A Second-Century AD Letter of Introduction in the Washington State University Collection
Second Century AD, Early Christianity, Christianity writings
Recently the papyrological holdings of the Manuscripts, Archives & Special ColÂlections Library at Washington State University (WSU) was added to the APIS database. The small collection comprises eight documents, seven written in Greek and one in Arabic, that span from the second century BC to the eighth century AD. The collection was acquired in the early 1970s when Earle Connette, head Librarian of the Manuscripts-Archives Division at WSU, arranged for the purchase of these fragments through Alan E. Samuel.  The largest piece in this collection is a rectÂangular papyrus that measures 13.3 cm (H) by 8.5 cm (W) and carries the inventory number P.WaPS.05.
