New Coptic MS of Jeremiah Identified

Alin Suciu has identified a new Coptic fragment of Jeremiah 21:14-22:20 (LXX) in the British Museum here. He suspects a 7th or 8th century date here. This is a significant new find, as it fills a gap in an ancient version that is only extant for a little over 50% of the book of Jeremiah. The images below are available on the website of the British Museum.
