Papyrus 13 was discovered by Bernard Grenfell and Arthur Hunt in Oxyrhynchus, Egypt. It is currently housed at the British Library, Inv. Nr. 1532, and Egyptian Museum, SR 3796 25/1/55/2 (11), or PSI 1292.[4]

The surviving text is twelve columns of 23 to 27 lines each, from a scroll. This is all from the Epistle to the Hebrews, namely 2:14-5:5; 10:8-22; 10:29-11:13; 11:28-12:17. Its presence of pagination[5] 47-50 means that Hebrews was preceded by only one book in the original scroll, likely the Epistle to the Romans as in Papyrus 46.[6] It is the largest papyrus manuscript of the New Testament outside the Chester Beatty Papyri.[7]

It was written on the back of a papyrus containing the Epitome of Livy[8] and some scholars think the manuscript was possibly brought to Egypt by a Roman official and left behind when he left his post.[9]

It has errors of itacism[10] (ι and ει, ε and αι, υ and οι).[11]

Papyrus 13 is a representative of the Alexandrian text-typeAland placed it in Category I.[12]

It bears strong textual affinity with Codex Vaticanus and also has an 80% agreement with Papyrus 46. It has numerous distinctive readings.[2]

Papyrus 13 is written recto-verso,[13] with the verso (back) containing Hebrews and the recto (front) containing part of Livy’s History of Rome, dated to around 200 CE.[14]

Philip Comfort,

This manuscript was originally dated to the fourth century by Grenfell and Hunt, even though they stated that the manuscripts found with it were predominantly of the third century—such as P. Oxy. 654 (ca. 250) and one third-century libelli. There was even a second-century manuscript, P. Oxy 656 (Genesis), among the lot. Manuscripts comparable to P13 in handwriting style are as follows: (1) P. Oxy. 852 (175–225), which is very similar; (2) P. Oxy. 2635 (no later than ca. 200), which has many similarities, especially the long-tailed swooping upsilon; and (3) P. Oxy. 1016 (ca. 200–225), with some similarities. These manuscripts suggest a date of about 200 for P13, but it is necessary to date it 225–250 because P13 was written on the verso of P. Oxy. 657 (part of the Epitome of Livy’s history of Rome), dated ca. 200.

The pagination reveals that other epistles may have preceded this one—perhaps Romans, as in P46. The text of Hebrews was written in a reformed documentary hand. Because it was written on the back of a papyrus containing the Epitome of Livy, some scholars think the manuscript was possibly brought to Egypt by a Roman official and left behind when he left his post.

There are many similarities between P13 and P46. Out of a total of eighty-eight variation units, there are seventy-one agreements and only seventeen disagreements. The copyists of P13 and P46 made similar use of double points for punctuation, and the pagination of both documents indicates that Romans preceded Hebrews in P13 as well as in P46.[15]

The work covers the period from the legends concerning the arrival of Aeneas and the refugees from the fall of Troy to the city’s founding in 753, the expulsion of the Kings in 509, and down to Livy’s own time, during the reign of the emperor Augustus.
