Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 228
Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 228 (P. Oxy. 228 or P. Oxy. II 228) is a fragment of the Laches, a dialogue of Plato, 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 century. It is housed in the Bodleian Library (Ms. Gr. Class. a 8) in Oxford.
The document was written by an unknown copyist. It contains the text of the Laches (197 A - 198 A ) of Plato. The measurements of the fragment are 255 by 150 mm. The text is written in an upright square uncial hand of medium size. It has a remarkable number of variant textual readings. The occasional corrections were apparently made by the original scribe.
