P.Lond.Copt. II 189
Fragment from the innermost end of a papyrus roll bearing a Coptic translation of the Didache or Teaching of the Twelve Apostles (10-12). The text is the unique witness of a variety of Fayyumic dialect (subdialect V5, according to Rodolphe Kasserʼs classification; Kasser 1990, 147). The papyrus might originate from the Oxyrynchite nome, based on the dialect, but provenance is not certain.
