Chapter Summary

In a recent study Michael J. Kruger has asked questions about the original purpose and usage of Oxyrhynchus Papyri (P.Oxy.) V 840 (Bodl. MS Gr. th. g. 11 [P]) and the principal distinction between amulets and miniature codices. Hypotheses once formed in the beginning of commenting on P.Oxy. V 840, including the identification as amulet and/or miniature codex, were and still are just taken over. The parchment used for P.Oxy. V 840 is of fine and even quality. The writing of the reverse side is slightly shining through, but remains fainter than the writing of the side looked at. The leaf is in fine condition with the exception of a diagonal loss of papyrus, sporadic traces of later darkening, and some occasional holes, but because of the preserved four margins the dimensions of the page can easily be established.

Keywords: Michael J. Kruger; miniature codex; Oxyrhynchus Papyri (P.Oxy.) V 840; parchment
