P.Schøyen I 14 (P.Schoyen I 14); P.Rainer Cent. 27
Parchment fragments from a miniature codex reused as binding. The fragment contains Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus 29:13-26.
The two fragments measure 4.5 x 5 cm and 7 x 7 cm. The original size of the miniature codex is estimated to have been approx. 11 x 9 cm. The parchment fragment was reused as binding, similarly to P.Schøyen I 18.
The hand is described as a small, neat Biblical majuscule, and the borders of the folio are lined.
The fragment confirms the rarely attested reading of "τὸ στόμα" in verse 24; see Treu 1984: 60.
According to Römer, the editio princeps (P.Rainer Cent. 27) is preferable to the reedition (P.Schøyen I 14) as concerns the line division and layout of the transcript; see Römer 2005: 339.
