PB 21

Portion of a papyrus codex containing Joshua and Tobit in Coptic (Sahidic).
Description: P.Bodmer 21 is part of a papyrus codex containing Joshua and Tobit in Coptic (Sahidic). The portions of Joshua 6:16-25; 7:6-11:23; 22:1-2; 22:19-23:7; 23:15-24:2 are found in the Bodmer Foundation. Joshua 1:1-6:16; 6:25-7:7; 22:2-19; 23: 7-15; 24:23-33, and the final verses from the Book of Tobit are housed in the Chester Beatty Library as Ac. 1389. The title page of the codex claims that the book contains the Book of Joshua and the Book of Judith, but no known part of the book of Judith survives. The page number of the surviving folio from Tobit is only partially visible and it is not possible to determine if it was originally numbered along with the original codex or not. There are instances of tears that are repaired by a knotted loop of thread. The dialect is Sahidic with subachmimic influences. Records in the Chester Beatty Library indicate that Ac. 1389 was acquired in the summer of 1956 (Robinson, The Story of the Bodmer Papyri, 61). Presumably P.Bodmer 21 arrived in Geneva at roughly the same time.
