 
occur. Horizontal lines are placed over numerals, the stroke covering the entire number 
when composed of more than one figure; for convenience of printing, these lines are 
omitted in the text given below. The copyist makes a number of mistakes, and clearly 
failed in places to comprehend what he was writing; there is also reason to call in 
question the accuracy of his figures in several passages. 

The contents of the three columns are somewhat heterogeneous. Col. i and the 
greater part of Col. ii (11. 1-50) are occupied with mathematical formulae for the calculation, 
after a given number of years, of (a) the day, according to the Egyptian calendar, on 
which a certain iiroxt] occurred, and {b) the corresponding longitude and latitude, inoxn 


is the general term for a position occupied by a heavenly body ; the particular irroxn 
here meant is that of the moon in, apparently, its anomalistic revolution from perigee 
to perigee. For the solution of the problem two distinct formulae are given, a longer 
(11. 1-31) and a shorter (11. 32-50), but in neither case is the method quite clear. Apart 
from minor obscurities it is not evident why at the outset 2 years and 61 days are 
added in the first process (11. i and 3) or 92 years in the second (1. 33). Presumably 
the initial divergence is to be explained by the use of different eras as starting-points, 
and Prof Smyly, upon whose valuable annotations on this papyrus the present com- 
mentary largely depends, suggests that the era used in the first formula is that of Philip, 
the era in the second being the end of the reign of Commodus ; cf note on 1. 33. 

In 1. 51 begins a new section, which is headed irepl a-wSea-fiov. o-wSecr/ioi mean the 
moon's nodes, i. e. the points where the planet's orbit intersects the ecliptic, to which 
it is inclined at a, small angle. These points are not constant, but have a retrograde 
motion along the ecliptic ; and 11. 52 sqq. describe a method for determining the change 
of position. 

Col. iii gives the formula for finding the date of the solstices and equinoxes on the 
Egyptian calendar, starting from the observations of Ptolemy; the observations corre- 
spond closely with those of the Syntaxts Mathematica, though they are somewhat differently 
stated. This is followed by a section of the chronological Canon, which differs from 
the ordinary form in counting the years from the beginning of the reign of Augustus 
instead of from the death of Alexander, and in combining the reigns of associated 
emperors. The number of years required to produce the longer era is written at the 
side of the first row of figures 

On the other side of the papyrus in the margin between two columns of the Homeric 
text is endorsed the title 'T7ro/j,i/7?ju,a nroXejuaiou. Can this title be accepted literally? It 
is sufficiently evident that Ptolemy did not actually write Col. iii; and in the two pre- 
ceding columns there are some suspicious discrepancies from the Syntaxts Mathematica 
(cf. note on 11. 14-24), as well as the anachronism of a reference to Commodus in 1. 33. 
When to these difficulties there is added the consideration that little affinity of style is 
to be recognized between this treatise and the other works of the writer whose name 
it claims, some doubt of its authenticity will not appear groundless. Perhaps the attribu- 
tion to Ptolemy merely rests upon the use made of his observations in Col. iii, though 
it is possible that the processes set forth in Cols, i-ii were originally formulated by 
him. But ' A treatise of Ptolemy ' cannot be regarded as a strictly accurate description, 
and therefore his name has not been placed at the head of this article.

2-1 1. The operations prescribed are :— Add 2 to the complete number of years, divide the result by 25, 
multiply the remainder by 365 and the quotient by 32, then add 61 ; add together the numbers so obtained 
and divide the total, if possible, by 3031 and the remainder by 248, subtract the remainder from 303 or 248, 
and number off the final remainder from Thoth i. 

Division by 25 is a device for eliminating multiples of 3031, for if the number of Egyptian years be 
iSx+y (;r being the quotient and 7 the remainder) the number of days will be 365 {^S^+y) = 91 25^ + 365 y 
= (9093 + 32) x+'iSsy. Rejecting 9093 ;t:, which is a multiple of 3031, we have the remainder ■^ix+'^esy, 
corresponding to the rule in 11. 3-4- The elimination of 3031 and its multiple 9093 implies that these numbers 
of days were treated as lunar cycles, and as a matter of fact the moon would be in the same position 
approximately in its orbit at the beginning and end of those periods. 3031 days are equivalent to 8 years 
3 months and 21 days of the Egyptian calendar. The corresponding anomalistic numbers m the tables of 
Ptolemy, Synt. Math. (ed. Heiberg, pp. 286 sqq.), are:— 

8 years 349° 44 59 49 29 51 20 

3 months 95° 5° 54 26 47 5^ 3° 

21 days 274° 21 52 42 15 " 39 

Total ^9° Jl 46 58 Vi i 29 

This total differs by less than 2* minutes from 730° or two complete revolutions. Again, with regard to 
the third divisor 248 (1. 7), which, like 9093 and 3031, recurs in the shorter method of Col. a, a comparison 
with Ptolemy's tables gives an analogous result. This cycle is equivalent to 8 months and 8 days, for which 
the anomalistic numbers are : — 

8 months 255° 35 45 " 27 56 o 

8 days 104° 31 n 3° 22 55 52 

Total 360° 6 56 41 50 51 53 

The sum thus obtained is not quite 7 minutes in excess of one complete revolution. 

5. (Twa^os, not (ruvra^as, is the usual word; cf. e.g. 11. 35, 55, and 71. 

6. The figure T at the end of this line is meaningless. Perhaps it is a mistake for ap{ov). 

8-10. This part of the rule is obscure. (tvvU<t}xoi. must mean, as usual, the moon's nodes, but it is not 
evident why 'in the case of nodes', i.e., apparently, when the given inoxn is a node, the subtraction is to be 
from 303, and otherwise from 248. It should be noted that the difference between the two numbers, 55 days, 
is almost exactly two anomalistic months, the month consisting of 37-5545995 days. Another difficult 
reference to <ruvlecr}ioi occurs in 11. 13-14- 

lo-ii. AoiTras was written in the abbreviated form \oC at the end of 1. 10, but the second syllable was 
repeated at the beginning of 1. 1 1. huK^alO^nv means to measure off a given number of divisions from a fixed 
point on a graduated scale ; cf. e. g. Ptolemy, Introd. to npo'xe^o' Karo'i^es, p. 8 (Halma) Tbv . . . ipiO^ov 

8l€K/3dAA.OITfS (TTl TOV eTTiKv/cAov. 

13-14. The meaning of this mention of the avvbecrtioi (cf. 11. 8-10) is again doubtful, and the question is 
complicated by an uncertainty as to the reading. The supposed r might be taken for a zero (cf. 11. 24 and 27), 
or some other symbol, a dot with a stroke above it, resembling the common sign for iprdiSr,. u>i would then 
be a number ; but i again, is not written as it is elsewhere in this papyrus, being here of the cursive shape 
with a tail. Possibly then this also is a symbol, though it has a stroke over it like those of the other figures. 


The letters Toi$ are placed close together and the stroke above the ^ covers part of the <u. This group is 
followed by / which in this text is the regular abbreviation of xai. The deleted letters in 1. 13 seem to 
represent a misreading of (rvvbea-iiot. 

14-24. Statement of the corrections for longitude and latitude, corresponding to the three lunar cycles 
employed in the formula. The figures of these corrections are repeated in Col. ii in connexion with the 
shorter method there described. For the cycle of 248 days the longitude given is (11. 23, 26, and 47) 27° 43 
24 56. According to the tables of the Syntaxis Mathematica, p. 290, the sum of the longitudinal values for 
8 months and 8 days is 387° 44 34 2 30 4 o, i. e. with deduction of 360°, 27* 44 34 2 30 4. This differs 
slightly from the amount given in the papyrus, implying a small divergence in the quantity taken to represent 
the mean diurnal motion. Similarly in the case of the 3031 days' cycle, the values for longitude in Ptolemy's 
tables, pp. 286 and 290, are : — 

8 years 315° 2 9 50 44 20 o 

3 months 105° 52 27 50 15 45 o 

21 days 276° 42 14 29 43 40 30 

Total 697° 36 52 10 43 45 30 

This less 360° is 337° 36 52 10 43 45 30, which again slightly exceeds the figures of the papyrus, 337° 31 
19 7 (11. 20-1 and 43-4), but the amount of the mean diurnal motion implied is not exactly the same as that 
implied for the cycle of 248 days. The amount for the 9093 days' cycle (1. 17 ; cf. 11. 45-6, note) is obtained 
by multiplying that for 3031 days by 3 and subtracting 720°. 

The calculations of the argument of latitude in each case are less easily understood. The amounts given 
differ greatly from those obtained from Ptolemy's tables, and the divergence can hardly be due merely to 
errors of the copyist. 

18-J9. The amount must be thrice that of 11. 21-2, hence the first number ought to have been xf, instead 
of which a single figure, which looks more like 9 than anything else, was written. Owing to a flaw in the 
papyrus 7; in the number Atj stands rather apart from the X. 

22. 1. (J[i.i\ for K jUT) ; cf. 1. 7, &c. In the papyrus the k is separated from ^tj and only the k has the 
horizontal stroke which distinguishes figures. The mistake recurs in I. 37, with the difference that there 
the K is written k , like the abbreviation of /c(ai). 

24. /3 : or possibly i/3, but there is certainly no i in 1. 47 and probably none in 1. 27, and in the present 
place the doubtful appearance of an t may well be caused by a dark fibre in the papyrus. The quantity differs 
so largely from that given by Ptolemy's tables (40° 52 44 34 18 o 56), that so far as the latter are concerned 
Io° more or less is a matter of indifference. 

25-9. Cf. 11. 8-10 and note. 

27. /3 : cf. note on 1. 24. 

30. The first word is written avr' , which usually represents avriav. 

/x[.] : or perhaps ij{o(ipas) .] ; there is no trace of either a horizontal stroke or of an above the fi. 

31. a-nd AiovTos : i. e. from Regulus. In the Syttiaxis longitudes are measured from the first point of 
Aries but in the KovoVes apparently from Regulus ; cf Introd. p. 2 &s del ctuittj/joOo-i -npbs rbv ^tA rrjs KapbCas roi) 
AfovTos. Regulus being a star of the first magnitude and lying very close to the ecliptic was a convenient 
starting-point ; and at the time of Augustus it was situated approximately at the first point of Leo. 

