The Gospel of Matthew 28: 6-16; 18-20 (Forgery)



Papyrus inscribed in Greek text in 1860 by Constantine Simonides; which he described as being two pages from the Gospel of Matthew 28: 6-16; 18-20; colophon. pp. 30, 31, 48-50. The papyrus is stuck down on a sheet of card which is stuck to a larger sheet of card with other fragments of papyri with forged texts from the Gospel of Matthew. The card is annotated in ink by Constantine Simonides (in Greek), for public display. The papyrus is most likely ancient but the text now written on it is a modern forgery.
