Lead paragraph[edit]

Please add a lead paragraph at the beginning explaining what this list is a list of and a link to the original article -- otherwise it looks like these Papyri might not meet the WP:GNG. Some of them should have references to other sources. Yay Papyri articles! I just want to make sure that they're done right. Thanks! -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 16:55, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. I've been working on the table for so long, and I was so happy to finally get through it, that I popped it out into article space without even considering a lead paragraph. I put a couple of sentences in. Let me know what you think. I might put a little more in later. I took the liberty of adding a section title, although these articles don't get a whole lot of discussion. I hope that's acceptable to you. These articles don't tend to get a whole lot of discussion, but maybe someday that will change. — alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 17:12, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
For notability, I'm relying somewhat on WP:LISTN. This is mildly sketchy, because I don't have a source discussing these actual 48 papyri as a group, but since most of them were republished at some point (see the "other numbers") column, most of them are notable enough on their own, I believe.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 17:16, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Looks great! thanks! -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 20:08, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
