Papyrus Collection Available

Papyrus Collection Available (Oxyrhynchus)

What's New in Papyrology wishes to inform the papyrologist community of a
unique papyrus collection that is being sold by a US seminary. Its Board of
Trustees is exploring the sale of its papyrus collection, most of which (8
of 9) are from the well documented Oxyrhynchus excavation. The most
interesting piece is a Fourth Century fragment of I Peter 5:6-12. It is
written in a hand closely resembling that of the famed Codex Sinaiticus.
Corporate Development Associates, Inc. (CDA) is assisting the board by
contacting prospective interested parties and has prepared overview of the
collection which you can be secured at
this link.

In the coming weeks, CDA plans to email Offer Letter Instructions to those
who might want to submit an offer to purchase this collection. CDA expects
the collection to sell in a $ range of low-to-mid six figures. There is a
possibility the fragments will sell separately, but they believe the
collection will be worth more together. If you or an organization you are
affiliated with would like the Offer Letter Instructions when CDA issues
them, please email Jim Hollander at CDA and request to be included on the
list - jimhollander@cda@inc.net.
