P.Oxy. 13 1605

15 x 5.2


Menander, Misoumenos

(3rd century)

This exiguous fragment of a comedy, though containing only the beginnings of 27 lines from the top of a column and a few letters from the ends of lines of the preceding column, has some interest, since it can with much probability be identified, because of a name mentioned in the text and one inserted in the margin. The handwriting is a medium sized sloping uncial, probably of the 3rd century, to which some dated documents found together with the present were found. Paragraphi occur, indicating changes of speaker, but no stops.