32-50. ' Another shorter way, starting from the beginning. Sum up (?) all the years from Commodus, 
add 92, divide by 25, multiply the remainder by 365, multiply by 32 the number of cycles obtained from the 
division by 25, add up the whole number and divide, it you can, by 3031, divide the remainder by 248 and 
the final remainder will be the amount by which the number so gained falls short of 293 ; count the remainder 
off from Thoth i, and the day on which the position took place according to the Egyptian calendar will 
result. The degrees are determined as follows: — multiply the number of cycles obtained from the division 
by 3031, for longitude by 337° 31 19 7, and for latitude by 9° 12 43 48 15, the number obtained from the 
division by 25, for longitude by 292° (^^ 57 21, and for latitude by 27° 38) 11 24 45, and the number 
obtained from the division by 248, for longitude by 27° 43 24 57, for latitude by 2° 43 28 34 ; then add for 
longitude 12° 34 40 38, subtract for latitude 0° 21 22 14 15, and count off the degrees from Leo.' 


32. &TTO ipxrji is more easily connected with what precedes than with what follows. What ice means is 
uncertain. The two letters have a horizontal stroke above them like that placed over numbers, but a number 
at this point appears meaningless. Prof. Smyly suggests that they may be interpreted as an abbreviation 
of ice(^aXaia)<roi> : Ke(j>aka[mfia means ' sum total ' in Herod, iii. 159, and (rvyKi(f>aXawvv is commonly used in this 
sense. It is, however, to be observed that in 11. 2 and 52 there is no corresponding verb. 

33. aiib Koixfiobov probably means from the end of the reign of Commodus. Assuming the era used in 
the first formula to be that of Philip, Prof. Smyly points out that if x be the number of years ' from Com- 
modus', 515 +;tr will be the number from the era of Philip, and that this applied to the first process gives 

^12J-^ or 20+ i^i^, while if it be applied to the second the result is ° — — or 3+ . 20 — 3 = 17; and 

25 25 25 25 

as 25x365 (= 9125) is the first multiple of 365 which is greater than 9093 (= 3x3031), so 17^3^5{= 6205) 

is the first multiple of 365 which is greater than 6062 (= 2x3031). These curious coincidences perhaps 

justify the hypothesis that in the one case the years were reckoned from the era of Philip, in the other from 

what may be called the era of Septimius Severus. 

34. 1. ava K€, Ta AonT(a) (ill T^e ; cf. 11. 2-3. The writer is rather apt to confuse t and ir : cf. 1. 38 AeTrrouo-ii;

45-6. The statement of the latitude is wanting here, and a comparison with 11. 17-19 shows that the

of the longitude. Hence the passage is to be restored ^^k(oi;s) firl /io(ipas) (r(\8 (Xy vC ko, -nXdrovs tvl KC(cf. note

52-5. 'Concerning the node. Take the complete number of years, divide by i8j multiply the remainder 
by 19, the Egyptian months by 1° 35', and the days by 0° 3' 10" ; add all the number together . . .'

The moon's nodes have a retrograde motion along the ecliptic at the rate of approximately 19° annually. 
Hence if the number of years be multiplied by 19 and multiples of 360 be subtracted the change in the 
position of the nodes is obtained. Division by 18 is employed in order to avoid the subtraction of 360 and its 
multiples, just as multiples of 3031 were eliminated through the division by 25; cf. note on 11. 2-11. If the 
number of years be 18 a: +^ the number of degrees traversed by the nodes will be 19 (i8x+j/) = (360 — 18) .r 
+ 19J. Hence the rule follows : Divide the number of years by 18, multiply the remainder by 19 and subtract 
from the result 18 times the quotient. The direction for this last process was contained in 11. 56 sq. The 
Egyptian months are multiplied by 1° 35' and the days by 0° 3' 10" because those quantities respectively 
represent the mean monthly and daily retrogression of the nodes (1° 35' x 12 = 19°, 0° 3' 10" x 30 = 1° 35'). 

53, K(aO is here written k, like a numeral. 

55-6. What intervenes between api6[fji6v and roh] KVKAovy is obscure. In 1. 56 there is a horizontal stroke 
above the vestiges of the first letters (or letter), which were therefore probably a number. The next word may 
have been K(ai). After iroirjirov there came something like iirl itj Koi apov otto toC avvaxOfvTos apiOixov ; cf. 
note on 1. 52. 

56-74. ' The solstices and equinoxes observed by Ptolemy in the 463rd year from the death oi 
Alexander. The summer solstice is at the 7th hour of the night of Mesore 11 to 12 ; this is the starting-point 
of the observations. Add 92 days 30. The autumnal equinox is on Hathur 9, one hour approximately after 
sunrise. Add 38 days 7 30. The winter solstice is Mecheir 7, the fourth hour in the day. Add 95 days 30- 
The vernal equinox is Pachon 7, one hour approximately after noon. Add 94 days 30. 

' The year is the third of Aelius Antoninus : starting then from the fourth year down to the present year 
take the quarter of this number and from the total of days so obtained subtract for each year 0° o' 12" and add 
the remainder to each of the observations.'

61. After writing neToiratpivr] Tpoirq the copyist saw his error and cancelled the two words by the common 
expedient of a line drawn above them (cf. e. g. P. Oxy. 843. 142). He then realized that pieToiTwpivr) should

68-74. Since the Egyptian year contained 365 days, and the true length of the tropical year is 365 
14' 48" days {Synt. Math, i, p. 3o8), that is, is less than 365J days by 0° o' la", in order to arrive at the days 
of the solstices and equinoxes we must divide the number of years by 4, then, treating the quotient as days 
{hence dird t&v <Tvvax6ei(TS>v rip.ep5>v), subtract from it 0° o' la" days for each year, and add the remainder to each

^j--3oo (0° o' I a") = 75-1. 

69. The first syllable of n*XP' ^^^ been corrected ; apparently the writer blundered over the e j;nd so 
made another. 

71. There is a hole in the papyrus between a-vvaxdeia-oiv and r^ixepmv in which there would be room for one 
or two letters. 

73. Teipevas is corrected to \e\eiixp.evas, but the r is not cancelled and it is singular that a considerable gap 
is left between the over-written Xe and X. 

75- '[t] : though the surface of the papyrus shows slight signs of damage the t which must have been 
written is not to be recognized. 

76-84. In this table the first row of numbers, which is enclosed by vertical lines, represents the years 
of the era of Augustus, the year being in each case the last of the emperor whose name is placed opposite. 
The number in the last row is that of the first year of the reign according to the same era, and the number 
immediately following the name gives the length of the reign, aa, which regularly precedes the final number, 
seems meaningless as a numeral, and is probably a mistake on the part of the copyist for z. ( = eras) a, referring 
to the number following. This probability would be still stronger if it were certain that (fori) in 1. 76 is 
rightly read. The number 394 at the end of that line is that of the years from the death of Alexander to the 
accession of Augustus, and is to be added to the figures of the first row in order to obtain the number of years 
according to the era of Philip, which is used in the ordinary form of the Canon. 

76. X/3 : the years of Antoninus (19) are combined with those of Commodus (13), who counted his regnal 
years from his father's accession; cf. P. Oxy. 35 verso 13. In the Canon the two reigns are distinguished. 


77. Sfov^pov : i.e. Caracalla, whose years were reckoned, like those of Commodus, from the accession of 
his predecessor with whom he had been associated ; cf. P. Oxy. 35 verso 14 SeowjpoD (erij) xf. In the Canon 
the reigns of Septimius Severus and Caracalla are separately given (18 and 7 years respectively). 

78. 'Avocrlov: i. e. Elagabalus,who is for example ranked by the author of the Vt/a among X\it prodigiosos 
tyrannos . . . quorum nee noniina libet dieere. 

82-3. The Canon as given by Halma assigns 7 years to Philip and i to Decius, which is incorrect. Philip 
died some time between Sept. i and Oct. 16 of his 7th year, and since in reckoning the length of the reigns the 
odd months after the last Thoth i are neglected (the interval between the death of an emperor and the next 
Thoth 1 counting as his successor's first year), Philip should be given 6 years only. Decius on the other hand 
reached his third year, and therefore on similar grounds his reign should be reckoned at two years, not one. 
In P. Oxy. 35 verso 18-19 the arrangement is the same as that of this papyrus. 


Page about 7-5 x 6-6 cm. Fourth century. Plate 5 (fol. 2 verso, 

fol. 7 verso). 

A well-preserved quire of eight papyrus leaves, the string with which they were 
bound together being still in its place. The sheets were so arranged that when the 
quire is opened in the middle the verso of each sheet is uppermost; hence in the first 
four leaves the recto, in the last four the verso, was first written upon. The leaves are 
nearly square and very small, the book being apparently intended for the pocket like the 
copy of the Oxyrhynchus uncanonical gospel (P. Oxy. 840), the dimensions of which were 
very similar. In the present case, however, the character of the writing is less in keeping 
with that of the page. The script is a medium-sized upright uncial, well formed if some- 
what heavy, of the so-called biblical type, and dating from the fourth century perhaps 
more probably than the third. A certain amount of variation both in the size and con- 
figuration of the letters is observable, and the writing is decidedly more careful in the first 
two pages than in those which follow. A peculiarity is to be noticed in the formation of 
ft), in which the central stroke is commonly carried well above the line. Other round 
letters, 6, o, o- (usually), and often c, are disproportionately small; f is of the cursive shape. 
It is remarkable that these characteristic forms are also conspicuous in the marginalia of 
the Codex Sinaiticus of the Bible, and a new argument may here be found for the Egyptian 
origin of that MS. In a few places v at the end of a line has been written as a horizontal 
dash over the preceding vowel. Short lines are sometimes filled by the small angular sign 
usually employed for the purpose. Punctuation is exceptional (see below), and there are 
no other lectional signs beyond an occasional diaeresis. A second hand has introduced 
one or two alterations. 

