Papyrus Oxyrhynchos 840
I got this out-of-copyright version of the text from Peter
Kirby's site. My contribution was simply to add a little
markup here and there. If your browser does not support this format,
or the markup is coming out as garbage, there is a markup-free version
Wieland Willker's site. Please notify me of any errors -- they are
probably my fault.
Other than as noted below, this page uses standard papyrological
markup, which I have summarized on this link.|
Accents have been provided by Grenfell and Hunt, although the document does contain a few accent marks, whose presence are indicated here by letters in bold. This manuscript like many other literary documents from this period marks rough breathing with a dieresis, which I (and the editors) have omitted since it is supplied by standard polytonic breathing marks. A blue punctuation mark means that there is a punctuation in the ms. itself, although only as a mid-line dot. The editor may have supplied a more appropriate punctuation mark depending on context (it is greyed if the editor had no punctuation there, but the manuscript did). The two long spaces are in the original, and indicate a paragraph change. Obviously, other spaces are provided by the editor.
Purple numbers and text represent the structure of the document itself (page and line numbers). Red numbers are the chapter/verse structure assigned to this fragment in Miller, Robert, ed. (1994). The complete gospels (San Francisco: HarperCollins).
The text was first published in Grenfell, Bernard P. & Arthur S. Hunt, eds. (1908). The Oxyrhynchus papyri, Part V. London.
