Ghedini 1933: 667-673

Papyrus fragments containing an euchologium.

The four fragments (containing 11, 12, 8 and 7 lines of text respectively) contain a liturgical text on the recto, while the verso is left blank. 

There are several nomina sacra, and a diagonal stroke marking the end of the verse in l. 6 of fragment B. This division is further marked by an enlarged space between lines 5 and 6.

The liturgical text presents a prayer for the penitents.
