State Preservation3 full height columns of 40 lines each (41 in col. 3); only col. 2 is complete, but substantial parts of the two others remain.
The text is written upside down in relation to the verso. The small fragment P.Oxy. 65, 4451 (M.W. Haslam, 1998) very probably belongs to the first roll of the same work.

Lectional signsblank spaces, sometimes accompanied by paragraphos, used to separate the lemmata from the comments and to mark pauses in the sense; occasional use of diplÍ in front of lemma; obelos (3) used to mark verses athetized by Aristarchus; trema (several); occasional quantity marks; iota adscript generally written; many abbreviations; chrisms in margins; corrections (by the same scribe), but some errors and misspellings remain.
Handgenerally small (letters vary in size from medium to tiny), informal, round, leaning forward, roughly bilinear, somewhat irregular, but of even alignment, closely spaced, rapidly executed with some cursive elements, though generally separating the letters; gives the impression of being cursive and can hardly be described as "pulchrisque [litteris] scriptus" as done by Erbse.
