P.Oxy. LXXIII 4934 containing the First Epistle of Peter; Gregory-Aland P125; Gregory-Aland 𝔓125
The fragment preserves 44 fragmentary lines from a codex containing the First Epistle of Peter, 1:23-2:5, 7-12. The handwriting is medium size, slightly right-sloping, largely bilinear; traits of the Severe Style comparable to the Christian letters P.Herm. 4, P.Herm. 5 and to P.Oxy. VII 1008 (see Blumell/Wayment 2015: 163).
If the date is correct, this could be the earliest evidence of the epistles of Peter in Oxyrhynchus; see ed. pr.
