Papyrus 111 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by 111, is a copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Gospel of Luke, containing verses 17:11-13 & 17:22-23 in a fragmentary condition. The manuscript has been paleographically assigned by the INTF to the 3rd Century CE. Papyrologist Philip Comfort dates the manuscript to the first half of the 3rd century CE.[1] The manuscript is currently housed at the Sackler Library (Papyrology Rooms, P. Oxy. 4495) at Oxford.[2]


Due to the fragmentary nature of the manuscript, it's not possible to determine the manuscripts original width and length. But from the extant text, P. Comfort estimates around 21-22 lines a page. The extant text conforms with 75. The handwriting script is representative of the Documentary style.[3]

The manuscript has only one nomen sacrum extant: ιηυ.
