The Oxyrhynchus Papyri LXXI (online preview)

Oxyrhynchus Papyri 71
edited by N Gonis

Not yet listed in Worldcat; "not yet availble" according to Oxbow Books, but images and cataloguing info are available at the Oxyrhynchus Online site.

Blurb from Oxbow Books:
This volume adds to previously published early Christian texts four new papyri of the Gospel of John and also includes fragments of a lost play by Sophocles (Epigonoi), two prose works on Hellenistic historians and Hellenistic kings, a rhetorical exercise on speeches in Thucydides, and a lost novel with an Ionian setting. A further group of papyri of Iliad and related Homeric texts, including a paraphrase of Iliad I (its texts transmitted verbatim by at least two other papyri), scholia minora to Iliad I, and commentaries on Odyssey III and XV with scholarly credentials. Documentary texts include declarations of livestock, loans, leases, and other contracts. Finally it records publication of a group of drawings that appeared outside the series but assigns Oxyrhynchus publication numbers to them for the first time. Images of the drawings were prepared for and will be published in the volume Oxyrhynchus A City and its Texts (GRM 93) and Egyptian Archaeology 22. 188p (Graeco-Roman Memoirs 91, Egypt Exploration Society 2007)
