Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a diplomatic transcript and a reconstruction, spacing words, and proposing restorations of fragment of Paul, the fragment of 0270. It gives a description of the fragment, also paying attention to such aspects as its paleography and date. Next, the chapter sets forth particular points in the transcript and reconstruction, and finally it discusses the study of the text of the fragment. 0270 consists of two adjoining fragments of one leaf. Two pages of 0270 contain as much text as one page in Nestle's edition of the Greek New Testament. In 0270, the number of lines to the page is 26. The writing is a small-sized "Biblical Majuscule", written in a firm and careful hand, showing a marked difference between thin horizontals and heavy verticals and, partly, obliques. The text of 0270 was probably, in several respects, a very good old Egyptian text.

Keywords: Biblical Majuscule; diplomatic transcript; fragment of Paul; Greek New Testament; old Egyptian text
