John Rylands Library, Papyrus Greek 458.
extant fragment of a bible MS, consisting of portions of four columns
of a roll of papyrus extracted from the cartonnage of a mummy acquired
in 1917 by Dr Rendel Harris.
It is written in a fine book-hand, which
can be assigned to the second century BC & contains Deut.xi.24-xxiv.3,
xxv.1-3, xxvi.12, 17-19, xxviii.31-33.
Small through these fragments
are, their great age gives them a special interest, & it is noteworthy
that they concur with the next earliest extant Septuagint MS (963) in
agreeing with the vellum uncials Θ & A rather than B.
