Commentary

Remarks

The leaf consists of two fragments, IOL Toch 198 proper to the left, and IOL Toch 196 to the right.
According to Broomhead 1962: 181, both fragments are written in small ductus and slightly abraded (with IOL Toch 196 still being fairly clear). Five line manuscript, but IOL Toch 198 has six lines on the verso.
