P.Oxy. X 1225; Aland AT23

Papyrus fragment containing Leviticus 16:33-34.

The ed. pr. notes that the uncial script is highly sloping, and that punctuation (middle stops) probably was added at a later point due to the ink being noticeably different from the brown ink used originally. The text contains several diaereses, and lacks a left-side margin in l. 4-5 and 7.  The nomina sacra can be conjectured in the lacunae.

The verso is left blank.
