P.Köln X 406; P.Koeln X 406; Gregory-Aland P118; 𝔓118
4 fragments containing Paulus Romans 15:26–27 and 32–33, as well as 16:1.4–7 and 16:1.11.
The fragments preserve 2 columns with an intercolumnal space measuring 2 cm wide. The original sheet is estimated to have been approx. 27 x 34 cm. The text contains inorganic diaereses and several nomina sacra.
The text is written in a coarse, large majuscule, which Römer assesses to much later than the 3rd c. pace the ed. pr.; see Römer 2004: 277. The script has more recently been re-described and dated accordingly; it is identified as a rounded bureaucratic script in Clarysse / Orsini 2012: 465.

Palaeography. The fragments are dated to the 3rd c. by the ed. pr. as well as Clarysse / Orsini 2012: 465 and 472, who compare the script to P66 (early 3rd c. Gospel of John, Panopolis).
The fragments are also dated much later, to the 5/6 c. in Römer 2004: 277, who uses P.Amh. 192 (6th c. Old Testament text, provenance N/A) and PSI I 1 (late 5th. Gospel of Matthew, Oxyrhynchus) as comparanda.
