Epistle of James (Forgery)



Forged text from the Epistle of James of the New Testament (Simonides' fragment VI) created by Constantine Simonides in 1860. The papyrus was stuck to cardboard by Simonides as a group for display in Joseph Mayer’s Egyptian Museum at 8 Colquitt Street. The papyrus is most likely ancient but the text is a modern forgery.
