Papyrus 65

Papyrus 65 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by \mathfrak{P}65, is a copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the First Epistle to the Thessalonians. The surviving texts of the epistle are the verses 1:3-2:1 and 2:6-13. The manuscript has been assigned on palaeographic grounds to the 3rd century.[1]


The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. Aland placed it in Category I, but text of the manuscript is too brief for certainty.[1] According to Comfort \mathfrak{P}49 and \mathfrak{P}65 came from the same manuscript.[2][3]


It is currently housed at the Papyrological Institute of Florence in National Archaeological Museum (Florence) (PSI 1373).[1][4]
