Old Testament: Esther E16 - 9.3: late first or early second century AD
This handsome manuscript, the second of its three columns complete, is the only
known papyrus of Esther in roll-form, and the only papyrus MS. to have this passage.
A roll (as opposed to a codex) is a rare format
for Biblical texts, and may point to a Jewish provenance.
