      In the latest issue of Novum Testamentum is an article by P.W. Comfort, in
      which he makes interesting observations (not all new):
      P.W. Comfort "New Reconstructions and Identifications of NT Papyri"
      NovT 41 (1999) 214 - 230

      1. Assigning MSS to the same codex:

      a) P4 + P64 + P67 ("convinced beyond doubt")
      b) P15 + P16 ("most likely are from the same codex")
      c) P49 + P65 ("very likely belong to the same codex", "same scribe")
      d) P77 + POxy4405 + POxy 4403(?, "more likely") (already stated in the
      Ed.Pr.)

      2. New identifications:

      P4: Comfort mentiones three small fragments that are in a separate envelope
      inside the box with the other fragments. He assigns them to Luke.

      P13: He assigns a small strip to Heb 10:29-32

      P30: Another small strip assigned to 2Thes 2:1 and 2:9-11

      P40: two remaining unassigned fragments assigned to Rom 6

      P46: Assignment of several final lines

      P66: "A paleographic study of the second correctors handwriting reveals that
      the first paginator is the same as the second corrector..."
      Stages of production:
      1. Some corrections as the scribe wrote
      2. The paginator of the first part (p. 1-99) made many corrections.
      3. At page 100 a second paginator/corrector took over. He made further
      corrections.
      4. Yet another corrector (possibly the second paginator) made a few changes
      esp. in ch. 13.
      Did I got that right?

      Comfort also assigns (or tries to assign) seven of the many very small scaps
      of P66.

      Best wishes
      Wieland
