It appears that Jim did a copy and paste job from the Perseus
web site's Duke Database of Documentary Papyri.  This also
explains why Jim's context is the last half of one sentence
and the first half of another.  The full sentences are:

META THN ANAGNWSIN, SABEINOS EPARCOS AIGUPTOS SERHNWi hRHTORI,
EIPEN: ANAGNWQI KAI SU NOMON.  SELEUKOS SUNERGOS EIPEN: KAI
META SEOUHRON PANTES hOI hEGOUMENOI hOUTWS APEFHANTO.

The cited document is the minutes of prefect Appius Sabinus
concerning a law court.
