Notes/Discussion:

Worrell and Crum were aware of only 11 papyri in the Coptic Wizard’s Hoard. Paul A. Mirecki discovered in the Michigan collection 27 fragments of what he suggests is another papyrus belonging to this collection (Meyer, Smith 1999: p. 294).

Copy of part of text B.

Usually understood as applied text, but contains generic name marker on verso l. 9.
