P.Köln I 11; P.Koeln I 11; 

A papyrus fragment (4 x 8.5 cm) containing a homily or a commentary which includes an analogy of the garden and Paradise. 

The ed. pr. describes the hand and script as very similar to P. Palau Rib. inv. 72 (A  patristic text and homily(?) from the 4th c., provenance N/A).

On the recto, only the first line remains due to the loss of the fibres of the upper layer. On the verso, 9 lines are preserved. No punctuation or diacritical signs are visible, and there occurs only one nomen sacrum (for θεός "God", in l. 7 and 9 of the verso).
