Collection History:

The present text was donated to the BNF in 1916 along with the four Greek texts Suppl.Grec. 1336-1339, and was apparently mistaken for the fifth Greek text mentioned by Albert Gayet as having been found in the grave of Aurelius Kollouthos. This means that its provenance is uncertain, but, given its apparently closeness in date to the more secure texts from this group, it seems reasonable to think that it may have been among the Coptic papyri discovered by Gayet in the cemetery of Antinoopolis, and perhaps even in the grave of Aurelius Kollouthos (KD).