The subject of the book is the prognostications to be derived from the involuntary 
movement — aXXea-dac or ndWeiv, i. e. quivering or twitching — of various parts of the body. 
That such movements portended certain events was a popular belief which finds ex- 
pression in both Greek and Latin classical literature. It is as old at any rate as Theocritus :

is not to be supposed that the Church succeeded in effectually eradicating such popular 

Suidas, in the citation above (see also s.v. Iloo-eiSwvios), attributes a work on omens 
of this sort to a certain Posidonius, apparently the Stoic Posidonius of Apamea (second to 
first century B.C.), who was interested in divination and wrote five books Trepi po.vTiKr\<i. 
But a regular treatise on the subject is still extant entitled Me\a/x7ro8os lepoypappaTeox; 
irepl TTokpoiv pavTiKT] Trp6<; TiToXcpalov /3acrtXea, and professing to have been composed in 
obedience to a royal command. According to Fabricius, Bibl. Or. i, p. 116, the Ptolemy 
was Philadelphus ; but modern criticism has declined to take the title and preface 
seriously, and the author is commonly described as the Pseudo-Melampus ; cf Susemihl, 
Gesch. d. Gr. Lit. i. d. Alexandrinerzeit, i, pp. 300, 873. The Tre/al Tro.\pu)v pavTiK-q exists 
in more than one form ; besides the longer version (A) there are three more or less 
reduced epitomes, of which the chief is known from a fourteenth-century manuscript at 
Paris (P). These versions have recently been edited and discussed by Diels in his 
Beitrdge z. Zuckungslitt. des Okzidents u. Orients in the Abhandl. d. k. Preuss. Akad. d. 
Wissensch., Phil.-Hist. KL, 1907-1908. Diels considers that the body of writings bearing the 
name of Melampus, which were known to Artemidorus {Oneir. iii. 28), and of which 
the TT€pX irakpoiv represents one section, was composed at about the beginning of the 
Imperial period or even rather earlier; and he plausibly explains the divergences between 
A and P, &c., as due to an accretion of adscripts derived from other authorities and 
treated by the various redactors in different ways. The problem has lately been 
further complicated by Vitelli's publication {Atene e Roma, 61-2, pp. 32 sqq., 1904; 
reprinted by Diels, loc. cit., 1908) of a papyrus purchased by him in the Fay am and 
attributed to the third century, containing part of a similar yet distinct treatise (P. Vit,); 
and to this there is now added the present text, which, though having much in common 
with both A and P. Vit., by no means coincides with either. These three treatises, 
like the shorter compendia, all follow the same scheme ; the various members of the 
body are taken one after the other, starting from the head downwards, and the omens 
associated with their movement are concisely enumerated. There is often a close 
correspondence in the names of the various bodily parts, 28 and P. Vit. being especially 
harmonious in this respect ; A shows more variation (cf notes on 11. 1-3, 14 sqq., 86, 
118-22, 180-91). Resemblances in vocabulary are strongly marked throughout; and as 
the obscure word crvp^ovXt] (A 10, &c.) was elucidated by a-vp^oXr) ydpov of P. Vit. 17, so 




28. 58 sqq. supply a satisfactory emendation of another corruption in A. Certain other 
formal characteristics, however, introduce divisions, (i) In 28 frequently, in P. Vit. 
regularly, after the prognostications, directions are given to pray to or propitiate appro- 
priate divinities, which, though they do not correspond in the two authorities, agree in 
this, that they are all Greek, with no Egyptian admixture ; in A no such advice occurs. 
(2) Although in 28 slaves and women are frequently specified, the favourite triad of A, 
8oi)Xo5, trapdivo-i, xvp°- (cf- e. g. the note on 11. 201-12 : it is very prominent earlier in the 
treatise), does not figure. P. Vit. here sides with A, only the triad becomes by the addition 
of (TTpaTLcoTTj^ a tetrad, which is repeated with wearisome regularity. In style 28 has advan- 
tages over the other two, being distinctly less monotonous and bald. (3) A fondness for 
alternative predictions (eV oi\\oL<;, dXXax;, &c. : cf e. g. notes on 11. 4-8, 75-85) is a peculiarity 
of A. With regard to the character of the predictions there are curious coincidences 
and divergences. For example, each has a different interpretation for the yacrrpo/o^^ta 
evdvvfj.o'; (28. 156 sqq.), whereas all three agree closely respecting the KepKls Sefia and 
apLo-Tepd just above. Plainly, then, there is a substantial common element ; but on the 
other hand the discrepancies of interpretation not less plainly point to the early currency of 
independent authorities, which were differently combined by the authors of the three 
versions. The question of the relation of A to the shorter forms thus assumes a new aspect. 
It is no longer necessary to assume that they are actually compendia of A : they may 
be the descendants of other parallel versions such as those the existence of which the 
papyri have now revealed. 

The text of 28, as of P. Vit., is broken up into paragraphs, a new paragraph 
commencing with each new mention of a member or part of one. In two places where the 
scribe inadvertently neglected to make the usual distinction a dash has been inserted after 
the final word of the clause, and is accompanied by a marginal coronis (11. 52 and 63). 
This system of paragraphs rendered the book easier of reference, enabling the inquirer 
to find readily the portent of which he might be in search. 

In the commentary below, the parallel passages from A, which for purposes of comparison 
are cited throughout along with those of P. Vit., are taken from the edition of Diels.

Pray to Victory. If the right part of the loin quiver, a slave or poor man will prosper greatly after distress. 
If the left part of the loin quiver, the person will engage upon many things and will suffer loss for a time, and 
will emerge again from his troubles. If the middle part of the loin quiver, it means that a notable profit will 
be received from his kindred by the person, whether a slave or free. If the groin quiver, a person so affected 
will make a graceful appearance ; to one unmarried it denotes marriage.'

fvmwuov n4pos may have dropped out ; cf. 11. 50-7, note. Other omissions, however, occur which may not be 
accidental, e. g. 1. 146, where there is no mention of ayKvXi} Se^id and apia-repd but only of ai aynvkai, or 1. 207, 
where fidxruXos fi4yas follows hdKTvkos rpiros.

For (■!tLbia(f>9opdv Struve conjectured eir' tSi'a <^6opa, which Diels accepts, but this hardly mends the passage, to 
which the papyrus, though itself requiring some alteration, now supplies the key. In 1. 59 iiribK^piut might

in 1. 62. Turning now to the text of A, i-nibia^Oopdv is evidently a corruption of (■ni.U<l>piov and the sentence

similarly for a woman or a slave. If the left thigh quiver, it denotes happiness and gain from a female. If the 
right knee quiver, a person so affected will be made happy by a friendly-disposed person : pray to Fortune. 
If the left knee quiver, it denotes changes and troubles from females. If the right leg quiver, it signifies that the 
man will be honoured ; for a woman it denotes loveliness : pray and sacrifice to Aphrodite. If the left leg 
quiver, it signifies for a woman censure in consequence of adultery, and for slaves, threats and labour. If both 
legs quiver, it denotes great achievements and travel. If the right shin quiver, it denotes that he will be very 
wealthy : pray to Hermes. If the left shin quiver, it denotes that he will lose a subordinate person ; for 
a slave in servitude it means an alleviation of his servitude. If the right leg-bone quiver, the person so affected 
will have pain on account of a friend and will be involved in ill-treatment : pray to Nemesis. If the left 
leg-bone quiver, the person so affected will go on a long and unexpected journey in which he will have pain. 
If both houghs quiver, it denotes something good : pray to Fortune. If the right calf quiver, the person will 
unexpectedly acquire something in his life and will have prosperity ; a slave or a poor man will become rich. 
If the left calf quiver, he will have pain over a woman or a friend : pray to Fortune.'

denotes riches : pray to Fortune. If the toe next to the little one quiver, it has the same meaning : pray to 
Fortune. If the third toe quiver, it signifies trouble, and the man will have strife on account of a female and 
afterwards gladness : pray to Dionysus. If the great toe quiver, it signifies for a slave that he will become 
a master and be freed from all pain. If the little toe of the left foot quiver, it denotes that the man will have 
care concerning another's affairs, and afterwards joy : pray to Zeus, If the next one quiver, he will be involved 
in much anxiety and distress : pray to Zeus. If the fourth toe, he will be lord of much wealth and many

7.5 X 7-3 cm. Third century. 

A small fragment of vellum inscribed on the verso (hair-side) with a series of medical 
receipts in a cursive hand of, probably, about the middle of the third century. The other 
side is blank, and the fragment is thus unlikely to have been part of a leaf from a book ; 
it perhaps belonged to a short roll, and the letters in the left margin opposite 11. 9-10 
may be the remains of a preceding column, though in that case the lines were very uneven 
in length. Directions are given for the production and use of t/?oxio-koi, lozenges or 
pastilles, for certain ailments, e.g., in 11. 8 sqq., fluxes of various kinds; the ingredients 
appear to be arranged alphabetically. Prof. Hberg, to whom I owe a number of sug- 
gestions on 29 and 29 (a), points out analogous prescriptions in Galen and Paulus

Frag. I ii-ax77 cm. Second century. 

The following fragments from a series of medical receipts are written in medium-sized 
cursive of probably the second century. Frag, i is the bottom of a column, and Frags. 2 and 
3, which appear to join, form the bottom of a second ; but the relation of these two columns 
to each other is uncertain. Prof. Ilberg thinks that the prescriptions in Frag, i were 
intended for the eyes, and for this reason the fragment is placed first, since it was usual 
in receipt-books of this kind to work down the body, starting from the top (cf. 28). The 
eyes are certainly the subject of the verso of Frag, i, where some further receipts have 
been added by another hand. Frags. 2-3, the verso of which is blank, deal with the 
mouth, and contain a receipt for a tooth-powder (oSoi^Tdr/ai/Aju.a), and specifics for the uvula 
and for thrush. The width of the columns on the recto is not clearly determined ; the 
lines were at any rate considerably longer than those on the verso of Frag, i.

2. ir€7r]t'p€os is very doubtful ; the first e is unsatisfactory, and there may be a letter lost after the 
supposed p. 

5. For 6a[Tp6.Kov (Ilberg) cf. e.g. Galen xii, p. 347, where a-qirCai SarpaKov is recommended both for the 
eyes and mouth. 

