Papyrus Fouad 266b Recreation


The Papyrus Fouad #266 is a fragment of a series of papyrus scrolls found in the Fayyum in Egypt. It is dated to the first century BC and contains sections of the Greek Old Testament known as the Septuagint (LXX) and is the second oldest LXX in existence This fragment is important because of the use of the Tetragrammaton or the Divine name which is written in ancient Hebrew among the Greek text. It appears the writer wrote the Greek text first while leaving the space for the Tetragrammaton which was written in later. This section contains some of the most perfect LXX text of Deuteronomy that we have. The text was originally written on scrolls of which we have 117 fragments left. This is a handmade reproduction on papyrus. The papyrus group is approx 7 x 4 inches mounted in an 8 by 10 inch frame.
