On Tuesday 5 January 1999 at 9:12AM, Jim West opined, regarding ancient
witnesses to the GNT: 

<<>and John frag at 110)?


I'd heard a date of somewhere in the late 120's or early 130's (one of
Raymond E. Brown's articles in The New Jerome Biblical Commentary; either
"Texts and Versions" or "Canonicity") for (was it?) P52, but I hadn't heard
of an earlier witness, or an earlier date, either for that scrap of
parchment or another.  What are the arguments for a date earlier than
Brown's postulation?
