New Greek Psalms Manuscript

Antony Perrot recently pointed out an article by Klaas Worp to me that will be of interest to readers of this blog: "Psalm 9.22-26 in a 4th-Century Papyrus from the Western Desert in Egypt" in Vetus Testamentum, Volume 66, Issue 3, pages 473 – 478.

First edition of a Psalm fragment on a Greek papyrus coming from a settlement in the Western desert of Egypt. Discussion of its religious background (Jewish, Manichaean,or Christian?) and of its possible use, as an amulet? Attention is paid to a textual variant.
