Quoted Author[Homerus, Odyssea 20]; Homerus; Demetrius (Ixion?); Zenodotus; Aristophanes; Nicophon; Rhianus; Aristonicus; Parmenon Byzantius; Aristarchus Samius; Thales; Heraclitus; Diodorus (of Alexandria?); Crates
Genrecommentary (continuous lemmata)
TypeHomerica, philology, philosophy, astronomy
Contentscommentary on Odyssey 20, of comprehensive scope (almost line by line); a product of mainstream Homeric criticism, as represented by the surviving scholiastic corpus; it is on a fuller scale than the existing Odyssey scholia, and much more liberal in naming its authorities, more resembling the Iliad scholia in this respect; various points of contact with the D-scholia and others are discernible; the commentator's text of Homer was not the vulgate, but perhaps Aristarchean; besides these textual variants the commentary also offers a fragment of comedy and an astronomical exposition with a citation of Thales and quotations from Heraclitus

State Preservationremains of 4 consecutive columns (main fragment), written on papyrus of good quality, broken of on all sides, but lower margin at some places preserved; besides, a detached piece, which may come from the upper part of col. 1 of the main fragment, broken of on all sides, upper margin partially preserved; there is a kollÍsis between col. 1 and col. 2; intercolumnium with a width of 2 cm; column height is unknown but at least 22.9 cm, occupied by at least 55 lines; the columns are affected by Maas' law

Lectional signslemmata are distinguished by ekthesis and paragraphos (sometimes misplaced), and the text is further articulated by means of short intratextual blank spaces, rarely of more than one or two letters' width; a few high stops
iota adscript mostly written, but sometimes added by superscription and a few times omitted; trema; once acute accent; a few abbreviations; small horizontals above numerals; a few scribal errors and orthographic mistakes
several corrections, sometimes made by a second hand, which also filled in a couple of places in col. 1 left blank by the copyist: addition mostly by superscription, sometimes by insertion; deletion by crossing through; a few times a letter has been overwritten with another one
abbreviated marginal annotation; marginal signs: diplÍ, ancora or oblique stroke (col. 2.18)?, x-looking sign, oblique strokes
the diplÍ-like signs at the end of some lines may be interpreted as 'quotations marks', at least if they are not mere line-fillers (Mouraviev)
Handsmall, leaning forward, roughly bilinear, mixed hand of the oval type, with contrast between narrow (?, ?, ? and ?) and broad letters (especially ?, ?, ? and ?), the two semicircles of ? are at the bottom almost reduced to a single horizontal stroke; written by Johnson's 'Oxy. scribe A5'; assigned to the latter part of the second century by Haslam and to the late second/early third century by Johnson; correction by a second, cursive hand