8. a, which is not easily combined with the following letters, is probably the numeral, the measure being 
unexpressed, as in 1. 4. 

9-10. For (xriap fxCbvrjs Ilberg compares Galen xii, p. 331, and for \aixai\eovTos xo^'7. Marcell. De Medic. 
8. 67 ; these were both used for diseases of the eye. 

13. The supplements were suggested by Ilberg ; cf. Diosc. iv. 170 (ed. Wellmann), Alex. Trail, i, p. 381 
(ed. Puschmann). 

16. Ilberg is probably right in restoring annaivMKov (cf. Diosc. iii. 84 6it6s ia-Tt rdpOr^KOi yevva^iivov iv T-rj 
Kara Kvprjvrjv Ai^vji), but it is unlikely that a/u . [ in 1. 15 is the beginning of the word since this would imply 
a narrower column than what seems to be indicated elsewhere in the fragments. Another possibility is cnX<f>iov 
(or oTtov) which was used for the eyes (Diosc. iii. 80) among other things. 

18. Probably not xXjwor. 

19. Perhaps f(Txa]pai, as Ilberg proposes ; but the doubtful p may possibly be $, e. g. /xi]^as. Stoo-uSj^as is less 
likely. The iota adscript of olvm was added above the line. 

21. wpo8[i]aj:ijj(rdpi€j^os for ■npob[i]aiJi{aa)r](r6.ixfvos could be read ; it is noticeable, as Ilberg remarks, that this 
verb occurs several times in the prescriptions for the mouth in Ps.-Galen xiv, pp. 424 sqq.

7-5 X 4-1 cm. Second century. 

A small fragment containing parts of two columns, written in a clear cursive hand, 
probably of the second century. For what ailments these specifics were intended does not 
appear ; it may be noted that some of the ingredients recur in P. Tebt. 273, which is largely 
concerned with diseases of the eyes. On the verso are remains of two still more incomplete 
columns in a different hand, but very likely of a similar nature.

chemical glosses. 


/ The following twelve small pieces, which remain unidentified, may here be conveniently 
grouped together. 

The first contains the ends of two columns from a historical work, written in heavy 
upright uncials referable to the first century B.C. Col. ii is rather shorter than its 
predecessor. A mention in 1. 13 of the fountain Peirene shows that the scene of action was 
;Corinth. Some indication of the date of the work may perhaps be derived from the use 



in 1. 12 of the preposition a-rrivavn, of which Stephanus quotes no example earlier than 

31 consists of ten lines from the top of a column, the last line being followed by 
a considerable blank space, from which the natural inference is that the work, whatever 
it was, concluded at this point. It is no doubt prose, and perhaps again of a historical 
character ; there is a reference to Athens in 1. 4. The occurrence of the numeral y8 in 1, 5 
is noticeable. The hand, a carefully written good-sized uncial, is of a generally similar 
type to that of 44, with which this fragment was purchased, and belongs to the same period. 

32 is poetic, and not improbably hexametrical. A mention of Cerberus occurs in 1. 8, 
and in this connexion a-KvraKw in 1. 4 appears significant ; cf note ad loc. The fragment is 
written in not very regular upright uncials which have early characteristics and probably 
date from late Ptolemaic times. 

33 is a prose fragment of doubtful character ; indeed neither its language nor the 
quality of the script indicates very clearly that it should be classed as literary, though they 
rather favour that view. It is written in informal uncials of medium size and thoroughly 
Ptolemaic cast ; the date indicated is the second century b.c. 

34 contains the ends of a few lines written in good-sized rather irregular uncials which 
may be assigned to the first century. The lines are uneven in length, 1. 8 for instance 
extending more than i| cm. beyond 1. 6, a feature suggesting a metrical arrangement, 
and have an Ionic rhythm ; possibly they are Anacreontic verses. Line 10 is a title or 
heading of some kind. 

35, from the top of a column of prose, is written in rather small oval uncials on the verso 
of part of an account of produce, which may date from the second or third century. 
A reference to Anacreon is perhaps to be recognized in 1. 4. 

36 is another third-century fragment from the top of a column in medium-sized sloping 
uncials the lines of which are rather widely spaced. It may be either poetry or prose. 

37 is a badly damaged strip containing the ends of a few lines of prose from the top of 
a column ; in the lower part of it there are vestiges of the initial letters of the lines of the 
succeeding column, but nothing is legible. The script is a sloping medium-sized uncial with 
some tendency to cursive, which may belong to the second or early third century ; it is 
remarkable for a curious S, shaped just like the Latin uncial 6. On the verso is part of a list 
of names in cursive of the second or third century. 

38. A fragment from the bottom of a leaf of a papyrus book. The recto preserves the 
ends and the verso the beginnings of a few lines of prose written in a neat uncial hand of 
medium size and of the third-century oval type. 

39 is a piece of mummy-cartonnage, the source of which may be guessed to be Hibeh ; 
cf 16 {a). This fragment contains the ends of a few lines from a medical treatise, with 
some very scanty traces of the succeeding column. The hand, a well-formed uncial of 
medium size, is to be assigned to the first half of the third century b. c. 

40, written in a rather small semi-cursive hand of the second century, mentions Minos 
and Sisyphus, and may belong to a commentary or to some mythological treatise or 
compendium. A Homeric citation in 1. 9 was identified by Mr. Allen, who suggests tl at 
the numbers 7r]e)u,7rTov and oyhoov in 11. 5 and 10 denote the order in which the hero • 



personages stood in some list. The text is on the verso of the papyrus, the recto being 
blank, k in 11. 26-7 apparently stands, as often, for /cat, and irpos in 1. 28 is written in the 
form of a monogram. 

41 is a fragment from the end of an acrostic, the lines of which, as in 7, represent the 
letters of the alphabet in consecutive order. So far as they are preserved the sentences 
have a moral tendency, and were no doubt put together for educational purposes. Perhaps 
they were originally in iambic metre, which was often employed in compositions of this 
class ; cf. Krumbacher, Gesch. d. Byz. Litt. pp. 717, 814. The hand is a slightly sloping 
informal uncial of, probably, the sixth century. On the verso there are parts of seven lines 
in Coptic.

ffKvraXov is used of the club of Heracles in Pindar, 01. ix. 30, Theocr. xvii. 31, and is thus appropriate in

4. This line, which is markedly shorter than the rest, apparently concluded a section. Line 7 is also rather 
short, but since it ends with the word /cat this must be merely a case of irregular spacing.

8-9. Cf. Homer Z 153 hda be 2C(Tv<f>os ta-Ktv, b Kfpbi(rros yivfr' ivbp&v. But there is a lacuna of uncertain 
length between the name 2io-j;^o[y in 1. 8 and f<TKfv in 1. 9, as is shown by the projection of 11. 1 1 and 1 2. avb]paiv

12. Allen proposes 7reiraX]a/xr;o-5ai, with a reference to the etymology of the name IlaXajLiTjSjjj, which would 
then have been oyboov. [fxtiivija-Oai might then be supplied after ovbe in 1. 11, with some word like </)7/](ro$ before

ii-6xia'8cm. Fourth century. Plate 8. 

This fragment from the bottom of a column is written in rather large rustic capitals in 
which the contrast between heavy and light strokes is very strongly marked. On the verso 
are the ends of two lines of Greek cursive dating perhaps from the fourth or fifth century, 
and the Latin text on the recto may be assigned like P. Oxy. 871, which is in a hand of 
a similar type, to the fourth century. Unless it can be identified the piece is of course too 
small to possess more than a palaeographical interest; the words quaestio, caedem, and 
carcere have rather a legal flavour.

43. HOMER, lUAD I. 

ao-8 X 36-4 cm. Early third century. 

Remains of four columns from a roll containing the first book of Homer's Jh'ad. 
The first and last columns have lost the beginnings and ends of lines respectively, but 
the two intervening ones are nearly complete. The handwriting is a clear semi-cursive, 
of, probably, the earlier decades of the third century. A terminus ante quern is provided 
by the verso, on which is a short astronomical treatise (27) written after, but apparently 
not much after, the reign of Gallus. No lexical signs occur except the diaeresis. The 
papyrus shows the vulgate text in a fairly correct form, and apart from clerical errors 
rarely differs from the better mediaeval MSS. The appended collation of this and the 
other Homeric pieces in the present volume is based on the editions of Ludwich, whose 
readings are distinguished by an asterisk. Additional information has sometimes been 
derived from the apparatus of Monro and Allen, which, however, is confined to a notice 
of the more iniportant variants. I do not as a rule remark on minor orthographical details, 
such as the presence or absence of v I^^kvcttikov or the interchange of i and u.

87 X I3'5 cm. First century B.C. Plate 4. 

A fragment containing the ends and beginnings of lines from two columns of the first 
Book of the Ih'ad, written in good-sized upright uncials which are obviously of early type, 
and may be assigned to the middle or latter part of the first century b.c. The hand is 
an ornamental one, most of the straight strokes being finished off with small apices. 
Z and S are of the archaic shape ; P and * are not carried below the line. No lection 
signs occur, but the 500th line is marked in the usual way in the margin of Col. ii. 
The column consisted of 22 lines, 1. 480 being exactly opposite 1. 503. This papyrus, like 
31, was purchased together with 51, the hand of which is extremely similar, — so similar 
that it becomes a question whether they can be regarded as identical. Probably, how- 
ever, they are to be distinguished. A difference in the size of the letters, which are 
larger in 51 than in 44, is of no consequence ; but it is also noticeable that A, A, M, and n 
are proportionally narrower in the latter than in the former. Another Homeric frag- 
ment in a hand of much the same type is P. Reinach i {Iliad xix), which the editor dates 
too late. This is likely to approximate to 44 and 51 in period as it does in style. 

There are no variants from Ludwich's text. It is possible that critical marks, which 
are used in 51, were also inserted in the present MS. ; so little of the margin is pre- 
served that their non-appearance in what remains is inconclusive.

Behnesa. 6-2 x 5-3 cm. Second century. 

