Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 291
Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 291 (P. Oxy. 291 or P. Oxy. II 291) is a fragment of a Letter of a Strategus, in Greek. It was discovered in Oxyrhynchus. The manuscript was written on papyrus in the form of a sheet. It was written between 25-26. Currently it is housed in the British Library (Department of Manuscripts 800) in London.
The measurements of the fragment are 230 by 150 mm. The document is mutilated.
The text is written in a fine, bold, semi-uncial hand, with an unusual tendency to separation of words. P.Oxy 292 is of the same handwriting. Probably it was written by a professional scribe attached to the strategus.
