I have had this request come to me; I haven't responded to it  
personally because I believe translation of a papyrus Greek text  
involves skills that go far beyond those of people handling texts  
that are intact: there's so much intelligent guesswork required  
regarding lacunae and rare words, and usually consensus on the  
meaning of a badly-mutilated papyrus is not that readily reached. In  
my perspective therefore, translating a mutilated papyrus text  
requires extraordinary skills. If anyone feels so endowed, he or she  
might contact Sue McMullen at the e-address indicated. Please send  
all replies OFF-LIST. Thanks.
