Abstract

Edition of a Greek papyrus in the collection of the University of Michigan (P.Mich. inv. 1568v).P.Mich. inv. 1568v 11 cm by 9.5 cm (H. x W.) ca. AD 187/8In some respects P.Mich. inv. 1568v is a rather unexceptional piece, sinceit only contains a few fragmentary lines from a report of proceedings, about which little can be ascertained with certainty given the many lacunae and gaps in the text. Yet it deserves to be published for one noteworthy feature: it is written in red ink and is therefore a welcome addition to a very small corpus of such documents.
