Textual Character

As might be expected, this papyri is too fragmentary for any textual affiliations to be discerned. It is not noticeably close to P66 nor to the Coptic, nor does it support or B in singular or near-singular readings. Generally speaking, the verses in this papyri approximates very close to the Textus Receptus.

Writing

The script is a well-formed small rounded capital, basically bilinear.

Location

Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, United Kingdom.