This is a small fragment from the top of a column, written in medium-sized round 
uncials, which may be attributed to the first half of the second century. A smooth 
breathing in the first line appears to be due to the original scribe. No variants from 
the text of Ludwich occur.

Behnesa. 5-3 x 3-5 cm. First century. 

The following small fragment from A is written in a round and upright uncial 
hand which probably dates from the first century a.d. The scribe was not very skilful 
and had a difficulty in keeping the letters, which are of above the medium size, suffi- 
ciently tall ; several of them have been retouched and enlarged, perhaps by another pen. 
An accent and a high stop occur.

34-6 X 7'9 cm. Second century. 

Ends of 45 lines from the fifth book of the Ih'ad, written in medium-sized irregular 
uncials of, probably, the second century. The papyrus is broken at the bottom, but it 
is not likely that very much is missing in that direction, since the column is already 
fairly tall. Stops in two positions (high and middle) and a few accents and marks of 
elision occur, some at any rate and perhaps most of these accompaniments being due 
to a second hand, which has also made occasional alterations in the text. The accentua- 
tion is rather erratic. A reading of some small interest is found in 1. 221, where a 
proposal of Bentley's, which had already been supported by an Oxyrhynchus papyrus, 
receives further attestation.

221. €irij37j(r€ot is found here also in P. Oxy. 223 (third century) and was proposed by Bentley in the 
parallel passage 105 in place of the vulgate (Tn^rjaeo, which is superscribed in the papyrus (by the second 
hand ?) as a variant. 

222. The letters 1 7re5t[o]i[ are coarsely written, probably owing to an imperfect surface. 
22S, *8' €/xoi: so AB, &c. ; b( jxoi P. Oxy. 223, S, &c. 

230. The superfluous iota was deleted by the corrector ; cf. 1. 337, where a similar alteration has been 
made. But he apparently neglected the i adscript of nnra>i. 

331. fim]9oTe: so anumber of MSS. ; *ficofloTi Aristarchus and the bulk of the written tradition. P. Oxy. 223 
is defective. 

334. TTodfovTfs (so P. Oxy. 223, S, &c.) has been corrected by the second hand to *Tto6tovT(. 

242. 1. Tipo(rqvba. 

245. fv : so MSS., including P. Oxy. 223 ; Ludwich writes Iv. 

247. £ was probably deleted by the corrector. 



Behnesa. 20 x17 cm. Third century. 

Of the two columns partially preserved in this fragment one is fairly complete, while 
the second is represented only by the beginnings of rather more than half the lines. 
They are written in a medium-sized semi-cursive hand which should perhaps be attri- 
buted to the third century rather than to the second. No lection signs occur beyond 
a single high stop at the end of a verse (1. 654). An Aristarchean reading which is not 
found in many MSS. appears in 1. 661 ; otherwise the text of this papyrus is a singularly 
bad one, disfigured by numerous inaccuracies and misspellings.

Hibeh ? 3-9 X 2-4 cm. Third century B.C. 

A tiny fragment inscribed with medium-sized upright uncials of the third century b.c, 
from the cartonnage of a mummy. Its origin was perhaps Hibeh, but that is uncertain. 
So exiguous a scrap could not be expected to show much variation from the ordinary text, 
but it keeps up the character of the oldest Homeric papyri by offering one otherwise 
unrecorded reading. A review of the earlier Ptolemaic evidence and a discussion of the 
problems to which this gives rise will be found in the introduction to P. Hibeh 19.

This small fragment from S is part of a leaf from a papyrus book inscribed in not 
very regular sloping uncials of medium size, which may date from about the middle of 
the third century. Marks of elision were inserted by the original hand, but such accents 
and breathings as occur were added subsequently in a lighter-coloured ink. The text 
coincides so far as it goes with that of Ludwich.

Height 33-9 cm. First century B.C. Plate 4 (Cols, ii-iii). 

Remains of three columns, all much damaged, from a roll containing the last Book 
of the Iliad. This papyrus belongs to the same group as 31 and 44, and the hand 
closely resembles that of the latter papyrus ; cf introduction to 44. 

The text is a correct version of the vulgate, of little interest except for the occur- 
rence of critical signs, which have now been found in several papyri, e. g. P. Oxy. 
445, 687, P. Tebt. 4, P. Berlin 8440, and P. Brit. Mus. 128. Of these P. Tebt. 4, of the 
late second century b.c, is the oldest example, the present manuscript, which belongs 
to the succeeding century, ranking next. It has three instances of the SiTrXiJ, but none 
of the other signs occur.

Leaf about i6-8 x 13 cm. Third or fourth century. Plate 9 

(Foil. 76 verso, 89 verso, 9a verso). 

The MS. of which the following extensive remains have survived was a vellum book 
once containing the entire Odyssey. Its original compass is clear from the occurrence 
in the top left-hand corner of Fol. 79 recto, the first page of a quire, of the number kS 
(cf Fol. 87 recto kc), showing that twenty-three gatherings had already preceded. The 
gatherings are quaternions and the number of lines on a page ranges from 28 (30 com- 
monly in the earlier remaining portions) to 34. If 29 lines be taken as the average, the 
resulting total up to Fol. 79 is approximately that of the lines contained in the twenty-one 
preceding books. There is no foliation of individual leaves, but with the assistance of the 
quire-mark kS their number can be deduced as 207. Stichometrical figures are also absent. 
On the other hand the letter denoting a book not only appears as a title at the beginning and 
end of the book, but is also usually entered at the top of each right page, enabling the reader 
to find his place readily. When a book ends on the left page, the letter-number is sometimes 
added at the top of that also. At the conclusion of the last book the name oSucro-eia? 
accompanies the letter <u ; probably this also stood at the beginning of Book i. The sheets 
are normally so arranged that the recto (flesh-side) and verso (hair-side) lie uppermost 
alternately, the recto of one leaf thus facing the recto of the next ; the arrangement is how- 
ever sometimes disturbed, e. g. Foil. 6, 73-4, 88. In the bottom sheet of the quire the recto 
is underneath, and therefore it is uppermost in the top sheet. Each sheet is ruled with 
a hard point horizontally and vertically in the usual way, the rulings being carried across 
the entire sheet ; the points at which the top and bottom horizontal lines were to inter- 
sect the vertical lines were previously pricked off, and the distances of the horizontal lines 
down the leaves were similarly fixed by prickings placed at about 1-5 cm. inside the outer 
vertical lines. 

The text is written in a slightly sloping medium-sized uncial hand, which though fairly 
regular is distinguished by no marked accuracy or grace. It is of a type which is commonly 
associated with the third century, and there seems to be no clear indication, either in the 
original hand or in that of the corrector who has made a number of insertions, of a date 
later than about a.d. 300. The codex may then be assigned, if not to the later decades of the 
third century, to the beginning of the century following, and thus deserves to be ranked 

N 2 


among the earliest examples of vellum books which have descended to us. An ink of 
a brown colour was used, which is dark enough where applied v/ith a full pen, but became, 
or with the lapse of time has become, rather light and faint where put on thinly, with the 
result that in many of the pages an unpleasing patchy effect is produced. Iota adscript is 
commonly written, though with decreasing uniformity towards the end. Final tjv is once 
{(f> 281) in the form of a monogram (cf e. g. P. Oxy. 842). Of the lexical signs the original 
scribe is to a large extent responsible for diaereses, and marks of elision, which it may be 
noted he often introduces into such compounds as e.g. /act' c^t; (v 270, &c.); but stops, 
breathings, accents, marks of quantity, &c., are for the most part subsequent additions by 
a second hand which has also made a number of emendations — not always very successful 
— ^in the text. This corrector generally employed a black ink, so that his additions are easily 
distinguished ; towards the close of Book xxiii, however, and through most of the book 
following, as well as occasionally elsewhere, his ink is similar to that of the first hand. All 
three kinds of stops occur, that in the high position being much the most frequent ; the 
other two are, as usual, not used with great discrimination, and at the end of a verse it is 
sometimes difficult to determine whether a high or medial point was intended. Both rough 
and smooth breathings, occasionally approximating to a rounded form, are fairly common : 
they are now and then inserted in compound words, e. g. x 341 apyvporjkov, \jj 365 -n-poTLoa-a-eo. 
A rough breathing with an initial p is noticeable at <j) 291 and t/» 366. With regard to the 
accents, which have been profusely supplied, there is a peculiarity in the treatment ot 
oxytone words. As is well known, the early method of accentuating such words was 
to place a grave accent on one or more of the preceding syllables, and this system is 
frequently utilized in the present MS. But very often a different plan is followed and the 
accented syllable is given a grave accent, just as in the modern style, except that the grave 
is not turned into an acute before a stop. It appears to be a matter of indifference to the 
accentuator which of these alternative systems he adopts ; for example in x 176 he writes 
v\lir)\rjv and in 193 vxjjtjXtjv. Moreover he sometimes combines both systems, accenting 
the final syllable as well as one or more of the syllables preceding, e. g. x 136 AioT/)e<^cs, 
148 x^P^*" ^^^ I'^jac/ares, ^ 275 a6r}py)\oXyov. Some few parallels for these uses are to be 
found elsewhere. In the Oxyrhynchus Callimachus (loii, fourth century) oxytone mono- 
syllables commonly have a grave accent, and in Pindar's Paeans (P. Oxy. 841, second 
century) polysyllables are occasionally similarly accented, e. g. IV. 37 e/caroj/ ; while the 
mixed system is exemplified in Paean II. 98 ^a/i,a, and in 1. 5 of the Paris Alcman papyrus 
(P. Paris 71) Kopva-TOLv. Such phenomena are not to be regarded as ' instances of mistaken 
accentuation ' (P. Oxy. V, p. 14) ; they are rather sporadic illustrations of a method which has 
hitherto not been adequately attested. Syllables preceding enclitics receive an accent, as 
usual, but enclitics do not any more than stops affect a preceding grave accent (cf. e. g. </> 341 
^oKkov t€ -^pva-ov re aXt? ead^Ta re SoiTes : v 289 iLeYakt^ re is not an exception, since the 
■q need not have had any accent apart from the tc) ; of a retracted accent on a paroxytone 
word examples are x 204 TroXee's re and »/' 179 [ev]^a 01, for which cf P. Oxy. 841, &c. In 
diphthongs a circumflex generally covers both vowels, but with acute and grave accents 
there is no consistency; indeed the accentuation generally is carelessly done, and it is 
not seldom a matter of doubt, not merely which vowel, but which syllable was intended 


to be accented ; e. g. in u 345 the grave accent on eo-rt is placed between <r and r, and it is 
not clear whether eo-n or co-tI should be written. In several places a wrong accent has been 
given and then replaced by another, e.g. x 4^6 irepL^dWe, \}j 18 Totdi/Se, w 124 e-rvxOvl i" 
others the error has not been rectified, e. g. x 425 rtoGo-ai, 492 (jtiX-f], \p 240 Tn^xee XeuKwt, w 278 
eiSutas ; mistaken breathings such as xjj 70 686vtcjv, 308 e\ey' are rarer. 

