- In the 1986 edition, selections visible through Google Books, it clearly says "P4" on page 48.Best regards,Ross Caldwell> To: firstname.lastname@example.org

Or at least, I'm not aware of anyone describing P4 as a lectionary. Does anyone have the French edition (1991) or Vaganay's first edition (1934) to see if something was confused in transmission?

- Thanks for the responses. I meant to follow up on this. After reading Carroll Osburn's essay on the lectionaries in the new Ehrman & Holmes volume (The Text of the NT in Cont Res; 2d ed), I suspect that Amphoux and Vaganay meant P2, P3, and P44... at least those are also cited by the Alands as probable papyrus lectionaries. And p6, p34, p43, and p62 are also in the discussion. My initial inquiry here was because I was wondering if Amphoux & Vaganay had possibly mistyped p4 for p43 (which I've been analyzing)... but I think it's probably a typo for p2.
