Notes/Discussion:

According to the available information it appears that this manuscript was purchased after the implementation of the Egyptian law no. 117 of 1983 on the protection of antiquities, as amended by law no. 3 of 2010, and has not been demonstrated to have left Egypt before this date. For this reason, we provide a basic description of its material format in order to allow it to be traced, but do not comment on its contents, in accordance with the International Association of Coptic Studies Resolution on the Ethical Handling of Cultural Heritage, adopted after the meeting of 16 July 2022.
