P.Nag Hamm. 73: Letter to Sansnos (?)
Two adjoining fragments of a letter, addressed to "my beloved brother Sansnos" (but the name is badly damaged) and someone else (Apo--).
This Sansnos might be the same person as the priest in PNH 77-78, the monk in PNH 72 and the "beloved father" in PNH 68, see M. Choat (in Choat and Giorda 2017: 35-36); about the letters addressed to him, see also Bagnall 2018: 80-85.
Recto: written along the fibres. Verso: address, along the fibres.
