Papyrus 65 (PSI 1373), P65

Date

3rd Century CE.

Provenance

May be Oxyrhynchus, Egypt.

Size

The original size may have been around 18 cm. x 25 cm. Bartoletti pointed out the similarities between the script of P65 and P49. It seems that these two manuscripts may be from the same codex.

Contents

I Thessalonians 1:3-2:1, 6-13.

Textual Character

According to Metzger, this papyrus has Alexandrian text type. The Alands believe that it is most likely a "strict" text. The text is too brief to ascertain the precise text type.

It is written in a documentary hand.
