      Good catch J. P. It's definitely P.Oxy.LXXVII 5101. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus_Oxyrhynchus_5101

    2. Yes. This is the worst bit, otherwise it is quite substantial - portions of six columns of a papyrus roll, perhaps the earliest extant copy of LXX Psalms. Uses tetragrammaton, no nomina sacra. Suggests probably Jewish.

    3. Even more: nomina Sacra in paleo-Hebrew.
