Information on Publications--Notes
- There are two small pieces from the same papyrus, which have been not joined to the main portion. Both preserve ink on them. In one of them an iota could be read but certainly does not go to i[ereon in l. 4. The other preserves parts of one or two letters but the ink is faint.
