Papyrus 16 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by 16, is an early copy of the New Testament in Greek. It was originally a papyrus manuscript of the Pauline Corpus of letters, but now only contains Philippians 3:10-17; 4:2-8. The manuscript has been paleographically assigned to the late 3rd century.
The manuscript is written in a documentary hand. There is about 37-38 lines per page. Grenfeld and Hunt conjectured that 15 and 16 might have been part of the same manuscript. Both manuscripts have the same formation of letters, line space, and punctuation.
The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type (rather proto-Alexandrian). Aland placed it in Category I. This manuscript staying in great agreement with Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus.
