Papyrus 65 (PSI 1373), P65
3rd Century CE.
May be Oxyrhynchus, Egypt.
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.
I Thessalonians 1:3-2:1, 6-13.
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.
