Twelve Oxyrhynchus papyri housed in the Special Collections of the Wright Library are included in the APIS (Advanced Papyrological Information System) database hosted by Columbia University. All the available information on the PTS papyri is publicly accessible at For information about viewing these papyri, contact Special Collections.

These papyri (which include, inter alia, three LXX fragments, two NT fragments, a fourth-century fragment of Isocrates, and several fascinating documentary papyri) constitute a small but important collection. The APIS records include data from the original published editions of Grenfell and Hunt, handwritten notes by Professors William Park Armstrong and Bruce Manning Metzger, and other notes as well.
