Constellation Papyri

PB 43

A folded papyrus leaf from a codex containing Zostrianos in Coptic (Sahidic).
Description: P.Bodmer 43, a papyrus leaf from a codex containing the work known as Zostrianos, shows clear signs of having been folded several times, which suggests to the editors that it may have been used as an amulet. Based on the assumption that, since this text begins and ends so abruptly, it must have once been part of a codex and not originally designed as an amulet, Kasser and Luisier attempt to estimate the size of the original codex. Based on the size of the parallel text of Zostrianos found in the Nag Hammadi Codex VIII, they estimate that this codex would have been 111 pages, and this leaf would have been page 99/100 or 100/101.
