This papyrus, the tattered remains (about 1,000 letters) of an elegant roll, was edited by C. H. Roberts in vol. xviii of The Oxyrhynchus Papyri, published in 1941. Out of a total of fifty-three fragments he located twenty-nine; the twenty-four which he left unlocated are mere scraps, averaging six-and-a-half letters (maximum twelve, minimum two), with about a third of their letters represented by ambiguous and sometimes minimal remains. This chapter summarizes the following: (a) hitherto unknown, and possibly true: 524, 528; (b) hitherto unknown, and evidently false: 109, 438; (c) agreeing with a true variant against a false: 294, 461, 525; (d) agreeing with the medieval tradition in a reading which is commonly corrected: 200.
