P.Köln (Pap. Theol. 53—60) + P.BYU (091 D562e) Three Binding Strips Preserving Sirach (38.28.4—39.4.4)
Parchment, Papyrus, Psalms, Bookbinding
In 1941 portions of eight Codices were discovered south of Cairo while searching for a munitions dump dur ing the last World War. The Codices would eventually be called the Tura Codices, and through certain twists of fate the Codices were ultimately divided and sold. Portions of one of the Codices, Didymus the Blind's Commentary on Psalms (Codex V), found their way to Brigham Young University (091 D562e) and Köln (Pap. Theol. 53-60).1 The sections of Tura Codex V housed at Brigham Young University and Köln contain three parchment strips with writing on them that were used to strengthen the binding of the papyru codex.
