Unidentified fragments of P84
Since I posted this the first time some years ago, nothing has happened. The case is still open.
I have some more on P84 in the Mark section of the paleographical problems section of the commentary:
Wieland Willker, Bremen, Germany
- I had a brief go and didn't find anything. Some of them look like
they should be doable given time.
i) read the identified fragments first - gets you acquainted with the
hand and the extant portions (both of which are important since
fragments are more likely to have broken off other fragments)
ii) ignore the transcriptions provided and make your own
iii) beaware of either/or letters (e.g. gamma/tua) which are
relatively certain to be one or the other
iv) look for solid two or three letter sequences (searchable on TLG)
v) sift through a lot of stuff
vi) win your prize
