Papyrus 113 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by 113, is a fragment of an early copy of a section of the New Testament in Greek. It comes from a papyrus manuscript of the Epistle to the Romans. The surviving text features parts of Romans 2:12-13 on one side of the fragment and parts of 2:29 on the other.

The manuscript paleographically has been assigned by the INTF to the 3rd century. Comfort dated it to the first half of the 3rd century.[1] The manuscript is currently housed at the Papyrology Rooms, of the Sackler Library at Oxford University with the shelf number P. Oxy. 4497.[2]


Although Comfort stated that the Greek text of this codex is too small to determine its textual character,[1] word-spacing analysis indicates that it contained the Alexandrian omission of του in verse 13.

No readings to be added.[3]
