Bodmer XXIII; P. Bodmer 23
Papyrus codex containing Isaiah 47:1-66:24 in Coptic (Sahidic). The papyrus of the codex itself is of a poor quality forcing the scribe to skip over the imperfections in the papyrus while writing (page 33). The text is written in a remarkably pure Sahidic (Kasser, Papyrus Bodmer XXIIII, 23). [Source: Bodmer Lab].

"This is one of the few codices of the 'Bodmer Papyri' that can be dated with confidence thanks to information gathered from the documents extracted from the front of its leather cover (economic information places the documents in the early fourth century; the cover must have been constructed at some point after that)." (Bodmer Lab)

Unclear provenance; reportedly found at Ǧabal Abū Mannāʿ near Dishna (Upper Egypt) in 1952 (part of the “Dishna Papers” alongside several other Bodmer Papyri), possibly the location of a Pachomian monastery, see Robinson 2011, Lundhaug 2018.