Eleven books are represented, but the remains of the twelfth, fifteenth, eighteenth, and 
nineteenth are extremely slight. Books xiii-xiv and xx-xxiv are in much better condition, 
and in the last three and a half books the lines are continuous, though a large hole in the 
centre of each leaf unfortunately causes serious lacunae. This codex is thus a valuable 
addition to the evidence for the Odyssey, and it exhibits a decidedly interesting text. This, 
as with so many of the papyri, does not fall into line with any other extant MS. or group 
of MSS. A good example of its ' mixed' character is seen at \jj 77, where it agrees with 
the Monacensis and Eustathius against the majority of the witnesses in reading eia elTrelv, 
but on the other hand sides with the majority against Mon. Eustath. in having iroXu/cepSiTjio-t ; 
cf. \ji 264. Agreements with the Monacensis are not infrequent ; for some notable instances 
see V 199, 302, </) 219-20, i/» 122, 175, 359, CO 387, in five of which Eustathius is on the same 
side. There are two remarkable coincidences with Cod. Ven. ix. 4 against all other 
testimony, x 447 and w 408; cf. ^ 381, <f> 219-20, w 480. In addition to the agreements 
with Eustathius already mentioned, ^ 414 and w 390 deserve remark ; but they are counter- 
balanced by numerous divergences. Other contributions of more or less interest occur at 
V 435, I 328, rp 162, 233, 361, w II, 20, 137, 180 (a reading inferred by Buttmann from the 
scholia), 321, 401, 496. Variants peculiar to this codex are found at v 91, 1 214, ^ 126, 289, 
X 279, 311, rp 25, 151, 162, 188 (a variant coinciding with a conjecture of Grashof), 210, 
332-3, w 85, 173, 209, 240, 286, 380, 382, 385, 417. 

The separation of the decayed leaves was a matter of some difficulty, and a number of 
small fragments have adhered to them tightly and could not be removed without damage. 
Most of these fragments have been identified and copied in their proper place, and no doubt 
a further expenditure of time and patience would result in the identification of others, 
though the positive gain would probably not be serious. There also remain two or three 
small coagulated lumps which defy treatment. 

Fol. I verso. (First quaternion, of which the first two leaves are lost.)

Kvpar hepviv. u> would then be due to the corrector. To write final v as a stroke above the line is not the 
usual practice of the first hand. 

115. *Toi(i>v: soFGHMSU; toToi' others. 

120. *KTr}par: so FGPHDSU ; XPW"!"' others. 

152. ap<l)iKa\]v\j/fi : *-\j/aL Aristarchus, &c., -i/fo) others. 

199. 8e TTpoa-qvba: so FGPHMS ; *8' tiros rjvba Aristarch. &c. The second o of o^o^vpop.fvos was altered 
by the original hand from v. 

234. eveieXoy seems to have been written by mistake for evbeieXos : the i is almost certain. 

255. The final v of voo]v, if it be v, is badly formed, the second upright failing to meet the cross-bar. 

256. re : 1. ye (hi J, om. F) ; cf. ^ 81. 

269. The erroneous accent on the a of rjpeas seems to be due to the first hand : that on the e is certainly 
not original. 

271. The omission of this line was probably caused by the homoeoarchon of ovrdp and ovt^k'; cf. v 304. 

284. T of [k]ot6€(7ov was originally left out, but was added by the first hand. 

318. 0118' fvorjcra: SO MSS. ; *ovbk vorjcra Bekker, ed. 2. 

327. j)Tre(Oo]irevtjis : so MXTULW, inr. S ; *?j7repo7r6V(rTjs others. 

340. Line 343 has mistakenly been inserted between 11. 339 and 340 ; it appears again in. its right position. 
t in woTTjcreiy was altered from a by the first hand. 

349. Lines 347-348, which = 103-104, are omitted also in FGTUO ; cf. Eust. oSroi 8^ 01 bvo arCxpi ?v run

440. Below this verse there is a space in which the number of the book was written ; cf. e. g. the con- 
clusion of X.

97. 01-8 is an error for ovr ; cf. ix 430. 

98. ovTf : so FLW Eust. ; *ovh4 others. 

111. eS^Sls: <8a)8f( MSS. Possibly the supposed circumflex accent (by the second hand) is an over- 
written t, but the s has not been deleted. 

112. The MSS. are divided between o-kv(^os and a-Kvcpov, the former being the reading of Aristoph., the 
latter of Aristarchus according to Athen. xi. 498 f. 

eiiivov: (TTiviv MSS. 

154. The bulk of the MSS. omit this line and so Ludwich. 

163. Ktv: so LW, though having artfxdfet in 1. 164; *tls others. 

177. (f)pfvas: so most MSS. ; *beiias hW Eust. 

18a. pic of Apxeio-tov were converted by the first hand from a v. 

184. Ka]iv seems to have been written for Ktv : cf. e.g. 1. 190, v 431. There is no variant here. 

188. 8' : so most MSS. ; *t Aristarchus LW. 

1 90. itaL^ov : so apparently for wefoi'. 

1 95. afKovT : so LW ; ^aKiovr others. 

314-15. The ordinary text here is KaKifxrjv ye a olofxai daopo&vTa yivia-Ktiv. The scribe repeated oiofxai 
and apparently wrote only the first two or three letters of the word fia-opocovra, which was completed by the 
second hand in the infinitive ; that the superfluous oio/xai was at the same time cancelled is not clear, though 
probable. Perhaps yivaxTKovT replaced ywdarKdv in 1. 215. The erroneous mark of elision after y was also 
inserted by the corrector, who further emended 6017; below to 8ii)j (cf. note on /n 436). 

221. At the end of the line the upper dot is by the second, the lower apparently by the first hand. 

273. *<t>p((nv mbe : ^peal roCro PHJLWY.

298. s of r?;os corn 

320. re has been omitted after )(\aiva]v. 

328. f-naKovo-ai, the reading of Aristophanes and a few MSS., is here supported, though the accent (by the 
second hand, as usual) is wrong ; iiraKova-ri Aristarchus, vulg. 

SS6. 1. iTeix]\j/ai. 

353. 1. bpCos ; a number of MSS. similarly have v in place of t.

465. o of o[p)(ri(racrdai seems to have been corrected from 7/. 

469. Tpo]ir) : so F, &c., Strabo 599 ; *Tpolr]v others. 

478. TT of 77[ai'rey is broken, but the remains suit tr better than ^ of /xer, which a number of MSS. insert 
against the metre. 

o 3. This will be the twenty-fourth line of the column without counting 11. 515-17, which were no doubt 
omitted as in many other MSS. From twenty-eight to thirty verses is the complement of the neighbouring 
pages, and a space of four or five lines must be allowed for the entry of the numbers of the books completed 
and begun on this page. 

48-9. These two verses, which are inserted at the bottom of the column by the first hand, were also 
originally omitted in H and a number of other MSS. The sign opposite 1. 48 is more commonly written with 
the straight stroke vertical, vL (cf. e.g. 1. 11) ; a corresponding sign was no doubt placed in the margin to show 
where the lines were to be placed. 

127. Since the preceding page ended with 1. 91 and the pages hereabouts do not contain more than thirty 
verses, it may be inferred that the codex agreed with PH, &c., and the text used by the Scholiast of P. Amh. 18 
in omitting 11. 1 13-19. This reduces the present page to the normal number of twenty-nine lines. 

150. It is not certain that 11. 150-1 and 318-19 are rightly identified. 

381. There was probably one more line below this in the column. 

<r 157-8. These two verses if rightly identified must have been originally omitted ; cf. 48-9. 



T 104. The identification of these letters, which partially adhere to the preceding leaf, is very doubtful. 

374. Nearer the end of this verse, at about the point where the letters va- should come, there appears to be 
a small o followed by an upright stroke ; but the space is too large for a[eK]oi{crav, and possibly the two letters 
belong to the preceding leaf and are the ott of TlrjveXoireia in 1. 308. 

474. (Tvy: so FOZ ; *nd\' others. 

573. ae]dKa : atdXov MSS. 

599. of d^vraiv has been corrected by the second hand from a 8.

103. 8' eKkve : so commonly MSS. *bl Kkve.

134. <j)i\r] Tpo<j)oi : soJU: *7i-«pi^/3<oj' others. Cf. x 492. 

160. *fs : so FGU ; ex others. On the other hand, FG have ixinjcrrfipes for the better supported Spr/o-T^pe?. 

197. This verse, originally omitted by mistake, was added below the column by the corrector, its place 
being as usual indicated in the left margin ; there is, however, no corresponding sign at the beginning of the 
omitted line. 

199. *es : so only U and Eust. ; its the rest. 

371. dvfjLov is a slip for ixvdov. 

30a. [crap]baviov : so HU Plato, Rep. 337 a East, &c. ; *(rap8owoi/ almost all MSS. The former is adopted 
by Allen. 

304, The omission of this line is probably due to homoeoarchon. 

308. br)fJL(DL : OtK(0 MSS. 

330. An angular mark above the first e of icr]xe[pi]ei'[ai is not easily interpreted as an acute accent, and 
seems too low down to be e.g. a. v from the previous line. 

<j> 3. The final jjt of ITjjrjeXoTTetrji were written by the corrector over an original a. 

13. aTovofvTe[s : the scribe first wrote crTovoeacra . [. 

