Constellation Papyri

PB 51

Fragment of a papyrus roll containing syllabic exercises (P.Bodmer 51 recto), reused for a scientific or ethnographic text (P.Bodmer 51 verso), extracted from the cover of P.Bodmer 23
Description: This portion of a roll extracted from the lining of the leather cover of P.Bodmer 23 was first used for an educational exercise consisting of a partially alphabetized list of names divided into syllables (P.Bodmer 51 recto) copied along the fibers (→). The blank back of the papyrus (↓) was later reused to copy a scientific or ethnographic treatise (copied upside down relative to the educational exercise, P.Bodmer 51 verso) before being used as waste papyrus in the construction of the cover of P.Bodmer 23.
