PB 19

Parchment codex containing the Gospel According to Matthew 14:28-28:20 and Romans 1-1:1-2:3 in Coptic (Sahidic).
Description: P.Bodmer 19 is a well-preserved parchment codex containing the end of the Gospel according to Matthew and the beginning of Paul’s letter to the Romans in Coptic (Sahidic with some peculiarities). The codex was rebound in antiquity between two wooden boards. The outer edges of several leaves have been repaired with rectangular parchment patches. A letter from Louis Doutreleau to Victor Martin of 26 August 1956 mentions Phocion Tano’s delivery of a batch of books containing material by “St. Paul.” Robinson interprets this as a reference to P.Bodmer 19 and places the date of its acquisition as some point between July and September of 1956 (Robinson, The Story of the Bodmer Papyri, 43).