43. /i of joteydpoio-i is similarly doubled in P ; cf. e.g. P. Brit. Mus. 733 {journal of Philology, xxvi. 51, 
p. 49) H 183 TpiyX-qva piJ.o[poe]vTa. 

47. 1. oxt]as. 

49. The accent of X€i/xd>i»t is all that remains of this verse. 

65-6. Line 66 (= <r 311) is also omitted in PHU and others ; the omission of 1. 65 seems to be peculiar 
to this codex. 

69. The first two letters of aid appear to have undergone some alteration. 

104. aW CO is a mistake for aX\b>. The first e of exj/eirdat. is written by the corrector through an original a. 
109. PHMU and a number of other MSS. agree in the omission of this line. 

lie. ToSe r : 1. robe y.

136. An otherwise unknown variant occurs here instead of the usual Iviik'nop.ivos ro'8e (j6 ye) Gvp.Q. It is 
not possible to read to ye or roBe, and the remains suggest Tjj^eXe, which was perhaps followed by 6vp.[oi rather 
than 0t)fi[(oi, as in v 40, <^ 373. What replaced i-rniknofievos is doubtful.

289. evi niJ.€ya[poi(n ](n : {nTep(f>ia.Xoiai p.e0' rjixiv MSS. If ]cn is right ixp-cyapoun or -ois was succeeded 

by some adjective ; it does not seem possible to read p.ed rip.]iv. For the doubled p. cf. <^ 42. 

291-2. The original omission of these verses, which have been supplied in the upper margin by the 
corrector, is probably to be explained by the homoeoteleuton axovets and aKovfi. 

304. 01 T : so FXDULWZ Eust. ; *oI 8' others.

168. o of ayo) was written by the corrector over an e. 

174. The omission of this verse, which was condemned by Bothe, seems to be peculiar to the present codex. 

177. brjd cjia: b-qdd MSS. The shortening of a vowel before Ci which is allowed by Homer before names 
like ZaKvvdos that cannot otherwise be brought into a hexameter, became a licence of later metrists, e. g. Oppian, 
Cyn. i. 9a nfcTcrodi Codijs. The deletion of the v is due to the second hand. 

181. eo-T* was deleted by the corrector. 

188. The mistaken sign of elision after £ is by the second hand, that after 8 by the first ; there is a faint 
mark meeting the latter, which is perhaps to be regarded as cancelled. 

191. This verse occurs in XLDW, &c. ; Ludw. omits it with the majority of MSS., and it is absent also 
in P. Oxy. 448.

77. davovToi was originally written, then the termination was altered to -a, and subsequently -os was 
restored. Possibly the -a was by the original hand ; the second -os with little doubt was due to the corrector. 

78-9. The omission of these two lines, probably caused by the homoeoteleuton davovros and davovra, 
appears to be peculiar to this MS. 

85. aiTiaaaa, which is a respectable variant (cf. e. g. 6 651, p 346), has been unintelligently altered by- the

An apostrophe above the a of Ktiva seems meaningless.

a and fi written opposite them in the margin ; cf. e. g. P. Oxy. 16. 26, 1018. 38.

Behnesa. 1 1.4 x 4-3 cm. Late first century B. c. or early first 

century A. D. Plate 4. 

Hesiod is still not very well represented among the papyri, and the following fragment 
from the Theogonia in spite of its meagre size is of some little interest on account of its early 
date. It is from the bottom of a column, and is inscribed in a medium-sized uncial hand, 
round and upright, which may be assigned with probability to the Augustan period. An 
acute accent in 1. 655 is likely to be a subsequent addition. On the verso are parts of seven 
lines of demotic. 

Four readings occur which are peculiar to the papyrus. One of them (1. 656) confirms 
a conjecture of Hermann, while the rest are of more questionable value, but merit attention 
in view of the antiquity of the MS. and its probable correctness as against other testimony 
in 1. 656.

Second century. Plate lo (Frag. 3). 

A Herodotean papyrus is as yet something of a rarity, the only fragments at present 
published being P. Oxy. 18 and 19 (Book i), 695 (Book v), and a Munich papyrus edited by 
Wilcken in Archiv i, p. 471 (Book i), none of which are of at all considerable compass. 
The following pieces from Book ii, though also of meagre proportions, are a welcome 
addition. They belong to a carefully written roll from which, to judge by the clean straight 
edges, they have been deliberately cut ; the verso, however, is in each case blank. The 
script is a handsome upright uncial, the letters being rather widely spaced and sometimes 
(e. g. K and t) finished off with small apices. In general appearance this hand, which 
is probably of the second century, recalls that of the Bacchylides papyrus, though there is 
an obvious difference in the formation of the w ; cf. also P. Oxy. 665. Stops in both the 
high and middle position occur, and some of these at least may be due to the original scribe, 
to whom no doubt the paragraphi and diaereses on initial iotas are to be referred ; but the 
stop in 1. 29 looks like a later addition, and the hand of a corrector is to be recognized in 
11. 20 and 34. A critical mark opposite 1. 33 is noticeable, as well as the very deep margin 
(6-7 cm.) at the top of Frag. 3.

first hand) opposite this line is uncertain. It is a combination of an obelus with a dipl6, and occurs among 
the fiofae simp/ices enumerated in Cod. Par. 7530, where it is said to designate a verse alienus et supervacuus 
(Dindorf, Schol. in Horn. II. I, p. xlix). For the occurrence of critical signs in prose papyri cf. 1. 48-9 and 
note ; a diple is found in a Hawara papyrus (15) of Xenophon's Cyropaedia. 

56. HIPPOCRATES, UepX lia.lT-^% oU<^v. 

7-1 X 5- 1 cm. Second century. 

The ends and beginnings of lines of two columns from the latter portion of Hippocrates' 
treatise Ile/ai Siai'rTjs o^iuiv. This portion of the treatise has been generally recognized from 
the time of Galen downwards to be a spurious accretion, and is expressly designated as voOa. 
in the best manuscripts. It is, however, of considerable antiquity. 

The two columns are written on the verso of the papyrus in a small but clear cursive 
hand, somewhat resembling that of the British Museum Herondas and belonging most 
probably to the first half of the second century. Such a date is also supported by the 
evidence of the recto, which bears the remains of a few lines from, apparently, some first- 
century document. A high stop is used twice, but this and the paragraphus are the only 
lection signs which occur ; they are apparently both due to the original scribe, who has 
also in one place entered a variant in the margin. Textually the fragment in spite of its 
small size is of some interest. As usual, it supports none of the three principal MSS., 
which are of the eleventh and twelfth centuries, at all consistently, agreeing for instance 
with A against MV in 11. 6 and 27-8, with MV against A in 11. 21, 23, and 25, and with 
AM against V in 1. 17, while occasionally it differs from them all ; cf. notes on 11. 7, 9, 13, 
and 15. The accompanying collation is based on the edition of Kuhlewein.

in 11. 4 and la. 

9. What exactly stood in the papyrus here is doubtful. The common reading is oo-ot 8^ roidbf l^own-i 
o-Tjfifia (so e. g. Kiihn), but A has m ol roiabe i\ovT(s a-qfi. (so Kiihlewein), MV having oaoi for m ol. The 
marginal variant okovoi roiabe apparently implies exovo-i, not exoyre9, in the text of the papyrus, and ex*"^]"^' '^^Y 
be read, though €x'"''']« is equally possible. But there is not room for oo-ot be Toiab{e} before «xH<^' ; perhaps 
OL (01) was written for oo-oi, or rabe for rotaSf. It is noticeable that there is no be in the margin after okoctol, but 
fie (or o)v) cannot be spared.

15. There is plenty of room for tjv, which is omitted in AMV, but is read by Kiihlewein on the authority 
of Foes and the various readings of J. Sambucus in Mack's edition.

likely, since without it the line is of rather more than average length.

25. It is practically certain that the papyrus had -noWa like MV, since otherwise this line would be quite 
abnormally short ; om. iroXKa A, and so Kiihlewein.

papyrus rather better.

may have some critical significance, but is quite likely to be accidental. 




HarJt. i2'7 x lo-S cm. Late second or early third century. Plate 10. 

Parts of two columns from the top of a roll inscribed with the De Corona. The verso 
of the fragment has been utihzed for a short letter from Heron to Heroninus, of whose 
correspondence, dating from about the middle of the third century, there are many other 
examples ; cf 16. Hence the text on the recto, which is written in sloping uncials of 
the common oval type, is not likely to be later than the first few decades of the third 
century, and may even go back to the end of the second ; cf e. g. the hand of the Oxy- 
rhynchus historian (P. Oxy. V, Plate V), which is a smaller and less regular example of the 
same style. The length of the horizontal strokes, especially in the t, is noticeable in this 
Demosthenes papyrus. A mark of elision is inserted twice, apparently by the original 
scribe. The only textual point worth remarking is the omission in Col. i of the contents of 
the ilrrj<fii(TfjiaTa and airoKpCa-eLs, which are cited in MSS. but bracketed by modern editors.

10-12. There is room for a line between 11. 10 and la, and it is evident that the two titles oTro'/cpto-is 
'Adrjvaioii (om. 'AOrjvalois O) and aTroVpuns ©jjjSaiois were combined in some way, but the arrangement suggested 
is quite uncertain. It is not very satisfactory, because the termination of ©rj^atots would not be expected to

Largest page 15-7 x lo-a cm. Fifth or sixth century. Plate 3 

(Fol. 4 recto, Fol. 5 recto). 

