P.Oxy. VII 1010

Fragment from a small, miniature codex (8.4 cm x 5.6 cm) containing three verses of the Apocalypse of Esdras (16.57-59) (= 4 Ezra 15-16 in the Vulgate) written in uncial. The recto contains the number μ ("40"), which could refer either to the pagination (preferred) or to the number of the folio; see ed. pr.

The text should not be confused with the Ezra of P.Oxy. LXIII 4365; see Epp 2004: 34.
