Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 232
Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 232 (P. Oxy. 232 or P. Oxy. II 232) is a fragment of Contra Timocratem by Demosthenes, written in Greek. It was discovered in Oxyrhynchus. The manuscript was written on papyrus in the form of a roll. It is dated to the second or third century. Currently it is housed in the British Library (Department of Manuscripts, 787) in London.
The document was written by an unknown copyist. It contains the text of Contra Timocratem (53-54, 56-58) by Demosthenes. The measurements of the fragment are 130 by 140 mm. The text is written in a medium sized, sloping uncial hand. Palaeographically it resembles the Oxyrhynchus Homer. There are neither rough breathings nor accents, and only one stop occurs.
