Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 107 (P. Oxy. 107 or P. Oxy. I 107) is an acknowledgement of receipt of a will, sent in regard to its revocation. It is written in Greek and was discovered in Oxyrhynchus. The manuscript was written on papyrus in the form of a sheet. The document was written on 27 February 123. Currently it is housed in the Egyptian Museum (Cat. Gen. 10006) in Cairo.[1]


The document consists of an acknowledgement, addressed to Horion, clerk of the agoranomeion (ἀγορανομεῖον), of the receipt of a will made ten years before, which the testator now wished to revoke. The measurements of the fragment are 338 by 130 mm.[2]

It was discovered by Grenfell and Hunt in 1897 in Oxyrhynchus. The text was published by Grenfell and Hunt in 1898.[2]
