Notes/Discussion:

Greek parallel edited by Bickell (G. Bickell, Das älteste liturgische Schriftstück in Mitteilungen aus der Sammlung der Papyrus Erzherzog Rainer II. und III. Band, Wien 1886, p. 83-87), dated to the beginning of the 4th century (Wessely, Oesterreichische Monatsschrift für den Orient 1884, p. 152). Coptic paralell: P.Ryl.Copt. 26 (BerlPap).

Mihálykó follows MacCoull in attributing BKT VI 6 2 to one scriptorium where Arabic documents were reused to copy Greek hymns most likely located in Hermopolis (Mihálykó 2019: p. 91).
