P.Yale II 88
Papyrus fragment containing a Biblical commentary or homily, with a quotation from Isaias 61:10-11.
The fragment measures 8.5 x 3.7 cm (9 x 3.6 cm in the ed pr.) and contains 12 lines of text. The verso is blank.
The ed. pr. explains the connection to the homiletic context as coming from the verb introducing the Isaias quotation (contained in l. 5-9) in l. 4; "γέγραπται" ("it is written"). The context of the homily/commentary is uncertain.
The hand is described as a large and elegant, right-sloping uncial in the Severe style. There is no visible punctuation, and the text preserves only one nomen sacrum in line 5.