This is a singular papyrus. It consists of a quire of four sheets, the bottom one of 
which is so much damaged that of the last leaf only a piece of the inner margin remains. 
The inside of the first leaf and the six leaves following (Fol. 7 is blank) are inscribed with 
the final part of the De Corona, the actual end of the speech occurring on page 11, where 
the title of the work is given, followed by the subscription of the scribe, ' Good luck to the 
writer and to the reader.' It would naturally be supposed from this formal conclusion that 
the complete text of the oration had preceded, but this is not the case. Between each 
page there is a large omission amounting on an average to some 32 lines of the Oxford text, 
or about four times as much as the column of writing. The last line of a page is sometimes 
a short one, and the pages commence and break off in the middle of sentences, sometimes 
even of words (11. 89 and 194). The pages are numbered consecutively, so there can be no 
question of missing leaves ; can then the phenomena be explained by the hypothesis 
of a defective archetype ? That is the obvious solution, and is also suggested by the occur- 
rence of the short final lines which, as already mentioned, in some cases precede the gaps. 
The difficulty is that the pages were numbered from i to 11, starting from the inside of the 
first leaf, the outside of which was left blank. Hence it would appear that this quire was 
complete in itself, and not preceded by other quires ; and that an archetype so defective as 
to preserve only a few disjointed passages from the end of a long work would be thought 
worth perpetuating, especially when that work was one so well known as the De Corona, is 
not an easy supposition. On the other hand a mere dummy or toy could hardly be so 
elaborate. The most satisfactory explanation seems to be that the leaves were written 
out as an exercise, and so belong to the same class as 59, though representing a more 
advanced educational stage ; for a subscription, similar to that found here, at the end 
of a schoolbook cf. note on 11. 204-6. 

In this quaternion the disposition of the sheets was the opposite of that in 28, and the 
verso is uniformly underneath. The text is written in fairly regular sloping uncials of 
medium size, the ink used being of a reddish-brown shade, v is noticeable for its low cross- 
bar ; and the tail of the v is sometimes flourished below the line. Stops occur in the high, 
middle, and low position, marks of elision (which are written also after ovk and ovx) are not 
infrequent, and there are a few rough breathings of a rounded shape. An uncommon 
abbreviation of (w) dvBp€<; 'kO-qvaioi is employed ; cf. note on 1. 92. The papyrus is evidently 
of Byzantine times, but not of the latest period ; it may be assigned to the fifth or earlier 
part of the sixth century. Its text is of a mediocre quality ; there is no consistent agreement 
with any one manuscript or group of manuscripts. The chief peculiarity is a tendency to 
omission ; cf notes on 11. 5, 122, 170, 190.

be determined ; the breadth of the line to that point would be about 17 cm. The letters, 
which are upright and rather large, are quite well formed ; d and o are extremely narrow. 
On the verso in the same hand is part of another line of doubtful purport, besides other 
more illegible remains. The papyrus may date from the third century.

Fayflm. Frag. 2 13-7x42 cm. Late second century. Plate 10. 

In the year 1901 some papyrus fragments from the eleventh book of Polybius belonging 
to the Berlin Museum (P. 9570) were published by Wilcken in Archiv i, pp. 388 sqq., and 
were remarkable for the excellence of their text, which was frequently superior to that of 
the mediaeval MSS. It is therefore very satisfactory that some further pieces of the same 
papyrus should have come to light in the Rylands Library. That the fragments at Berlin 
and at Manchester belong to a single roll is obvious without any actual comparison of hand- 
writing, for not only have they identical characteristics, e. g. in the length of the lines, and 
the accounts on the verso, but it is clear that the new pieces are the bottoms of the columns 
of which the upper portions are preserved at Berlin. They fit accurately into the lacunae, 
the combination producing six consecutive columns, of which the second is represented 
only by the small Berlin Frag. B, while the other five are in a fair state of preservation. 
Perhaps the missing parts of Col. ii may yet make their appearance in some other 

The text is written in tall columns of about 35 lines; this was most probably the 
number in Col. vi, the best preserved of the series. A column of that length would occupy 
a space of approximately 22 cm., and since the margin at the bottom measures 3—4 cm., 
the height of the complete roll may be estimated at 29 to 30 cm. The script is a rather 
large round uncial, which I should agree with Wilcken in placing near the year 200, though 
somewhat before rather than after that date. Wilcken is led to the contrary opinion by an 
isolated instance of the use of a comma-like sign between two gammas, for which there is 
as yet no clear evidence before the third century. But this is no very certain indication, 
even if the mark in question proceeds from the original scribe and not from the corrector 
who has made other insertions in the MS. (P. Berlin Frag. A 8, Frag. C 7-8). The hand 
is of the type of which P. Oxy. 844, for example, is a more carefully written and probably 
rather earlier specimen, and suggests the latter part of the second century rather than the 
third. It was not, however, till about the year 276 (Wilcken, /. c. ; cf Archiv v, p. 273) that 
the verso came to be used for accounts and taxing-lists. 

The excellent qualities conspicuous in the text of the fragments previously published 
are thoroughly maintained in the present supplementary pieces. They confirm five con- 
jectures, of which Casaubon's 6epo<; for reXos in 15. 7, the same scholar's insertion of ebOioi-i 
yap in 16. 4 (both rejected by Biittner-Wobst), and Gronovius' addition of irapa ry]v tu>v rjyov- 
ixdvcov before iinreipiav in 14. 2, are the most striking. On the other hand the efforts of 
Schweighauser and Casaubon to emend 16. 7-8 are shown to have been on wrong lines ; 
and further new and doubtless true readings are supplied in 14. 2 twi' . . . t6 ttoXu for TrXeto-ra 
tS>v, is 7 ayopLevrjv, and 16. 4 e'f dpxrj<; ; cf notes on 11. 2-5, 35, 47-50, and 57. In a few 
places, e. g. 11. 23, 54, 59, the superiority of the papyrus is more questionable, while in some 
others evident errors have crept in ; cf. notes on 11. 8-9, 18, 20, and 32. The singular mis- 
spelling in 1. 20 suggests that the scribe was a person of small intelligence, though a faithful 
copyist of what he saw or thought that he saw.

The corruption was probably caused by the homoioteleuton of avvTf\ov\j.ivwv and r)yovii.iviav : to tuKv would thus

39. Ti)v is apparently the reading of the MSS., tlv Reiske, Hultsch, and B.-Wobst. The papyrus may 
have had either rr)v or riva. It is possible that the letters Trap of vnapytiv also stood in this line.

Casaubon's emendation tidioys yap ... 6 <I>iXo7rotju'?i'i which had been accepted by Hultsch and others, is now 
substantially vindicated. Casaubon could not have divined the loss of f$ ap)(TJi as well as ydp. 

55. iroXkoLs yap i/Stj toijto avixpe^rjKfv MSS., but there is not room for so much as this, and the omission of 
ToCro leaves the right number of letters for the lacuna. That toOto is correctly omitted by the papyrus is, 
however, not so clear. 

57. a]^(.oxp(a>i {K[pivav (T<l>a]s : a^io'xpeos a-ipas MSS., a^ioxpecas he vop-iaavTe^ atpas Schweighauser, who is 
followed by Hultsch and B.-Wobst. (k[ in the papyrus is evidently a finite verb and eK[pivav seems an almost 
certain supplement. This new reading has the great advantage of harmonizing with the following fxaxpav 8' 
airovj in which the papyrus and MSS. agree, and renders superfluous Casaubon's alteration into (xaKpav 
eavTovs (so Hultsch and B.-Wobst). 

59. vTrfv]av[Ti]oLs: so the MSS., but the supplement in 1. 59 is slightly long for the lacuna, in which seven 
letters would be quite sufficient. The papyrus may therefore have omitted inr. At the ends of the lines, 
however, the writing is sometimes more compressed, and the traditional reading is not impossible. 

60. bia[y](iiviC[f<r]9ai. : aycavL(ea6aL MSS. The only difficulty about this decipherment of the papyrus is the 
existence of a short curved stroke connecting the tops of the supposed la, which has to be explained as 
accidental ; the letter following 8 has thus rather the effect of a y, an impossible combination. There is no 
sign of the 6 having been altered. 

63. 6 avTovs: so MSS., iavrovs Casaubon, wrongly ; cf. note on I. 57. 

64. bovTfs : so rightly G, Regii FG ; 8oWas F, and S except G.

parallel passage 16. 6 the papyrus has the spelling tp. Tropetai (P. Berlin Frag. E 12). 

70. av: hi MSS., 6^ Casaubon. Since the sentence is incomplete the merits of the new reading cannot be 
determined. The appearance of the papyrus rather suggests that some ink has been cleaned off in the place 
where av stands, but those two letters were certainly written by the original scribe. 




i3-a X i6-4 cm. Fifth century. Plate VIII (recto). 

A Cicero papyrus is a welcome no velty,i although by a stroke of bad luck the passages 
covered by the present fragment, parts of §§ 14-15 of the second speech against Catiline, 
happen to be deficient in points of much textual interest. Compared with the editions of 
MuUer and Clark the fragment differs only in the order of the words a me esse (1. 29, for 
esse a wg), where it agrees with Monacensis 461 1 (= b), a twelfth-century manuscript of the 
/S family, against most other authorities. Another divergence from MSS. of the a family is 
seen in 1. 13. But the agreement with b is not consistent, for in 1. 17 the papyrus has 
esse, which b and s (Monac. 15964, of the same family as b) omit. Apparently then the 
heterogeneous character displayed not infrequently by papyri in the case of Greek authors 
is to be traced here also, though the material hardly suffices for a generalization. 

This manuscript, which was in book form, was not of the ordinary kind, but was 
designed for a Greek-speaking reader imperfectly acquainted with the Latin language. 
The Latin words are arranged singly or in small groups in one column, and a parallel 
column gives the literal equivalents in Greek. But though of the nature of a schoolbook, 
and no example of calligraphy, the papyrus is not in an unpractised hand. Both the Latin 
original and the Greek rendering were written by one person, who used the brown ink 
characteristic of the Byzantine period. The Latin script is in the mixed uncial style which 
has occurred in several other papyri, and resembles for instance that of P. Oxy. 31 and 
P. Amh. 27. Marks of long quantity occur in 1. 8, and a point in the middle position is 
used to divide two words in 1. 16 (cf. P. Oxy. 871). The Greek is in irregular uncials, 
also with some cursive admixture. Their appearance suggests the end of the fourth or the 
fifth century, and the papyrus may be assigned with probability to the period from about 
400 to 450 A.D. It may therefore claim to be the oldest authority for this speech of Cicero 
by some four centuries. 

The collation given below depends on the editions of Halm and Clark. Greek 
equivalents of the Latin words are supplied, where missing, exempli gratia.
