Hp. Epid. 3.1.9-12. Fragment (11.1 x 12.2 cm) of a papyrus roll containing on the recto remains of two columns of writing (verso is blank). The lower margin survives to a length of 4.4 cm; the intercolumniation is ca. 2 cm wide. A diple marks the beginning of a new section (Hp. Epid. 3.1.12) at col. II, l. 7; the purpose of the horizontal stroke in the right margin at col. II, l. 11 is unclear. The fragment preserves significant portions of Hp. Epid. 3.1.9-12: the relationship between the papyrus and the indirect tradition of Gal. In Hipp. Epid. III comment. CMG 5.10.2, 95ff. Wenkebach is of some importance, exhibiting a good number of correct readings as against the medieval manuscripts (e.g. col. I: [ἀ]ποφθο[ρῆς] [ll. 5-6], [ἀσώδης] [l. 9]; col. II: ἀγορῇ [l. 9]; see Roselli 2008, 145, 147-8). The script is a rightward-sloping majuscule assignable to the end of the 3rd cent. AD.

    οὐκ ἔτι V [apud Roselli 2008] οὐδὲν GalLC. Reasons of space suggest the first reading.

  • 9.

    That ἀσώδης (GalLC : om. V recc.) stood in the papyrus is likely since without it the line is of rather shorter than average length.

    According to the manuscript tradition, the sequence ΠΙΘΔΥΑ should occur at the end of Hp. Epid. 3.1.10 (see Kuhlew.); contra pap.
